Default "Transmission Jar"

Had to share this:

I've been driving my wife nuts whining about my car being in the transmission shop. She finally got pissed off and started a "transmission jar". I have to put $1 into the jar every time she hears me complain about missing my car.

We're up to $11 already.

Tranny guy says Friday now. :( Wants extra time to test and tune and make sure everything is the way I want it.

Oh, the money is hers. It wouldn't have any bite if it were going to me.

LOL!!

From the sound of things, by Friday she'll have enough for a pretty good shopping spree.

Hey, I know....

We'll start a whining jar for you here at BC too! That way you can help finance the next national meet! Pretty good idea huh?
