We own two cars for daily driving. Typically my wife's Saturn is for her use almost exclusively to go to work and errands. My car is the family car so whenever we go someplace together, it is in my car. So that was a long way to say I don't drive my wifes car all that often. Now, the last two times I've driven her car, I have found big problems with the car that really did need attention. LOML's comments always seem to range from "Oh is that what's causing that." to "Well, it kept running, so I didn't worry about it."
Is this normal? Do others spouses and or adult kids work in the same way? Now I need to note that LOML is really, really smart. She holds a PhD in material science and is well respected (and feared by some) for her mental capabilities. I'm just astounded that things that send off warning bells to me have virtually no impact on her. (I think she married me so she would look better.)
Not a rant or complaint since I've become accustom to it. I'm just more curious as to how prevalent it is.
