Women at The Wheel

From the San Francisco Chronicle's "Car Talk":
Dear Tom and Ray: In January, I visited the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. I parked on a slightly sloping street in Golden Gate Park, locked the car and went off to the museum. When I returned to my car, I noticed a chunk of a tree under my front tire and a note on my windshield that said my car had started rolling down the hill. Apparently, I didn't turn my wheels to the curb, didn't put my standard transmission in first gear and didn't set my parking brake. What are the chances of some people noticing my car moving, stopping it, having the piece of wood close enough to put under the tire and (this is the amazing part) be willing to do all of that? - Barbara
No. The amazing part is that I am still amazed at women's idiocy. And that was one who had some business to do at the California Academy of Sciences, mind you. (Highlighting by me.)
