If you see many more women drivers, it is because they are lost. Women complain about asking directions, but when men give me directions, they are more often correct.

I know plenty of women that were apparently were not taught to stay within the lines, or at least in their lane.

I know more scary female drivers than males, but nobody has ever tried taking me 155 MPH. One of these females was stopped for suspicion of DUI. No, just a bad driver. Her phone may be worth more than her car and she gives too much attention to the wrong one while driving.

Women are not obsessed with things? I have helped women move. When it requires multiple trips just to carry all of their shoes and then you have purses and everything else, it seems obsessive. I helped my sister and brother-in-law move. They had a twenty-foot moving truck and he had four boxes.

I had classmates walk late into class, the professor said that we were working in groups, and suggested they joined a group, instead of catching up on the assignment, I heard "Oh my gosh! Your outfit is so cute!"
"Oh my gosh! I know!"
I swear that I heard "Oh my gosh" a few more times before they calmed down.

What is Pinterest, if not thing obsession?

Last time we moved, when it got close to the end and there are empty boxes in the back of the truck. "Why are we hauling empty boxes". "Those are decorative boxes".

"Then why in $%^&*() are the damn things EMPTY!"

Same move last things being picked up. Wife says, "Grab that plant on the front porch".

I grab the plant and toss it into the trunk of my Riviera. Grab a few more thing and when I go to toss them in the truck, I realize that there is an ant's nest in the plant. By now there are ants swarming all over the cars trunk. I throw the damn plant in the ditch next to our house, grab some bug spray and blast heck out of the trunk area. Driving to the new home (18 miles) I SEE FRIGGIN ANTS CRAWLING EVERYWHERE!!!!!!

Bombed the car when I got home.

To top that off ain't easy but here goes. I fire up the 37 Ford coupe to drive it to the new home and the NOS throw out bearing with 100 since replacement miles decides to freeze up and make the worst noise you have ever heard. This is after replacing the complete clutch assembly and having the transmission rebuilt. I towed the car to my old shop and sold it. It never reached the new house where we now live.

I hate doing anything twice with a serious passion. Fall apart on me you $%^&* and your $%^&* is gone.

regards

Ex G.F., riding on the back of my V-Max, reaches around and twists the throttle WOT. Unexpected; exciting. Death wish. That thing will propel you to over 100mph in the blink of an eye.

For some reason, I thought you were going to find a way to blame the ants for the bad throw out bearing.

Re: Moving. It's usually stressful.
Reminds me of a story I heard about two bikers; one on a Harley and the other on a rice rocket.

Between the two of them, they thought it would be a good idea to trade bikes.

After the first red light turned green, the Harley rider on the rice rocket popped a wheelie off the line, sped through the intersection out of control, and then totaled the bike into a telephone pole.

I can see that happening, you twist the throttle same as always, but more response between your legs than used to. I had my 2001 FZ1 catch me off guard, twist the throttle to have a little fun, but if your not ready your body goes backwards twisting the throttle even farther. Bail or try to ride it out and hope it comes down and don't hit anything? I went from a KLR650 to FZ1 throttle response is a little different.
