I offer to drive anywhere my girlfriend and I go because her driving worries me. I'm scared to think about how she'll be in my new car (which will be faster than my E46 was).

I'm actually glad she wants a Prius.

Stereotypes about Women Drivers

When I first met my ex wife 5 years ago I discovered she drove her 20k miles with no oil change !!!!! And one time I was out of town I asked her to take her car to get oil change and I specifically said just oil change don't let pep boys sell anything else , she comes back with $385 bill after they convinced her that she needs a new belt and transmission guild exchange plus the oil and I know I had put new belt a couple thousand miles ago and the tranny fluid wasn't even 10K miles on it !

A woman t boned my drivers door going 60. I would post pictures of the MRI showing the discs pressing on my spinal cord but i'm too off my head on the 80mg oxcontin 150mg lyrica & 40mg baclofen I had to take today.

Her poor diving skills could be because she is a woman or it could be the burqa obstructing her vision or both...

Usually to a mechanic, a woman taking a car in for repairs is like a rainbow ending at his desk, with the heavenly sounds of cha-ching echoing down..... I'm no sexist though...

I can see my wife doing something like that. There have been several times when I would drive her car and ask "how long has it been making that noise?". She would simply reply "What noise?"

When a group of men drive in the car all of them are drivers , all of them giving instructions to the driver , while women must have contact when talking and the last thing to worry about is this moving appliance they are in which is called car !
