If you guys would eat something when you drove, you would not have that face of anguish. So you are forced to drive slower--that is a good time to have a milk shake.

Crumbs were everywhere in my car, discarded candy bar wrappers, half-eaten sandwiches, spilled drinks, pizza pieces, potato chips, taco chips, crackers, lost pieces of candy--yes, in a storm I could survive by just grazing on the car mat.

It got to point that I really relished the half-eaten hot dog that were preserved and dried in the hot car; dried parts of fried chicken were especially good. I could even drive with donuts in both hands, and a cup of coffee between my knees.

Latter, I did not need to prepare dinner when I got home--all I did was pick crumbs off my shirt and the ledge over my extended tummy.

A good thing is that a herd of Colorado mice had taken residence under my car seat, and I gathered the fattens ones for a weekend barbecue.

Now I no longer drive much and I have lost weight but I miss the buffet on the highway and my herd of mice are gone.

Reminds me of the gauge I use to indicate when it is time to clean out my car: When the McDonald's wrappers from the back seat start flowing over into the front seat.

That really cracked me up!

Personally I don't eat in my car, or allow anyone to eat in my car. I don't eat fast food, so drive throughs don't entice me, and my car stays much cleaner. But when I lived in California, I had several co-workers who moved far inland in order to afford a house, and then became what I call "extreme commuters", where they drove over 1.5 hours to work each way. Once they began this leve of commuting, they all put on a lot of weight. Probably a combination of having to eat in the car, lack of physical activity, and then being too tired for physical activity once they got home.
