Tut tut Jackie never give these men an inch. You have let us women down. you now have to find one to make up for it.

Pity that seat belt law wasn't already in effect here yesterday when I was doing the driving back from the Lake in Wisconsin.

I know a young lady in New Zealand who'd soon wipe the smile off that guys face. When we were together in Italy she assured me that she could ride a motorbike and demonstrated the fact when we hired one for the day. I don't know if any of you have motored along the Amalfi Drive but, if you have, you'll know why I didn't smile for a couple of weeks after we'd returned to Sorrento.

JohnB said...

Ah!...La Dolce Vita!
To be mounted behind una bella donna on una biccicletta made for two!
I'm surprised you weren't smiling for a whole month...but then again knowing the Amalfi coastal road and the reputation of lady drivers I'm surprised your here to talk about it...so she must have been telling the truth and has proven that women can drive, ...however I assume she didn't talk much with the wind in her face and you hanging onto her waist for dear life which is a blessing.

Oh Jackie what have you done!See how the men are all preening now?

Del said...

Val B, I was taking the ladies' side. I've always treated them as, at least my equal, sometimes my superiors. All this psuedo-macho stuff is usually to do with an identity crisis or a personality disorder. You have to live in southern Italy to see how women are regarded as second class people, particularly the wives. You rarely see a wife in a bar, or club, with her husband, that privelege is only for the girlfriend or mistress.

JohnB said...

They say Italian men can only love and respect their own mothers...but I know from personal experience that's not true either.
Let's remember that this is only a joke and we shouldn't take it at all seriously.
My wife doesn't like it when I complain about her driving when I'm the passenger and vise versa.
Take Mrs.Bucket, (...er sorry Bouquet), for example we all know that it's a comedy and just a joke and her husband and brother-in-law aren't really representative of how people behave...uhm!...on second thoughts as some people come to mind...maybe they are...and the show is larger than life.

JohnB said...

Actually it's good thing we don't still live in the dark ages or the Victorian era....I'm all for women's lib and equal rights, it's about time...but, If a chap is not careful in this country he may find himself being politically incorrect if he offers a woman his seat on a crowded train or holds a door open for her and says after you madame. Confusing isn't it...that's not the way we were taught to behave.

JohnB said...

One more thing...puzzling as it all is sometimes when it comes to the "gentler sex"...I say...
Vive le difference!

Pardon my French.

John I would hope all your comments about us superior beings
are taken as lightly as the comments about you lot (men) of course we dont take them seriously,
ahem!!!! and I love having doors opened for me but it is usually me who gives up my seat to people less fortunate.( Mainly men)

Yvonne when people open doors for you. do you think they are trying to tell you something. Especially if they have your coat in their hands at the time?
