    Why do women play with their hair when they do something wrong while driving?

      For the same reason men scratch their sideburns, beard or other parts of their face.  It's a human thing.

      I have my license, but live a carless lifestyle.  I do, however, get pedestrian rage.

    Why do men think they're the only ones who can drive? Any insurance company will tell you that that is MOST assuredly NOT the case. wink

        No. Especially not in the car. When I'm busy, my hair is up, out of my way, and left alone.

        Get hit by a car once, and you don't do anything but drive when you're behind the wheel my friend - whether you're a chick or not.

    Do insurance agents play with their hair when they make a mistake?

    1. Shadesbreath profile image83
      Shadesbreathposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      They would, Rochelle, but if the adhesive is no good, it comes off and, well, it's embarrassing etc.

    It is because when we do something wrong we revert back to childlike mannerisms to cover our embarrassment and/or comfort our insecurities. Men do it too- typically it is something such scratching your beard/chin or upper lip. The hand gestures in front of the face is comparable to the reaction a child has when they are in the wrong, they cover their face or eyes as if they are hiding and you cant see them- same type of thing.

    (I studied ASL and Body language for many, many years...lol)

      I wonder why some people decide their car is the appropriate place to pick their noses? I often bare witness to the determination of some drivers to find whatever they are looking for within their nostril...??? I wonder if it is considered a driving hazard? For some reason, it is really distracting for me- but the one doing the digging seems to be content and I have yet to have anyone notice by bewildering stares. 

      lol, just thought I would throw in my random thought-

        I have seen several people actually put in their mouth what they dig out

          either that or flick the prize out the window...

            Shadesbreathposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            It's best to see them dig at a red light, they flop their arm out the window, their thumb and forefinger tips cycling together as they roll the globular prize into a proper sphere for flicking. I often strain to see if I can tell where they go, hoping to see the nasal nugget sticking to the paint on the door of the car next to them, but they're just too small to see.
