Default My wife said no.

Ok. I have just been neutered, and wonder if anyone else has my sickness, and how you would have approached your wife about the following:

I love toys. Cars and boats specifically. It is not rational, and it makes no financial sense what I do. The issue specifically is cars. In the past 10 years I have flipped 8 cars, mostly out of boredom. I have owned the following: FordF150, Toyota Tacoma, BMW 3 wagon, Jeep Wrangler Unlimited hardtop, FordF150 again, Jeep Wrangler regular softtop, Dodge Dakota, Toyota Tacoma extended cab, and finally my first leased car, which I have now, a bmw 328xi.

I lile the bmw 328xi, and have 20 months left on my lease. When it is over I will likely lease another similar car. The issue is that now I miss a pickup for beater jobs. I don't need it, although it would be useful to haul stuff from home depot, the nursery, my pressure washer and bikes up and down from the beach, etc. I would love nothing more than a third car, a new GMC Sierra! But realistically I located a local 2004 Toyota Tacoma reg cab beater truck with low miles for about $10k. This would be used for coaching my sports, nursery trips, etc etc etc., and I can see myself keeping it for years. Famous last words.

I planned carefully my phone call to my wife. I was thinking that, on a scale between

(oh honey... you are crazy... I love you .. do what makes you happy)

and

(are you crazy? I have put up with this irrational sickness of yours for our entire marriage and I am sick of it. %$$^^%%%$ nuts. I am putting my foot down. That's money that can be in our retirement. Enough already if you are effing bored take an effing walk )

that she would be in the middle, and would imagine my puppy eyes while on the phone, and relent and allow me to take advantage of this once in a lifetime deal for this local one owner mint last day of the month crazy sale days deal.

I miscalculated. She was not in the middle. As a matter of fact I left plenty out from her response in scenario 2 in my scale above. My ear hurts. My manhood is shrunk like George Costanza's manhood in a cold pool.

Anyone else have these issues? How do you talk to your wives about it?

Drive up in the yard with it, and say "look what I got today". Nuff said. Mine has gotten to where she doesn't even go look.

Go up to her.. put your thumbs in your belt loops..ask her "What are these" Then tell her "These are the pants and I wear them"......... Then run..

Look at it this way, you got rejected this time, so you have one on her next time.

Tell her you buy the toys to distract you from your real sickness....you want sex at least once a day. I imagine your next car will be a 7 series BMW.....or she will give you a lower allowance for some call girls.

Yep, that's how I do it. Last year I pulled in the drive and she said "whats that that boat doing hooked to your truck?".

I have found it a lot easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

My wife sounds a lot like yours. I'll never forget our wedding night when I pulled off my pants and handed them to her and told her to try them on. She looked at me with this big question mark on her face and said, "I can't wear these,. They are way too big". I said, "thats right darlin and you always remember that". Well she throws her panties at me and says, "try these on big fella". I say , "baby, there is no way I can get into these". And she says, "thats right and with that attitude, you never will". I knew that conversation was over and she was one up.

Uh, figure out a way to put the BMW in the shop and get the truck on a "lease" while you're waiting, which you convert to a purchase when the beemers ready cause you dont wanna throw all that lease money away and have nothing to show for it.

Besides, by then, she'll see how much dirty junk you can haul to the dump in the truck, etc....
