    Is it just me.....or if your spouse/significant other see's you washing your truck they want you to wash or "help" them clean theirs? Just curious if anyone else has witnessed this. Don't get me wrong I enjoy helping my wife wash her car, just would be nice to get the same help in return.

    I love washing my truck, it's my "me time" and it's probably a good thing my wife doesn't help me b/c I'm OCD and she won't clean it to my standards

    I washed her car every weekend before we split up.

    The new girl washes my truck, apparently I've been missing out all this time.

    Keeping Mrs. Executive's car clean and detailed regularly helps keep me in the big bed.

    Yup, oh I would let her wash it but I would be right there saying "hey you missed a spot!" and that wouldn't go over well with the wife

    She has her own house, blonde, buys me beer, does certain things with her mouth out of this world, and she drives a lifted truck on 35's.

    Does life get any better?
