Totally unfair argument and smacks of "I'm more important than you."

One time my husband tried that **** statement on me. I offered to quit doing all I do around the house and he can hire someone to do all the chores and see how much it cost him. He didn't earn enough money to hire a private cook, personal shopper, finance manager, nanny, laundress, etc.

I am like you, ZG. I don't have many clothes at all. I have 4 pairs of shoes. I don't even carry a purse but more of a small wallet type thing.

I am very, very low maintenance. I never want anything for Christmas or my birthday. It ticks the kids off. LOL

My wife had the option of staying home for a while when my daughter was born. I think for her sanity it was wiser for her to work. Being a stay at home mom/dad is way more than a full time job. I would rather work!!

But I am like you too Winds in that I have a ton of nail polish. That's my one girlie thing.

Me, too. The only one telling me "no" is my budget.

Ssshhhh.....you let out my secret!! But at least nail polish doesn't cost $500.00 like a Coach purse. Or $100.0 like a pair of fancy shoes. And I kind of think I am underestimating those prices.

My wife bought an authentic Coach purse for $50. My wife can find a good deal anywhere.

I tell her when I buy guns or I would have a lot of explaining to do with the amount of guns I have.
