That you should not use your girlfriends pilates/exercise mat as an under-car work mat, and then drip gasoline on it and don't say anything untill she uses it for exercise class.
 
Her: Are you brain dead??? All I smelled was gas at the class this morning.  You owe me a new mat!!Angry
 
Me: I did'nt smell anything... really.  Side note: I have an impaired sense of smell. I can detect very few smells, including all types of gas.Wink    These women are soooo sensitve about their stuff.
 
Did you know.... that using bath towels under the car that I got from her house is not a good idea either.  I just needed something soft for my head.   She is soooo sensitive.
 
Why does she not have hand cleaner at her house??? I washed my hands with those little blue balls of soap and now I smell like a French Poodle at the club.
 
Her: Did you use my blue face ball soap????Angry
 
Me: It looked like soap to me.
 
Her: You IDIOT... thats for my face, not your greasy hands!!!
 
Me:  Soap is soap.  (did not say out loud; blue balls for the face???)
 
She is sooo sensitve.

I didn't powder coat, but I did put my valve covers in the oven for a while after I painted them.

CryYipes, I can relate to the bath-tub. I have cleaned/soaked/de-antifreezed the carpet from her side of the car when the heater core went on the fritz and her feet got a nasty red rash on them. She understood, but still made me use thoes scrubbing bubbles to get it clean. I need to clean the trim on the inside soon. I'll wait till she goes shopping.

Never!! Clean up vomit with her vacuum cleaner. Especially when its 2 weeks before she uses it again, in the summer when the temp has been around 90 degrees every day................ Oh and if you do, don't store the vac in a small closet for that period of time.AngryOuchCry

Using a pillow from the living room couch to rest your head while lying on the dirty garage floor can get you in deep trouble too.   Especially if you're changing the oil...Unhappy
