    Okay boys and girls.

    Here is your chance to explain in detail how to convince somebody not to say "No".

    As a start, here's mine:

    I never give the chance for the question to get answered.
    I always ask for forgiveness than permission.

    (If you ask "Can I kick the dog?" will most of the time be answered with "No!", but if you say "I kicked the dog. I'm sorry"........)

    This gun is an investment, it will only go up in value. Those Sks rifles used to sell for $75, now they are over $300!

    If you kicked my dog it would be difficult for me to forgive you anytime soon. :mad:

    Now, if you wanted to buy a gun, I'd insist I get to go with you and I want to fire it first. LOL

    The wife thinks I have too many ideas already.

    This could be used as a sticky should we ever get in a situation.

    (She has told me "No" when I mentioned that I was looking at a new car. But that is because I gave her the chance to say "No")

    Well, why did she say "no" to a new car? Were you looking at a very expensive one? Do you really need one or just want one? Maybe she doesn't want to take on a car payment. Maybe the payment would be too much for her to feel comfortable with. I would need to know more info to put in my .02 worth.

    What is this "asking permission thing" you all are talking about? :confused:

    You must be married and stuff. Now it makes sense. :)

    If it is not asking for permission it is agreeing without fail.

    "Yes Dear, you're the Queen."

    We have 8 different forms of transportation now.
    5 cars, 2 motorcycles and 1 pickup.

    She isn't worried about a car payment, just that she thinks I don't "need" another.

    I have her convinced to let me have 1 firearm for each year I live. I just have to explain how I look to be in my mid fifties when I have 103 firearms.

    I like it but...how does that work with sex?

    Does she wake up "sticky" and look at you waiting for your apology? :D

    If the weather is warm I wouldn't care. I could sleep in the dog house with my new gun.

    It was on sale and there was going to be one there anyway-----Gallager

    I too ask for forgiveness rather than permission, but only if I get caught. :D

    The way I see it, if you are not in debt, and have money to spend, you should be able to buy anything you want, and she should too.
    I am not going to tell my wife that she can't buy something unless it is causing finacial problems or if it's literally leaving me without any money for myself.
    On the other hand, I will NOT allow my wife to tell me I can't have something just because she thinks I have "enough". If she does try this, I'm just going to do it without talking about it first.

    Well, I guess I'll have to find a women who believes that too, or at least one who wants to buy as many guns as I do. THAT, would solve that problem once and for all. :D

    Then there's the problem of questions they really don't want the true answer to like, "does this dress make my butt look big" or the problem of does she really need another purse or pair of shoes. It's inevitable ;)

    BTW NEVER SAY YES to that 1st question NO MATTER what she tells you. It's an ambush!
