She bought it
A true story . . .
I was taking my Mother home Thursday after she was over for a week long visit. I dropped her off, then went to my brothers house to pick up his power washer. Upon arriving at my brothers house, I found I had smoked a rear caliper. The truck wasn't going anywhere. Called my brother who said "go in the house and get the keys to my (spare) truck and meet me at the bar". Also called my brother in law (a brake mechanic) who said he was off work the next day and would fix my brakes tomorrow afternoon, but I'd have to go fishing with him in the morning. So went to the bar, then called the wife . . .
"Hi honey, I'm at the bar with Joe, the truck broke down, brakes went out. Brian said he'd fix them tomorrow for me, but we gotta go fishing in the morning first and by the way, it'll probably cost $500, oh and my cell phone is almost dead and I won't be home until tomorrow night."
She, kiddingly said "what's her name?"
I guess she figures that nobody would make up a story like that, so it had to be true.
