Today, I bow my head in shame. This will probably lead me to slaughter, but it has to be said. Men are better drivers than women. CRINGE! Yes, I am a woman, betraying our gender!
At the supermarket this morning a woman got herself in such a tangle when she parked, she had to get a shop attendant to help her get her car out, a male shop attendant… Maybe, like a bad hair day you get a bad driving day? Think about it, how many fender benders, red robot skipping and bad parking “incidents” are caused by women. Of course there are women who drive extremely well, but let’s face it, men are the stronger sex when it comes to parallel parking!
Yes you get insurance for “woman only”, but it might be because we are calmer, more behaved drivers, and therefore less likely to pull some “hold my beer while I do this” stunt (those ads for 1st for woman are testament to that).
In our defense, we have a lot on our minds, and we are preoccupied most of the time. So we have to multitask! Driving while maybe finishing your make-up, or that important phone call or trying to remember whether you switched the stove of. Maybe good driving skills are a natural talent, imbedded in a man’s DNA?
It still rocks being a woman, and I’d rather yawn and rub my eyes in the morning, than burp and scratch my balls, so if it’s the one thing we might be a little below average at, that’s fine by me!
