I saw this and it made me laugh.

Here is an example from the advice column "Dear John":




Dear John:


I hope you can help me. The other day I set off for work, leaving my husband in the house watching TV. My car stalled and then it broke down about a mile down the road so I had to walk back to get my husband's help.



When I got home, I could not believe my eyes; he was in our bedroom with the neighbor's 20-year-old daughter. I am 32 and my husband is 34. We have been married for ten years. When I confronted him, he broke down and admitted they'd been having an affair for the past six months. He won't go to counseling and I'm afraid I am a wreck and need advice urgently. Can you help me please?

Sincerely, Sheila



He writes:



Dear Sheila,


a car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused by a variety of faults. Start by checking that there is no debris in the fuel line. If it is clear, check the vacuum pipe and the hoses on the intake manifold and also check all grounding wires. If none of these approaches solves the problem, it could be the fuel pump.

I hope this helps,

John
