Squishing people in a car

It’s common here to just squish in a car. It’s easy to find yourself in a taxi the size of a Corolla with a driver, two others in the front, four in the back, and four in the hatchback.

But today was a new experience. Not only were there two people sharing the front passenger seat, but there was another lady sharing the driver’s seat. She had to throw her legs over to the passenger side so that the driver could maneuver the stick shift thingy. And the driver was kind of hanging out of his window so that the woman, who was about 80-years-old mind you, could fit half of her frail body on his seat.

Yowsahs.
