Why men should not write advice columns

Find out why men should not write advice columns, especially when answering relationship questions, in this week’s Friday Funnies.

Dear John,

I hope you can help me. The other day I set off for work leaving my husband in the lounge watching TV. My car stalled and about a mile from home it broke down, so I had to walk back to get my husband's help. When I got home I could not believe my eyes. He was in our bedroom with the neighbour's daughter.

I am 32, my husband is 34 and the neighbour's daughter is 19. We have been married for 10 years. When I confronted him he broke down and admitted they had been having an affair for six months and I'm afraid I'm at my wit's end. Can you please help me?

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 earth leads. If none of these approaches solve the problem it could be that the fuel pump itself is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the injectors. I hope this helps.

Sincerely, John

    There is a lot more that could be wrong with Sheila's car John. Have you considered a flat battery, no fuel in the tank, a faulty alternator, a seized engine, an empty radiator, a broken gearbox, etc.
    Is it any wonder that men like John should not write advice columns!

    Perhaps time to change both car and spouse.
