    I need some advice on what could be a life changing decision.

    I've suspected for some time now that my girlfriend has been having an affair. The usual signs. Phone rings, I answer, someone hangs up.
    She started going out 'with the girls' a lot recently although when I ask which girls it is always "Just some friends from work, you don't know them".
    I always look out for her taxi coming home but she always walks down the drive although I can hear a car setting off. As if she has got out of the car round the corner. Why? Is it not a taxi?
    I once picked her mobile up just to see what time it was and she went beserk and screamed that I should never touch her phone again and why was I checking up on her.

    Anyway, I have never approached the subject with my g/f. I think deep downI just didn't want to know the truth but last night she went out again and I decided to check on her.
    I decided I was going to hide behind my car which would give me a veiw of the whole street so I could see which car she gets out of. It was whilst crouched behind my car that I noticed rust around my rear wheel arch.

    Should I take it into a body repair shop or should I buy some stuff from Halfords and try to repair it myself?

    get rid of the car, even a body shop can't fix rust in that area.....repairing it yourself won't work.

    Get rid of the girl, stuff her in the trunk, then toss it over a cliff.

    Life will be perfect.

  9. I agree get rid off the car and buy a new one
    As for your g/f don't worry about her concentrate on your life
    If I was you I'd spend alot've time on my instrument and if your got other commitments just make sure you leave a bit of time for R'N'R
    By doing things for yourself will
    a) Make you have great self-estem
    b) Become confident ( chicks just love this part )
    c) Your progress as a musician grows as time flys by
    And if she doesn't change after a few months tell her
    BABY YOU CAN GO OUT AS MUCH AS YOU LIKE PERMANTLEY
    Woman aye
    Don't worry pal I've been there now the only problem is will be trying to get her to get off your back when she starts :bawl:

    Heh....Someone needs to get the hook out of Jace's mouth, too--he doesn't even know he's taken the bait, yet. :D
     
  12. Hee hee hee, that makes me feel better about falling for it in the 1st place. :smug:
     
  13. Wait, this is about fishing? I thought it was about chicks and cars...













    :cool:
     
  14. True
    Okay what about ditch the girl ditch the car and go fishing :D
    You know what they say plenty of fishy's in the sea :D
     
  15. Jace, I don't mean to come off like a knob, but...

    You're going about this all wrong. EVERYONE knows the first thing to do is to deny everything and make counter accusations.

    For example: Edit your first post to say something like "Who are you trying to fool, Fool." (add a picture of Mr. T. for effect) Then your second post should be chastising bassmonkee for "editing" your post in his quote.

    Deny everything, make counter accusations...

  19. True my first post was a bit like MR T my apologies
    I guess I just got carried away by having the same experience
    As for my second post I didn't mean it as a way of chastising bassmonkee I just thought it had some irony in it
    But if I've offended you bassmonkee I'll take back what I said

    Jace,

    You're all good, man!
