Here is the recorded dialogue from day 1:
We are currently leaving my house and are approaching a stop sign.
Jenn: I usually
ignore stop signs, I treat them as yield signs, unless I know a cop is watching. And my
wheel is really hot right now and it's pissing me off. I also never drive the speed limit
in Hawaii Kai because it #^@%* sucks.
Sheri: What is the speed limit in this area, and what are you driving?
Jenn: The speed limit is 25 mph and I am driving 40 mph, but I think that's the norm
for everyone unless you've been in an accident, or know someone whose been in an accident
in this area...
Oh ho bus!
Sheri: Did you stop too far past the solid line of the stop sign?
Jenn: I guess, I didn't really notice, did I?
Sheri: You must have if you were concerned that the bus was so close.
Jenn: (laughing) Oh yeah, I guess so, it was kind of close. I hate buses because they
are so big and make me nervous... and look at this fricken truck, he's speeding up, sh_t.
He knew I had to change lanes, and it's not as if it would have delayed him any more if I
had cut in front of him.
I think I should also mention that I although I am wearing my seat belt today, I
usually go without one because it is very uncomfortable. If my passenger is wearing a seat
belt, or if it's at night then I put it on. I wear it at night because I can't see as
well. And if I see a big truck or bus then I put it on because I feel like they might
topple into me. Other than that, if I am just driving to and from school, it is very rare
that I am going to be wearing my seat belt.
We are now driving down Kalanianeole Highway on a busy Saturday afternoon. Jennifer's
impatience is starting to show as she yells at a slow truck in front of her. At least her
windows were rolled up.
Jenn: Come on... geez! Make like someone died...Damn ______ gardeners.
I think it definitely calls for some tune time. Awh sh_t, don't do this to me now.
Jennifer is busy fidgeting with her CD player because it is not working properly . She
is obviously getting very frustrated with it, and meanwhile is paying more attention to
the CD player than the road.
Sheri: How are you feeling Jenn, are you annoyed with the traffic?
Jenn: No it's not the traffic, it's my CD player that I'm annoyed with, and I'm okay
now because there is good music on the radio.
Sheri: Do you think the traffic is not bothering you right now because you were
preoccupied with your CD player?
Jenn: I realize that I am not moving fast, but I'm dealing with it because I've got
things to do right now, like talking with you. I'm also not in a rush to get anywhere.
We are now turning right into the Kahala Mall parking lot.
Sheri: Did you forgot to signal?
Jenn: I never signal. Unless there is someone behind me. Well there was someone behind
me back there and I still didn't signal. But like this kind of stuff, when there is
someone waiting for me, then I definitely signal.
We are looking for parking at the mall.
Jenn: Watch it!
Sheri: Why did you say that to the woman?
Jenn: Well she was in my way. Okay I admit that I'm a super hostile driver.
Sheri: Jenn, I noticed that when you lit your cigarette, you took you eyes off the
road. Wouldn't it be safer to use the car lighter?
Jenn: Yes it would be, but I'm using it as a plug for the car adapter for my CD player.
I know it's bad because I do take my eyes off the road for an instance and because I need
both hands to light my cigarette, I use my knee to steer the car. I know it's really bad,
so most times I light my cigarette at a red light, but right now I need a cigarette really
I have a very bad problem braking. I brake too close to the car in front of me because
my judging ability is bad. I often end up having to slam on my brakes. I notice that is
problem is exceptionally worse when I have a passenger in the car because I get distracted
by the conversation.
I HATE TRAFFIC! (Jenn screams this as we are still looking for parking, it's been
around ten minutes).
We finally find parking. Jenn reverses into the stall with no difficulties. She does a
very good job. This is the end of the dialogue from day 1. Next I followed through with a
