  1. 1. If person X has been driving for 30 years and person Y for 20, does that mean that person X is a better driver just because they're more experienced

    • no. it has nothing to do with experience. a person can learn to drive and after a few months be better than many people that have been driving all their lives.

    • yes, person X for sure is a better driver

Today i called adobe customer service because my photoshop was crashing, and first it took like 20 min for this woman to answer and ask me a whole bunch of questions, give me some numbers, etc and then she said she'd transfer me to technical support. After 1.5 hours i gave up. i don't ever remember waiting for this long. I nursed, made myself an omelet, ate, got dressed, changed the baby's diaper, got him ready to leave, and finally i gave up. and i'm the most impatient person i know. how long would u wait?

I don't drive but I think you can excel even if you aren't driving for X many years compared to the other person.

I love Irish Spring body wash smell. But I don't use it, though I buy it every month for my husband, I love the smell of it on him :P but not on me.

I don't think I can wait more than half an hour on a hand held phone, now if the phone is on speaker, I might wait for one hour or so.

Is Charles giving you ####### about your driving again?? :angry:

I am a loyal consumer of Irish Spring - the classic green bars, not the ghey "sport" blue ones, #######!

When I lived in Israel and they were not available, I used to load up with the family-packs, 12 bars to a pack at Walmart in the US and bring them back with me.

When we were stuck at NVC, I was calling every couple of nights, getting busy tones, waiting on hold, just to be told night after night that we were still in "Administrative Processing, unfortunately sir I cannot give you a timeline for this....." :angry: Never stopped me from calling back the next night.

I am impatient. I keep hanging up, and calling back. I push "0" repeatedly until I get a live person. If that don't work, I don't push anything, and then eventually it will ring through to an operator. :yes:

What I hate most, this is a bussiness thing, is when someone "urgently" needs to contact me, and the call back number is voice mail. So sorry, if you don't give me a direct line, you won't get me to call back. :angry:

And, clear out your mail boxes, people! "I am sorry, that box is full." :bonk:

he said he's a better driver. i asked why do u think that, he answered because i've been driving longer than you, i think that we're both great drivers, i couldn't say who is better. but i don't think driving for a longer period of time means that you're better than anyone who's been driving less, maybe the majority of people, but not everybody. i've been in a car with older people that sukc at driving.

I admire the taxi-drivers in Guayaquil, Ecuador -- they drive the way that I wish to, but am effectively prohibited from by the number of bored constables hiding under the freeway, si man.

I like the green Irish Spring, and blue Coast, very much, si man. However, they aren't always kind to my skin, no man. In Ecuador, I found a local brand called Protex, which comes in a surprisingly high number of scents and colors. I stocked up last time (Customs commented on this at POE!) and will do so again. Also, the Mexican soap called Escudo (pink and perhaps also white) is pretty good, and the wife likes to use it, si man.

If a phone isn't answered by a live person (who can HELP you) by the third ring, it's customer DISservice, si man.

Years don't always make for good experience in driving. I'm sure there are many who have driven much less time as me, but are better because they haven't picked up the habits I have now. I'm going to have to study again lots before I take the test to get my state license. :lol:

I like the smell of Irish Spring, but I don't buy it. I prefer using liquid scented soap rather than bar soap.

And I'd probably wait for around 10 minutes, unless it's a REAL important call then I'll wait longer. I'm not sure I'd wait for over an hour though.

Charles, don't be a macho and stop saying you drive better 'cus you have more time on the road, it's irrelevant. Some people drive their whole lives and will never be good, some have affinity with the road. Plus there are different types of drivers, those who think being risky but being great at maneuvering makes them the best driver, and those who are more proper and attentive and prevent being in situations where crazy maneuvers would be necessary, and think that makes them the better driver. IMO, a good driver is the one you feel completely safe in the car with, where you don't constantly watch the road, 'cus you know they can handle whatever comes their way AND won't make you bounce around like a ball.

I dunno that brand of soap, never smelled it.

I usually wait 10-15 minutes before hanging up.

I think we shouldn't just discard experience in driving.. yeah, skills and dexterity, some people have it more than others, and maybe the guy driving for 3 years has more dexterity than the one driving for 10.. but maybe the veteran driver has seen some crazy stuff, accidents or other situations, that compensate for the dexterity and give a better understanding of a situation, rather than a quick reflex...

I wouldn't say for everyday situations an experienced driver is better than a newer one, but for unexpected situations, experience might come handy

For those who need antibacterial soap, it's a little more interesting than Dial or Safeguard, si man. The "herbal" and "fresh" Protex scents are quite highly perfumed. I don't like the "Deo" variety, though, no man.
