Why Women Are 8 Times Better Divers Than Men

From Site:
1. Scubagirls don’t have that macho, cowboy, risk taking, ‘lets impress our mates’ thing happening. Their dives are well within the limits, performed carefully and safely, with no corner cutting.
2. Regarding customers, I’d say in general a gentler manner. With students especially. Sometimes it can be almost motherly to young divers. And much less intimidating to new divers on the scene. New scubagirls will immediately let themselves be taken under her wing.

3. Multi-tasking! Scubagirls, wait, any girl, any situation. Scubagirls can multitask. Think of and do ten things at once. That’s good for dealings with divers, forms, coxwains and gear, all at the same time.
4. As above, but scubagirls can be pretty organised regarding it all too. It will continue to amaze me, that women can put a hand on anything, anytime, anywhere. Like they have a ‘stuff’ radar. This includes, the O-ring jar floating around, the liability forms, the spare hood. Where is it? Oh, there it is!
5. Preparation!!! A set of clothes for if the weather turns hot, a set for if it turns cold, food, drinks, back up pens, spare everything, seasickness pills, a diveslate with it all listed, and everything in between. Don’t even try and call it anal or neurotic, it is simply planning ahead for every possibility. Isn’t it? Maybe women do go a bit overboard. What a great choice of words for someone who works on a boat… But seriously, women love lists, and prove that they work.
6. To point six. An innate ability to sharpen people up. Women can be demanding, especially underwater. She will always make her point clear, even in sign language, and not take no for an answer. If she wants up, it’s time to go, even if you have 150bar left. There is no ‘it’ll be ‘right!’ Women divers will not leave anything to chance when diving, and somehow she’ll get her way.
7. Women can always think of a point to make, even if number seven was quite difficult to come up with.
8. And finally, women are 8 times better divers than men because; they always have men looking out for them! It makes sense! All those extra sets of eyes watching a female diver do her thing? They are bound to catch any mistake before it even happens. This doesn’t make women better by default, oh no no! It will be put down to them only concentrating on their buddy, or anyone in their care and themselves. Because women are never wrong, although they can admit it when they are.
