Stupid Male Drivers Who Refuse to Ask Directions Waste Fuel and Money

Pat yourselves on the back, women — we're the greener (and smarter) sex. Well, when it comes to driving, anyway. Men, notorious for being too macho to ask for driving directions, waste about $3,000 on gas over the course of their lives, according to a new study. Turns out, 26% of men wait an hour to ask for help after they realize they're lost, while 74% of women will ask for directions as soon as they don't know where they are.

So, the next time your husband or partner insists that he knows where he's going when clearly he doesn't, remind him of all that gas (and money) he's wasting. Or just tell him that you're driving from now on. (He'll love that.)
