Letter Of the day

Letter of the day
So I ask you. Modern press for the win?

 Dear Miriam,

Theother day I set off for work, leaving my husband in the house watching the TV as usual.

I hadn’t gone a hundred yards down the road when my engine conked out and the car juddered to a halt.  I walked back home to get my husband’s help.  When I got home I found him in the bedroom.  I couldn’t believe my eyes.  He was parading in front of the wardrobe mirror dressed in my underwear and high heel shoes, and he was wearing my make up.
I am 32, my husband is 34 and we have been maried for 12 years.  WHen I confronted him, he tried to make out that he had dressed up in my lingerie because couldn’t find any of his own underwear.  But when I asked him about the make up, he broke down and admitted that he had been wearing my cloths for six months.  I told him it had to stop, or I would leave him.
He was made redundant 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 have him the ultimatum, he has become increasingly distant, and I dont’ feel I can get through to him any more.  Please can you help?

–Mrs B, Essex

Miriam says... A car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused by a variety of faults in the engine.  Start by checking that there is no debris in the fuel line.  If it is clearn, check the jubilee clips holding the vacuum pipes onto the inlet manifold. If none of these approaches solves the problem, it could be that the fuel pump itself is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the carburettor float chamber.

    So much for that lady “caring” about other people’s problems.


    This is amazing. Is it real?


    Whatever it is, blame the jubilee clips.

    Damn, I was just about to post this when I saw it in the queue. cool


    No, it’s from a newspaper in GB I think like the Onion. It’s a great way to see who is homophobic.

    It’s actually from Viz. It’s a parody of the problem page in The Sun.


    LOL! This sounds like something I’d say to my wife after one of her sessions of whining to me…J/K!
    Actually, when your car stalls shortly after starting it, you should check the blinker fluid or the muffler belt. 🙂
