10 Struggles Only Female Drivers Understand

'Why are there so many cars out? It's so early!" -Me, every single day.

1. Trying to drive in high heels when you have an important meeting to attend to.

This is ridiculous. No girl can drive in stilettos. Y'all should just drive barefoot. 

2. Not being able to cruise the city with the windows down.

The smog and humidity in our country? It’s the perfect recipe for a bad hair day.

3. Your car being a mess.

Girls live in their cars. There are clothes, makeup, an extra pair of shoes, and accessories everywhere. Maybe an extra pair of falsies. When somebody hitches a ride with you going home, you always say, "Wait lang, girl. Ayusin ko lang 'yung likod."

4. Parking.

You wouldn't mind taking public transportation, but have you tried our public transportation? 

7. Waking up early.

Just so you can beat everyone else to work. But the traffic is horrible, no matter what time you leave.

8. Leaving work late.

9. Getting a flat tire, having the engine die on you, or overheating...sa Skyway.

Alam mo 'yung worst day ever? Eto 'yun.

10. Being unfairly judged for being a female driver.

It’s 2016, people! Not all women on the road are bad drivers. You may hate parking, but you're good at it.
