Just started the "I go or the Jeep goes" fight

She's been complaining, because it seems like everyday I have a new project for the Jeep. Yesterday, it broke into an all out fight (throwing stuff, slamming doors, etc.) I know I've read some other posts here about other guys going through this crap. Any opinions?

It does not matter who started the fight.


What matters is do you have a comfortable place to sleep in the garage?

I've said before, and I'll say it again!

Chicks are like buses, another one will be along in 5 minutes!

On the other hand, good condition YJ's are pretty hard to find! Especially the coveted '95 model!

Hate when this happens...

My ex GF started to complain about it at the end, "you spend all Sunday working on your Jeep and I get to watch movies alone"

They should find a hobby too.

Wow, I guess I consider myself lucky. My girlfriend encourages me to work on the Jeep because she likes offroading (and wants one of her own someday).

Your girl needs to understand that the Jeep isn't just a vehicle to you, its your hobby. And you don't expect her to quit her hobbies.
