I ran out to do some errands yesterday. I return to find that my wife has hung up some Xmas ornaments and decorative stuff. That's ok; less for me to do.

Then I see one of my torque wrenches on the kitchen counter. Huh?


highanddry: "Hon, why is my torque wrench in the kitchen?"

wife: "Oh, I dunno."

highanddry: "Whatta ya mean, 'I dunno'? It was in the garage when I left."

wife: "Well, I couldn't find a hammer, so I used the torquey-thingy."

highanddry: "I don't suppose you realize it's a sensitive, calibrated tool?"


I love my wife, I really do. But clearly, there are fundamental differences between men and women. Know what you're getting into before you enter the sanctity of marriage. There were no less than four hammers in the garage that she walked by before she found the torque wrench.

I dont think that all women are that tool stupid....no offensive to your wife what so ever, maybe i just know better then to grab mikes torque wrence to hammer crap into the wall. maybe you need to give her a lesson in tools 101.

I've been doing that since we met :D . I'm selective in which tool I use though 8) .

Back on topic though, my wife hates how much time I spend working on vehicles and engines. She's probably trying to ruin my tools on purpose.

then maybe that will teach you to manage your time a little better between her and the car. I know how that is though, we need just as much time as your car. and even someone like me who likes cars needs to have a freakn break from them.

Give me a break - I come here so I don't have to listen to comments (pronounced nagging) like that :lol: .

Well, she's seven and a half months pregnant, so you can take a guess at what's going on with the nookie. I'm already sanctioned...sort of. :cry:

Maybe the hormonal changes explain using the torque wrench as a hammer.

I'm gonna have to have a word with your husband. It's time you guys got a bun in the oven so he can enjoy being cut off too. Then he'll be on here venting at all the weird things his wife does when she looks like she swallowed a basketball. 8O
