  4. Oh my gosh the automatic car washes! Me too and I just went in one (in my own car) for the first time last month and I almost lost it. They don't give you directions so I didn't even know that I had to put it in neutral once I got locked into the conveyor thing. Oh my heck I felt like the dumbest girl on the planet! So you're definitely not alone there haha.
