A little long time ago I was giving couple of sisters a ride from our university to another in my car followed by another two cars behind me to attend a course. We got a little lost up and wandering precincts in hope of reaching our destination. After everyone was little agitated a sister comes up to me furiously but respectfully asks me, ”Why don’t you ask someone on the street who knows. Look, there is a man standing there, maybe he knows”. I looked at her with deep silence, took a deep breath and did my own thing. Ala kulli haal, we reached because of my most awesome smartest smartphone’s GPS. Before going to the course, this same sister looks at me and says, ”Why do you men don’t listen to us? We could have saved 20 minutes” and gave me that ‘men-are-losers’ look and walked away. From then, I always wondered to why we men cannot ask someone direction even if we are lost. I have been quite deriving theories and finding answers to reply her and this is the best I have got. Here, take a read:
”Being a man, I am unwilling to pull over and ask someone for directions, because this would imply they are somehow cleverer than me. And obviously they’re not, because I’m toasty warm in a car and they’re mooching around on foot – Jermey Clarkson
So sisters, next time you tell this to your husband/father/brother or any random man who’s giving you a ride, note that this is what is going in his mind. You either keep quite and tell him thank you for the ride and maybe give him a chocolate or drive yourself.
And if you think we don’t understand you, well, guess what. To us you women are like jenga crosswords puzzle rubix cubes strapped on to terrorists who are screaming at us in completely another language we don’t understand.
Have a nice day!
