    Obviously ๐Ÿ™„

    But especially in the cunning department. ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

    She now leaves herself logged in on ebay so every time I see a potential bargain and add it to “my” watch list it goes to hers instead.

    Taken me about a week to twig that a frame I was “watching” wasn’t appearing in my watch list, yet she was asking if I really thought another bike was worth a divorce.

    Darn her!

    Simple solution. Just and loads of kit to your her watch list ‘to see what stuff is actually selling for’. Top distraction technique.

    Oh I thought you were going to say she did it so she could buy you things as a surprise. She is clearly evil instead!

    Simples! Don’t let on that you’ve worked out what she’s doing, add lots of BSO’s to your watch list. She’ll then think that bikes are really cheap whilst on your other account you watch your carbon/titanium/whatever dream bike. Win the auction and pass it off as a BSO. What could possibly go wrong?

    Alternatively MTFU and buy what you want ๐Ÿ™‚

    My accountant Mrs added up my annual bike spend. I was shocked at the figures.

    She did point out that she was ok with it as I spend far less in the pub than I used to.

    We have a mexican standoff in our house. As long as I dont talk about “Bike Shit”, as she calls it, she doesnt care!!

    Also, my new workshop is buried deep in the garden, so she never ventures close enough to see what is within.

    She is too dim to log out of her ebay account and you are too dim to notice. I don’t think divorce is on the cards, you are a perfect match ๐Ÿ™‚

    My wife spends far more on footware and clothes than I do on bike bits and long may she continue because it gives me carte blanche whenever I do need something.

    You let her have her own eBay account?
    You need tighter controls, she should have a Prepaid tesco card ro get the food in and that’s all the financial responsibility she needs ๐Ÿ˜‰

    he should have a Prepaid tesco card

    Unfortunately Tescos sell clothes and Grey Anatomy DVDs too so that’s not restrict their spending ๐Ÿ˜•
    Seriously though I heard somewhere that part of the success of supermarkets selling clothing is so that her-in-doors can hide the spending from their cave man husband.

    mine saw my spread sheet of potential bike build costs

    Are you insane? why would you do that?!!! Apart from the the fact that the missus could get hold of it, why would you want to know how much it was going to cost, anyway? When building a bike, cost-wise, ignorance is bliss, surely?

    How much did that cost? I haven’t a clue, as I’ve mentally purged the details of that from my consciousness ๐Ÿ˜‰

    My missus has horses, my spending can’t get near…

    My missus has horses,

    you can get a cream for that, clears up in 4 weeks or your money back.

    solution…

    We use google chrome as a defualt browser and my wife’s ebay account stays signed in on this, so if I want to look at ebay stuff I use Firefox and keep my ebay logged into that one. simples.

    I keep one or 2 of my bikes at a friends house as my flat has less storage than his place with outhouse/workshop. He tells his wife all the bikes are mine, I tell my OH all the bikes are his, noone really knows who owns what so we never fully get into trouble!

    I was browsing online with the wife for a gift when wiggle helpfully popped up with all the ladies swimsuits I had recently been ‘researching’. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

    Me and the missus have separate laptops, turned out to be a good investment. Also as I work mostly from home, I receive all the many and varied packages and am able to smuggle them into the workshop where they ‘disappear’ while she is in work.

    Hope she doesn’t read this!!

    cos i don’t have much money, helps me work out what i can get away with…

    but ideally:

    I haven’t a clue, as I’ve mentally purged the details of that from my consciousness

    aye!

    I was in Mooose Cycles a while back oggling an Ibis Mojo; I said I couldn’t justify the money and if The Evil One found out I’d be in the dog house. They told me they’d just write a receipt for however much I wanted to show to her. They said they did it all the time. Genius. Mind you, a woman at work recently told me the value of her handbags and shoes was about ยฃ20k; dig deep it reckon.
