I'm about to snitch on DH again.
I am 5'2" (157 centimeters) and DH is 5'11" (180 centimeters) As you can imagine, when we change drivers in the car, it involves significant changes of the seat position. Our current car requires the brake pedal to be depressed before you can start the engine.
DH had driven the car last, but I was going to drive this time. We get in the car and I start to adjust the seat.
DH: Why don't you turn the engine on and let it warm up while you fiddle with the seat?
Me: Because I can't reach the brake pedal! Why do you think I need to adjust the seat?
DH: Um, to make yourself more comfortable?
No, dear, it's because when the seat is all the way back in your position, my feet can't reach the pedals!
(Technically, I could reach them with the seat in his position -- but it involves slumping so far down in the seat that I can't see over the steering wheel.)
