Thought you guys would find this funny.

What can I say, I'm getting old. I just had a MAJOR stupid attack. Actuallypretty funny after I got over the embarassment. Not bragging, but my mechanical skills are pretty good, for example, I have replaced heads on a Jag V-12, restored cars from scratch, engine swaps and other things of that complexity. I was out showing my wife how to check her tranny fluid in her SD. Well hell, I went to pull out the dipstick, and couldn't get it out. I pushed it, pulled it , twisted it, as my face reddened. It's stuck, I said. I've done this many times. She gently nudged me aside pushed the lock back, pulled out the stick and graciously asked "how do you read this when the fluid runs off it so fast" ,lol. What a nice woman I have, hehhe, missing a golden chance to humiliate me..... gave me a wink, and a pat on the butt, instead. Must have been because it was Xmas eve.

No. She'll just use it as leverage on another occasion...She didn't miss the opportunity, she's saving it for a later date..

You need to start hanging out with different women. Not all of them are vindictive.

I did that... I swore at that bleeding little red cap until I was red in the face. then my hand slipped down and I felt the lock tab... Felt like a complete sh*#head after that. lucky tho, nobody was around to see.
