Calling all car passengers. Here are the 14 most annoying things you can do in someone else’s car.

If you’re hitching a ride from a friend, kindly take note of the following list. It features 14 of the most annoying things you can do as a passenger.

Be warned, you might lose your ride or friendship if you perform any of these actions.

1) Winding down the car windows after a wash.

No one likes water marks, so please refrain from touching the window button/lever.

2) Changing the music without permission.

Excuse me? Who said you could change my music?

3) Place your stinky feet on the dashboard.

This isn’t your house. Keep your feet on the floor unless you want to get booted from my car! Not only is it dangerous, but it’s also very distracting.

4) Littering in the car.

Come on. It’s basic courtesy. You don’t see me littering in your house.

5) Backseat driving.

Kindly exit the vehicle if you’re not happy with my driving.

6) Leaving finger prints on the windows.

If you have to point, please do so without touching the windows. Your greasy prints are hard to remove.

7) Singing aloud.

My car isn’t a karaoke room. Please save it for KTV nights, where there’s alcohol.

8) Drinking too much and puking in my car.

Friendship = over. If you ever puke in my car, you better be the one cleaning it up.

9) Paying more attention to your phone.

If you want to stay on your phone and browse Facebook or Instagram while I’m driving, kindly take a cab the next time instead.

10) Farting in the car with the windows closed.

If you did it on purpose, you’ll never be let into my car again!

11) Closing or opening the car door too hard.

Please don’t take your anger out on my car door.

12) Provide poor or last-minute directions.

If you can’t navigate, kindly do not volunteer your service.

13) Distract me with your talking.

Yes, excessive talking is really distracting when driving. You do want to reach our destination in one piece, right?

14) Complain about my car.

Why are you complaining when I’m the one offering you a free ride? If you aren’t happy, feel free to find an alternative form of transportation.
