I read in another thread the suggestion for a list of things we've done for a moto project that have or would have
gotten us in the doghouse had "she" (or "he" for our female viewers) caught us.

I'll start:
I set up the drill press on the kitchen table from time to time and have to make very certain
I've cleaned up all the chips and debris afterward & before she gets home.
I've also placed multiple towels on the coffee table to protect it while I sharpened the chain saw on a rainy day.


Busted: Old girlfriend's 6 year old walked into the dining room at her place late one night while I bled the brakes on my Kawasaki in the kitchen.
"Mom! There's a motorcycle in the kitchen!!!"

I told her she could cut fabric with my tin snips to make up for it.
I made sure she wasn't holding her scissors at the time.

She was at the kitchen table rebuilding her chainsaw motor while I was baking pastries. I accidentally splashed some whipped eggwhite onto a new gasket she had just cut with my best scissors. We were both upset for a while but ended up going to the doghouse together.

Used her good and expensive sewing scissors to cut paper - Apparently a very bad thing to do.
Very bad thing. Scissors specifically made for a material should never be used for anything else as they dull up quicker. That'd be like using my leather sheers to prune a maple tree.

As for me: When I was married, I washed out red leather dye in the bathroom sink that stained the porcelain pink. Bleach got the job done before she got back from her shopping spree.

Off thread, but I once died some leather gloves red, washed my hands multiple times with Dawn afterward and *still* died a contact lense I was cleaning a faint pink. Into the trash with that one and off to the optician for a replacement. Doh!

Just apologized for metal filings on the kitchen table (again).
She took it in stride and grabbed a magnet off the refrigerator.
I think she may have done this before. lol
