You need to build a vault.I thought I was fooling my wife that way. Till one day she goes “well we’re gonna have to buy another safe the one we got is full”.That’s when I realized I was just fooling myself. That was 20 years ago and now we got five Safes four are full.
I like that!I always thought that when I snuck a gun into the safe, I was good to go. If someday she asked about that new gun, I would just say it had been there a long time, just not shot often and I was safe, she didn't know. Then when we moved to a new house. I had to empty out the safe to move it, there were 2 guns in there that I didn't recognize, my wife said those had been there a long time.
That's the way it is with us. She says as long as we can afford it.NEVER lie to the spouse. NEVER! Dishonesty only leads to more dishonesty, which leads to very expensive endings. just tell the truth from the start. Tis better to ask forgiveness than permission. I always just say "Oh lookey! Ima gonna get this" as she looks at whatever it is, rolls her eyes and says "Thats nice". Guess I'm lucky. My wife knows I work hard for what I have, and knows the bills always get paid first, so never complains about my toys.
