Have you ever wondered what the difference is, technically speaking?

I'm not sure if my wife will get a kick out of that, or if I'll get kicked out!

I'm sure many women look at us the same way, just with the labels reversed.

I'd bet the ON/OFF switch on the lower board is disabled or defaults right back to ON.

Let me preface this story with the fact that we did have a problem with the battery on our car 2 weeks ago. When I was getting a jump I noticed that it is not a maint. free battery. Nice 2 year old car so I NEVER thought to look at the battery. I always buy maint. free batteries. That is my defense.

My wife was in Vegas for the weekend and I get this phone call when she was on her way back.

The battery died and fortunately I valet parked it so the valets jumped the car. But then I had to get gas and we had to get this nice old asian couple to jump the car.

Me. Why did you turn off the car?

Don't you have to do that?

Me. No

So when I put the new battery in this morning I connect the battery and my first thought was, well I know this one works because the lights are on. My second thought was, the lights are on.

When I call her and tell her that she says, Nancy must have done that when she was driving back last night.

Yes Dear.
