Back seat embarrassment

Back seat embarrassment

After having driven a couple of hundred miles my wife and I swapped driving duties. I was becoming drowsy. We let our son ride shotgun whilst I rode in the back seat and caught up with some music listening. A couple of albums and around one hundred miles later I heard my wife speak. I couldn’t quite catch what she said, (I had earphones on) so I said,”sorry darling, say again” (whilst continuing to listen to track playing in my ears). Again I heard her speak, but once more it was unintelligable to me. “Just give me another thirty seconds sweetheart and the track will have finished”, I said politely. I immediately noticed my wife struggling to drive the car in a straight line as she was laughing so hard; in fact crying with laughter. So too was my son. I took off my headphones; “what’s the matter?”. Through the very odd sobs of laughter my wife explained, “We’ve not said anything for miles. You’ve been flirting with the sat-nav lady.”
