Default My wife just busted me

For years I have been telling my wife when I wanted to get out of doing something that I had to mix up a new batch of 2 cycle gas for all the lawn equipment. Now I have to admit I have led her to believe that this was a very complicated process,it could take a long long time. So tonight she says I want to watch you so I know how to do it. Shit, can you believe it , all I had on hand was those little one mix packets that you mix with 1 gallon of gas. So she watches me squeeze the pack of oil in the gas can, all the while I keep looking at the oil pack like it was absolutely critical that I did not make a mistake. Then she says that's it, that's all you have to do? I then tell her that no you have to add exactly 1 gallon of gas or all hell could break loose. Can you imagine she refused to go away at this point. Then all I could think to tell her is we now have to do a specific gravity test to make sure that all is right. She still refuses to leave at this point. I just happen to look at my tool box and see an antifreeze tester right on top. I thought about taking it the next level at this point, but hated to wreck the tester.

What would you have done?

I'm anxiously awaiting the REST of the story...or her final reaction....and ensuing fallout

For the record.... I would have pulled out the antifreeze test and run with it. Would be a great laugh if you ever saw her actually "testing" the mixed fuel

Too bad you didn't have a stethoscope laying around or something equally crazy! Honey, I have to listen to make sure the molecules mixed properly!

I did spill one drop of oil on the garage floor, I immediately ran to the blue oil soaker cloth to insure her the dogs paws would not get contaminated. However she was not impressed at this point. Even after a few Meyers Rum and Cokes

This makes me laugh...if the wives only knew about all the "complicated" processes we have to complete

I'm sure my wife will read this in the next day or two....so I'm busted also....but feeling your pain

Don't forget the high tech shaker bottle and the precision screened funnel.

So go ahead and post a picture of your wound. What is it? A black eye? A cut from whatever was nearby? Just a red mark? Let's see it.

It certainly has, just think she probably knew how to mix oil and gas but "allowed" you to cut the lawn for thirty years. That is one smart woman!
