Can't drive on motorways
or in London (there are dragons on the roads you know)
Only drive automatics
Don't know where the stopcock is (or even what a stopcock is)
Won't open the door if dh not in

etc

I used to be a Pathetic Woman who didn't know where the stopcock was. Then I really needed to find out... and discovered we didn't actually have one. Felt a bit less pathetic after that grin (especially now we've had one put in and I DO know where it is).

I'll add to the list of pathetic attributes:

Can't go anywhere without a friend for moral support.

Don't drive at night
Can't reverse
Can't park
Defer to their husbands on every single decision

won't use a multi-storey car park, won't drive anywhere if she doesn't know the way.

Buys things in shops and take them home to see if hubby approves and if not, she takes them back.

I started to drive on mtorways and in London after that thread grin

I do think that was my only real Pathetic Woman-ism anyway... I am Hard As Nails now. Honest.

CountessDracula Fri 21-Sep-07 16:43:10

well done!

Wish I could find it, must have been in chat

Goes into a pub with you but refuses to go to the bar on her own so either you have to go with her or take the money and go for her (admittedly not seen since student days but possibly because I suddenly stopped frequenting pubs when I left uni).

(I don't know where the stopcock is blush) so shpuld maybe stay quiet

EffiePerine Fri 21-Sep-07 16:44:13

When driving:

Askign your DH if you're in the right gear
Getting out of the car so he can reverse for you
Refusing to drive ANYWHERE on your own

oooh i need this. I have NEVER driven in the UK since I passed my test. In LA, Kenya, everywhere else, but not Britain. And I need someone to slap me and tell me to stop being pathetic.

motherinferior Fri 21-Sep-07 16:46:26

I am shamelessly pathetic about driving. I don't like driving. I don't care. Or only slightly.
