Recently, mentioned that I got a PDA. And, no, the Wife wasn't happy with it. But, with a change in duties at work, I'm having to attend a lot more meetings, and a PDA comes in handy. What with the ability to synchronize with my calendar at work, and transferring documents that I can take with me as needed, and such. Still, the Wife wasn't happy with it. And I knew she wouldn't be happy with it. But I got it anyway.
Also, recently, I got a TiVo. And again, the Wife wasn't happy with it. But I knew she wouldn't be happy with it. Still, I got it anyway.
So, the question is, why would a guy go and buy something he knows he's gonna catch hell about?
Simple. I'm a guy. And that's what guys do.
The trick is knowing that you're going to catch hell about it ... and timing things to minimize the effect.
So, how does one do that?
Do you really need to ask? Or do I need to explain it?
Okay, for you fellows that haven't been married long ... or for you women that want to know more about guys ... or confirm your suspicions about guys ... here's the deal.
If you know you're going to catch hell about a purchase ... time it so that it happens during a ... um ... period ... of time you're going to catch hell about everything anyway.
You know. That week. When Aunt Flo visits.
Everything you do will be wrong anyway, so you might as well get some benefit from it.
No, it won't cut down on the amount of trouble you'll be in. But it compresses to a shorter ... um ... period ... of time.
Think about it.
