Latest significant others complaint about "the truck"

Hey guys if your on this site im sure its because you have convinced yourself that your truck is your one true love that being said 90% of the time the "better" half typically doesnt feel the same way (weird right?). Just thought id see how your "other" deals with your affair and what are the complaints you guys hear from your significant others about your truck.

Ill start i did a clutch kill switch mod the other day and now the clutch makes a loud clicking sound when i push it and i cant figure it out and my girlfriend proceeded to state that when i do something to the truck i always break something else, which is true

I also hear "*sigh* what are you doing to the truck NOW?"

Talking

Not to be gay but omg this is now my favorite thread to date !!! I bought this diesel excursion because I love them and with only 2 kids I didnt really need all this room but I am compinsating I think !! Haha I very seldomly haul anything but I had the V10 version and it was a huge pos so I bought the 6.0 !! Every time I want to do something to my truck (chip , exhaust, cold air intake ) thats all I hear is you dont need that or thats stupid or its already too loud !! We make plenty of $$ but try being married to an accountant !! That's all they do is worry about $ and find reasons not to spend it !!!!! So glad to hear I am not the only one having to get scoulded like a 4 year old from the woman I love !! We have been married 13 yrs. u think she would b use to it by now! !!!!!

Y'all have no idea! My wife is the CFO over our small business and my life pretty much. Believe it or not this was my decision many years ago. I make the money, she manages it. So when I buy something more than I have in my pocket she takes care of it.

I think something has gone terribly wrong in our marriage. As I recently purchased a new PS she was on board. $20k in upgrades in the last 2 months and no end in sight with more to come and all she says each time is "can I do that to my new Expedition when I get it?" As good as this sounds, something tells me this won’t end well. LOL

My wife doesn't say too much just normally asks "what did you buy now" when a package shows up at the house. Then she asks what it is needed for. Usually she is ok with it. She likes modified trucks so thats a plus.

I let my 5'3" 110lb gf drive my truck and although she didnt get out of 2nd gear the look of power in her face was priceless
