A friend sent this to me. I knew from the beginning that it would make fun of women's way of doing things, but I have to admit to numbers 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 24, 26, and 27. At least we girls can laugh at ourselves. Thanks for sharing this Kisi!

Hilarious, although not when I'm behind somebody who is actually doing this. I'm reminded of the "viva la difference" attitude of Maurice Chevalier in "Thank Heaven For Little Girls," and the practical Professor Higgins in "Why Can't a Woman Be More Like a Man." My father used to say, "Women - can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em." And he grinned when he said it.
