Top 5 Things You Don't Want to Hear From SideKick or Co-Driver

While you are driving or pulling your RVs what are the things you hear from inside the cab which make you cringe?

My top five:

1. Oh, I just spilled my coffee.

2. You know, I think I left my ___________ at the last stop.

3. We were supposed to get off at the exit we just passed.

4. I'm freezing OR I'm way too hot.

5. Have you seen my ___________, I know I had it a minute ago.

Any of these make you look at your dearly beloved and grin? What are your top 5?

1. That car looks exactly like our toad... And Look!! There is NO ONE driving it!!!
2. No, I thought YOU unhooked the shore power!
3. Do you think this vanity mirror makes you look larger?? (Slip away quietly... no eye contact on this one, boys.)
4. Honey, did you remember to untie Rover from the picnic table?
5. Now... Did you tell me that there should or should NOT be lots of water in the toilet bowl while we are driving down the road like this??

Jim,

You are very good at this game!

People are going to have a hard time topping you.

Let's hope they try. This is going to be waaaaaaay too much fun.

Thanks for the quick response.

Oh my Jim!

You are making me nervous now! I can only hope you didn't hear them all in the same day.

Oh boy, can I relate to this thread!!

Most disconcerting when heard about 5 to 10 minutes after pullin out of a campground and rollin down the road:

#1: ......"Oh, oh !!"
#2: ......"What's that noise ??"
#3: ......"Have you seen the cat lately ??"
#4: ......"Did ya take the water regulator from this last stop ??"
#5: ......"One click, Neutral,Brake Off ??"(re: whether I set up the toad correctly for towning. Probably DID, but NOW I start to worry.)

1. Did I forget to take that Antenna Up sign down or....

2. Pretty sure I pushed the black tank valve closed.

3. I smell propane... did you disconnect the BBQ at the extend-a-stay valve or at the BBQ?

4. Opps... Sorry, guess I should have told you the steps didn't go out this morning.

5. Should there be smoke coming from there?

1) "What's that smell?"
2) "Why did you lock the dog in the bathroom?...........he IS in the bathroom.....right?"
3) "Is it true the Police radar can't pick up a fiberglass M/H?"
4) (As she peers intently into the B/U Camera trying to see past the sun's glare) "Would we hear something if the Toad fell off?"
5) THE WORST, A cell phone call from the last Truck Stop "Why did you move the M/H so far from the fuel island and where's the Toad?"...................."Oh Oh, that's not you is it!"

My altime favorite while driving on a lane road. "QUICK, QUICK, GET OVER" Now does that mean to the left or to the right? A close second is WATCH OUT!!!!

As the navigator:
1. What state are we in?
2. What direction are we going?
3. There are no more rest areas on this road?
4. I see it, the campground turn is over there.
5. Turn at the next corner.

And as the navigator the most common sound heard is:
6. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
This is after she gets herself a snack and nothing for me.
