My missus lets me get away with it as long as I pay for holidays and buy stuff in wife pounds (£1 wife = £3 sterling ;) )

I thought 1 wife £ = £5 sterling? Or is that just me?

I think each man's exchange rate depend on the wife's current mood/chocolate intake/voice volume ;)

This conversation began yesterday in "my build thread" so I thought id move it to a thread of its own since it gatherd so many posts.

Good choice Lenny...

I also have the "you've done it to yours when are you doing mine" discussions lol...

So every mod I do ends up costing me twice as much!!

I will never get out of debt to my wife, so I take it on the chin, and get on with it... and if she says "you'll owe me" I just say "no change there then" and then let the mood calm itself after a few hours, days, or weeks, then get on with it :)
