Next stop, insanity

Look out!

When I was driving the other day, the driver behind me caught my attention. My thought process was something like:


It's a woman


Oh! It's an Asian woman


Oh my god! It's an Asian woman on cell phone


Holy Crap! It's an Asian woman on cell phone checking her make-up in the mirror.



I can't think of a more dangerous combination on the road. I would treat such combination with the same respect I would treat an 18-wheeler going 100mph with no breaks carrying 10,000 gallons of gas. I would get the hell out of the way!

Ok, ok! I don't believe women are worse drivers than men. But what are stereotypes for if you can't make fun of people?

Not all Asians are bad drivers either. Some of them don't drive.

  • u've done da rite thing by gettin outta her way. i agree women r bad drivers(no offence,.. i dont mean that they r so dumb n incapable, but they concentrate more on other issues while drivin).

  • HEY! 27 years of driving, no accidents, and only 1 speeding ticket here. [I'm going to get creamed on the way home, now that I wrote that.]

    I'm embarrased to admit that crazy asian drivers are the one stereotype that I can't shake. It's not like oh...losing track of whose turn it is at a 4-way stop, it's all straddling the center line and driving on the sidewalks, and crashing through the walls at the DMV (that really did just happened here this summer).

    You just have to drive about a mile in the bay area :)

    gnightgirl: "27 years of driving no accidents"
    Wow! That's an amazing record. Nothing can jinx that record. Me, 9 years no accidents so far.

  • Had a similar conversation with a girl (who is yet to learn how to drive), but she doesnt want to admit that asian-woman driving means double dhamaka :) I asked her to check back with me once she learns how to drive.

  • Here in Puerto Rico it is our daily bread:

    Puerto Rican woman on the phone, putting on eyeliner and feeding their kids breakfast on the freeway...

    Nothing like a life-threatening obstacle course to get ya' going in the morning!

    @mary poppins: "feeding their kids" LOL. That would be a sight to see

  • Women Asisan drivers scare me.

  • very funny - I hate to steroetype, but I probably would have put my hazzards on, pulled over, and waited five minutes before re-entering traffic to avoid the inevitable accident that was soon to ensue.

  • i ve had so many debates (arguments) with my female friends and i was always able to prove it in the end.. Women and driving are not made for each other..

  • I notice most of your blogs that take a dig at someone/something have either a disclaimer or an apology at the end :) Now that'd be too subtle to be an intentional subtle sarcasm on PC, wouldn't it? :-|

    me too :)

    pickle's papa:
    ROFL! That sounds like a more appropriate thing to do

    apy:
    Of couse you are not going to say it on a date or something, are you? ;)

    gauri:
    You do have a keen observation! Some times I do make fun of people even though I don't believe in a certain stereotype. So at the end, I make it clear to them that I don't mean the jabs I took. It's a lesson I learnt in real life. People do have a certain amount of sense of humor, I just need to be careful not to offend them too much.

    I really liked the way you look at things. Please do visit again!
