Found a BOP for $1000. Just signed off on a new house and haven't sold my old one yet. Even mentioning pinball around my wife would be suicide.

Buy it!

Buy it, put it in the new house and say 'honey someone left a BOP in the basement!'

I think it would be more "murder" than suicide, so religiously, you would be fine. I think it would be better to just ask the wife if she would like you to be happy with another machine, or happier spending life in jail since that is what she would get for killing you.

There is always two ways to look at things.

What is a wife?

#6 6 years ago

There is no way to pass that up...

#7 6 years ago

Lol. Isn't that always the way?

#8 6 years ago

At least let her know what you're passing up for her!

Do you have a friend that could buy it and store it for 6 months?

You mean, do you have a friend that could store it for 6 months?

Basically.
But if money is too tight right now, maybe he has a friend that could buy it and store it. Then there would be no missing $. Maybe he could kick in a little extra to his friend when he buys it off him in a few months.
I believe what I'm doing is called enabling.

I know buying a house sucks, because you can't do much with your credit and there's lots of moving expenses. But in general, women can't pass up a great deal. Make a case, show her the potential for profit, and see what happens. There's no way I'd turn down a $1000 BOP, but then again I'm infected with the pinball virus. (For which there is no cure. Heck, I'm sitting here trying to figure out how to get another game to fix up/shop because I'm done with the ones I have and bored. lol)

Timing is everything.

Yeah, me too. Have four but that's about 10 too few. Save enough, find out A/C died. Save more, now shrubs need trimmed and mulched. Save again and see some siding needs replaced. UGGG

Yeah two mortgages is going to win that argument. But, I'm glad you're all on my side. The owner of the BOP says all it needs is a new "spring". I don't know what that means but unless it's a $700 "spring" I'm thinking it's a good deal.

Alas... it's not in the cards.

#16 6 years ago

Tell me about it. Just got back from our honey moon and a nice JP pops up for a good price on craigs list....been waiting. UGH.

#17 6 years ago

Easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

#18 6 years ago

SHE WILL GET OVER IT.

#19 6 years ago

then take a Quick shower after, and get in the truck and go pick up your new pin...

Its just money you can always make more...

How could anyone argue with that, every day should be like that.

#21 6 years ago

buy it, put it in storage/friends house if avl and once all settled tell her you found a nice BOP for a good price and go pick it up from the storage unit/friends house

1 Vagina is NOT worth unhappiness !

There are too many spare ones floating around..

#23 6 years ago

That is a steal in this part of the world.
