You try to tell him something important, but he doesn't take you seriously, because well...you are a woman?
Our car has been having a little trouble here for awhile, making grinding noises. Hasn't been too loud or too bad until this past week. I told him earlier in the week that it had gotten worse, the grinding was really loud. He brushed it, didn't take me seriously. Never once went to check the car out. Yesterday we were supposed to go somewhere to meet his family in town. We pulled out of the driveway, he heard the grinding and said "Ummm, we're not going anywhere." Uhh really? I've only been telling him all week that the car was worse. *sigh*
So his mom came and got us (and we had to remove our son's carseat from our car--and I had that sucker installed during a carseat safety check a few months back--hope I can get it again just as tight), took us to get brakes and rotors so he can hopefully get them put on the car BEFORE I'm supposed to go to my son's parent-teacher conference later.
This is not the only time he's brushed off something I've told him. Just wondering if it's just my man that does it or if anyone else have to put up with that kind of thing too. Is it something about being a woman that makes men take us less seriously?

I think they don't have to driveit ,so they don't think about it. When they have to drive it then something is wrong with. As if a light bulb goes off. I always get the phone book out and start looking up auto repairs. I make sure he is near when I am doing this. He always ask what are looking for? I tell him I am looking for someone to repair my car. If I can't fix it I am going to have to pay someone to fix it. Suddenly he goes outside to see if he might able to fix it. GoodLuck!!!
