    Default Wife keeps taking my truck!

    We just purchased this Silverado, and I thought it best to have her do the test drive. She liked the ride, the sitting up higher, so she had no problem with me buying the new truck. Now it seems she comes up with reasons to drive the truck. Today she wakes me up, and while I am still have asleep says I'm going to pick up a few things. I am no problem, and then I realized what was going on. Yep the truck was gone. Thankfully she hasn't brought it home full of manure yet, but then we are moving, and she will probably surprise me with that then.
    Soon as her car dies, we probably will be a two truck family. Do some of your Wives take your trucks as well?

    Mine stays far away from my truck, she made the mistake of putting a dent in a new truck I had back in 1988 and hasnt driven any truck weve owned since then.

    My wife's commute to work is about half of what mine is, so she takes the truck a few times a week so we can "save on gas". I know she likes driving it though and as long as she parks in a safe spot I don't mind too much.

    Mine did the same thing. She had been nagging me every time I took the truck off the highway - she didn't want it scratched up or muddy !! She put a huge dent in the right side of the bed, I repaired it - she NEVER said a word to me after that.

    I'm on the lookout for an actual truck now just for that reason. The Traverse was supposed to be mine, but the wife seems to have taken it over, and we have a transitional vehicle right now that was supposed to be the daily driver, but it's such a piece of junk that we're going to sell it as a cash car and that will help me get a truck.

    The wife's got a slight depth perception issue, so she doesn't want to drive a full-size truck, so either I'm looking for a Silveraro or at least a Tahoe. If I had enough parking (and I don't) then I would think about getting a Suburban, but we're right across from a large park that just got expanded, so there are more and more punks out. Come to think of it, I might look at putting some gravel down so I can park on the side of the house, then I could get a full-size crew cab, or a burban .... hmm, time to daydream a little bit.

    Sounds like it's time to get a second Silverado. If one is good, two is better!
