Vive la différence!
A pervasive cliché in the gender war game has been that men have more spatial awareness; single focus; interest in sports; need for statistics, and mechanical aptitude; while women are swayed by shoes, chocolate, babies, possibly yogurt; but shopping in general. As well as home; interior design; other peoples homes; possession of homes; other people possessions; and so on.
Be that as it may, but not necessarily so; or be that it may generally be; but not specifically so; I do prefer women’s politeness on the road when driving, even if they happen to be returning from shopping*.
It’s their innate disposition towards life; viewing it as a precious gift and not something to be extinguished by driving a ton of metal recklessly.
*The shopping is most likely a gift for someone.
Yet a law unto themselves at times
