The stereotype for “women drivers” is going to be a tough one to shake for generations to come. The battle of the sexes is likely something that will never get resolved, and while the competition exist, there will be jokes like this to follow it. So this guy is just going about his day, minding his own business…when he sees something crazy that makes him stop and share his story with others. Do you agree?
I was riding to work yesterday when I observed a female driver cut right in front of a pickup truck, causing him to have to drive onto the shoulder to avoid hitting her.
This evidently angered the driver enough that he hung his arm out his window and “flipped” the woman off.
“Man, that guy is stupid,” I thought to myself. I ALWAYS smile nicely and wave in a sheepish manner whenever a female does anything to me in traffic, and here’s why…
I drive 48 miles each way every day to work. That’s 96 miles each day. Of these, 16 miles each way is bumper-to-bumper. Most of the bumper-to-bumper is on an 8 lane highway. There are 7 cars every 40 feet for 32 miles. That works out to be 982 cars every mile, or 31,424 cars.
Even though the rest of the 32 miles is not bumper to bumper, figure I pass at least another 4,000 cars. That brings the number to something like 36,000 cars that I pass everyday.
Statistically, half of these are driven by females.
That’s 18,000 women drivers! In any given group of females, 1 in 28 has PMS. That’s 642. According to Cosmopolitan, 70% describe their love life as dissatisfying or unrewarding. That’s 449.
According to the National Institute of Health, 22% of all females have seriously considered suicide or homicide in response to stressful situations. That’s 98.
And 34% describe men as their biggest problem. That’s 33.
According to the National Rifle Association, 5% of all females carry weapons, and this number is increasing every day.
That means that EVERY SINGLE DAY, I drive past at least one female that has a lousy love life, thinks men are her biggest problem, has seriously considered suicide or homicide, has PMS, and is armed.
Flip one off? …I think not.
You know, he’s got a point. But I wouldn’t just leave this to “women.” I can apply this to everything.
You never know what kind of day someone is having. You don’t know how they are feeling, what they might do if you happen to be “the last straw,” or if they really are carrying a firearm. Don’t ever go out of your way to start a fight…you might not be able to finish it! Especially on the road!!
