10. The Car Won’t Shut Up
When Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and onboard navigation were in their infancy a decade ago, it was pretty cool that they could talk. Hearing your vehicle bark out directions to you as you drove was really neat, we all thought. Today though, your car will not stop talking to you. From telling you to fasten your seatbelt, alerting you to approaching pedestrians and pointing out that you just missed your exit on the highway, cars today have morphed into a nagging old woman. Plus, they pepper you with endless questions while you’re driving. “Would you like the temperature raised?” “Who should I call for you?” “Are you attempting to back-up?” High-end onboard navigation and infotainment systems have become the ultimate backseat drivers to us all. They’re worse than a group of kids in the backseat chanting “Are we there yet?” Shut up already!
