Get pissed off

I've never known a woman in my life who could read a map worth a shit, and if I had a dollar for every time my female "navigator" said, "Oh! I think we should have turned left back there," I'd be a rich man. Most wimmen simply CANNOT read a map.
Even if you tell them ahead of time, "We should be getting close to the turnoff on highway 35. Let me know when you see it," you usually get--- "Oh! I think that was Highway 35 we just passed!" And usually, you just passed Highway 35. If you are watching the road and expecting her to watch road signs, you're fucked.
I do much better all by myself.
Of course, science shows us why.
Rahman and his colleagues designed the study to test a theory that gay men and lesbian women might show "cross-sex shifts" in some cognitive abilities as well as in their sexual preferences.
What the hell does that mean? I need a lesbian navigator the next time I take a long road trip because SHE can read a map and a gay guy can't? Or I need to let a gay guy drive while I navigate? I know good and well that most wimmen CANNOT read a map or watch road signs. But I also don't think a study of 80 people proves anything.
I've just never seen a woman who wasn't damned good at getting me lost.
