Sometimes Gary has anxiety, and the only way he knows how to ease his anxiety is to purchase something, and every winter that purchase is tires.
I thought he bought a whole new set of tires every year, but when we were at the tire store I found that it's only two tires a year.
This wasn't enough to calm his fears, so he told the tire man that he felt that he needed new shocks and struts.
Tire man said, "That's a good decision, because our shocks and struts are guaranteed for life."
I spoke up. "Check to see that we didn't already get shocks and struts here."
"DO NOT CHECK" Gary demanded. "I HAVE NEVER BOUGHT SHOCKS AND STRUTS ANYWHERE."
"That's so odd. I could swear we had bought them here. Check anyway," I asked the man.
'I NEVER GOT SHOCKS AND STRUTS HERE." Gary insisted.
Tire man said, "I see you did get shocks and struts on the Mini Cooper."
"Check the Fit." I said.
"THE FIT HAS NEVER HAD ITS SHOCKS AND STRUTS REPLACED."
Tire man said, "It looks like you got shocks and struts on the Fit... two years ago."
Gary was ... shocked. And you know I strutted the rest of the day.
