Default Golf Cart Observation

Inquiring minds want to know:
Do you drive your cart with your left knee sticking out? If so, why?

I used to put both out at the same time, but I stopped doing it because I found it impossible to send text messages and drive.
With just my left leg out, texting, smoking my cigar, and chatting to my wife is a lot easier!

Guilty. It is not a conscious decision....just happens. I sometimes catch myself and bring the knee in but it is not as comfortable. Heck, it's titanium and can take a licking and keep on ticking....no wait a minute, it's the other one that ticks...and clicks...and makes grinding sounds.

No. Because I like my knee and would like to keep it.

I guess most want to keep their family jewels cool and refreshed. Better yet is those who drag their left foot on the MMP/street. Seen that a number of times.

In the required Villages style, i drive with my left foot on the dash, steer with one hand and hold my drink with the other.

Don't forget to let your golf towel cover up your turn signal.

It is not a choice! It is more comfortable but hopefully doesn't offend anyone or put them at risk.

Has anyone ever been injured hanging out the knee. It's instinctive to pull in the knee if needed, trust me!

OK..... I'm going to resurrect one of my all time favorite threads. I hope Red doesn't mind.

Has the Whacker ever been Whacked? Is She/He still on the loose? I know it says gentleman but could it be a Woman Whacker?

How would this knee behavior negatively affect anyone else's life/day? Just wondering?

Keeping a knee out, makes it easier for those riding their carts while walking their dogs, to lean down to at least try to partially pick up dog poop...from other folks lawns.
