Unhappy Personal Problem

I’m at a bit of a loss as to what to do. This maybe a strange place to flag such a personal matter up but you seem like a pretty level headed lot so I thought I’d cast the net and see what advice I got.

Ok, deep breath…..

For sometime now I've suspected that my girl may be cheating. You know the sort of thing. The phone rings, I answer, someone hangs up.

Recently she has started going out 'with the girls' a lot and when I ask which girls it's always "Just some friends, you don't know them".

I always used to keep an eye out for her taxi coming home but now she always walks up to the house although I can hear a car setting off as if she has just got out of one around the corner.

The other day I picked up her mobile, just to see what time it was, and she went crazy, screaming at me that I should never touch her phone again and why was I checking up on her.

Anyway, I have never approached the subject with her. I kind of think deep down I don't really want to know the truth. But then last night she went out again and I decided that I would check up on her.

Around the time she was due home I decided to hide behind my car which I knew would give me a good view of the whole street so I could see which car she got out of on her return.

It was whilst crouched behind my car that I noticed rust around my rear wheel arch.

So, …. do you think I should take it into a body repair shop or should I buy some stuff from a store and try to repair it myself???

Thanks.
Ken.

If you want to keep the car then have the rusr fixed, but the woman is a different problem, from what you said I would walk away from this. A simple love you but its finished.

Have the rust spot repaired quickly and cheaply and then sell the car ASAP. Same goes for the bitch, sell her to the slave trade ASAP.

Yeah pimp her out without her knowledge (you will figure it out ) and use the money to fix the rust spot or trade the car and use the extra cash for an upgraded model.

hey, it's a lot cheaper to not have a g/f than to let your car rust away

I think both the rust AND girlfriend problem are a result of the use of the conjunction "whilst". This anachronistic vernacular just doesn't have a manly ring to...um, wait a minute.
