So tomorrow they get a drive of a GT? What model? What transmission? GoAuto don't tend to have any times do they - it's just a summary of the car as a whole. Which is a good thing because a few guys on here won't be going "Er 5.0 for 0-100 is CRAP. I EXPECTED ONE SECOND FLAT FROM A GT AND NOTHING LESS" Or something equally as idiodic. I can't wait! What I also saw more was this load of horse sh*t

On the other hand, my own personal observations have revealed a number of things women are MORE likely to do than men whilst driving:


Drive in the right hand lane at 10km/h below the speed limit while turning around to slap the children in the backseat;

Let said children out of the car at a school on the right (drivers) side of the car, so they can run across the road where the car is double parked, instead of escorting them to a crossing;

U-turn across double lines outside above mentioned school, nearly hitting the children getting out of the right (drivers) side of the car behind her and doing the same thing she let her children do;

After barely avoiding above children, she’ll drive off at a snails pace so as not to hit the potholes while she applies the last of her make-up using the vanity mirror in the sun-visor;

Then reach across the car to where her bag has fallen into the front passenger foot-well so she can put said make-up back in the side-zipper-pocket of her bag where it belongs;

Finally sitting up straight and attentive so she can drink her foam cup of steaming hot cappuccino without any unsafe male drivers bothering her or making her have an accident, as she is such a good driver she’d never have one that was not caused by some inconsiderate male who never pays attention to what he’s doing behind the wheel of a car.

(and that’s just an amalgam of the women in MY family – I hate to think of the women in all yours! :s6:)



Cheers
Jason

Back in '94 when I was getting a lift to school from my mum, some mole hit us up the arse in our EA Ghia while we were stationary at the lights. She pushed us across the road but luckily there were no oncoming cars. And guess what she was doing?? Slipping on her high heels, she came out with one normal shoe and one heel Stupid bitch could have killed us with her stupidity, but luckily all I had was some whiplash and shock, pretty scary thing to happen. Haha, having said that, I don't think you can stereotype, young and middle aged women seem to piss me off, but then young P plate males also do!
