FORTUNE DISCUSSES THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN: #2
A woman will generally admire an ornate dessert for the artistic
work it is, praising its creator and waiting a suitable interval before
she reluctantly takes a small sliver off one edge. A man will start by
grabbing the cherry in the center.
The average man thinks his Y chromosome contains complete repair
manuals for every car made since World War II. He will work on a problem
himself until it either goes away or turns into something that "can't be
fixed without special tools".
The average woman thinks "that funny thump-thump noise" is an
accurate description of an automotive problem. She will, however, have the
car serviced at the proper intervals and thereby incur fewer problems than
the average man.
