    i understand this. My wife is generally pretty frugal and its nice, but overall turns a blind eye instead of digging down in the details, cause she knows she spirals when she tries to understand our expenses and such.

    Meanwhile, my wife just had our realtor preview a house that is $125k over what I said I'd ever be comfortable spending

    Always such a great idea, now you are fucked because no other house that your cheap ass can afford will come close.

    She is a savvy one. She just gave herself a ton of bitching ammo for the next 25 years.

    The real sneaky move is that it isn't even fully updated, so you take the tip by expanding the budget just before the full pelvic thrust of a remodel comes a year down the road

    And she will use it. My mom still bitches about the house she has lived in since I was like 5 years old.

    You should try sticking to a budget when building a house with a non-frugal wife. “But the diamond encrusted light switches look so nice!” “Of course we need seven dishwashers.” Wasn’t sure we would survive that process.

    So I solved that problem by immediately drawing a giant penis on the one at Home Depot. It should a giant touchscreen for writing notes. She got all pissy and cleared it off and said “well we are never buying one of these...”

    Now any time she goes to Home Depot by herself I ask her to do me a favor and draw a dick on the fridge they have up front.

    Been looking at a 'new' car for the wife
    She has a cousin at a local dealer so she went up there a couple of weeks ago and fell in love with the Buick enclave, partly because its midsized and has a 3rd row...
    This was after driving several SUVs, including the Tahoe which was specifically "way too big, I cant imagine trying to drive something that big with no more seating"

    That dealer only had one used enclave, so since it was literally the first time she had looked at anything and I am a research freak, we didnt buy it.

    I have decided to buy one from Carvana, and was going to do it this weekend, let her pick the color and stuff.
    She knew we were gunna do that this weekend....
    I come home yesterday and she says "I decided what kinda car I want"

    I'm like "ohh yea?"

    Her exact words were "An all black Chevy Tahoe with black rims"

    Rule at my house is if you are home first its your job to figure out dinner. I'm home first 90% of the time so i do it which is fine.

    Sometimes when it was her turn she brought home food i dont like vs her actually cooking. When she did that i made mac n cheese the next day bc she is lactose intolerant.

    She got the point pretty quick. It hasnt been a problem since.

    The worst thing about my wife is we are not temperature compatible. She is cold at anything below 69° and complains about being hot above 80°. She sleeps under an extra blanket and i sleep in just shorts 90% of the time. I keep a fan on my side to keep air moving and she rolls up like a burrito.

    We had to leave the apartment at about 6:50 this morning. I was ready like 15 minutes before that so I just sat on the couch watching tv and a minute or two later she's doing the same.

    6:50 I get up to leave and she jumps up and suddenly remembers about 30 things she needs to do before we leave.

    Every fucking time.

    I used to wait for her to basically be ready before I got ready, but now I get ready first and then more or less accomplish a day’s worth of tasks before she is ready, ie go get gas etc.

    I set a time of when we should leave by. No matter what she won’t start until only everything that needs to be done can be done if everything goes perfect. I will mess with her and move the time up 15 minutes for a margin of safety and she’ll lose it. If anything goes wrong, look out.

    I talked to her about it first and it didnt change her behavior. She sort of apologized, but didnt do anything different. Once she realized what a dick move it was she stopped.

    At the very least she realized if she's selfish it has consequences. I can definitely be passive aggresive but its not my first choice.

    I’m only remembering one of two very recent gems so I’ll lead with that one and hope I remember the other.

    My 5 year old son: Hey what are stars?

    My wife: I don’t know what they are?

    Me: ..... You don’t know what stars are?

    Her: Are they like, other planets?

    Me: Son, stars are other suns, like our sun, but a lot farther away.

    Her: What, really?

    Me dying inside.

    GF brought home a girl from a strip club (not a stripper just some girl she met there) - she has now been at our place for two days and I'm leaving to Coachella now.

    So basically have a new roommate that we know nothing whatsoever about. I had the "it's not a puppy" argument already, is what it is I guess.
