Why Men Don't Write Advice Columns        Man vs. Woman  /  Back Home

Thanks to Mary Lou for Sending this one!

Dear Walter at the advice desk:
  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 gone more
  than a mile down the road when my 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 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 married for twelve years.
  When I confronted him, he tried to make out that he had dressed in my
  lingerie because he couldn't find his own underwear. But when I asked
  him about the make up, he broke down and admitted that he'd been
  wearing my clothes for six months. I told him to stop or I would leave
  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. I don't feel I can get through to him anymore. Can you please
  help? Sincerely, Mrs. Sheila Lusk
  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 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 carburetor float
  chamber. I hope this helps.
