Why Australian men don’t write advice columns.

A friend forwarded this me to. Thought you might enjoy it too.


Dear Walter,

I hope you can help me. The other day, I set off for work leaving my
husband in the house watching the TV as usual. I hadn’t driven more than
a mile down the road when the 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 in our bedroom with the neighbours
daughter. I am 32, my husband is 34, and the neighbours daughter is 22.
We have been married for ten years.

When I confronted him, he broke down and admitted that they had been
having an affair for the past 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. He won’t go to counselling and I’m afraid I can’t get through
to him anymore.

Can you please help?

Sincerely, Sheila


Dear Sheila:

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 vacuum pipes and
hoses on the intake manifold and also check all grounding wires. If none
of these approaches solves the problem, it could be that the fuel pump
itself is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the injectors.

I hope this helps,
