Would you...

This thread is going to be a series of questions. Like..I'll post one to start, and somebody posts their response then creates another situation. Like..do you like Ford or Chevy, and of course you'd answer Ford (I hope...baaaad Roger ^_^ hehe) then make your own question. It's been kinda quiet. Anyways...here we go.

Would you....






Rather be in the doghouse for ordering a few dream parts from Summit Racing...

Or spend that money on your wife/girlfriend....with the obvious "perks" and "benefits" which correspond?

O.o ...harsh....

Being a female I could understand why I would put you in the doghouse for ordering parts. But if it really meant that much to you I would agree!! But I would expect you to spend time and get parts!! With the obvious "perks" and "benefits" getting the best of both worlds!!

You'll see one day. lol

Of course you and I both know you're right. Life doesn't always allow us to do everything we want too.

I am very fortunate. I married my best friend and I treat her as well as I can. However, she doesn't want to see me cry so she lets me buy what I want. LOL

it has to be give and take, If you do it all the time, expect to get told about it, if it is once in a while, and you can afford it, then it isn't a problem. It's called consideration. If it's all about you and your toys, don't expect to get any. If you spread it around, and share, it comes easy. I get what I want when I can afford it, but I also spoil the wife on occasion too, makes life sooo much easier. My ex would have busted my chops no matter, so you can imagine why she is the EX. Everything was about her, and I was the one getting shafted. I won't go into the deatils of the bills she racked up and wondered why I might get upset. But I also spend some money on her vehicles too, and she likes that as well.

O_O I doubt my girlfriend would understand. "You...you spent 400 dollars on your exhaust? ...you could have flown out to me easily for that"

Anybody have another "scenario" to come up with. O.o

well I don't have another senerio but when I get mad at my truck, and put a for sale sign on it the wife takes it down, and tells me to fix it, her response on ordering parts is I make the money the house is paid for the bills are paid, here bronco is paid for we have enough food, so spend it.
