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.
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.
