Quinte, On. real estate agent: The Face of Concentration

The Face of Concentration

No pedestrians were harmed in the filming of this video

I took my daughter out for a driving lesson last night. It was our third time. The area around Carrying Place is perfect for this because the roads are wide and there's not too much traffic. It's a relatively stress-free place to learn how to drive. On our last excursion some hillbilly in a red pick-up truck gave us the finger because we were driving a bit too slow for his liking. Screw him anyway.

I really have no idea why I'm posting this video other than to get the world to see what a beautiful and talented daughter I have. She may get her good looks from her mom, but she's definitely going to get her driving skills from me.

Robert Rauf (REMN The Real Estate Mortgage Network) The few extra gray hairs are definitely worth it Robert. I'm having a lot of fun doing this. Good luck with your son tonight.

Bill Gillhespy Fort Myers Beach Realtor (Century 21 Tripower Realty) Thanks Bill, I think she will too.

Malcolm - The lengths some of us parents go to for our children ..... just remember a safe driving course should help you get a lower insurance rate

Yes you do have a beautiful and talented daughter.  Kudos to her for tolerating the video camera!  She looked so calm and collected!  ...and you!  ...it's not easy to sound so relaxed, but you did it.

Malcolm, now really, were you that calm? LOL! I wasn't when I went out with my sons ;).

She's beautiful, talented and tolerant LOL.

Malcolm, I had my oldest daughter drive the car around my yard and learn to shift while I sat on the front porch.  I remember she kept making the car die and had to keep starting it.  This sure brings back memories.

Malcolm, Good work and she's beautiful and talented. I taught 5 kids to drive. One day I give you my parallel parking tip. It wasn't until the fifth that I got it figured out. PS. Here's the tip "teach them to drive in reverse, significant distances in a poarking lot first" Once they can do that, when you try parallel parking it will feel natural and they'll get it on the second or third try.

I think father's are better driving instructors than us moms!  I was a nervous wreck teaching my girls, but recall my dad's calm and quiet presence in the car ... until I almost hit that telephone pole   :)

Barrie Clulow (My Time Is My Own) For sure Barrie, she will be doing the course.

Kristen Wheatley (Keller Williams Realty Mid Maine) Thanks Kristen, she's an absolute sweetheart.

Janice Ankrett ASP (Janice Ankrett Home Staging) Haha,I was pretty calm Janice, she's a pretty good driver.

Kay Van Kampen-Springfield, Ozark, Nixa Greene County Missouri Real Estate Agent (RE/MAX Broker, RE/MAX Solutions) Kay, I can sympathise with your daughter, I'm horrible with stick shift myself.

Brian Madigan LL.B. (Royal LePage Innovators Realty, Broker) That's a great idea Brian. It would get her used to reverse (which is a pretty difficult thing to learn)

sj  She sure is one special girl :-)

Envelope Real Estate Brokerage Inc Neither will I Ty.

Sandi Gerrard, CRSS (Feel at Home * redesign * staging * training) I'm sure that anybody would lose a bit of compsure while barrelling towards a telephone pole Sandi.
