Default Uh O - Wife's mad at me

Decided to drain the oil in my outdrive and work on it.....in our basement.

I know that oil stinks but never thought the smell would go up into the first floor

Oh, man... used gear oil is horrible. You can't get that smell off your hands. Switch to synthetic, it isn't as bad.

My wife hates it when I come into the house with gear oil on my hands. I can imagine yours is even more upset.

Tri-Chlor or gasoline for clean-up - the tri-chlor and gas smell will dissipate faster.

As for the wife - just give her the 'ol Keilbasa and she will be grateful.

I didn't realize the synthetic smells less - I think I use a blend.

It definitely has a sick smell to it. Now go cook some collard greens to cover it with another bad smell! LOL

Thanks guys. I still have to go back down and put it back together (drinking a beer or two first). The oil was already drained so there wasn't much left just some in the upper drive when I took the drive shaft assembly off. The smell sure dissipates outdoors better than indoors.

I never knew the synthetic was less smelly either. I think I will use it when I refill.

After eating that colon blow he can go all in and stop using the exhaust fan in the downstairs bathroom. Not only will that mask the smell, he will run her upstairs so he watch the football games in peace.

This is reminding me of the time I trimmed the Christmas with the chainsaw in the house. Wood chips for the entire length of the house and a stink with a headache.

Don't start the engine down there or the gear lube smell will be small potatoes.

Here is my advice:
Explain to your lovely bride that you are the master of the house and you will do as you damn well please.
then go on to ad that if were'nt for you she would be living on the streets by now. then ask her when's your dinner going to be ready because you need to be a good husband and take her younger sister out later tonite.
Finally remind her its not feminin to fight not to mention its very un lady like.

You pull this off and you will be theeeeee MAN

Time to put a down payment on that bigger house she wants....
Blame it on the stuff you put down to kill a rat that got in.

Nah, you aren't the MAN until she catches you pissing on her indoor plants when you decide watching the end of the game is more important than walking to the bathroom.

What's that after she's gotten you a dozen or so cold beers from the frig in between rubbing your feet and back?

My approach on that one Kent, I just say, "o-well, I'll know better next time......life goes on, do you want to go out for dinner"?

I occasionally have to remind the Misses, that "I" live here too!

Come on guys think out of the box. You've got to turn it around on them. Tell her she must have hit something with the car as it is leaking oil all over the place.

Don't yell at her for her dumb mistake and then she owes you one!
