My wife is a fox…..
But especially in the cunning department. 👿
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!Posted 5 years agodroflufMember
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 🙂Posted 5 years agocheers_driveMember
he should have a Prepaid tesco card
Unfortunately Tescos sell clothes and Grey Anatomy DVDs too so that’s not restrict their spending 😕Posted 5 years ago
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.binnersSubscriber
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 😉Posted 5 years agonigelb001Member
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!!Posted 5 years agosingletrackmindMember
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’.
“Oh bugger , That was suppposed to part of your christmas present . Never mind I’m sure I can always find you something else”

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 £20k; dig deep it reckon.Posted 5 years ago
