You could also try the approach I used with von_zoom when I met him at first at VIR...I said "sit there, shut the f*ck up and I will tell you when you can get out!". It worked wonders for our in-car bonding!
Okay, I might have made that up. However, after our first session, he did ask me to drop him by the restroom as soon as we got off the track. [That's a true story]. Feedback is not always verbal...so I took that as a compliment!
[I wasn't sure what to make of that, but I did wonder if I would see him again!]
