You should have gotten out of her way. Tom-Tom knows where it is going. Evidently, you don't. Be more careful next time.

this yet again proves the stereotype that woman cant drive i mean the OP herself crashed into a fence and the driver was female femenists prove me wrong that this stereotype is fake because 9/10 of these fml involve a woman being at fault

You can substitute a Womans inability to Navigate with a device, yet unfortunately you can not use a device to give them common sense. Also, it might have been that the Tom Tom was set to a female setting that could have led to the crash. I would like to point out that if you put a woman in a mall then they totally know where are the secret passages are, ways to sales, bathrooms, exits... now if we can only adapt this type of setting to the outside world...
This is such bullshit! Nobody ever says anything about men's driving whenever we get another FML about a guy doing stupid shit in a vehicle, but one thing about a woman and everyone comes out saying they shouldn't be allowed to drive. Like I'm so sure you're clicking "yes" on a submission clearly about a male driver. People are bad drivers in general. Men exaggerate women's driving mostly because they feel emasculated if their wife or girlfriend is the one behind a wheel, so they take out their insecurities on female incapability. You're not funny. You're moronic. Go find another site like TFLN and whine about bitches not giving you blow jobs.
If you are in fact a chick, RightSaidFred, you're an idiot if you can't drive. Just because YOU can't doesn't mean ALL women can't. I assume you're also white? Does that mean ALL white people can't drive? I assume you're American? Does that mean ALL Americans can't drive? You fail deductive reasoning. You also fail self-respect.
hey people. this hasnt happend but is about to. stupid ass loser: starchild21 is going to comment on this FML. he is really annoying and a fucknut. could you please tell him to shut the fuck up when he does? he always posts his stupid myspace address. so you will know him. he is really stupid and a loser. thanks. :)
i can't tell if this woman is stupid or smart. if she legitimately thought that her "tom-tom" telling her to go left was an acceptable excuse, she's stupid. if she somehow sues the GPS company for having a dysfunctional piece of GPS like that other woman who sued McDonald's because her "coffee was hot", then this woman is a freaking genius, and then OP, your life is truly fucked, because there is no competing with a woman like that.
You do know that third degree burns are all the way to the bone? You also know that water boils at 100°C? (And can't physically be pushed beyond that in our atmosphere) And I'm sure you also know that in a third degree burn the skin is so damaged it will literally pull off like chicken? Still. lichen seems to be choosing her battle carefully, as if she actually read any of the FMLs about men failing at driving, they actually degenerate into bullshit statics in an attempt to show men are worse at driving. The simple stats are; Women incur 5.7 accidents on average per million miles driven Men incur 5.1 accidents on average per million miles driven. Many will claim that men incur more accidents per year than women, but unfortunately that number means nothing, because men drive 74% more miles per year than women. Regardless; OP, that sucks. the_stereotype is completely right, though. If she's incredibly stupid, enjoy your insurance money. If she's incredibly smart, you're fucked. So is Tom-Tom.
To #109, 84% of statistics are made up. =) Yes I know that the accident rate is technically higher for women than it is for men, but it's not THAT much higher. And it doesn't take into account the AT FAULT accidents. SO where as women could technically have more accidents, less of them could be caused by their own fault. The reason why women tend to be lesser skilled at driving is because they're more likely to get road rage, and their not as good as focusing on one single task at a time, they're better at multi-tasking (I realize that driving is similar to multi-tasking but the majority of the focus is on the road ahead). So, while the stereotype may seem true at times, it doesn't apply to ALL female drivers. Just like the stereotype of asians being bad drivers doesn't apply to ALL asians, and that not all teenage boys race their cars like another stereotype implies. =)
#109 Fin How about you get some recent and updated stats before attempting to put up an argument. Also make sure you have a reliable source! Anyone who was moved by his comment should really grow a brain and learn to think for his/her self before believing anything someone tells you.
Love what hate mail? Trying to be revelant to the conversation pretending I sent you a private message or something? Notice that I didn't argue that women were better at anything, just that your average person regardless of gender is probably a bad driver. Way to jump to conclusions to justify your specious and sexist claims. (Bumper cars? Seriously?)
Bullshit, if the coffee gave her third degree burns, there would be no cup, or coffee for that matter, because it'd have to bee 500+ degrees farenheit to give her 3rd degree burns, which is not only impossible because water boils at 212, but also impossible because it would have melted the cup.
oi #109 I'm not sure why you think water always boils at 100 degrees because that's just plain not true. Depending on how high or low you are in comparison to sea level it varies. Regardless, it's irrelevant. McDonalds serves their coffee at 180-190 degrees in order to maintain taste, and you get third degree burns instantly when the temperature is above 160 degrees....so imagine how rapidly it happens at 180-190 degrees, and when your clothing is absorbing it and keeping it on your skin. It's like tea, the hotter the water the more the steeping and the better the taste, and it's also why coffee at home doesn't taste as good as the coffee in the shops. The average household coffee is between 130-140 degrees which would take more than five seconds to cause a third degree burn. To the FML chick, I hope that lady takes her tom tom out of her car, she's lucky she didn't kill you.
all the people above that have jeered at 'Lichen' should really understand and process through their thick brains the argument that they have proposed before humiliating themselves with their counter-arguments that are not even valid. everyone from both sexes are able to drive competently, dont give the bullshit that 'men drive better', plucking this statement out of your arse. regardless of the stats, the difference is marginal #109, those statistics are so general, as said above, they do not account for accident where the fault is not the female's. #73, you're a douchebag. you probably let any man have his way with you. just because you're a bad driving, doesnt mean other women are as incompetent as you are.
I just want to point out that one day i decided to surprise my girlfriends mom with her fav starbucks drink. It is very high maintainance and involves many steps for perfection, the key....being heated to exactly 195 degrees, now most coffee places have actually rejected to make the drink because it's too hot, getting into the car recieving that drink last to keep it warm, the lid wasn't sealed properly and as i was holding it from the top the ENTIRE drink fell on top of me...all 195 degrees of it....guess what NO BURNS WHAT SO EVER!!! I'm no scientist at all, heck it couldve been degrees c or f...all i know is if it's THAT hot that it isn't always served and I'm fine, that chick at mcdonalds should be fine as well. Just sayin'
Just random research That age-old stereotype about dangerous women drivers is shattered in a big new traffic analysis: Male drivers have a 77 percent higher risk of dying in a car accident than women, based on miles driven. McCartt and Fischbeck said men take more risks, speed more, drink and drive more. “They do stupider things,” said Fischbeck, http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16698153/ another source http://www.insurance.com/article.aspx/Are_Men_Better_Drivers_Than_Women/artid/259 Totally shows how, "men drive more than female" argument is flawed btw i'm not trying to start a men vs women debate here because i outgrew that behavior when i turned five. I don't hate men or women, i was just searching about female drivers and hoping to find evidence on men and women being equally capable of driving safe, but instead i found this.
Retarded people shouldn't even be allowed to have a license, or even get out of the house, they pose a danger to society.
...a drum told her to turn? What kind of fucked up drug was she on?
that is not true. the whole stereotypical way of thinking that women can't drive is so stupid. i drive just fine and i'm a girl. in fact, why do boys have higher rates on their insurance? clearly it's because women are such bad drivers *eye roll*. not to mention that my boyfriend didn't have a problem letting me drive his car even though it was a Honda Pilot and i'm used to driving a Honda Civic. i drove it just fine. anyway, the GPS systems were invented for people who actually have a brain. unfortunately some people, like the woman in this FML, don't know how to interpret directions and look at the on-screen map when using a GPS. i've never had a problem following the directions on my Navigon. so, the technology is not the problem. it's the person using it that is the problem. people don't know how to think anymore. FYL, but at least the lady admitted she was at fault and her insurance will go up and such.
Boys have higher rates on insurance because they drive around 75% more than woman, therefore the insurance companies know they will be dishing more out because of men. Secondly, women don't have brains. And third, You'd have to be a bad driver to LOOK AT THE ON-SCREEN MAP while driving. Way to help your case, woman.
to 121: i didn't mean that when i drive i STARE AT THE SCREEN. i mean when it says to turn somewhere i GLANCE at the screen to see what the road should look like in case i get confused. use some common sense i really think you are the one without the brain. oh and btw, i'd love to see someone without a brain attempt college level chemistry and biology. they're a challenge for me and i'm pretty sure i have a brain.
