That Isn't dissociation, it's a very normal part of how tedious repetitive actions get wiped from memory.

Dissociation can manifest that way too though, the mind kinda says "we don't need this, this is boring and or useless" and erases it.

A lot of people with dissociative disorders also have dissociative amnesia which is a real thing.

Particularly amnesia around trauma or identity in the case of DID

I think they’re thinking that the car thing can be classified as dissociation, and it can be a sign of depression and other disorders that cause dissociation, but that specific thing in the car also happens to otherwise mentally well people who are just tired and taking a regular route home. Of course, they presented it poorly
