    Miriam needs to learn to read the first sentence of every paragraph instead of only the first sentence of every page. That is the essential skill to not reading everything but not ending up looking lazy. Miriam obviously did not go to high school.

    The funniest bit was how they said the husband tried to cover up for wearing her underwear because he couldn`t find any of his own. Genious.

    Miriam is assuming the car is normally aspirated instead of fuel-injected, but there`s nothing in Mrs B`s message to indicate that. Miraim doesn`t mention a clogged fuel filter or condensation in the gas tank, both of which are a lot more likely than a clogged fuel line or bad pump.

    Transvestite and transexual are not the same thing. Just because he feels comfortable in women`s clothes it doesn`t mean he wants to be a woman. Look it up.

    It seems to me that Miriam didn`t see the cross-dressing as a problem, and preferred to be deliberately obtuse and offer advice on the car problem.
    Also, as this seems to be a gag magazine -- possibly a gag?

    I`m sorry, I have to laugh at the irony. Had you "chosen" read through the mere 2 pages of posts you would have seen that the whole thing is a hoax. It`s a joke. It was even on snopes.com.

    Happynoodle:
    "She deserves crappy advice, why would she leave her husband for that?"

    Why? Because he isn`t a colleague, who you can avoid, or someone sitting next to her on the bus, who you can ignore; he is her husband. They are together for LIFE. Imagine someone who makes you uncomfortable, someone you think you don`t know anymore because he turned out to be something you never thought he could be, someone that warped the image of the man you married, and living with him for all your life. Those are a few of the many reasons why, for example, people tend to leave their partners because they don`t have the same sexual orientation, cheated on them, or turned out to be an unconvicted criminal.

    Don`t say that being transvestite is not as signifcant as all the examples listed above, because for some, it certainly is. What man dresses up in women`s clothes because he`s depressed anyway? That says a lot about his personality, so maybe the woman was made uneasy by it.
