Sometimes, I'll go like 20,000 miles over the recommended change date.

Anyone else have any sins they want to own up to?

I often tell my girlfriend that things I have bought cost much less than they actually did

It's not that bad, US automakers say change the oil every 3,000 to 4,000 miles, yet the same car sold in Europe, 8,000 to 12,000 miles. Hmmm....

I don't wear a helmet when I'm cycling. And I usually don't put the seatbelt on when I'm in coaches or taxis.

I read too much news on the internet. And there's always more. When will it end?

Funny, how when you're married, you do the opposite. "No honey, this didn't put us over our budget?" :D

Yeowch! Some of you need to have an overhaul class so you know what your doing to your engines.

Oh, and I pretend I never had my last girl friend.

Ok.. so .. ummm .. How do you get your oil filter off without spewing oil all over the place? Running synthetic, I change my oil every 6k.

I can play BubbleShooter for three hours straight and convince my wife I don't have time to do yard work because I'm busy "working"...

btw - If you don't know what BubbleShooter is .. DON'T look for it. I fear you might find it and get sucked into that nasty habit like I did.

I've been known to do the following things while driving- eat, drink (not alcohol), talk on the phone, text, read, write, organize paperwork, write a check, and also a few things which aren't appropriate to mention here.

If I could figure out a way to get my workstation to work in the car, then I probably would.

Even though I know better, I sometimes want people to like me.

I almost got hit by a girl on a roundabout the other week who had a cigarette in her steering hand, a cell phone in the other and was turned around, shouting at the kid behind her in a baby seat with music blaring out...while driving over a mini roundabout. 8/

I drink too much, err, no, wait a minute, I have no booze left in the house.
So, by deduction, I drink too little otherwise I'd have more of it around! :p

I don't own a game console, nor do I own a TV, an MP3 player, or a GPS unit.

I recently bought a clock. Woo hoo.

I think too good about myself and spend too little time with those who really matters. And I drink too much tea.

I actually change the oil in my car well before it's due for a change most of the time.

I have wasted literally hours flicking from here to facebook to cgtalk to the mini forum and back again in a constant cycle hoping for "something" to happen.
