Why Men Make Poor Advice Columnists

car-breakdown.jpgDear Pete,
I've been reading your advice column for weeks, and I hope you can help me.

The other day, I set off for work leaving my husband in the house watching TV as usual. I hadn't driven more than a mile down the road when the engine died and the car shuddered to a halt.

I walked back home to get my husband's help. When I got there, I couldn't believe my eyes -- my husband was in our bed with the neighbours’ daughter.

We’ve been married for ten years. I’m 32, my husband is 34, and the neighbours’ daughter is 22.  When I confronted him, he broke down and admitted that they’d 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.

What should I do?

Sincerely, Sheila

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's 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.?

  4. A dog's parents never visit.

  8. Dogs like to go hunting and fishing.
  9. A dog will not wake you up at night to ask, "If I died, would you get another dog?"

  11. A dog will let you put a studded collar on it without calling you a pervert.
  12. If a dog smells another dog on you, they don't get mad. They just think it's interesting.

Then suddenly she burst out crying...
