    Re: The real sheila's wheels advert

    I think you've it the nail on the head there torledo - it is exactly that, a recognisable grouping in the insurance industry. They have backed up their 'women only' policy by having independent statistics of safety of driving so it isn't just being sexist. Being sexist would be 'in order to help women get ahead, we're not going to supply to men'.

    The statistics look nice on paper because women are so good at causing chaos in carparks and driving off without informing anyone especially around sale time, they just turn into frenzied morons

    Are you after the dubious honour of the first locked thread of 2008?

    Re: The real sheila's wheels advert

    Before all us women leap to our defence re women's driving etc etc can I just point out that as most of this thread was posted during the evening of New Year's Eve and early this morning, do we assume that you men had nothing better to do last night than sit at the computer on your own in a darkened room with a can of fizzy pop? No New Year invites, parties or pubs to visit?

    Funny thing is i watched that episode and it's no surprise that Sarah Harding pranged the Ferrari 'cos she was the 'raciest' of the lot - the others were cacking themselves, while sarah was itching to get on the track.....

    she was very quick around the track if a little bit exuberant.

    New Years invites ? You must be joking, this is EduGEEK not a Don Johnson lookalikes forum.....(although if you look like Don Johnson you'd never post on a forum, and you'd probably be out getting laid on NYE...rather than wasting tiime getting drunk at some god awful party populated with people considerably uglier than you)

    ....so that means - no friends, darkened room, three year old issue of 'cherie' under the mattress....and definitely no invites to any cool NYE parties....

    .....

    Or driving their partners to and from the local?

    Sorry chaps didn't realise I'd touched a raw nerve!

    Don Johnson? Why? All that hair spray and linen suits! Too pretty no woman wants a man prettier than herself.

    Ofcourse someone who merely looks like the great man and hasn't the charisma to pull off the pastel colours and white socks is appealing to no-one.....

    And in british wintertime 2007/08 that look is going to come across as a desperate caricature - but i'd have to give that person top marks for effort.

    Mmmmm white socks on a man!!!!

    No wonder some women struggle to drive - having to cope with Don Johnson lookalikes and men in white socks all over the place, it's enough to put anyone off their driving. ukeleft:
