Women passengers

When driving with the girlfriend in the car I normally have to drive fairly sedately, as if I drive fast I get moaned at.

On the way home from work tonight, I twice had to take evasive action due to other motorist pulling out in front of me, and both times I was moaned at "For scaring her". Now she is annoyed with me.

This has really annoyed me too, as I have no choice but to take her with me as she works next to where I work.

Shall I take a sick day tomorrow so that she has to take a bus?

She would see my car from her office window.

The place she works is literally next door to my work.

Re: Women passengers

cunning these women. If shes good looking with big hooters and long legs, then wear ear plugs.

Otherwise tell her to buy a bus pass.

Re: Women passengers

lol you moan about "women" passengers my other half does the passenger foot stomp, forever tells me to brake for the corner altho I'm already on the brake? Before now he's even gone into "crash mode" (knees upto chest) because he thought I was gonna hit a curb Since then I always ask him if he wants to drive if we go somewhere!

Re: Women passengers

I agree with what you are saying Moo - women make worse drivers than passengers



That was what you were saying wasn't it

Re: Women passengers

It does sound like the two of you are not destined to be in the same car.......

.......before she buys a bus pass.......


.......I really hate to ask this........


....... but are you sure she isn't right?

It's a fair while since I last had to take evasive action. Twice in one journey? Can't remember the last time that happened to me.

And if AV is still here it ISN'T because I'm the one you're all evading!

If you drove around my town you would see that taking evasive action is a common thing.

Firstly a van jumped some lights in front of me at a junction, and the second time a car pulled out from a side turn in front of me.

Thats despite me having the headlights on.

Re: Women passengers

Mrs Corbo and I share the car to work. I regularly get moaned at.Thankfully if I make her late enough she has to bring her breakfast in the car so I can have some fun while her mouth is full of toast.
