The wife is weird sometimes..........

Postby JRG » Tue Sep 12, 2017 3:58 pm

I don't know about yours, but my wife is weird sometimes.

I watched the Apple news conference today and decided that I would get a new Apple Series 3 watch. She immediately said that would be great. Go back about 3 weeks or so and I mentioned something about getting a new Mossberg Shockwave. She said "What do you need a new gun for? You have too many as it is."

They would both cost around $400. The watch evidently is a good idea, however the Shockwave is not. Somehow, I find that weird.

How about you?

Have your LGS engrave "Apple Series 3 Watch" on a Shockwave. Buy. Problems solved.

I wonder what she'd say if you told here you wanted to buy a $400 Gucci purse? :mrgreen: :lol:

As an Apple shareholder, I applaud your wife’s approval of your new series 3 watch purchase. As far as the Shockwave goes, I’ve always kept a separate gun fund for buying & selling so I can operate autonomously. She’s not interested in guns and I’m not interested in her knowing how many I have.

In three years the Apple watch will be obsolete - if it even still works.
In three years the shockwave will still be good as new.

It's your call.

I'll mention two or three times that I sure could use this or that and she'll acknowledge my remarks and of course I interpret that as approval. But it's not :nono: .

I pay attention to when SWMBO says something like "That would be nice to have" or stops and looks longingly at something and it pays off. Recently we were at a Wally World. She examined a metal lone star decoration piece and commented how nice it would look over her table and two chair girlie tea set thingy on the patio. It was the same color. I grunted my usual response. She was visiting me while I was working in Houston. A week later she left back to La Grange. She hadn't been gone 15 minutes and I was out the door to Wally World and bought that danged star to hang over her girlie tea set table on the back porch.

I haven't bought any guns lately but she doesn't say anything when something for the hunting ranch shows up like a new 22 gun safe.

With the ladies, it is the little things. You guys need to be more sensitive and get in touch with your feelings.

When I got my LTC my wife was asking me "are you going to carry that everywhere?" Of course the reply was certainly, when we made a late night trip to Wal-Mart and a couple of shady looking guys were crossing the parking lot going in our general direction, she asked me if I had my gun on me, I said yes always. That is the last time she said anything about me carrying!

I don't think I have any of those!

Just ask her what she needs another pair of shoes for? Or another bag, as the case may be.
