Women....

I'm just having a vent here, so dont take offence if you are an Intelligent Female......But why are women so retarded when it comes to anything mechanical or technical?

My misus made a point of hovering up a load of hair and string a couple of weeks ago. As a result the brushes stopped turning, and the belt which drives the brushes burned out.

£15 was the price of a new belt which arrived yesterday.

I installed it. Great, clean carpets again!

Until she decided to hover up some cot sheets this evening! What happened? I bet you can F***ing guess.

LOL. I was thinking along the same lines as Kempez haha.

Anyway, so your wife can't handle the vacuum? heh.

I hate the smell of the belt when it starts to burn out, ugh bleh.

can not really agree with that.

a couple of days ago my sister opened the computer cleaned out all the dust and removed a cd-rom and put in a dvd-rw and it all works great.

cpu temp is down over 16celsius now and she has seen the inside of a computer 2 perhaps 3 times in her entire life.

most women i know and have meet has no or little trouble with mechanics and technical stuff.

Well maybe you live in an enlightened part of the world

Claire isn't afraid of Technology - she just isn't really into PC's to be honest. Therefore she doesn't know anything about them. Plus she is a little bit useless with mechanical stuff

Agreed. I am on the oposite end of the scale. I've never met a woman that knows what a Phillips head screw driver is.
