When your wife drives away from home, there’s a good chance she's putting a dent in your vehicle as well as your wallet. A new study has uncovered that people frequently keep driving mistakes secret from their significant other.  The survey, which was conducted by, found that 35 percent of people admitted to dinging the car and blaming someone else. Granted, some of us have had minor incidents but not taking responsibility for it is like passing gas and blaming it on your dear old grandmother.  In case you're wondering whether your wife is out at this very moment playing demolition derby at the local shopping center parking lot with your truck, odds are pretty good she's not going to tell you about the new traffic ticket you'll end up paying for, and they certainly wont mention all the new dings and dents they casually picked up along the way.  Before you try snatching up the keys from your wife, and likely end up sleeping on the couch, you should know that the survey also found that men have a higher propensity for lying across the board. When results for wives vs. husbands were examined, found that 42 percent of men did in fact put a dent in the car and blamed someone else, compared to 27 percent of women who were guilty of the same thing. Well there you have it, we're all a bunch of dirtbag liars! Some of us have only kept getting into a rollover a secret... from.. well, everyone!  So, what kind of truck related incidents have you kept from your significant other? Post a comment bellow and spill the beans on the craziest thing you've ever done in a truck! For more information about the survey results, visit
