I hear ya there. I was ranting a while back about some of the patch-its I have to do with my baby because I can't afford new parts. Once I graduate tho
Wondered why they installed the parts cleaner in the kitchen. You say it does dishes too?It will also make them more forgiving of the occasional marital mis-step like using the dishwasher as a parts cleaner.:rollingpin:
I'd like to, trust me. But we get buy (a family of three) on less than $30,000 a year. It's EXTREMELY hard. I know you're just busting my chops a little, which is cool. But I figured I'd go ahead and throw the real reason out there that we drive these old buggies like we do.Ratmonster.....you allow your wife to drive something like that?
Maybe it's time to step up and show her some love by getting her a real nice vehicle.
You'll love her more too when she's gaining new respect in the neighborhood. You'll see a bigger smile on her face, cleaner laundry, love notes packed into your lunchbox, a nice steak dinner laid out for you.
Come on, get a shiny paint, no busted parts automobile for the girl you love!
I hear that. Times are tough. Whatever you can do the keep those puppies running man. The polish and paint is nice if it can happen but as long as its reliable, that's a win in my bookratmonster said:I'd like to, trust me.

If anyone would like to donate a slightly nicer used car my way, I'd accept it with humble appreciation! Outside of that, it's just gonna have to wait until... I dunno... a miracle???
Scirocco is a great car to drive. I had one to use for about 2 weeks to drive in the course of my business back in the late 80's.ratmonster said:You guys are alright, you know that? :yup:
We'll get there one day. I'd love to get her to drive my car at least once, then she'd fall in love and have something pretty to drive. I don't really care if I drive the ugliest thing in my state, as long as I can manage to have a little fun with it. I'd like her to have nicer wheels. She's a great lady, she's put up with my triflin' butt for over 15 years... yeah, she deserves better. But like I said, we'll get there! Her dream car is a Scirocco, and I was willing to put my hearse dreams on hold to find her one, but I couldn't find one in good shape and running in my budget. Hopefully in the future.
