    Default So you think your wife is hard on stuff?

    The wife and I took off work a little early on Friday to get the lawn mowed before the weekend. I was almost finished with my side when she comes up to me and says shes pretty much done and she was going into town to pick up the kids....and "oh ya - the mower is making a funny noise - I think something is rubbing"

    Nicely done. How did she manage to break the frame?

    I'll never know. In her defense, it was probably a long time in the making as some of the cracked frame had rust on it so it had been broke for some time. But - when that mower is running its full throttle and going as fast as it will go

    My wife drives her car like that - if it will still go forward, she will. If I don't take it for an inspection ride and check the oil every week or so, she will kill it before she tells me anything is going wrong with it. " Oh that noise? It's been happening for a week or so. Is that bad?" She has burned up 2 engines so far.

    That was a good save on the mower.

    I'm thinkin' it might be easier to mow the whole thing yourself... "No thanks, Hon, I like to mow..."
