By Anonymous - Australia
Today, I drove into a cluster of dustbins thanks to my dozy cat who'd managed to get into my car, fall asleep, and wake up while I was driving to work. I lost control when I was startled by him staring at me in the rear-view mirror. FML

Funny how different states have different words for things. I live in Nsw here we call it rubbish bin.
Tad off topic, can anyone from victoria tell me what a scallop is? ...

115 - They used to be cans until cities started regulating trash pick up & required usage of the square plastic containers. Though I highly doubt the usage of the term trash can will cease anytime soon.

156 - It's bad that we find other cultures intriguing because we haven't been exposed to it? I mean if you'd like us to be completely selfish & arrogant & think our culture is the only one in the world, I'm sure the majority would be happy to oblige. *roll eyes* And besides, it's not just Americans who find it interesting when someone else uses a different term for something.

All cats are trained assassins. Stay nice to them pet them and feed them or your dead. I've seen my cat attack a bird mid flight.

I am very much afraid of my cat… be thankful your cat let you live another day op

What does his cat startling him have anything to do with his qualifications of being a licensed driver?
He probably got his drivers license by taking a drivers-ed course, passing the driving test, and going to a DMV or something of the sort and getting the rectangular card that has his picture on it and shows where he lives and what not.. That is probably how he got his drivers license.

I think the point was you need to be able to maintain control of your car. Even if, a cat scares you. e.g. If a car pulls out in front of you, you need to be able to maintain control of the car and hit the brakes.

I'm sorry, do they test for unexpected, unlikely attacks by unusual means during driving exams? What? Does the instructor randomly pull out a nerf gun and start shooting you while you try to parallel park? I didn't think so, therefore it's not a requirement to drive, therefore op may be a perfectly qualified driver, who when startled by cats occasionally drives off the road.

23, Getting a license in Australia is a bit more complicated than that xP
We have 3 different tests, as well as a log book for 25/50 hours over a minimum of 6 months where you have to drive with someone who's had their license for at least 4 years.
