I picked up a small LT and a cart for my wife to use a couple of years ago. Today I happened to check the oil in the engine. Barely touching the end of the stick. I pointed this out but of course it was my fault. Lesson learned: she will not take care of the routine checks. Check her machines oil. Good Luck, Rick

Yep sounds about right, I get same thing with the wife's jeep....my job to check fluids,  tire pressure, etc.

So then why am I the only one that can clean the bathtub and mop all the floors... :mad2:  :wallbanging:

At least mine takes care of her Jeep.

Everything else however, ( Seadoo, Bicycle, Quad, Dirtbike, 65 T-Bird), is my problem.

Well at least she keeps the kitchen clean, and walks the dog.

Yup, pretty much turns out to be our job. I remember the "love, honour" part of the ceremony, but the " check all fluid levels" part eluded me, I should have been paying more attention,  lol!

Man, I wish you'd asked first. Several of us would've been able to tell you in advance how wrong you were and saved her the trouble and you the dressing down by the wife.

My wife loves dogs and they love her. What kind of dog is that in your pic? Almost looks like a Newfie. We had Newfies for 20 years but our area has Lymes disease very bad and it killed all three of them. I haven't the heart to get another. It also crippled a boy down the road. Good Luck, Rick

Actually the critter in my pic is a goat named Voldemort.

 

My current dog is a Collie, Husky cross we rescued.
