I would like some advise on how to get "through" to my ENTP friend.
Me and my friend will be chatting as he is driving and all of a sudden he will come to a stop at a corner. Never mind that the light is GREEN and that there are vehicles behind him. Also when the light changes from red to green I often have to point out to him that he has a green light. I am loathe to do this but sometimes there aren't people behind us to beep at him and prompt him to move so it falls on me. Mind you, this is 8+ seconds after the light change. I wonder if that is a ticketable offense? He doesn't mind this at all and is genuinely thankful about the fact that he has a co-pilot... :steam: I don't want to co-pilot!
Yeah, he is a "slight" sensortard. His lane "integrity" (how well he stays within his lane) is atrocious. About every 5 minutes of driving = 1 instance of him driving on the lane divider or crossing the lane briefly.
Needless to say I ALWAYS buckle up. I've even started poking fun at him in the hopes that he will at least try to keep his mind on the driving. He is 48 btw, and has had plenty of driving years under his belt, which when you think about it, is kinda miraculous.
I'm thinking I should do my part and just avoid conversation while he is driving. Yeah right! He is an E after all and when I stop giving him verbal feedback he just keeps yacking away totally oblivious to the fact that he has been speaking non stop for 10 minutes.
Other than offering to do the driving when we hang out, which he almost always goes along with, I do not know what to do. The few occasions when I became alarmed and pointed out his lack of paying attention to his driving, usually after an incident, he became all butt hurt and he tends to hold grudges.
