I'm not passing comment on this..

BBC News - China shopping centre builds 'car park for women'

But if the ladies get their own car park, we should get one too..

YouTube - Tightest Parallel Parking

Cheers,

Mr Russell Swift at his finest, had the privilege of working with him a few times and he never ceases to amaze me. Last time was at the Scottish Motor Show at SECC he was doing is thing with the mini's and I was driving a Lotus Exige at stupid speeds inside, then he literally rang rings round me in a cooper works.

One of the best drivers and nicest people you could ever wish to meet.

Saw this one earlier today and was tempted to post it then.

It's so stereotypical that I found myself asking if it was an April fools joke, then I came to my senses...

Could we also have a "Ladies Only Queue" at the pay and display machines.
Then I do not have to wait behind Madam whilst she - open handbag whilst standing on 1 leg (some times the handbag is in a shopping bag and needs to be found - dont ask) - rumages for purse - ferrets for right change - feeds in coins - gets change - puts change in purse - puts purse in bag - closes bag. Puts bag back in bag. Gets ticket and departs. Enough time for me to have a wash and shave. AAAAAAAAAAGH/

How about 'Men Only' tills at supermarkets to avoid exactly the same thing. Its not like they're surprised when they have to pay, or that they haven't had time while their shopping is going down the conveyor.

And I hate the 'Ooh I think I have the right change somewhere.....'.

I watched a woman at Morrisons make 9 attempts at parking in a space recently. It was a wide aisle too, and she was in a Jap micocar. I felt like telling her to give up and go home. I gave a little clap though, which didn't go down too well.

You are talking about "mini statement women" and they are everywhere! Named because they are the only people to request a mini statement from a cash point when the clue is in the effing name: CASH POINT. Get cash and move on please!

Personally I think a "speak your weight" machine at every till would speed things along nicely!
