Most unexpected question: Describe to me the process and benefits of wearing a seatbelt.
Process: put buckle into socket until it locks. Benefit: your face doesn't become shredded to hell when it goes flying through the windshield in an accident.
Process (front seat manual seat belt only for simplicity): Prerequisites: - Be inside car. - Be seated. - Be unbuckled.
