Dear Scott,

We always spend Memorial Day weekend at my Aunt and Uncle’s house in South Carolina. My wife and I both prefer that I do the driving. But that doesn’t prevent my wife from directing me the entire time. We fight nearly every time we get in the car now because I want her to just let me drive and she insists on freaking out over everything little thing that happens on the road. What is it about my wife and other women that cause them to become the backseat driver from hell? Why can’t these women just keep their mouths shut and how can we make them understand how dangerous they are to our driving?
