- Wife's Birthday – I asked what she wanted…
Its a clever female hidden answer, which means the opposite of the words stated.
In the same way nothing strikes fear into a mans heart like the words ‘I’m fine’, when you’ve just asked if she’s ok, as she looks a bit miffed?
Anyway…. get her an iron, or a pressure cookerPosted 4 years agoirelanstMember
You need to think back very carefully over the last month (or two) there will be clues;
Internet left on repeatedly at a particular shoe site? Comment about her favourite perfume nearly running out? A remark about a nice dress she’s seen whilst shopping with so and so – this one’s really cunning because by dropping the name of the accomplice, she knows that you know someone who knows exactly which dress it was. Looking in a mirror for ages and then asking if you can see any wrinkles?
If all else fails, pearl necklace!Posted 4 years agounknownSubscriber
See, I have the opposite problem. It’s my birthday soon and seeing as I don’t really consider being born as a particularly big achievement I would be entirely happy to ignore the whole sorry spectacle. The current mrs unknown does not understand this and insists that she can’t get me “nothing” and we simply have to go out to dinner with family to celebrate. Then I get in trouble for not giving her any good ideas of what to get me or where to go! I’ve tried to explain, over the course of many years, that the present I really want is for no mention to be made of the birthday, but it doesn’t compute.Posted 4 years agosamuriMember
Get her nothing.
Then she’ll realise she has to tell you what she wants, she’ll apologise, accept she is getting nothing for her birthday this year and you’ll both move on quite happily. There will be no come backs or retribution and next year her answer won’t be ‘nothing’.Posted 4 years agocbmotorsportMember
I have called my OH’s bluff on this. I always say to her to drop some hints, or let me know what she wants, as I hate buying things she’ll likely not need/want only to find them discarded a month later.
Last year, I asked her repeatedly what she wanted, and got back “nothing” in return, every time. So, I did just that, got her nothing.
It didn’t go down well, there were some tears, despite me reminding her how many times I’d asked her. She told her friends, they gave me grief when they saw me, even my friends winced and inhaled sharply when I told them.
So to summarise. Buy her something. Even if she doesn’t like it, you can at least claim you made the effort.Posted 4 years ago
