View Full Version : If you need a good laugh...

So, after supper, my DH asks me if I want to go along with him so he can fill up with gas... the store is 5 min away, and 2 minutes from the house I hear... " OH S@#$!" The van slows right down to a crawl... we are out of gas. Me, expecting him to pull over immediatly... was in for a real shock. He swerves the motor vehicle across the road, into a FIELD!!!!!!! I'm freaking out at this point, " WHAT ARE YOU DOING, PULL OVER FOR PETE'S SAKE!!!!!!" Well I'm sure you all know that devilish grin on a man's face when they are about to do something sooooooooooooooooooo well, guyish, and there we are bumping through this holey field, he gets to the highway, (at this point I am SURE that he is going to pull over because the gas station is just across the road) BUT NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! He smoothly just coasts across, *keep in mind that he can't gun it, as the van was hardly moving* cars coming BOTH ways, doesn't even take a deep breath...
At this point I'm debating wether to jump out and roll on the pavement and chance my death slowly, or get smucked by the oncoming cars and die quickly...
And guess what? He sails right on into the gas station by running on mere fumes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THE NERVE OF HIM!!!!!!!! And he's still laughing at me!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyone have a husband like this? I think he needs some serious help, or I need a therapist after tonight! :rofl2::25r30wi::biggrin8:
and :yesssmileyf: we made it out alive!!!!!!!!!! So hope you all have a great weekend. I survived. :rofl2:

LOL, I figured this story was good for a laugh.... According to DH, we never were in any danger. I beg to differ, I saw this going sour in so many different ways! LOL

OMG Jen, I am so glad there was a good outcome to this story. But its typical for a man :25r30wi::rofl2:

OK that was soooooooo funny!!!! I think most guys tend to do crazy things like that but yours is wow. At least your life is not boring :25r30wi:
Mine is pretty stable and safe, I would die if he did that to me.

ok.. so I would have been a widow cause I would have threw my DH out of the van.
of course I don't like having my DH drive.. which sucks cause women aren't allowed to drive in Saudi so I have to put up with his driving. Luckily he doesn't try any of those antics
16-05-2010, 09:03 PM
What? You can't drive??????????????? Oh boy! Well my driving skills are nothing to write home about, I am indeed a terrible driver, I never know where I'm going, my head is always up in the clouds and I get lost all the time. DH jokes about getting me a GPS! :wink3:

Well I can't drive when we are in Saudi Arabia, which is where I lived for several years, because women aren't legally allowed to drive. So we resort to having your husbands drive us around, hired drivers, taxis and even yes young male children. I have seen countless boys.. 11 yrs of age plopped up on pillows to drive their mothers. ugghh
anyway I can drive where I am now, Bahrain, and I'm the driver of the family. Mr. Man is slow.. turtle slow and it is like driving with a grandpa. He calls it safe I call it slow. I tend to drive a car.. and am a bit aggressive on the roads here (have to be) and can find a parking spot in a lot in no time unlike Mr. Man

Ann that is too funny! and that would be weird seeing youngsters like that driving!!!
Jen, had to laugh though, my DH does that a LOT, most of the time without me in the car thank goodness, but I have lost track of the times he has run out of gas and then just sailed into a petrol station!!! Me!!!? I just run out petrol, kaput, empty, do not pass go, just come to a halt!!! :glis:
17-05-2010, 02:13 PM
ha ha ha Ona, me, if I see the needle heading towards a mere quarter tank, I FLY to the gas station!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't handle being low on gas... pet peeve of mine!
