Female Logic?

I took daughter No1 for a hospital appointment today.

As OH has my car, I had to drive hers. The appointment was eye exam and involved drops, so she couldn't drive herself.

As I started up the car, the radio was so loud that I had to turn it down... and immediately heard a loud rackety noise coming from the rear of her car.
(I'm no mechanic but I think it's the exhaust?)

I asked her how long the noise had been there.
Her exact response:
."Don't really know, but if you turn the music up loud enough you can't hear it
# ProblemSolved"

I always have the music on in the car because I listen to the engine all the time and I really am some kind of mechanical hypochondriac.

I always notice a different sound in the car ,always have done from a child.

Dad had a motorbike and side car ,no music !!! but I could always tell a difference in the engine noise...used to frighten me.

Edit..bricks coming your way yes Duck !
