    It happens to me fairly often. Occasionally I have been distracted enough that I've driven past the exit I was supposed to take, and only "wake up" when I realize my surroundings are completely unfamiliar.

    I've done that too many times. It's a joke among my friends. Glad to hear I'm not alone
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Me, too.
    I'm used to doing it, and if my step-father is near, he slaps me and calls me incompetent. I wish I would stop doing it, since everyone I know thinks it's on purpose…
    I try to stay aware, but it's like I drift…
    …especially if a task is boring in and of itself…

    That's a super shitty thing for him to do. While paying attention while driving, like many other mundane tasks, is important, I like all the places my mind goes. I hope you can get away from that negativity soon.

    Yeah I have to agree with @nicolita there. That is really not cool of your step-father. Next time he does it you should get him back... tell him you just washed off the dashboard with some great smelling product or get him to look in the glove compartment for something then while he is down next to the dashboard slam on the brakes. The feelings of justice will flow over you like waves of relaxation on a cool spring morning. And then he'll probably slap you, but it will be completely worth it.

    Thank you…
    I plan to move off and try to really decide what is important in life. I have a career in mind, teaching, which would correlate to a degree in secondary education. I am about to study more of my Spanish, now…
    I'll be back in a bit.

    We are doing numbers 1-10, greetings, and common questions…

    It happens to me all the time too. Where I used to live I would drive an hour home everyday in traffic and at least once a week I would miss my exit and drive like 15 or 20 min out of my way before I realized I had been zoned out.

I'm wondering if this is a type 9 thing, INTP thing, or just a me thing. This ever happen to any of you?
    Yeah, this happens a lot. But I think everyone does this. We switch to autopilot and let Jesus take the wheel. Brain starts making mental leaps, coming to, forgetting everything it just thought. If it were thinking at all.

    Maybe driving just turns us into drones.

    Hence why I didn't find joy driving to work any more at all. What is the point of having a nice car with plenty of ponies, when you have to be frustrated by traffic. Public transport is doing it for me.
