"I have never understood that. From my own experience I recall more females totaling their cars than males. Usually if you ask a guy how they got a particular dent, scratch or other blemish on their car they know when, where and how it happened.…"
"We joke about women drivers but its usually men that are worse hence we pay more for car insurance. In Europe this was recently challenged since it discriminates against men, The courts agreed and now women have to pay as much as men. Yay equality:)"
"I drive near 100% of the time when my wife and I are in the car together. Only real exception is when we're on a really long car trip and I've just had it. I handed over the driver's seat on the second day of a Disneyworld…"
"I guess I do the driving about 70% of the time. On a date I almost always drive and I open the door for my wife. My wife is not a good driver but insists she is only a bad driver when I ride with her. I claim she only notices it when I ride…"
"That is between you and your lady.
My wife pays the bill when we dine out. It comes out of the same account so it does not matter between us who deals with it. That being said I find it amusing how often I am give the check rather then…"
"expectation? I suppose that depends on the woman and your relationship. My wife likes to drive, as do I. I mind driving over long distances less than she, but she's happy to as well...

"Censoring, in some cases, is a strong word. But it is a strong word when it applies to political correctness as well. At the least, those fixated on being PC will shut you out or label you for using the word that isn't "in," or…"
""if there needs to be a change, the leaders of the change should be members of the group. For self-appointed guardians to decide for other ethnicities what they should be offended by seems pretty demeaning."Of course. By the same token,…"
"Although my main concern with PC is the other uses of it as discussed above, there's an ugly underside to the terminology for groups, that we need to be aware of. Maybe we already are. Let's see.
