My husband is a typical stereotype of a male who would rather die than look at a road map.
His typical response is, all roads lead to Rome.
This type of thinking is ok if you live on an Island like Montreal, Singapore or even England for that matter.
Eventually, if you don’t find where you need to go, you either run out of gas or find home again, which makes a passenger like me,
grow exceedingly red in the face, ready to blow up knowing you are never going to get where you are going. Loll
The other example is Hyacinth, in Keeping Up Appearances. She either gives too many instructions or misreads the map. She can be very annoying at times and one praises her angelic husband for putting up with her.
One wonders who gets the raw end of the deal in the car at times,
the driver or the passenger. lol
You can't imagine how grateful I am for the people who invented the GPS system today.
Men, on top of being stubborn, are also gadget addicts. They like remote controls and the GPS is another toy to tinker with.
After adjusting it with all the noise it can make for speeding and such , they enjoy sitting and fighting with the voice which
annoyingly never gets annoyed, when ever they make a mistake and go the wrong way or miss an exit it says is 400 meters away instead of 200.
Funny enough, after all the complaining about how empty headed women are, men don’t choose a male voice to direct them but a sexy woman's voice.
Guess they feel better to argue with a robot woman than a robot man. lol I guess it's
a man thing since men always know where they are going. Arguing with another man is not
an ego booster and defeats the purpose of the argument.
With the GPS you can relax cause you know eventually men will find the way and all roads do not lead to Rome.(home)
So..... while they fight with the GPS system, you can sit, read,take in the sights, ignore them or take a nap
