Hey guys, So I've suspected for some time that my wife is cheating on me. The usual red flags, she turns her phone screen away when texting, always going out with the girlfriends, new underwear all the time. I try to stay awake when she comes home at night but I always fall asleep. Anyway, last night around midnight l decided to hide under my jeep and wait for her to come home. Shortly after a car pulled in and she got out while buttoning up her shirt. She then took out her panties and slipped them on under her dress. It was then at that moment while I was lying under my jeep that I noticed a hairline crack in the rear shock mounting bracket. Is that something l can weld? Or does the whole bracket need to be replaced. If it can be welded, does anyone have a welder l can borrow?

Dude ! I would find some good crack filler and stuff that in there and seal it up and dry and cure. With that other problem you found out about, weld it up and see how that goes.

Dont you find out these things at the darnedest times...what were the chances that youd be laid up under the jeep and spot it...the gods were looking after you...I dont see why if the metal is good you couldnt have it repaired..easy to keep an eye on it now you know about it...on another subject....check the other side too...

Thank goodness your wife was able to help you find your crack... Should be easy to weld up. I'm next door in NC and have a welder... come by and we'll have at it.

Thanks for playing along guys. I know this wasn't really appropriate to post but a friend sent it to me and I thought it was pretty dang funny!!!
I think we all could use a good laugh during these trying times, which will hopefully pass soon.
BTW, I don't really have a crack in my shock mount.........................
