My husband is a great guy. But it drives me nuts when I tell him something is wrong with the car and try to explain it then show it to him. He thinks I'm imagining it or pilot error...because the car behaves PERFECTLY for him...wouldn't dare consider acting up in front of him.
Now, that said, I will say he is not the least bit fond of computers or modern technology. When it comes to motors he's the King, master-tech and all. Technology, not so much. He's fighting it, kicking and screaming all the way.
For Christmas I got him a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. A motorhead to the core, he loves reading and staying up on all things motor related. Seriously, there is nothing the man can't fix. In 33 years, we've never had to take a vehicle in for a repair.
Saturday we had to go get our taxes done...it wasn't purty. Then went to the local Home Depot to get some lumber so we can extend a wall in the kitchen. We got home only to find he'd needed to rip the 2 x 6 x 12's. Note to non-wood working folks, "ripping" is what you do to shave the length of the stud if it's too wide. He decided to look online for the best blade to do said ripping.
Only when he put "How to properly rip a stud" in the search engine it came up with nothing but porn sites.
I'm still laughing. I won't soon forget his wide-eye shocked expression, mouth hanging open, or the WTF moment when he realized his perfectly innocent question took him to a multitude of internet porn sites.
It's fun when something that would normally happen to me happens to him...I just love Karma. How about you?
