Drivers Reveal The Weirdest Things They've Seen Someone Do Behind The Wheel

Cars are sacred personal spaces and people do weird things in them, though they're not always safe. Eating, shaving, putting on makeup, playing instruments, even having sex occur while driving. But some drivers do some really strange things behind the wheel, and thankfully someone noticed.

SpookyMolder7 asked, What's the weirdest thing you've seen someone do while driving?

Fella has some serious hands-free skills.

Fella was behind me at a light and unwrapped a cheeseburger. The light turned green and he put both hands back on the wheel and proceeded to eat the whole cheeseburger with no hands. One of the most bizarre things I've ever seen. Really funny though.

A meat mask with cheese and crackers. What's not to love?

Was stopped at an intersection and looked at the car next to me. Guy took a piece of deli meat and bit mouth and eye holes in it to then place on his face to wear as a sort of mask. Followed by randomly placing cheese and crackers on the deli meat on his face. He then turned and smiled at me with a thumbs up.

Oh Portland...

This has bad idea written all over it.

Read a book

She had the book on the steering wheel.

Well, potatoes are the apples of the ground (at least in French)...

Passed an old red truck that was going about ten below the speed limit. When I passed him I saw he was holding a baked potato and was eating it like an apple. He was the most content looking man I'd ever seen.

Someone came prepared for intense traffic. Nicely done.

I was stuck in dead still traffic on the Schuylkill Expressway in Philadelphia in the middle of July-people who know the hell that is the Schuylkill can fully appreciate this story-

Anyway, we are dead stopped and no one is getting on or off this road. Its been a standstill for over an hr and it's miserable and hot. I look next to me and the driver in the next lane is chowing down on an ice cream cone. Soft serve.

I have no idea where he got it. No one was moving on this road. We were not close to any off ramps that could be gotten to in any reasonable amount of time, keeping a cone of soft serve in a cooler in your car seems unlikely...and with how immovable this traffic was, there was no f_cking way he had just stopped off for a cone..

I'm flummoxed to this day.

Tl;dr: icecream wizard on the Schuylkill

3 limbs. 2 horns. Who knows which will prevail.

Saw a guy driving on a highway in Maryland using his foot to steer while he played the clarinet. It was actually pretty impressive.

Easy to explain: some people just obliviously aim their car.

This is a bit hard to explain.

In a small, suburban street, a woman drove past the turn she was looking for and stopped about 20 meters down the road. So she started reversing at high speed to get back to her turn. However, another car had just pulled out of the street, heading in the opposite direction...so the reversing woman smashed the back of her car into the back of the other car.

When your lazy game is really on point.

Walking their dog. Yes, I saw someone driving and their dog was on a leash from the car while the dog was walking outside. O_o

Your skills are noted but I'm gtfo out.

I'm pretty surprised she survived to adulthood- Christmas 2007 I saw my sister smoke a cigarette, talk on the phone, while eating a meal (complete with a beverage), driving a stick shift all while putting on her makeup. Icy roads be damned. I was terrified.

This isn't weird this is amazing.

Saw a pickup truck hauling an upright piano with a man playing it as the vehicle moved down the road.

The pianist appeared to be "strapped" to the piano to keep him from bouncing around during transit. He just kept playing and grinning as people stared in amazement.

Let's go for a ride.

A couple having sex.. the girl was on top. I couldn't understand how he didn't crash. It was also the middle of the day which made it much harder to believe.

BIG PLOT TWIST BELOW. YOU WON'T BELIEVE IT.

I once saw a BMW driver paying attention to other vehicles, driving sensibly and (you might want to sit down) indicating every lane change. I was so shocked, I dropped my phone into my bowl of soup, which splashed up and ruined my newspaper.

It's a little weird to stick a pig on a moped.

Sounds like someone's about to get sent to Belize.

Driving to Vegas from LA my buddy and I saw a van strangely backing up into the desert abyss. Like, completely off the paved road. The driver and passenger both had sacks/bags over their heads. We were both freaked out and speechless for the rest of the ride.

When you gotta go, you gotta go.

Technically they pulled over to do it, but they abruptly flung open the car door and had explosive diarrhea all over the side of the road on the freeway. I felt so bad for them because as hard as they tried to shield themselves with their car door, everyone could definitely see their butt.

There's no better place to feel yourself than in your car, but do it safely please...

Driving on the highway one morning for work hit some traffic and slowed a bit. Had the window down and started hearing some crazy jam band music blasting from the car coasting along next to me so I looked over and dude was straight rocking out on his tambourine with both hands while screaming out the lyrics. He was steering with his knees and id swear his eyes were closed for the whole 20 seconds I spent admiring him.

He's a modern day knight, cruising for justice.

Last Monday I saw someone behind me on a moped holding a sword while driving.

Driving while tired is the same as driving drunk... try to avoid it.

Nodding off while doing 80mph down the Mass Pike. Somehow she didn't cause an accident, despite repeatedly drifting into the median and making full use of all 3 lanes.

I think my corn is getting tired, best let it get some air before I continue eating it.

Try as I might, there are some true crime cases that I can't get out of my head. Some are frightening. Others are disturbing. And then there's that special category of cases that continue to haunt me and that I keep going back to.

I have always been especially perturbed by the case of Sylvia Likens, who in the mid-1960s was tortured by Gertrude Basniewski, a woman who took care of Likens while her parents were away on business. What makes the case especially concerning is the way Basniewski recruited her own children––and even children and teenagers around the neighborhood––to join her in the abuse. The case is one of the most infamous child abuse cases of all time and I warn you to read about it at your own risk. (If you're interested, the drama film An American Crime, featuring Catherine Keener as Basniewski and Elliott Page as Sylvia Likens, is one film about the case. The Girl Next Door, a horror film based on the events, stars Blanche Baker as a Basniewski surrogate.)

After Redditor litteredbirdnina asked the online community, "What true crime case haunts you?" people told us about the cases that keep them up at night.

Warning: Some sensitive material ahead.

Raising children isn't for everybody. That is a cold, hard fact that everyone should really comprehend. Being a parent is one of the most, if not the most, important jobs in the world, it's a calling really. And being a good parent is essential. Being an unwanted human is the most devastating feeling in life. So that's why I get so aggravated when people try to push others to have children when they're not ready or are unsure. There is so much avoidable pain and heartache by just being honest.

Redditor u/SniperGlizzy was wondering about some of the hard truths when it comes to parenting by asking people to share... [Serious] What is it like to have children you don't want?
