English term or phrase:riding shotgun
I see this phrase quite often. Are people using it loosely? I mean the last and only time I rode shotgun was when my car broke down and my friend and I had to squeeze in the tow truck, which had a narrow seat in the middle. Private cars only have two seats in the front. What, they're straddled over the gear shifter?
