Chicks, and sales.

I personally can't remember the last significant thing I bought that wasn't needed, or used. Well, 'needed' could be conjecture depending on who's telling the story. Seeing as I am, it was NEEDED. Same with acquiring items. It's tackled like a military op with the moon sitting just right and the day selected with all the variables considered, itemised, and alternate plans in place in case of unforeseen circumstances arising. Then she's over before anyone knows I was there.

Twas talking with Al on Twitter and he mentioned how his 'lady friend' - (whatever the hell THAT means...he's SOOO tapping it either way ;o) - when he raised the point of how she's going rank on shop sales and has bought stuff she just doesn't end up liking.

DO ALL chicks do this?. My missus - ( PRAYS TO THE LORD ABOVE SHE DOESN'T READ THIS) - buys SHIT cause it's on sale thinking she's saving money....I mean, you know....

  2. If it was something she really needed then she IS saving money by buying it when a sale is on. Especially true if we're talking boots or a bag. Simple.

  11. Sales are great fun.

    They can also be painful.

    I don't earn a huge amount, so sales give me the opportunity to sometimes buy something that I normally would not due to cost considerations.

    I know people who have PLENTY of crap that they've bought on sale. I also know even more people with crap they bought FULL PRICE that they don't need.

    At the end of the day, what would you rather? A partner who has a small splurge at sales, or a partner who splurges at any time? ;)

  12. Well said CG. Reckless spending more often relates to non-sale items in my experience.

  13. The good news is, I got a kiss and hello when I walked back in the door, orbit seems to be back to normal, what i fear now, is the acquisition of more useless frilly items
