Angry Women Drivers!

Women Drivers!

This morning on the Interstate, I looked over to my left and there was a woman driving a brand new Cadillac doing 65 mph with her face up next to her rear view mirror, putting on her eyeliner. I looked away for a couple seconds and when I looked back she was halfway over in my lane, still working on that makeup. As a man, I don't scare easily, but she scared me so much I dropped my electric shaver, which knocked the donut out of my other hand. In all the confusion of trying to straighten out the car using my knees against the steering wheel, it knocked my cell phone away from my ear which fell into the coffee between my legs, splashed and burned my legs and groin, ruined the phone, soaked my trousers, and disconnected an important call.

I tell you, women drivers!!!!


LOL

Ya I hear ya... When I'm trying to burn through a yellow light, I have some woman switching into my lane ahead of me just in time for the red...

I could have made it man.. I could have made it...

I guess I'll try the side walk next time!



For everyone with a trailer... If you do 2 lawns on the same street, but one his far enough that you have to drive to it... TRY DRIVING ALL THE WAY THERE IN REVERSE!!!

It saves you time, forget about turning around, it's the 21st century!

LMFAOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can just see your truck pulling up to a customer, your trailers dragging a bicycle & a few trash cans, with a light post in your trailer.

JUST IN TIME!

that would be an awesome advertisement vid!!!

ok, in case folks have not figured this out, that was a joke. Someone sent it to me in an email so I just had to post it! I could not stop laughing when I read it...
