    because I make about 4x what she does). We have literally never fought about money.

    Uhhh yeah , generally speaking it's not couples that can afford a Porsche and corvette in the same week that are arguing about money... jus saying

    Nonsense. I have friends who make far more than I do and they argue with their spouses about money all the time.

    Looks like the OP had some pretty nice machines, I should contact his widow about the Flash Gordon!

    Quoted from Ed209:

    The great garage war of 2017 has begun in our house. My second floor gameroom has started to overflow into the living room and we're currently in a dispute over garage space. With two NIB games on the way that'll also go into the living room talks should speed up. If that doesn't work my fall back plan is to urinate in the garage to claim my territory. Never stop, never stopping!

    This reminds me of the time my husband told me he likes being able to pee in the basement without having to go upstairs.

    We don't have a bathroom in the basement.

    Yes - being married is educational in ways I never expected.

    Better not ask him to water the plants!

    #62 2 years ago

    I usually tell my wife something along the lines of the OP. I still do what she wants. It makes me feel good to say it. We both laugh.....

    Fortunately, my wife doesn't know the difference between a 1988 Taxi vs. 2017 Dialed In

    You forgot..............

    10. Driving down the side roads looking for that chopped off part she threw in the bushes.

    #66 2 years ago
    Quoted from PBFan:

    No response from OP - the OP has clearly been:
    1. beaten to death
    2. fixing his damaged pins
    3. hiding underneath the car in the garage
    4. meeting with his attorney
    5. living in a "Stern" box down by the river
    6. having surgery to remove that shoe from his a$$
    7. re-planting the gardens in the front & back yards
    8. accompanying her shopping in her new convertible
    9 or stuck on the LA freeway.

    I've met the OP. My guess based on the available options is number 3.

    #67 2 years ago

    Situation has escalated, still fighting the good fight.

    Mentioned my end-of-year bonus should be big this year. Told the kids to start thinking about what pinball machine we should buy. SHE WAS NOT HAPPY. She wants me to get the house painted. Serious? Come on, it's bonus money!!

    The kids are on my side now though.

    The plan is to start showing her decked out $15k LE's so when the time comes, a pin half that price looks reasonable.

    #68 2 years ago
    Quoted from radium:

    I AM GOING TO BUY MORE PINBALL MACHINES I DONT CARE WHAT YOU SAY

    Man I sooooo glad I don't do that kind-a shit.

    Wow! I just love my wife, pinball is her passion and I got addicted. We both work and all my bonus has just been spent on Star Wars LE.

    Serious question. Why can't your wife pay to have the house painted? Or to save more money, paint it herself?

    #70 2 years ago

    There is only one plus of your girl (not mine) not being into pinball. You can say "what, that one? I have had that one a long time".

    #71 2 years ago

    Paint the house yo-self and reap the awards of happy wife and excess cash into new pinball.

    A wise man once said- "Don't argue with your wife, dicker instead"

    #73 2 years ago

    adding this to my famous last words list!

    #74 2 years ago

    I've only added one pin in the last ten years (which she knew about: Mustang Boss premium NIB in 2014), yet every time my wife (who never plays pinball) goes in the pinball room she accuses me of having added games.

    In my experience, the only reason a wife wants to discuss items before buying is so she can veto them.

    Funniest post all month!

    #79 2 years ago

    Indeed. Not married and don't plan to be. That's how I can keep an open mind whenever somebody on here complains about their controlling wives.

    Oh, that explains it. You should get out more. Carry on.

    Nice strategy. That kind of thing worked in "I Love Lucy" in the 50's. Maybe your wife doesn't go back that far. Hahaha. Good luck!

    #82 2 years ago

    And when it's time to paint the house, I don't need any woman to tell me that.

    #83 2 years ago

    It sounds like this thread is where the following needs to be.

    ***************************

    NINE WORDS WOMEN USE

    (1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are
    right and you need to shut up.

    (2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an
    hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five
    more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

    (3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something,
    and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing
    usually end in fine..

    (4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

    (5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement
    often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an
    idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing
    with you about nothing.. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

    (6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women
    can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard
    before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

    (7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just
    say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true,
    unless she says Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not
    thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' . that will bring on a
    'whatever').

    (8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying F-- YOU!

    (9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement,
    meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several
    times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man
    asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

    #84 2 years ago

    Get the pinball game you want and a dildo. If she doesn't like the pinball she can go f herself. Works every time.

    #85 2 years ago

    And if she really wants the house painted there is a simple solution for that.

    #86 2 years ago

    Just do it. It's better to ask for forgiveness than for permission if this is your case. Just say sorry and you can't return it admit your just an idiot. They love that shit.

    We might need to check his local obituaries.

    at the beginning of post i figured
    A he was already getting devorced
    B she was already passed on
    C he was just drunk

    But looks like he needs help.

    Ok so I got a plan. I could call up pretending to be a home improvement specialist. Give her a home makeover (painting) price quote that already has the cost of pin built-in. You agree the home is more important and pay for (only the very best for you honey).

    Then you tell her you won the pin in a poker game.

    A few white lies and everyone is happy!!
