Default driving like a "family man"

Some punk keyed my new Sierra on Halloween and it went into the shop today for repair. The worst thing is the rental co. gave me a mini van to drive until the repair is done.....

Does this mean I might start driving like a family man? I'm very concerned that diving one of these things is going to make me;

1. go slow where I should be going fast and fast where I should be slow.

2. veer to the right side of the road when I'm turning left and to the left when I'm turning right.

3. stop the vehicle two car lengths over the stop line when there is crossing traffic and two lengths behind the stop line when there isn't any traffic.

4. enter freeways with traffic going 65-70mph via on ramps at no more than 35mph.

5. forget where my turn signal is unless I'm going straight.

6. wait 30 seconds to go on green but beep at anyone that makes me wait more than 0.2 second.

7. always be one lane over from the one I need to be in.

8. pull out into fast moving traffic then slow down but wait to pull out for a slow lumbering semi one mile down the road.

okay.....I have even deeper concerns....what if I start developing an affinity for shopping malls, "Obama 08" and "student of the month" bumper stickers, the democratic party, local news and ties......I'm scared shitless

Driving a mini-van has been known to make a mans "ball hair" spontaneously fall out .....

I wouldn't sweat it unless you automatically stop at all soccer field parks and grade schools. If this happens you may need to go in for De-programming.

i think it all depends on the minivan they gave you....
i mean i had a Mazda MPV and while it was technically a minivan, it had the euro lights and certainly didn't drive like a minivan.. to that end i also didn't drive it like a minivan either, even with the cross country dad sticker on the back, the got cello sticker, the victory motorcycles sticker, and the NRA sticker on the back.. man boobs and all... that minivan was a minivan that thought it was a sportier car and i would still be driving/commuting in it except for the brain dead moron in the ford 350 picking her nose and screwing with the gps relocating the passenger side rear of the van much closer to the driver's side.. apparently MPV's aren't supposed to be potato chipped.. much better that my current commuter....

you got your jesus on the dashboard, the devil's under my hood. you're takin' down to legal, i'm pulling it up to no good.
god is your co-pilot, i let satan ride shotgun, you pay a toll to get to heaven, but on the road to hell there's none..... \m/ \m/
