Just to check it out, I did try to see whether my theory is right. I was proven cent per cent right. Out of 25 women (most are my friends and colleagues at office) when I asked them about 'Nissan transmissions' they looked at me like I have come from another planet and am talking some alien language. It made me smile thinking that these are women who earn four figure salaries and drive luxury hi-tech cars by themselves all over the country.
I then changed my strategy and asked the same ladies model specific questions thinking that it may ring a bell. So I modified my question to include the model - from 'what is Nissan transmissions?' I graduated to 'what is Nissan altima transmission. This time I met with recognition on the name Nissan Altima but regarding Nissan Altima transmission I did not get one - not even one - woman out of 25 to even give me a hint. It actually did not matter whether it were Nissan transmissions I was talking about or Nissan Altima transmissions. The word 'transmission' for all practical purposes was not English. The term Nissan made it a bit recognizable but when it became Nissan transmission - it totally became garbled talk.
My little research will tell you one thing, first and foremost, i.e. women are not interested in cars. The drive good cars have fantastically highly paid salaries and more in sophisticated circles. But when it comes to cars they have absolutely no interest. When I asked who advices them with their vehicles, most said they relied on a male member. Some said it was their husbands, boyfriends and some said they have good mechanics at their disposal. When asked whether they would like to learn about cars and their function if they were given an opportunity, most said that it would be a waste of time.
Hence, the women of today will forever depend on man for at least one reason - to maintain her vehicle. However modern, and however advanced the science becomes (we may do without needing men even for babies) we will still need them to change our tire and when to change the oil.
