Nearly the weekend so a time for something funny methinks!!!

Haha......I've been a bit like a bus with blogging this week, lol......you wait for ages for one and then 3 come along in a short space of time!!!

The following was sent to me today.....by my husband .......and having read it I am now of the conclusion that I must be male!!! See what you think, lol!!


THE LAST BASTIONS OF MALE SUPREMACY


MALE V FEMALE AT THE CASH MACHINE


A new sign in the Bank reads:


'Please note that this Bank is installing new Drive-through cash machines enabling customers to withdraw cash without leaving their vehicles.


Customers using this new facility are


requested to use the procedures outlined below when accessing their accounts.


After months of careful research, MALE & FEMALE Procedures have been developed. Please follow the Appropriate steps for your gender.'


*******************************

MALE PROCEDURE:


1... Drive up to the cash machine. 2. LOWER your car window. 3. Insert card into machine and enter PIN. 4. Enter amount of cash required and withdraw. 5. Retrieve card, cash and receipt. 6. Raise window. 7. Drive off.

************************* ******

FEMALE PROCEDURE: (Unfortunately, most of this is the Truth.!!)


1. Drive up to cash machine. 2. Reverse and back up the required amount to align car window with the machine. 3. Put hand brake on, put the window down. 4. Find handbag, remove all contents on to passenger seat to locate card. 5. Tell person on mobile phone you will call them back and hang up. 6. Attempt to insert card into machine. 7. Open car door to allow easier access to machine due to its excessive distance from the car. 8. Insert card. 9. Re-insert card the right way. 10. Dig through handbag to find diary with your PIN written on the inside back page.11. Enter PIN . 12. Press cancel and re-enter correct PIN. 13. Enter amount of cash required. 14. Check makeup in rear view mirror. 15. Retrieve cash and receipt. 16. Empty handbag again to locate purse and place cash inside. 17. Write debit amount in cheque book and place receipt in back of it. 18. Re-check makeup. 19. Drive forward 2 feet. 20. Reverse back to cash machine. 21. Retrieve card. 22. Re-empty hand bag, locate card
holder, and place card into the slot provided! 23. Give dirty look to irate male driver waiting behind you. 24. Restart stalled engine and pull off. 25. Redial person on mobile phone. 26. Drive for 2 to 3 miles. 27. Release Hand Brake.

Personally I do know there are a few ladies out there that would be as ditzy as the aforementioned......fortunately none of them are friends of mine........ but I have seen antics at normal cashpoints (ATM's) that leave me totally bemused and on one occasion my gast was totally flabbered!!!


Robbie (my ever-wonderful and patient husband and he who thinks he should be obeyed ......some hope, lol) has just given me a diary for 2012....entitled 'Do it later......A 2012 planner (or non-planner) for the Creative Procrastinator'..........Yep he knows me well!!! We did debate who was the worst procrastinator and I am afraid it is definitely me - why put off till tomorrow when it would be better leaving it for a bit longer in the hope someone else will do it or it may even sort itself out!!! No seriously, I do procrastinate a bit but not a lot!!

Anyway, time to go and think about dinner and I will leave you with this thought......Multi-tasking is a good thing, it means that you get at least one thing done if nothing else!!!

Love to you all

I don't drive now either but have seen what you described at the bank many times. lol. It pleasures me to add that I only saw it twice so believe most women aren't that ditzy. Thanks for the laugh. Have an awesome day.

I saw that happen twice so guess that means most women aren't that ditzy. I have to add that it was quite impressive to see the difference in the way the male did it and the way the female did it. It was right on the mark, actually. We are as different as night and day. For example: a man, if asked direction, can give them in a few sentences. We women almost take them on a tour of United States before getting them where they want to go. Or is that just me? LOL
