    I came home last night and garage door would not open. After trying to open front door of the house, I realized the security chain was still in place, but my wife had stepped out to the store. After I smashed the front door open (security chain is worthless, btw!) I went into the garage to see why the garage overhead door wont open. Torsion spring was broken, damn, so there's 250.00 to fix. Then I notice that my Delta 12.5 in. planner ( mounted on a stand) is lying on the floor in a crumpled mess with a note stuck to it from my wife. I never read the note because I could kinda guess what happened. She ran over my lawn mower last year in a similar incident while backing out of the garage. She suggested it fell on her car all by itself overnight, then fell over when she backed out. After some investigative probing on my part, she admitted guilt of being a horrible driver and knocking it over. Its toast with obsolete screw jacks bent, so I need to take advantage of a "freebie" kitchen pass I can receive for this.

    I tried to revoke her garage parking priviliges, but that idea did not go well with her. All I can do is use her guilt to my advantage and get myself something that would normally piss her off. I would like another Glock.....

    Don't feel bad my wife does the same. Why the eff she needs to turn the wheel in the garage is way beyond me, but apparently it's necessary. :annoyed: It's a small garage, we don't have room to be doing figure eights in this bitch LOL

    Ya know those tire guides in the car washes?

    Maybe time to roto hammer down a pair of those, you could also put a stop at the end so she doesn't take out the back of the garage and if nothing else it gives you a legitimate reason to buy a new Roto Hammer
