Why Men Don't Write Advice Columns

If I knew who to credit for the content below, I absolutely would. It's an example of why men don't write advice columns. Personally, I'm not sure why anyone writes an advice column that does not consist solely of the reply: "What is wrong with you? Why can't you figure this out on your own?" I always secretly hope that the majority of the letters that are published are just made up by the "advice columnist" because otherwise it would mean that there are a lot of people out there that really lack the ability to noodle through the blatantly obvious. Duh.

Anyway, real or not, male or female, this is why we may or may not be asking women for advice instead of men. I'm sure you'll agree.

Dear Walter,

I hope you can help me here. The other day, I set off for work leaving my husband in the house watching the TV as usual. I hadn't driven more than a mile down the road when the engine conked out and the car shuddered to a halt.

I walked back home to get my husband's help. When I got home I couldn't believe my eyes. He was in our bedroom with the neighbors daughter. I am 32, my husband is 34, and the neighbor's daughter is 22. We have been married for ten years. When I confronted him, he broke down and admitted that they had been having an affair for the past six months. I told him to stop or I would leave him. He was let go from his job six months ago and he says he has been feeling increasingly depressed and worthless. I love him very much, but ever since I gave him the ultimatum he has become increasingly distant. He won't go to counseling and I'm afraid I can't get through to him anymore. Can you please help?



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.
