Okay, all I did was attempt to slow down a bike with my body position...you guys are all nuts!

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I think my worst moment was when I yelled "Ho" at a co worker. I was like "Oops sorrry" and had to explain.

I cluck to people at work... they all know I'm crazy. I also 2-point in my car going up a hill or over a bump in the road. I'm kind of an idiot at times..

well I went full out....I named my car AND my truck and I talk to them like a horse...they get lots of praise when they go fast and do what theyre told and they cat a cussin' if they misbehave.

I also cluck and kiss to people.

and the other day we were backing trucks in and so just imagine.....8 army guys and me...one guys backing a truck and he almost hits a wall so I scream "ho!!!!" yeah....got a lot of weird looks for that lol

I tell people "ho-ooooooooo" (drop in octave) if they're going too fast, and tend to "push them over" with my body language to get out of my bubble. I pay my truck's dash all the time, and tell the dogs to "gerr'up" or "git up."
I've learned, though, that you can't herd cats.

When I'm four wheeling and snowmobiling, I tend to squeeze with my legs to try to make it go faster....I never get the reaction I'm hoping for :p

I cluck at everything possible, and find myself poking people and pushing them to get them to move over xD I also taught my dog to jump, walk, trot, and canter on command, and have tried to lunge, halter, and crosstie him many times (:

Bike half halt, never thought of it like that. As a young teen I was in a slow bicycle race on rough ground. I'd barely go then brake with momentary hesitations. Not easy on bumpy grassy ground but hey, it worked and I won. Not sure it was something to be proud of, being the slowest rather than the fastest.
