3.
The incessant question used by passengers to incite the driver of a vehicle to distraction. This inquiry results in more accidents and divorces than cell phone usage and internet use combined. The only correct defense from the insanity induced by the constant inquiry is, "It's at least another hour." even when the destination is only another 5 minutes.
Q: "Are we there yet"
A: "It's at LEAST another hour..."
