Why you should really tell the wife first...


Recommended Posts

Took the wife with me.picked the car up a week later. Wife asked if she could drive it by herself 45 mins later she returned sahing she could not get the handbrake off car half a mile away. Couple of weeks later she gets 3 points as some boy racers were having a go. Went shopping and broke the lower front spoiler and anti roll bar. Now she dont get the chance. But cant comment on the car as it was her idea in the 1st place.

It's Oogies turn to boogie

My wife is a total motor-bird, who thinks women drivers are, in general, useless. She's no help when I need hauling in from buying something I shouldn't, which, being a bloke, I have on numerous occasions, be that hi-fi, cars, watches or guitars.

It's note all plain sailing, you know. Plays havoc with your wallet when your other half is no good as a financial advisor. Hence I'm usually broke, but happy!

My first Esprit cost me a kitchen.  Should have sold a kidney.

We sold a buy-to-let flat and my wife agreed to blow all the proceeds on the Evora!

 

Much more fun than worrying each month about the rent being paid, or the washing machine breaking, or the walls needing painting, or the.....etc.

Whipped.

 

I let her think she's the boss yes :) But if I really want something she won't argue too much .

Funny. My Esprit cost me a Conservatory and my Exige a luxury villa holiday in Cyprus :)

I find it best to double the budget amount you want to spend on whichever car/watch/hi-fi/boat you have or want.

 

By way of an example - Upgraded brakes = New Louis Vuitton/Chanel handbag/purse etc.


I did once make the mistake of getting the wrong thing. She asked me for something round and shiny for her birthday, and got the right hump when I gave her a Motolita steering wheel. Ho wthe hell was I to know she wanted a new ring?

Tony, she has one of the nicest vases I've ever seen.   :D

 

We should lobby to establish and regulate an equitable Lotus/sweetener exchange rate, as I believe our spouses get the better end of the deal and we're too stupid/starry-eyed to negotiate whilst thinking about a new car.

Good call Ian - I went to but a Tissot recently & came back with an Omega as well!

If it wasn't for the 'double your budget' rule, I'd have a Lamborghini or something equally exotic.

Yup, it could take the form of a graph, Lotus on the X-axis, sweetners on the Y-axis. The exchange values to be determined by an expert panel (consisting entirely of blokes, of course).

Sadly a new house beckons, I'm sure there will be loads of opportunities for "sweetners". Just seen one with 2 acres and outbuildings so looks like my only toy will be a ride on lawn mower!

I found divorce to be the answer, and in the long term more financially beneficial.
