Dr. Evolutionary Biology sez ...

“Women are looking for resources and excitement. A 38 year old single father with three kids offers neither.”
There's more - so much more, including words of wisdom from the Irish Advice Columnist. Top shelf snark, right there.

I'm thinking we could have one or both of you guys, like JayB and yourself write an advice column.

"ASK Jay and Borepatch"

Dear J & B, I hope you can help me here. The other day, I set off for work leaving my husband in the house watching the TV as usual. I
hadn't driven more than a mile down the road when the engine conked out and the car shuddered to a halt. I walked back home to get my husband's help.

When I got home I couldn't believe my eyes. He was in our bedroom with
the neighbors daughter. I am 42, my husband is 44, and the neighbor's daughter is 22. We have been married for fifteen years. When I confronted him, he broke down and admitted that they had 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

Can you please help?

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 is 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.

Well! I understand that poor woman's plight myself. I've been there. I was leaning towards a vacuum problem or fuel starvation
myself. The poor woman, I don't envy her at all - I had a very similar problem with my pick-up and it drove me nuts.

Lucky for her that she wasn't far from home and had two people to help push it back! - Brigid

Oh Dear Lord ...

I also would have added a bit about which parts you can fix with Duct tape ...

And I'd ask for pictures of the neighbor's daughter...
