Yep, she sees how many miles that she can run on a tank, and lets me use her car with the fuel light lit up when I start it. She once complained that I was getting gas, when there "Is obviously another 50 miles in the tank" !

I fill up at 1/4 tank, and sometimes sooner.

I grew up away from urban life.

I have the same problem.

I flat out do not back the big cat into parking spots. I'll make attempts from the 944 or Corvette.

The nice thing about the 944 is compared in size to modern cars, it is small enough tat even badly parked there is still plenty of room on both sides.

Well, at least a small car is easier to push.

WHY did she

The females of our species are responding to and are driven by an enterily different set of stimuli and motives than the males. We males when interacting with females are equivlent to three dementional beings living in a 11 demential world and being asked to point in the direction off the 5th dimension. We can't do it! Females and males are in reality different species.

Why does she...
Feel that it's perfectly OK to just start chit-chatting with me no matter what else I might be doing at the time...reading, watching a movie, or concentrating on some task at hand? And if I try to say that I'm busy right now, I get the "Why should that be more important than me?" routine.

My wife did that when we first married but I broke her of it.

I asked her what she was going to do when the big one hit and she was stranded somewhere because she was out of gas and none of the stations were operating?

Now she rarely gets under 1/4 tank.

Mine too! I can be walking from the bathroom back toward the garage at high speed and as I go by she starts a conversation as if I'm sitting next to her on the couch. I have to throw on the brakes and say "what honey".

That she did. That she did. Not on my reading list.

WHY DOES SHE

When asked about “what do you want to eat?”
(Yes it’s a classic)


Text a list of the 20 restaurants we always go to

One restaurant per text

And then Say “or something new!!!!!”

WHY DOES SHE -
Not question me when I drop another grand on the P-car ?

I think she does in on purpose to drive me crazy. It's working.
