Renu, that is why 'Woman ' is such a complex thing that man has never been able to find a way to her heart. She is like a chakraviyuh. If some one gets in, it is impossible to come out.

Just joking to match with your hilarious post :-))

Renu: This is exaggerated BUT is so true. I would back my car, park and go to the walk-in ATM if an 'unsure lady' (how did I know - well you can make that out from behind) happened to be in the car ahead of me, while edging towards a busy drive through ATM. I got my business done much faster that way.

I have seen ladies misaligned with the machine; reversing and trying to align, with another car right behind; I have seen them rolling down the window after finally stopping, putting on parking brakes with six cars behind them; I have also seen them put the card in with car in Drive, with the car inching forward; I have seen them pausing to remember their PIN; I have seen them asking for a little patience from the male drivers behind them. Can't remember anything more at this moment.

Thank you for posting - had a good laugh!!

Turning the bag inside out is something I do - a lot :)

Renu said...

Smitha: See JP has written in a comment that he has seen women doing mnost of the things written here:)

J P Joshi said...

I can vouch for the things that I have written above. It happens ....aisa Toronto mein to hota hai....

The procedure given above is a little exaggeration though, like I have written earlier.

Good for a hearty laugh.

Renu said...

May be different things are done by different women, here they have contributed all to the same person and same time:)..making it a hillarious situation:)
