...and I don't mean the usual way.

I was sitting in the car at a supermarket shopping center and watching the soccer moms pull in and out of there was better than watching Fear Factor!

For example:

1. You'd be AMAZED at how many women back up without even looking behind them! Holy Crap! I saw two women almost back into each other and neither one even knew it! They still don't know how close they came!

2. I think I can explain all the transmission failures in Windsors and Tauruses. Apparently we men as a whole have failed our women and have never properly explained that you should stop the motion of a vehicle before you shift from drive to reverse and or putting the car in park. I'm shocked there aren't broken CV Joints, U-Joints, and parking pawls all over the parking lots of America.

3. The amount of women that cross in front of a lane of parked cars without out even looking to see if there was a car or person about to pull out will make the rest of your hair turn white.

4. When a woman is on a cell phone, the rest of the world goes away. I bet you could walk behind her and pick her purse while unhooking her bra and she won't notice unless she loses cell coverage.

5. Women think nothing about putting her purse or shopping bag or anything handy on a car's painted surfaces. Even someone elses' car.

What I've learned from my adventure: NO car I care about is EVER going near a shopping center AGAIN!

And you didn't even mention the damage they do with a shopping cart Steve.
To other peoples cars!
A woman pusing a shopping cart while on a cell phone is more dangerous than a drunk with a gun!

Ture story.
A couple of weeks ago on a very rainy day, Beth and I went to the supermarket.
I pulled into a parking space and parked next to a mini van.
A fat bitch was wheeling her cart in between the parked cars and was headed our way.
I figured I would just sit in the car and wait until she passed me by.
Fist she smacks into our cars mirror with her cart.
The she proceeds to park her cart in front of my door blocking my exit while she yaks on the cell phone and begins to unload her cart into the mini van.
I open the door and tell her somewhat politely to move her cart so I could get out of the car. She gets indignant with me and says I don't have to be so rude!!!!
(remember that Beth was with me)
I told her that I have not yet begun to get rude, but I would accomodate her shortly.
I then told her about hitting the mirror of our car and she of course flat denied it.
Both Beth and I told her we were sitting in the car and she hit is so hard that it rocked us!
She continued to talk on the phone now telling that party how rude I was and that she was being falsely accused.
If Beth had not been there I would have smacked that fat mini-van-mama bitch so hard she'd still be on the ground!!!!!
The scratch is still on the miror of the car.


PS.
Men.....I did use the "C" word loud enough for her to hear as I walked away headed for the store. That got her attention (it always does)in a hurry.

Me and my wife were eating dinner at the mall recently. We noticed a group of teenage mom's walking their babies in strollers. Everyone of them was on their damn cell phones. One of the kids was about to fall out, and she hadn't even noticed? Since when did that become cool?

I once witnessed two women back out of opposite spaces at a store and hit each other. They got out,looked it over,shook hands and got back into their cars. They both pulled back in,waited a few seconds and backed out,to hit again! I started to wonder if they would be there all day! LOL

My wife looks at cars like they are shopping carts. As long as it has gas,and air in the tires she thinks all is good.

There is this one mom at the dance school my kids go to that has a GMC Sierra extended cab 4X4 that she absolutely cannot drive,or even park. I was parallel parked in front of her one day with about 5-6 feet between us. She jockeyed back and forth a few times and couldn't get out! She noticed I was watching in the mirror and started to rant off,yelling that I was too close and had to move. So I started my truck and showed her what a FORD truck with an LSD can do! She deserves to be in a Neon.Not to mention someone should stop beating her with the ugly stick,but that is another story. This woman is a self acclaimed diva,and it was one of the highlights of the day to see her melt.

One of the best places to watch them is at the service counter of a garage. They are trying to gather all the info needed for a decision,while not trying to show they don't understand. What is not right is when the guy behind the counter sells them stuff they really don't need. I sometimes try to offer an opinion,but most of the time I look like an A-hole butting into someone else's business.

And then there are those that do care about our cars and know exactly what were talking about when we go to the parts counter. Love arguing with the parts counter guy that thinks that just because he has more testosterone than me that he knows more about my car than me. Had to even get my car manual out to prove that I knew exactly what modulator I needed when mine went out. Oh yah, this was of course after he asked me if I was sure I had an LTD, and not a pinto.

Sorry to say that bad driving and cell phones is not a gender issue. I drive long distances to and from work every day, and it seems to be an equal epidemic. Some women are oblivious to whats around them, and some men are reckless and over confident of their abilities. Next time your driving, take notice. Who drifts and changes lanes slowley without looking, and who is the lane hopper that can fit that monster truck in the smallest of spaces between to cars. Sitting in traffic daily gives you ample time to view others driving habits.

in all fairness to the ladies, men are just as bad when it comes to driving. i cant tell you the number of times i have nearly been clipped by guys who think that they are better drivers than mario andretti. stupidity unfortunatly tends to be universal with both sexes.

My "baby machine" next door neighboor has a Dodge mini van. Her sister who visits almost daily has a newer Explorer and her mother who does visit daily has a Honda Accord.
None of them can parallel park.
If they don't have at least two car lengths so they can pull into the spot they will drive around the block until they find a spot with enough room or go and get the husband to park for them.

At least it is not like down the street from us where they just pull in at a 45 degree angle and pretend they have parking stalls like the stores. I have always liked when it looks like a driver is having seizers and it turns out they are giving a concert to the radio or on a hands free phone.

Here's a new one...

My wife's cousin owns a '04 Sable wagon she bought new. A few weeks ago she was giving it a wash and had a hard time getting the bug splatter off. Then a lightbulb went off in her head and she went and got an SOS pad and went to town! It worked so well, she did the rest of the car. She said she didn't realize what she had done until the car dried and it wasn't shiny anymore...

Well I agree that neither sex can drive verry well!! I drove an 18 Wheeler for 13 months and you would be suprised to see all the stupid things ppl do in cars. its just amazing the things they do. I did one time run flat over the front of a 03 cavalier that was driven by a 16 yearold femal who was going 70 in a 25!!!! i was on hwy95 exit 1 in GA fixing to get fuel when that happoned. she tried to blame the accident on me!!!!!the cop actually looked at her and laughed and told her to shutup, that it was her fault. but like i said its amazing what ppl do in cars

In the 70's we had a friend who worked at a Ford dealership so we had cases of oil. My now sister-in-law stopped by with her new boyfriend who was driving a Chevy. The oil light was on and he asked if we had any oil. We told him that if he put the Motorcraft oil in the Chevy it would blow up the motor. We also said it would blow up if they drove it. They actually walked almost a mile to the store looking for Chevy oil. The fun a group of guy with a keg of beer will do for fun.

I've actually told one of our salepeople to "hang up your cell phone and walk out of my way" in the parking lot. Evidently they can't walk, talk and think all at the same time.

The other day in a parking lot I saw a triple play. First the lady jammed her car in reverse while it was still rolling forward, she almost backed into someone that was backing out of a parking slot, then she finished backing out without looking behind her. At least it was only a subaru!
