Driving test

Well done on passing your test. Now you need to learn how to drive. How many of us have heard that one? Oh, and who is it usually from? Men, who invariably didn't pass first time, and continue to break the law either by speeding or drink driving or both. But still insist on giving you the benefit of their Fresh! Manly! Driving! Wisdom! So to all those women out there who pass their driving test first time in the face of blatant misogyny – 'women can't drive' etc etc etc, stupid crass jokes blah blah blah – er, ignore the advice from the men. It's worth nothing. If you have passed your test you are as good as they are on the road. And statistically, as just about everyone knows, far less likely to have an accident.
