I think women know all the things you have listed all too well. (Yup, we do have some common sense.)

One of the things that drives me crazy here (GHA) is no matter what the situation it is Assumed that a woman/mature adult is With the man in front, or behind her in a cue. I think it's called Invisability Factor.

No matter who you are in proximity to, the fast food person, the receptionist, the usher, etc. will pass you over. When you say, "Heh..I'm here too.", you get, "Oooh... I thought you were with Him. ('Him' being anyone male in close proximity to you.) If the guy closest to you is 16 to 25, they assume you are with your son. 25 to 40, maybe son-in law? Over 80, then he must be your father. (I'm hoping Not my husband!)

I was behind an older gent (must have been late 80's to late 90's who cloud barely keep himself in the upright position with a walker) & the receptionist passes me over & says, "I thought you were with Him". Reality check for the young lady...If I was taking this very frail man to the doctor, he would be with me, not the other way around.

One day we may see leash laws & licenses for women in the GHA.

"Sorry sir, we had to impound her. She was reported wandering at large, off leash & without her owner, through the Deli dept. at the Metro. We nabbed her as she was walking through the park with a bag of pastrami." AAAAARRRRRRGGGHHHH!

Sorry for interrupting! Back to LRT!
