Angry Dont Let Them Drive Your Truck!

Anyone have any stories about why your wife/ gf/ child isn't allowed to drive your truck anymore?

I let my gf drive it 3 times
First time she put it into the ditch trying to pull onto the hwy thinking it was an exit to the parking lot. Lasted a good 15 seconds behind the wheel.
Second time she drove off into a ditch on a gravel road. I honesty have no idea how that happened.
Third and final time on the same gravel road she decided to turn around in the woods and run the truck up against a 3 ft wide tree and managed to pin the drivers side door shut. I heard the bang and the scrapping sounds. I yelled WTF was that!?!?!? Her reply... "its just a bush"

Its equally heart breaking when you and your wife go truck shopping and you pick out a nice F250 to pull your camper and haul wood and she says "I've had bigger". haha

She delivered grain and seed with a medium duty truck/trailer when she lived at home years ago so its nice to be able to swap seats with her on long trips without the stress of death and/or serious financial ruin.

I don't worry about truck damage as much as having to clean her trash/junk out of the cab

Not only does she not need to drive your truck, she needs to be removed from the road for everyone else's safety
My wife hates to drive my truck, so I never have to worry about it.

After my Dad died I got this 98 Dodge 1500. It had all of like 23k miles on it. To me it was brand new. The very FIRST time my wife took the truck to Wal-Mart,she was at a complete stop waiting at a stop sign and a drunk didn't make the turn and hit her head on. She was fine and so was the drunk. Dads truck not so much. When she called me at work to tell me of the wreck she was crying so hard I thought for sure someone got hurt or worse.
Now she refuses to drive my 2005 truck.

I'd rather be hit head on by a drunk while sitting in my F250 than in my little commuter honda civic.... especially if the drunk driver is driving an F250 lol
