Sometimes it works in your favor. I was going to buy a $9K movie poster. I told the wife and she wasn't too happy as we were planning a trip. She said to "sleep on it" and see if I felt the same. Well, the next day, my friend said he would sell me his spare one for $3K less! Boom!

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Anytime anybody mentions their wife in this hobby...
"Oh now I can't sell it because my wife loves it."
"Oh, I can't pay that price because the wife."
I always figure it's bullshit.
But I figure that about ALL explanations in selling and haggling.
"I'm only selling this because I have a new GB coming in"
"I love it but I think it's time for someone else to enjoy it"
"It's an awesome game but I have too many projects right now!"
I don't give a wet fart and neither does anybody else. You see this stuff in FS ads all the time and it's completely ridiculous.
When you see me sell a game, I list the price, location, and brief description of condition. If people want to know more they can ask me. I get tired of all the additional garbage I have to wade through in FS ads because none of that stuff matters. I don't REALLY think some lame excuse/explanation is gonna help me sell my game so why bother?
So I don't take any particular offense at the wife card. It's just a small component of the regular white noise when it comes to buying and selling.

Hey! We're talking here...stop being so damn logical!
