10 Most Annoying Passenger Habits

Imagine having a four hour car journey ahead of you with the world’s most annoying passenger. Are you left wishing they would just drive instead?

by Eilidh

There’s nothing worse than being stuck in the car with an annoying passenger. It’s not like you can just pull over and kick them out… right? 👀 Here are our top 10 most annoying passenger habits. Can you relate?

1. The Invisible Brake

So, your mate thinks you’re going a bit too fast. What do they do? They slam on their imaginary brake, of course! Like seriously, what are you trying to achieve?

2. Going anywhere near the radio

You know when you’re really getting into that song, and giving a Grammy worthy performance? Then your passenger changes the channel! Out of nowhere! Do they not realise that the radio is out of bounds?

3. Complaining it’s too hot/cold

Just change it yourself! I’m trying to drive, I don’t want to be looking down at the dials every 2 seconds to cater to your ever-fluctuating heat preferences.

4. Are we there yet?

*Flashback to Donkey harassing Shrek on their journey to Far Far Away*. CLEARLY NOT. If we were there, would I still be driving?

5. Looking to see if anything’s coming

You know when they poke their head forward to check if there’s anything coming from the left, completely obstructing your view? Not helpful at all. I’d like to be able to check myself rather than taking your word for it!

6. Neglecting their direction-giving duties

You’re happily cruising down the A road without a care in the world, until your passenger decides to pipe up and say ‘Oh, BTW you need to be taking the next left’. Oh, you mean the left that we are literally just about to pass? Thanks for that.

7. Feet on the dash

Firstly, it’s gross. Secondly, it’s dangerous. Thirdly, it’s super annoying.

8. Dissing your driving skills

‘You’re driving too close to the edge of the lane’, ‘you’re going too slow’, ‘you’re going too fast’. Why don’t they just drive?

9. ‘Look at that!’

When your over-excited passenger wants you to look at every single nice house, herd of sheep or tree you drive past. Look, I don’t care if you just saw a bright pink flying llama, I am trying to concentrate, and I can’t just look whenever you want me to. It’s distracting!

10. Leaving their rubbish

So you’ve put up with your passenger’s annoying behaviour all the way throughout the journey and you have finally got them out of your car. Only, they didn’t take their rubbish with them! Does my car look like a waste storage facility to you?
