“You never realize how bumpy a road is until you try to write something”

A bumpy road and trying to write are a bad combination. “I’d forgotten how bumpy and difficult it is to write when on the train. I have crazy scrawls all over the page now. :-(” was posted on Twitter by Rob Stroud on May 13, 2010. “You never realize how bumpy the train is until you need to write (or take a leak). Right?” was posted on Twitter by Kevin Richardson on October 1, 2011.

“You never realise how bumpy a car ride is until you try to write something” was posted on Twitter by makeda on September 12, 2014. “You never realize how bumpy a road is until you’re trying to write something” was posted on Twitter by Wit on October 24, 2016. “You never realize how bumpy a car ride is until you try to write on a piece of paper” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughtson November 19, 2019. 

“You never realize how bumpy a road is until you try to take a drink of something” and “You never realize how bumpy the road is until you drive on it with a full bladder” are other “bumpy road” sayings.
