On my daily commute to my workplace, my driving route includes a stretch of Hwy 169 from 93rd Ave in Brooklyn Park to the Hwy 94/694 West exit, approximately 3 ½ miles.
Within the first mile or so on 169, there is typically bumper-to-bumper traffic due to there being traffic lights in that area. Inevitably, I’ll scan the cars surrounding me while waiting for a light to turn green. I usually don’t have search too strenuously to find a woman applying makeup on her face while stopped in traffic. In fact, the application normally continues when traffic initially moves forward.
This begs the obvious question: Isn’t it a lot easier to do that in front of a mirror at home?
Now, let me emphasize one thing. I am not making this inquiry out of anger or frustration towards women who apply their cosmetics in traffic. If the truth be told, I’m quite impressed with the precision of the application while trying to maneuver your standard size vehicle.
All of that said, I would like to take a very non-scientific survey.
Why is it that women choose to put on their makeup in the car?
Too busy getting the kids (and husband) ready so they can get out the door on time?
For you single gals, maybe it’s a spontaneous thing as you see a nice-looking gentleman in the next car.
