Biggest Driving Compliment

Just out of curiosity, what was the biggest compliment (or complaint) you've been given about your driving? It's been something I've been thinking about recently, and I think for me, it was when I got the keys to my mom's cousins Fiat Bravo diesel and told to go nuts on the Italian countryside in Pescara. As I was driving around beating his little car, he turned to me and said 'wow, you drive like an Italian!' It means alot to me because you have to be a certified nut to drive in Italy, as it's not uncommon to do things like overtake in oncoming lanes and to reverse on the highway. Anyways, that was mine, what's yours?

I have a hard time maintaining speed, so its a little up and down an throttle play. Thats the most common complaint at least.

I don't really get any compliments. lol
I'm a safe/slow driver with people in the car. I save fun driving for solo runs. If I'm going to die, I don't plan to take someone else with me.

My wife has the same mindset as you. I can do whatever I want as long as she is not in the car.
If she is with me, all I can do is 5 over, MAYBE 10 over without her complaining.

But... yano... If i do die she gets my 400K life insurance.. so maybe thats why.
