Why do women always misunderstand what men are tying to tell them?

There is this interesting incident that happened to my friend. I and he were walking along the road one morning when we saw a girl on a scooter pass by us. The headlight of her scooter was turned on. We swear by the rule of the road here and so we indicated that to her. Now in this part of the world such an indication is given by folding the fingers of your right hand repeatedly as if you are showing a small child how a bulb glows. Now she got offended and took the two of us to task. In the middle of the day, on the road we had to listen to all that nonsense from a woman..all for having done our duty!!! Women really dont understand what men are trying to say to them!! Do they?

This post is as funny as it is serious, or vise versa. Here's why I say that. 1. I've live in many states and traveled even more, and have never seen nor heard of that hand sign. Maybe she wasn't from your "neck of the country. 2. Law requires lights on a 2 wheel vehicle which is street legal, to come on when the ignition is turn on and there is no way for the driver to turn them off except by turning off the ignition. 3. The funny part is it seems she didn't explain this to you, so she probably didn't didn't know that herself. Now, aint that just like a woman... ;)

That hand sign does exist my friend. Atleast here in India we do help out everyone on the street this way, even the ones in four wheelers who might have forgotten to turn off their head lights at night and might have started driving it in the morning oblivious to this fact. And yeah well pointed out! women are women...

I agree that often times women take things the wrong way, but men also take things the wrong way- men and women are quite different and I think that we just process things differently. Or maybe she was just having a bad day and took it out on you guys.

Whatever it is.. it was one terrifying experience for the two of us. That day onwards I've stopped following these "helping others" kind of traffic rules..
