I truly adore Tracy, but I've got to come up with some really good going away excuses........

I'm sure you all have some that may have worked for you in the past, please share them!

Only criteria is, I still want to stay married!!

Tracy's still on about digging holes for footings under the house, I am trying to use the angle of "... look love, they are closing all the tracks, let's go while ther'e still open..."

I need serious help here, cause I havn't earned enough going away points under the house....

What would be really cool is if David could change that thing on my member page from PLOT POINTS to GOING AWAY POINTS.......?.... I could then say to Tracy.."Look, the tribe has spoken, I must depart!!" Extinguish my Dual Fuel Lantern and head off into the sunset...........

Whoa!! Sorry fella's... Reality just set in! Got all carried away with meself....

What is it with young blokes? Scared of a slip in a skirt? Tut tut.

First thing you have to do is sow the seeds some while back. Then start mucking about with the truck on the pretext of the next trip. Then you have to say that maybe it is going to be a really rough trip and in the end you get a reply apologetically...sort of........" I don't really want to go camping but why don't you go with your mates? "

GONE............

OR

Mark on the calendar the date you are going on your next trip and ask if anyone has any complaints about that.

How does it sound when Darth Vader snores...like me missus at 4am !!!!

I work sometimes 7 days @ week, + all the other things we do, still gotta be bored, life's not complete unless wer'e bored.......

Just gotta take a look at my dumb posts............. as long as it cheers a few souls...... that's boredom at it's best.

Cheers

Wolfie,
What are you, a MAN or a mouse. Just tell her that you are going. When you get back and find her gone plus all of the furniture, then you know that she didn't love you anyway. (it might Work).

Wolfie,
All of the above i'm afraid. (dont be so shallow as to admit these things mean something to you)

What about the HUNTER/GATHERER angle.

You need to reinforce these skills from time to time.

Loner,

I reckon you should tackle the problem from another angle......

Tell her you're afraid that if you keep digging that bloody hole (cripes it must be pretty bloody deep by now.......either that or you need to remember to turn the jack-hammer on...LOL) well; you're afraid that the house might fall into the hole and implode. Tell her that you really don't care if that DOES infact happen, but you're only concerned that it'll happen while your down there 4 storeys underground...and worst of all you will have perished without seeing some very bloody interesting parts of 'stralia.
So she should have a heart and let you see some of your beloved 'stralia b4 you bury yourself in your own grave!!!!

Good luck.

One day when I was digging, Tracy went upstairs to make some smoko.

Mark & I placed one on Kobi's bones in the hole. When Tracy came back down, I told her to come and have a closer look, hoping she would call a halt to the dig, and get the dudes from the University in with their Indiana Jones brushes & tweezers...

She just picked up the bone and threw it to Kobi........, and handed out the smoko....

God I love her!

Just tell her you have a job to do up at the Cape. Tell her the pay is lousy,conditions terrible and have to work 7 days per week on it for the next 7 weeks but because you are a true professional you feel obligated to go.

Okay so you want to stay married…..Crawler?

Tell her how much you love her and how much it breaks your heart not to be able to include her in one (or how many you want from time to time) in the trip…"You wont want to go with those ruffians i must! associate with"

If that fails get a good lawyer

Roachie,
If you think I have it good, then I will tell you about another driver and his wife that will doing the Simpson,15 days, (east west) the same time I am doing (west east). They finish there trip in Alice Springs, a few days later they do the Kimberley trip,26 days, which I am back up for them. This trip finishes in Katherine. From there they go to Darwin to do the Gulf trip,21 days. This finishes in Cairns and from there they do the Cape York run, 19 days. They start there trips on the 5th July and finish on the 2nd of October, then they can go home. I bet you did not want to know that either.

Wayne

Wolfie, I know someone who could pass as a building inspector. Now for a fee, I whoops they could come around and declare the work non complying and put a cessasion of work order on your place. It could last up to 6 weeks before you are allowed to recommence work again.
Just trying to help.
