    Default Women and tyre pressures !

    I was walking past my wifes Fiesta (which I rarely drive) today and noticed that the rear tyre looked flat. Checked them and found that it had 9 pounds of pressure in it.

    I asked her why she hadn't told me it was handling badly and she didn't know what I was on about. Apparantly, it's my job to check her tyres. I give up.

    Mine has never put petrol in any of our cars in over twenty years.

    Would not even know how to put air in - knows plenty about letting air out though!

    I asked her to fill our new lawnmower up with petrol once. She filled it with engine oil - brand new mower, smoking like hell and she said that the mower was rubbish and it would not work! Women!

    She does look after me though!

    Ditto Capriman. I was sat at home while back and heard a thumping noise coming down the road, that stopped outside our house. Wife came in and said her car 'felt funny'. Went outside and found the o/s front wheel with the remains of a tyre on it and the rim nearly square. She driven on a flat tyre and didn't realise.

    Had to but a new wheel and tyre. But she has her compensations.
