Default getting the wife out of the car

This is a bit tongue in cheek, but here goes. Does anyone else have the same problem as I do getting the wife out of the car even long enough to do routine maintenance? I was hoping to get an oil and filter change done this weekend, but no she and her daughter had major shopping to get done. And forget anything that might take a day or so, the front bumper needs repainted, I could remove it and work on it at my leisure, but no she won't drive it that way. Oh well, like they say, a happy wife is a happy life.

Pick a day to do stuff that a lot of good stuff she likes comes on TV, or find something fun for her to do around the house.
Or you could just unplug the fuel pump relay, or ICM, then tell her you will have to work on it to find out what is wrong with it.

Good idea on the fuel pump relay William, "oh gosh honey, something must have gone awry when I was cleaning under the rear seat" lol

Sounds like a good solution if you ask me.
