Today I was shopping alone at Costco with some knowledge of what my wife wanted me to buy. Yet, as I have done in the past, when I want to get something new, I find myself often calling her on my cell for approval.
I laugh to myself why I do it. Its because she makes such a big deal if I buy too much or if “we don"t need it”.
What I found even more amusing was that grown men in their 30s, 40s and older said to their wife or significant other something like “Lets get this” and like a mother to a child, she would retort…“we don’t need it” or “put it back”. I’m not exaggerating when I say I saw this in 5 separate situations this afternoon
Have my fellow dopers noticed the same thing or am I just a total wus? and why do we men acquiesce so easily…thats the secret of continuing the marriage might be one answer.
