Why Men Don't Write ADvice Columns, Now We Know


Dear Mike,
I hope you can help me here. The other day, I set off for work leaving my husband in the house watching the TV as usual. I hadn't driven more than a mile down the road when the engine conked out and the car shuddered to a halt. I walked back home to get my husband's help.

When I got home I couldn't believe my eyes. He was in our bedroom with the neighbors daughter. I am 32, my husband is 34, and the neighbor's daughter is 22. We have been married for ten years. When I confronted him, he broke down and admitted that they had been having an affair for the past six months. I told him to stop or I would leave him.

He was let go from his job six months ago and he says he has been feeling increasingly depressed and worthless. I love him very much, but ever since I gave him the ultimatum he has become increasingly distant. He won't go to counseling and I'm afraid I can't get through to him anymore..

Can you please help?




Dear Sheila:

A car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused by a variety of faults with the engine. Start by checking that there is no debris in the fuel line. If it is clear, check the vacuum pipes and hoses on the intake manifold and also check all grounding wires. If none of these approaches solves the problem, it could be that the fuel pump itself is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the injectors.

I hope this helps,

Now that was funny. But you have to give him credit, he did solve the solvable problem.

I wasn't expecting that reply. I missed the previous post about the retarded grandparents. It really gave me a chuckle. We aren't retired yet, but are already retarded, before we get retired. Ha!

Have a good night, Patty.

My older son will be here Saturday, from Ohio, for a few days visit with granddaughter Mckenze. She has a couple of days off from school because of teachers meetings. So I have been busy getting ready. Now I'm beat and heading to bed to watch TV.
