Hee hee.. Good one.

My wife is purely ignorant of the fact that there's something called TBHP even though I've been in it for around 18 months, and I like to keep it that way. Sort of my paramour. :-)

That was a great read! Thanks for stopping by, CC!

My wife sees me browsing TBHP in the lappie or the phone nearly all the time, she keeps telling me "you guys are crazy", or "sheeesh, you're addicted to this website". Luckily for me, she is also a travel-lover, and has nothing against cars in general.

What a great way to start a day! Way to go CC!

I need to figure out some way to keep this thread hidden from my wife's eyes.

Effects Tbhp on ETC (wifey):

1. Turbo Mode in Split AC is a.k.a "Turbo Charged" mode.
2. When your car is spinning out of control you are actually drifting - so chill yaar.
3. The palio overheats because it is hot outside - the padmini overheats because it is old - the m800 overheats because it is driven hard everyday.
4. i am ignoring her because i keep logging into tbhp everynow and then. She HATES tbhp meets - but she she has missed just two meets out of all the tbhp meets in kolkata.
5. Last but not the least - she has applied for a Learners' DL

Lovely write-up, Mrs. Hari.
It certainly was our (wifey and I) pleasure meeting you at the last Blore meet.

My better half also has plans of being a member here, although she is not a major automobile freak. She did find it rather amusing as to why 20 people would head out with their cars to a place - just to click snaps - of the cars! Now she knows she isnt the only one who has to put up with someone who's always fond of clicking the car's pics.
