I was driving down the A23 in my motorhome on the weekend and decided to pull into a petrol station.
My girlfriend asked me why I was stopping.

Me : "To get some water".

Her : "I've got cranberry juice in the fridge."

Me : "Yes - but that will ruin the engine !"

:roll:

You are treading on dangerous ground with your title!

There are many wise ones (females) on this board and I was pondering exercising my right as a moderator (LOL) and editing your title so not to offend them:lol:

Mmmm, I agree Gillian, don't think we want to go down the road of slagging off the other sex do we?

Let's look at the original situation here -

As the driver of the vehicle, Drifter was concerned for the vehicle's welfare, his girlfriend on the other hand was showing her concern for his welfare.

Had the situation been reversed I'm sure that the same confuson would have arisen - don't think it's to do with the sex of each participant but their position as driver & co-pilot.

Good point Caz !

Having checked my motorhome engine history I find the fuel filter needs cleaning, the brake shoes checked and the plug heaters need changing as my winter service is this weekend. So, to prove my comments are not sexist, this weekend I'm going to do the cooking and my girlfriend gets the toolbox.

I think Mrs Drifter will be OK with this as long as I remember to interpret those phrases which mean something completely different when used by a woman :


Fine.

This is the word she uses at the end of any argument she feels she's right but can't stand to hear me argue any longer. It means that I should shut up. (I must NEVER use "Fine" to describe how she looks. This will cause one of those arguments.)

Five minutes.

This is half an hour. It's that period of time she takes to get ready to drive, even though you've already done the departure checklist. It is equivalent to the five minutes that it takes to pack up the fishing gear before I take have to take out the rubbish bin, so she feels that it's an even trade.

Nothing.

"Nothing" usually means something ! And I should be on my toes. "Nothing" is usually used to describe the feeling she has of wanting to turn me inside out, upside down, and backwards. It translates as you've definitely done something wrong but won't tell me so I must feel guilty. "Nothing" usually signifies an argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with the word "Fine."

Damn! You've cottoned on.
Now you resist when she says " Would you mind attending to ****** , it's only a five minute job". :D
