One of the things why I like my mother sitting in the backseat is so to keep her from arguing with the driver (aka my father), because naturally the constant nagging is just a little unpleasant to the ears. However, no matter where she is seated, neither how hard I try to calm her down, I always end up unsuccessful, and my father being no less than annoyed.
We left the house at around 10:30pm last night in hopes of arriving our destination at least before midnight. But Papa opted not to take the freeway due to his reading difficulties without street lights, therefore, we took another route which unfortunately brought us disorientation. We were only looking for Shell, and before we knew it, we were lost. A little over 15 minutes of squabbling, shutting them up on my part, we finally found the entry to the right path. And as soon as I saw the AMC logo from afar, I told Mama with glee...
Me: "Ma, there's the Stone Briar mall, we're already close by!"
Mama: "Yeah, if your Papa only listened to me, you should have seen that logo a long time ago."
But in events like this, my mother's navigating skills can be very useful, although she has a tendecy to be inevitably cantankerous. Hence I think my father should learn how to start listening to his human-GPS behalf. It can only take us on a peaceful ride each time. (:
