I am in the development stage of a trucker safety app. It will be the "Rainy D.etect App 2.5". Detects her detecting you and will offer speedy escape routes, diversion tactics, and emergency contact information. Hopeful for a release date soon, so stay tuned for details. There will be a discount for online buyers to save even more money. Just enter the code, "RUN NOW" during checkout. PayPal, credit cards accepted. No Bitcoin, cash or IOUs.smile.gif

You see, that's the difference between men and women.

Men need to compartmentalize things. A man's brain is like a box, and within that box are other individual boxes. Each box contains a single object, idea, thought, emotion, etc. When a man needs to use his brain, he goes to the box he needs at that moment, and opens it. When he needs something else, he must first close the first box before opening the next. He's incapable of opening two boxes at once. Therein lies the reason for having the apps all in one place. We will likely lose our place going from one app to the next.

A woman's brain however, it's like a fuse box. On the surface it appears neat and tidy. But behind the panel is an unorganized jumbled mess with wires going every whichaway. But when her synapses start firing she can tap into every one of them wires at once, accomplishing the task at hand as well as several others at the same time. The fact that her apps are scattered all over the place has no bearing. She is truly a well-organized symphony at which to marvel.

By the time I get my trucker path app opened, she's probably already found and opened the app, noted the background color, saw that she has two new e-mails, formulated a reply to said emails, trip planned her 30, fluffed her pillow, and petted the cat.

Meanwhile I'm just staring at the circle thingy goin round and round, waiting for the app to refresh...

I got to fuse box and realized how old you must be. My childhood home was built in the 1920s, it had a fuse box and a frankenstein looking power box switch. Anything newer had "circuit breakers", so twisted and disorganized or not....you are still old and I am forever 29.

Omg I hadnt thought of how bad I just dated myself by calling it a fuse box. Fortunately there are still some old geezers in here who know what I'm talking about.

Oh and the jumbled symphony comment was of course meant as a compliment of the highest order!

Turtle, That is one of the funniest things I have read in a long time. I'm stealing it and passing it on to both male and female friends alike. Ijust about choked on my hotdog reading it.
