Men still don't listen

My wife just stopped and said, "you weren't even listening to me were you?"
I thought... "that's a pretty weird way to start a conversation."

(unsurprisingly, I'm not actually married)

One of my all time favorites:

Why men shouldn't write advice columns

Dear John,
I hope you can help me. The other day, I set off for work, leaving my husband in the house watching TV. My car stalled, and then it broke down about a mile down the road, and I had to walk back to get my husband's help. When I got home, I couldn't believe my eyes. He was in our bedroom with the neighbor's daughter!
I am 32, my husband is 34 and the neighbor's daughter is 19. We have been married for 10 years. When I confronted him, he broke down and admitted they had been having an affair for the past six months. He won't go to counseling, and I'm afraid I am a wreck and need advice urgently. Can you please help?
Sincerely, Sheila

Dear Sheila,
A car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused by a variety of faults with the engine. Start by checking that there is no debris in the fuel line. If it is clear, check the vacuum pipes and hoses on the intake manifold and also check all grounding wires. If none of these approaches solves the problem, it could be that the fuel pump itself is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the injectors.
I hope this helps.

Although it could be the fuel pump, I would suspect an ignition problem.

Dirty or loose ground.

I was thinking it was simply some bad fuel. Has the car been sitting awhile?
