My wife doesn't put gas in her car, I do. And I don't know why more husbands don't do his for their wives. Just keep an eye on their gas gauge and keep it full. That way they don't have to worry about it and potentially putting themselves in harm's way.

I honestly don't think my wife knows what that thing is anymore (gas gauge). I've asked her, for fun, if her car needs gas. She gets a dumbfounded look on her face and says, "maybe". Anyway, it's a nice gesture, if nothing else, for you husbands out there. Don't want them breaking those back scratching nails do ya? ;-)


No offense, Omaha, but I find that obsurd.

Yeah, why? I do that for my wife, too. Not all the time like Omaha, but pretty often.

It's a nice thing to do, and it's really easy.

Why NOT do this for your wife? :-?

I seems to me that you've taken something that is a relatively mundane and easy day-to-day task and turned it into something that is now, according to you, difficult for you wife to do. I'm all about doing nice things for my wife as well, but I don't want her to be dependent on me, just as I don't want to be dependent on her. There are certain things that I'm better at than my wife, most work involving our vehicles is one, and I do all of the work on our cars (at least the work that I'm capable of doing), but I wouldn't be as comfortable when she takes trips by herself if I didn't know that she can change a tire, put on chains, use jumper cables, change a battery, etc.

Also, I didn't mean to be so curt with my first post, and I'm not saying that what I do is right and what you do is wrong, just that it is so foreign to me that it seems obsurd.

Fair enough. My wife knows how to put gas into her car, she used to do it. She also knows how to open doors, mow a lawn, plunge a toilet, hammer a nail, rake leaves, etc. Doesn't mean she does it. I know how to vacuum and do the dishes, but I don't do those either.

And, for the record, I am very dependant on my wife, as she is of me as well. ;-D

Yeah, that's how I feel as well. There's absolutely nothing wrong with being considerate, but being overprotective can actually cause more harm than good. Seems awfully naive to me.

If he had Firefox, it would have underlined it :-b

I know, I know Madison, you don't use FF, but not everyone is the spelling champ you are. Except me, I won second place in my 5th grade spelling bee. I lost to an Asian kid, so that's understandable... I am a smart, S-M-R-T :-D B-)

I don't think 'overprotective' is an accurate description. It's me wanting to do something nice for my wife. She doesn't have to keep an eye on the gas gauge. Simple as that. She doesn't have to get out of the car, in the cold, mess with a greasy pump, deal with some of these people at the stations, etc., etc. I'm curious why this is so absurd. As far as overprotective, I certainly am not. She goes out to concerts and things with her friends (she's going to Nickelback/Three Days Grace/Breaking Benjamins Wednesday) while I stay at home with the kid, so overprotective I am not. Attentive, I am. And I am not suggesting that a husband who doesn't do this is not attentive. I was just pointing out that it's something nice to do for your wife, something husbands may not always think of.
