What Road Trip Personality Are You?

As some of you get ready to embark on the classic college road trip - here are a few things to consider before hitting hour 15 and not knowing what you have stepped into.

1. The Sleeping Beauty

The instant the engine starts going and the air conditioning kicks on this person is snoring like the best of them. They often are the ones to talk a big game about road tripping but once that seat is in recline they are out for the count. Word to the wise - be careful before giving them shotgun access.

2. The Small Bladder

This person will need to pee every time you get back on the highway or after a drop of liquid hits their intestines. If you are even considering taking drinks in the car make sure you are aware of the repercussions that will hit after, “Could we make a pit stop?”, is squeaked out.

3. The Hangry One

Hanger is a pure reality for these types of people. Once the words, “I am hungry”, are muttered everyone in the car has a universal understanding that there is a crucial time limit until “I could eat” becomes “I will resort to cannibalism if necessary”.

4. The iPod Shuffler

The classic AUX hog that believes their playlist to be delivered from Beyoncé herself and will make you listen to every one of their songs. Some who find themselves in this personality also are the ones who cannot seem to land on one song and will cut off your favorite song ( “Breaking Free” maybe, who knows) right at the climax of car jamming.

5. The Back Seat Driver

Acts as if Siri is in your car doing a live performance with the questioning of route choices and suggestions for how to improve your lane changing skills. They also tend to have a unique gasp when a vehicle comes to an abrupt stop, say at a stop sign or yellow light.

6. The Dad

This person is very confident in their ability to get you from point A to point B under whatever circumstances come up. Picture The Incredibles scene where they are in the van and you have got a pretty good idea of what to expect from this person.

*in some cases this person will also be a fan of stopping for “The World’s Biggest Ball of Yarn”

7. The Mom

The overall mediator of the group. They will calm the crowds and put on some nice piano music or an audio book to really make it nap time for those around them. Often very protective of the group as a whole - always reminding them to wear seatbelts. They will also probably have snacks, a first aid kit, Kleenex, a lava lamp, and whatever else you need in their bag, so hit them up.
