I don't see a problem here. Looks like he used the new "stealth" floor mats. Who needs access to their gas pedal anyways. Besides, he probably wanted the Toyota driving experience

Could have been worse. She (please don't tell me it'* a he) could have covered the brake pedal.

Reminds me of this time a customer came in with his car complaining of a high pitch squeal. Three mechanics looked at it and were unable to duplicate the concern. Finally the customer had the service manager take a ride with him and sure enough the noise wasn't there. They came back to the shop and the customers wife came up to him and the service manager noticed his wife was wearing hearing aids and asked her if she could hear the noise. They lady said what? turned up her hearing aid and it started squealing and the customer said hey thats the noise I'm hearing!
