    Since buying her a 3.5 w209 clk my wife has persistantly been hitting the kerbs.

    I have told her about it and she insists she is a good driver .

    I got a call to say she had a flat instantly after hitting a kerb and was stuck.. Of course a new tyre was needed which cost £175.

    Using female logic she insisits that she is a good driver .

    How do you not see a kerb in daylight.

    Hmm. A difficult one. How do you tactfully suggest that the evidence in front of you points to the contrary?

    Why do men die before their wives?
    They want to

    What is the difference between a car battery and a woman?
    A battery has a positive side.

    Well simply put if she's such a good driver then she wouldn't mind paying for the tyres that she deflates in this manner.

    She'll soon learn.

    She could not have been putting her makeup on as there is not enough room in the car for the scaffolding that she needs when doing it.

    I cant stop her housekeeping as I dont give her any.. I just pay bills etc.
