My Wife Is A Moron

[EDIT 10/30/07 - PICS ON PAGE 5]

About a half our ago my wife nails the curb coming out of our parking garage (I wasn't in the car when it happened). So now the car's right rear has: a scraped and dented rocker panel, a wheel with even more curb rash than before, and a flat tire.

This is after I lovingly installed my new, perfectly color-matched CD Silver vent rings in the interior today (she was probably ogling those instead of looking out of the goddamn window)...

Gawd-frickin'-DAMMNIT am I mad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Although it couldn't of damaged the suspension, it MIGHT have altered the alignment a tad bit, even for something that little.

LOL ^^ my thoughts exactly... oh well, wives/gf's do stuff like that sometimes.. my gf told me her grand cherokee had a weird sound and was shaking a little.. then she calls me and tells me a tire fell off!! when i wnet over there, the wheel studs had somehow rattled loose and the whole wheel had fallen off.. turns out she had been running the truck for almost a week with the tire held on by one bolt!! can you imagine that at highway speed?? she didn't notice anything major
her wheel finally fell of, backing out of her driveway... thankfully it didn't happen doing 70mph!!
..i was pissed, but i didn't let her know it because she already felt really bad about it
--i ended up replacing the drum and all internals

You are right about that. When I bought my car, I had two things in mind. DAMN this car is sweet and thank God my wife can't drive standard.
