Why men don't make good advise columnists
I saw this joke today and I had to repost it here. I felt it was somewhat fitting...

I hope you can help me here. The other day I set off for work leaving my
husband in the house watching the TV as usual. I hadn't gone more than a
few hundred yards down the road when my engine conked out and the car
shuddered to a halt. I walked back home to get my husband's help. When I
got home I couldn't believe my eyes. He was parading in front of the
wardrobe mirror dressed in my underwear and high-heel shoes, and he was
wearing my make-up. I am 32, my husband is 34 and we have been married
for twelve years. When I confronted him, he tried to make out that he
had dressed in my lingerie because he couldn't find his own underwear.
But when I asked him about the make-up, he broke down and admitted that
he'd been wearing my clothes for six months. I told him to stop or I
would leave him. He was let go from his job six months ago and he says
he has been feeling increasingly depressed and worthless. I love him
very much, but ever since I gave him the ultimatum he has become
increasingly distant. I don't feel I can get through to him anymore. Can
you please help?

A car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused by a
variety of faults with the engine. Start by checking that there is no
debris in the fuel line. If it is clear, check the jubilee clips holding
the vacuum pipes onto the inlet manifold. If none of these approaches
solves the problem, it could be that the fuel pump itself is faulty,
causing low delivery pressure to the carburetor float chamber.
I hope this helps.
