Memories...

"Who's the U-Boat Commander?"

As part of a mid-life crisis a few years back, Dr. Pissy bought a Porsche. This is not an uncommon event in males. His wife wasn't exactly thrilled about it (also not uncommon).

About a year later, she went out of town for 2 weeks to visit family. Pissy stayed here.

And did something his wife would never have allowed: entered himself in a local Porsche club's monthly race at the Grumpyville Speedway. He'd always wanted to do that, and he figured that, like a wild teenager, this was the best weekend to do it.

He had a lot of fun until the 4th lap of the 3rd race... when he blew up the engine to the tune of several thousand dollars. The car was towed off to DeutschenSprockets repair shop.

Then the fun began. Like Joel Goodson, Pissy had to have the Porsche working again before the authorities returned home. So each office day involved him calling the repair place - several times - to frantically check on how things were going. He paid extra to have the work expedited over other owners. At one point, when a certain part would take 3 days to have shipped, he called the distributor himself to arrange (and pay more for) overnight delivery.

He got the car back a few hours before her flight landed, and even took it to pick her up from the airport. On the way home they ordered take-out, and he went into the restaurant to get their order.

She looked for her sunglasses in the glove compartment, and found the repair bill.

Maybe he could raise the money by hosting a party with a bunch of hookers at his house.

@Anonymous -

Most likely the Porsche is running just fine - except it still can't be backed out of where she parked it.

stay safe.

So, did he retain any visiting rights for the Porsche after that?

Ms. Donna said...

Oh my. Grumpy, I now have to see a general surgeon -- I ruptured something laughing. Where should I send the bill?

Does it now have a sunroof? Because she hit the roof so hard she went right on through?

Kind of like when I found my kids tattoo aftercare instructions in his car , and pointed them out to his mother.

I have to assume Dr. Pissy has his own separate bank account, or that he is exclusively in charge of their finances.

Because I'm not sure how else he planned to hide the fact that there was suddenly a lot less money in the bank account.

I would venture Mrs. Pissy saw this coming...

Her: so , dear, I know you deserve a homecooked meal after your week of sacrifice with house, kids, pets...

him: on NO.. I think we should eat out every night for the next month. I just realized how much effort you do go to in taking care of me and your family...

Her: are you SURE

Him: yes, oh heck yes....
Her; okay...fi your sure...

replay 4-5 times , not even close check mate (queen wins!) until visa bill comes in... and then she can hit "pseudo explode"

This sounds like a couple of people I know. Just don't hide things from the spouse. It does not do well in the long run.

A car is a cheaper mid life crisis than a mistress.

So close. I imagine he probably won't hear the end of that until he is safely tucked into his grave
