Maura Harp btn_lipservice.gif

Harp: Can you drive a manual car?
Maura: To be honest, I learned a little probably a little bit, probably about 10 or 15 years ago now and it was difficult. I liked it but I stalled the car a lot.
Harp: Same thing. I learned how to do it a long time ago.
Maura: So sometimes when you’re driving, and this is something that annoys everybody, you might have a backseat driver.
Harp: I have to admit I’m a backseat driver.
Maura: It’s annoying, isn’t it?
Harp: It’s probably annoying for the driver, but because I’m the one doing it, I don’t think it’s annoying.
