 Till death do us part...

Last night I was driving my wife's new Honda accord that she drives to work (~40 mi each way). She had just gotten the 5000 mile oilchange. The 5-speed transmission has slots labeled 1,2, D3 and D. She mentioned that she drives in D3 saying that she thought it was overdrive. I started 'talking loudly', "Can't you see on the tach that you're turning 4000 rpm at 60 mph?" "Oh," she said calmly, "I never use THAT dial. I did notice that the car ran smoother with the shifter in D."

If it was a guy instead of a gal, a guy when confronted with the error would say he is keeping it in D3 for acceleration on demand !!!!

I agree with Dennis, my wife bought a Subaru for going between work and home, theother day she's telling me something was falling off the front. I told her to take it to the dealer as it should be warranttee. Later I found out she was trying to drive over a snow bank (why else buy a four wheel drive?) to get the car under cover with out shoveling out in front of the door. I love life, and the pursuit of happiness, I just haven't been able to put it together with the tools I have yet to work with. Time to go shopping. For more tools that is!

And here I thought I was special and only my good lady did 'silly' things.

We took her Bimmer to the farm over New Years, when 'we' go somewhere se always wants me to drive, presumably because it prevents my 'constructive critisism' of her driving habits.

20 minutes from the house I started feeling all sweaty and nauseous, I thought I was coming down with something nasty. I commented to her that maybe we should turn around and go home, the last thing I wanted to do was infect the whole family.

She's a MIRACLE worker.

She suggested I turn off the heated seat......

It seems that she leaves the seat on and set to HIGH since it's so cozy & warm.

As a former (confirmed bachelor) employee used to say "WOMEN, you cant live with them & you can't bury them deep enough that the dogs won't smell the body!"


Best of luck.

My wife wanted a 4 wheel drive vehicle so she could see her parents in the winter. Her parents live on top a mountain and their little dirt lane is a 1/4 mile long & straight up and pretty much stays a sheet of ice during the winter. I bought her a Bronco II and explained the push button 4X4 and told her not to run it on dry road. She was afraid to use it and started up her parents dirt lane which was a sheet of ice. She barely got started and had the Bronco II turned sideways. She took her cell phone out and called her uncle up who has a Bronco II also. He comes walking down the dirt lane slipping and sliding and gets in the car. He tells her to push the button and they go right up the hill!!!! Needless to say she came home and complained. I got her a V-8 AWD Explorer. The gas mileage is a killer but at least she doesn't have to figure out when to put it in 4 wheel drive!!!!!!!!!! Wives, you gotta love them or lose everything you have!!!!!!!!

 Till death do us part...

A few days before Christmas, with the snow coming down, my wife took the 4WD Ranger to work. I got a call from her on the way home that she had slid off the steep and winding gravel road that leads to our house. I drive down to take a look and the truck is sitting at a 45 degree angle in the ditch. When asked what happened she told me the Check Gauge light was on all day, then the Check Engine light came on and it wouldn't steer anymore. Well, the tow truck winched it out of the ditch and towed it to our house. Yep, gas tank was BONE dry and the gas gauge was lower than I've ever seen it. Good thing the ground was covered with vegetation and was soft and muddy - not a scratch on the truck and the alignment checked out fine. Yeesh.

It just ocurred to me that we were 2 and 0 on the rollover front last year. First the tractor, then the truck and no damage on either. Wow! We were lucky.

That's a good one Chief. You could say that women have evolved in the way they have because their "operation" of men has been so simple over the ages. They only have to pull up on the "ON knob."
