Uproar in Saudi Arabia Over Suggestion That Women Be Allowed to Drive
i wife hates to drive and it is a good thing to she cant drive so she sticks to the small roads in town it is a good thing she has that 2002 car with 20k miles on it
Women belong in the house cleaning it, cooking our food and taking care of our babies.........................
I'm with you but you forgot the sorry family site
in a word...............NO!
Fixed it for ya.
...and you guys wondered why all the women left
WELL, i take alot of deliveries in DEARBORN MICH.the largest congregation of arabic people in the continetal US.and the women drivers are crazy,the last time a chicky ran through the intersection in a neighborhood(25 MPH) about 60. she had the stop sign but went through blowing the horn like I did something wrong. when i'm in that city it is it's nutty on the streets.thet all have no regard for pedestrions.i think the saudis are right.
Time for some more womens suffrage.
insurance companies charge men more than women for a reason.... men screw up and get in accidents more than women do. Its just my opinion based on my own experience... but it seems to me that men tend to get in accidents because they think they are "all that" and can drive however they want (read: like mario andretti) and will be able to control anything that comes at them (wrong). Women on the other hand tend to get in accidents due to either not really paying attention (make up, cell phone, thinking about boys/work whatever) to the act of driving or confusion in the person-machine relationship. My sister got in one accident one time and accidentally went offroad another, for example, because she "mistook" the gas pedal for the brake pedal. I've heard of other women doing that same... and have never ever heard of a guy doing this kind of thing, even guys with crappy judgement and beer in their system. lol! Anyway, like I said before... guys get in more accidents and thats really the bottom line.
Im going to have to disagree with that(that men get in more accidents) based on my observations. Its not that young men get in more accidents, its that we get in bigger wrecks. Every car accident ive been in was caused by a woman, but 3 of the 4 were at under 5mph and cause no damage to my trucks. Women back into cars in parking lots and rear end people at 5 mph, young men wrap cars arround telephone poles at 130mph. We crash less often, but wreck big when we do it. Women cause a bunch of fender beners, but without as much damage*
*Disclaimer: The above statements are by no means a fact, nor are they being presented as such. This is just what i have observed in my local area for over the past 5 years or so and also what i have read in the police blotter and in the local newspapers.
Hell no! It was better in the 17 and 1800s when they would be happy and thankfull to have bread on the table, and live in a log cabin. Its funny, we went ALL this time,,,all the way from the caveman days, to the 1700s,, and just in the last 100 years we set them free. Now there is divorce, and there just too out of control. It used to be if they were bad, ya just hit em with the switch a few times to straighten em out.
My wife would kill me if she saw this
My wife drives great.. so I don't see why not.
And, jokingly of course.. if they were not allowed to drive, who would go to the parts store when you're elbow deep in grease & oil?
Someone has to drive home from the dancehall... (my wife does not drink)
I'm out, on getting the grocieries.
Yeah.. women should be allowed to drive, all they want.
Ding, Ding, Ding! we have a winner !
I don't mid if my wife drives....as long as I am not in the passenger seat
Definitly got something with that driver/machine relationship...
Per mile driven, women get in more accidents.
Dollars of destruction, men get in more accidents.
The average man is a better than average driver. That's because there are a group of people that drive excrutiatingly poorly. That makes it possible for the average automobile driver to be a better than average driver.
Women keep the auto repair businesses going. Men keep the metal recyclers and the morgues going.
At the local body shop, the under $5,000 service bills are split up 11 females to 4 males.
If it's a wreck in the parking lot it's either a female, a geriatric, or a female geriatric at fault.
If the accident scene is 10 or 15 cars that someone tried playing pinball with or you have to clean up the remains of the body with a snow shovel it was probably a male driver.
That being said, if either gender is on a cellular phone all bets are off. They're the great equalizer.
Going by all three pages of the article, they're all a bunch of kooks over there...
Separate names with a comma.
