Because every time they do their willie shrinks an inch LOL my mom told me that one years ago when I asked why we were driving in circles and my dad would not ask someone how to get to where we needed to go.

Men are too sure of themselves. Guess they were made that way -thats why Adam never listened and ate that apple.

do you know another thing about men they can never find Pen inside a woman's purse,even after removing half of its contents. and they can never find milk kept in front on the fridge's topshelf.It has been proven by a study .

lol I wish I knew. My husband got us lost in Philadelphia one time and he refused to stop and ask for directions! I kept telling him to just stop somewhere I would ask. He just kept on driving 45 minutes later we finally found our way.

That is So funny! Yes i agree. I think its because men are determined to pretend that they got lost on purpose and they knew were they were the whole time. Or something like that in all honesty i dont know why they dont ask for directions if its obvious they have no idea were they are going. I just see it as a big waste of gas. Thats why last Christmas i bought my husband a GPS device for his car...We argue much less!

There are two answers for this... 1) The men enjoy riding..Many time i too in the mood of riding doesn't reverse my bike at the destination...I love to drive in passion...Guys things guys know well.. 2) The men have pride so he will not degrade himself infront of his family...It seems that he will be counted as stupid if he ask somebody..

Better to be seen as stupid then to make your family insane driving around lost

God doesn't even know the answer. I don't go anywhere with my husband without directions. If I do it is not good. It is really weird how men act when they don't know where they are going. Mine won't even stop unless we are really late.

I always stop to ask for directions. Of course, I try to find my own way at first, but if i can't I don't wait to mush before asking someone.

They don't want to admitt they don't know something, so when you get upset becuase you're late, they can turn the focus on what a crab you are

thats hilarious, i will definetly tell my husband about that response, it could just be true given how badly men hate to do this, but stubborness can have its upside as well so i guess we have to take the bad with the good:)

I don't need to ask for directions. No joke. I always find my way without needing to ask and no I don't end up looking around for hours to find where I am going either.

It's their pride.The think if they have to ask for directions it make them half a man.A man should know how to find places.Silly isn't it? :)

because they have a big ego, and they're full of themselves and they never want to admit that they're wrong.

In my family it is just the opposite. My husband always wants to stop and ask strangers for directions and I am too embarrassed, I'd rather drive around and stay lost than ask someone.
