Anybody else familiar with this guy, Scotty Kilmer. He has 2,700 YouTube videos on vehicles. He was a mechanic for 40 years and he's been recording videos since 2007. He's my go-to guy, he knows what he's talking about. He makes $2 mil a year off his YouTube channel.

When I have ran out of gas when traveling long distance it wasn't due to not filling it or trying to be daring it was being in a situation where there weren't any gas stations once we noticed there could be a problem. One time It actually not my fault since I was sleeping at the time we had the last best optetunity to get gas.

Feel free to tell me what kind of person you think I am regarding this no suspension. FYI, my Wife still lives with me...

Oh snap. Is your refrigerator running?

People who run out of gas or almost run out of gas as a regular thing always have a buttload of reasons for it. When my business partner ran out on the Golden Gate Bridge he grabbed the steering wheel started whining over and over I'm going to die, I'm going to die, I'm going to die. Not giving one crap that he put my life in just as much danger as he put his. That's why the rescue guy was so angry, because he put all of us In harms way. The Golden Gate often has visibility issues and people have been killed on it who ran out of gas. The rescue guy charged him $10 for the two gallons and my partner whined all the way home about it. The guy saved us and my partner was worried about his life, got saved, and then complained about how much it cost. What kind of a person does this sound like to you.

Not sure but, my dishwasher seems to be working well.

If my worst sin regarding my Wife is running us out of gas a few times, I'm probably doing ok. She hasn't lorded it over me.

Ocassianlly she still brings up the fact that after we first started dating that I got a girl's Phone number. And I gave some other girl her drink that I ordered for her.

She was the one that dared me saying I couldn't get a particular girl's number. Sure, it may have been a test to see if I would, or perhaps she wanted to know if that chick was into me, but she knew better than to dare me.

In the other situation, a girl I knew ordered the same thing as I was getting for my wife(not my wife at the time, I don't even think we were exclusive at the time), as the bartender sat mine down, I simply told the other girl to take that one and I would reorder since they were free to me. She just happened to walk up as this was all going down. She wasn't too happy about it. 🤷‍♂️

No, you really are not doing okay because somebody actually has to explain this to you. You've run out of gas more than once and had to leave your wife in the car, unprotected, while you hitchhiked somewhere to get more gas. You have no idea what kind of area you're going to be in when you run out of gas. You could say yeah, it was the interstate, it was safe. Really? When I had to go to Chicago on a run when I had the cab company the dispatcher would always remind me to make sure I had lots of gas because running out of gas on the freeway in many places in Chicago was a death sentence. When you get back to it your car is going to be stripped of everything and if your wife was in it what do you think would have happened to her. When somebody acts like that, has that kind of behavior, what's it called. I don't want to say it because we have hair trigger mods here now and I have no idea what's considered a personal insult these days.
