Tom Cruise

Today, my wife and I are moving cross-country. At a rest stop, my wife complained of foot pain. I said, "Use your cruise control" and she replied "What's that?" I spent the next 10 mins teaching my 30-year-old wife what cruise control is, how it works, and how it differs from Tesla's autopilot. FML

In that situation I’m not sure if teaching your wife about cruise control would be a good or a bad idea. To use cruise control effectively in any traffic requires paying a lot of attention to the traffic ahead and tweaking the cruise speed up and down as required. It saves your feet and legs, but in some ways actually requires more attention and anticipation. People have different abilities in different areas. We are not all alike, and in reality it’s a good thing - Otherwise life would get boring,

Just you.

We may not all be alike, but in this instance, OP's wife sounds especially stupid.

RTFM Read the F-f-f-fine manual! Whenever you get a car, you should read the owner's manual from cover-to-cover. Doesn't everyone do that, or is it just me?

Just you.

You and my husband lol

ok so she deserves to be made fun of cause she doesn't know what cruise control is? is it really that big if a deal?

First off - So somehow you ‘teaching’ your wife to do something leads to you having a ‘fucked life ‘?!?!?!? Cruise control is not something created to allow you to not pay attention or take your foot off of the controls completely. And ‘knowing how’ to use cruise control in a vehicle doesn’t make you a good driver. Faulting someone for not knowing it doesn’t make you a better driver either.

He’s saying FML because his wife is so clueless she’s never heard of a basic driving tool. Helpless adults who have little experience of the world is real…and sad.
