Have you ever cheated on your GF/BF/Spouse?

I kinda cheated on my GF today and have been feeling guilty. Problem is, like most of us, I already bring her flowers every two weeks or so, and we go out to dinner almost daily so the typical penitent atonements won't work. I need some advice on what is appropriate: maybe from the Sophisticated Ladies.

Oh, here's what happened: I was washing and waxing her S series using the double bucket method etc. I had just finished waxing (Meguiars) and polished (terry cloth). Also did the seats with leather cleaner/balm, I was about to finish with some Tire Bright but just then she called me in to make lunch since she has not studied domestic skills. Anyway, after lunch we took some photos of the cars, then some time on the forums and then I had to make reservations for dining/dancing tonight while she went to get a manicure so her nails would match her dress.

So I never did shine the tires!!! They are Michelin and only about one month old so look OK. My question is: is this not a big thing or should I confess?




On the other hand when we ordered the two cars I forgot to mention the SLK was going to be manual transmission which she cannot master and I have had no remorse associated with that... (or is that why I buy flowers every two weeks)

'Fess up and do the tire shine. Use one that is "fling-free".

You could have used a handkerchief pre-treated with speed shine to quickly and discreetly wipe the tires (touch up don't you know)....then as soon as possible complete the full tire shine treatment.

The severity of the problem could have been diminished if you had only apologized first thing in the morning for everything you might have done wrong the rest of the day. Be careful....you've got to use a sincere tone and exhibit the appropriate body language or........

If she doesn't notice then do nothing because what she doesn't know won't hurt her.

If she does bring it up, go out and throw some some dirt on the tires of the SLK to dull them up. Then tell her you had read that it's good to leave the tires "au naturale" every 15th wash or so their pores can breath freely.

Why do guys think we don't know.... we know, and handle it one of two ways.

A sweetheart would adore you to much to make a fuss over your lack of performance.

If she is a B~ She will mention her unmet needs at every opportunity. The photos are evidence, you need to photo shop those...CYA man cya.

You sure go out of your way to do alot for her, I hope she returns the favors...

If not get off this site and on to one of those other ones...then as previously mentioned get ur self to the Doc, they make a creams, a gels, and implants.....kidding wink!

I wouldn't confess. Just "admit" that it is "an experiment" to see how long the tires can still retain the "new" look.

Thanks for the advice so far. Lets see what we have:

Confess: 2
Deny: 6
Gestalt Apology for everything that may happen: 1

If I were in your shoes, I would trade the 05 S in for a new (or newer) one and get rid of the evidence. I suspect you may even get a reward for being so considerate and loving.

... tell all... we always keep score!

it's the effort that counts - so if the car is dirty but you washed it AND did the tires, she'd be happy. think of it this way... theoretically speaking, what if she just dumped cash down on a 2013 SLS AMG for you at the local dealer vs going through a lot of trouble to get a 2013 SLS AMG but the one she got you happened to be at a dealership in Alaska, so she made all the arrangements to have it shipped to you...

which one would you appreciate more? ummm never mind. knowing my luck you'd pick the opposite one.
