Driving Lessons

Wake your teenager up on a Saturday morning... early.  Like maybe around 7AM or so.  Tell them that if they want to get their driving in for the day it will have to happen now or not at all.  After they get up, shower, dress and eat and finally make it to the car, wait until you're out of the drive way and headed away from your house.  Then announce, "We might as well hit up Walmart while we're out."

This is kind of a silent way of getting paid for the bad driving you must endure because now you have someone to lift the heavy items from shelves that are too high for you to reach, someone to stay with the cart while you dive down an aisle for one or two things and someone to load all the groceries in the trunk!  It's like hitting two birds with one stone!  Actually three... the driving, the errand and the annoying your teenager.

Result = "Seriously?  Gawd Mom!  Why didn't you tell me that when you woke me up?  I would have opted out of driving today!"
