Dear Husband,
It would have been nice if you would have mentioned the fact that you need new tires on your car a bit sooner than three days before we are leaving for Disneyland for our son's birthday. You have made me sole financial manager in our house by not showing any interest in what is going on (in more ways than one)...but that doesn't mean I'm a miracle worker....nor does it mean I've found a way to grow money in our back yard. I think what pisses me off even more is that I realize now that this is you...never planning ahead....never paying attention to things that need to be taken care of. And now you will just go about your day and won't think twice about how this will all work out. I on the other hand will stress about how tight our budget will be from now through the next several weeks because of this unexpected expense.
It must be nice to be you.
Love, Your Wife
PS: You didn't endear me to you any more by telling me you forgot to give our other son his cold medicine this morning. A mere 15 minutes after we discussed staying on top of his medicine so he'll be good to go to Disneyland.

I bet his Mama took care of everything before you....

You should make him drive on the old tires. Unless, that is, he's DRIVING you all to Disneyland.

Men!

If your situation is so precarious that $600 for new tires represents such a hardship in light of going to **Disney**, then you need to plan better for regular maintenance because tires happen.
