Female Drivers

Published:

A Story I received that sort of reminded me of my daily drive. Difference is, I drive 55 miles one way. Hope you folks like.

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 the 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 Ipass 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.

I'm trying to figure out if this is a man saying "I hope I get lucky" or "I don't want to get shot." LOL

Another funny one, SirMetro.

Slightly off-topic...the other day I was taking a coffee break and sitting in my car facing the busy street adjacent to my complex. I started noticing a lot of people on their cell phones while driving so I started mentally tracking it. In 20 minutes time I noticed that about half of them were on their cell phones as they passed. Phenomenal! Anyone driving behind a cell phone user knows that they are as bad as drunk drivers.

I agree with you about the drivers! I've had drivers cut in front of me, and some were women with children in the car. They are dangerous drivers. Also I've had people on cell phones wiz by me. There are people out there who should not have a driver's license. I pray before I get into a car and while driving because it's frightening out there. Some of the drivers are very inconsiderate and irresponsible, and should have there licenses revoked.
It upsets me and makes me very angry , about the people I share the road with.

Try driving for a living! I lost so much work this year because I turned down offers where I'd have to drive hours to an appointment. I get so nervous when I'm on the interstate.

Forgive me for going off topic a little, but Jeb Bush passed a law in 2004 to allows illegal aliens to have a valid FL driver's license. That's so confusing to me. How can someone who is here illegally drive a car legally? So what does the word illegal mean? The news reported:

**Supporters argue it would enable people "stuck" in the long citizenship process to drive with valid licenses and insurance. ''Our roads and streets will be safer because of this,'' said Sen. Rudy Garcia, according to the Miami Herald, noting Florida's sprawling cities virtually make a car a necessity. By not granting the licenses, Garcia contends, the state "almost tells these folks to break the law, because that's the only way they're going to be doing anything.''

Huh? Isn't that the point? So by being illegal they weren't breaking the law, but if they drive a car without a license they are? Anyway, sorry. So besides the drunk drivers, the wreckless teenagers, and the 90 year olds falling asleep at the wheel, we now have hundreds of thousands of people driving here who can't read English.
