on the lighter side of things

I was riding to work yesterday when I observed a female driver, who cut right in front of a pickup truck, causing the driver to drive onto the shoulder to avoid hitting her. This evidently angered the driver enough that he hung his arm out is window and gave the woman the finger. "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 982 cars every mile, or 31,424 cars.

Even though the rest of the 32 miles is not bumper-to-bumper,

I figure I pass at least another 4000 cars.

That brings the number to something like 36,000 cars that I pass every day.

Statistically, females drive half of these.

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.

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.

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.

Give her the finger? I don't think so.

! If I were a crayon, I'd most likely be jammed up some kids nose.

Too funny I think we have to admit that there are lousy drivers of both sex!! I say that you just have to take this little problem in stride. After all life is to short to use up some angry on a stupid driver whatever sex they are

I put on a minimum of 110 miles per day, usually more in the lines of 125-150. Why I'm looking for a different job - though I can handle driving, I'm not getting paid for it. Granted, I do live in a rural area away from the city - so some can say it's my fault that I have to drive so much. However I doubt I would move to the city unless I had an incredible reason to!

OMG, no kidding! I'm the female half of this couple, and now that I've read these statistics, I'll think twice about getting pissed off at female drivers as well! YIKES that's a bit of a scarry thought! I may even consider being a better driver so that I don't piss off the woman that is armed, pissed off with pms wanting to either kill herself or someone else! I dunno what I'd do if I crossed paths with a woman like that!


Blessed Be
