Default I've got a great wife

Yesterday morning she asks if I want to go to the mall with her. We need a new coffee pot and she wants to start some early Christmas shopping. Normally, I don't go near the mall but I had nothing planned and the weather was crappy so I said why not.

We live 20 miles from town and on our way, I see a pickup truck parked on the side of the road with a for sale sign on it. I know the guy that owns the property so I pull in to see what it is. (After asking if she would mind.) Cute little 2003 Ranger XLT with only 60,000 miles Priced 1800 under book. Wife says, why don't you buy it, your truck is a piece of shit.




She has always handled the money and paid all the bills. I have no idea how much we have in the bank or what we owe, I was gone most of the time I was in the Navy so she took care of everything. We go to the Credit Union and they tell me my Credit score is 813, write me a check and I'm driving my new truck home in less than two hours.

If I had been paying the bills all these years I'd be sitting on the sidewalk out front of the local 7-11 with a brown paper bag and gold paint all over my face.

Thank you My Love.

So now I'm the proud owner of a 2003 XLT, 4.0, 5 speed Auto. It has the MP3 player so I spent last night making up a few Road Tunes.

Still need a new coffee pot.
