    Grow a pair and tell her it's your f**cking money and you'll spend it any way you want.



    And then PM me for the number of my divorce attorney.

    Now I've stopped laughing enough, have a read of the post Flash made on my behalf.

    And then follow Pokerfaces advice, I also have a good lawyer. Continue at your peril.

    How would you feel if she spent a couple of grand on a trip away with the girls or a couple of handbags and pairs of shoes?
    I've been doing the sneaking stuff in act for a long time, don't do it any more as I learnt to respect my mrs' point of view.
    It was a tough week in hospital for me and my eye socket will eventually heal fully but, well, like I said, I now respect her point of view.

    Promise a big declutter, selling as much as you can on eBay, forums etc and to split the proceeds. Doesn’t matter who’s stuff it was, 50/50. Play on your hospitalisation to the max and say your half is going towards your new dream bike to help you cheer up. Request all forthcoming gifts to be donations to the fund. My guess is once you’re nearish to your goal she’ll either give in to your dribbling over pictures of S3s or she won’t notice if you top up the fund on the QT.

    Win-win officah :)
    I may be a minority of one but that doesn't prevent me from being right.

    Either

    - Appreciate the bike you have and forget about the S3.
    - Makes some money by selling your old bikes,
    - This is more painful, accidentally on purpose brake the frame of you current bike therefore meaning you HAVE to buy a new bike as the old one broke. This may sound drastic but you want a new bike and desperate times and all that.

    Tell her your'e nipping down to the local rubbish dump, come back with the S3 and tell her..

    ''How come you got a new bike?''

    ''I swapped it with a guy on a bike forum''

    ''Really? Why?''

    ''Well its a bit silly, but I really wanted a black bike and he wanted a white one, so we done straight swap!''

    ''Sounds a bit daft doesn't it?''

    ''Yeah, tis a bit, but you know me! Anyway, put your feet up love cus im going to cook tonight and ive also taped cory for you too. Love you mrs bear''

    We've had a few threads like this. TBH I don't get it. If you can afford it, your bills are paid and the kids aren't starving I can't see the problem. I wouldn't hide anything from Mrs Aggie. In fact she was the one who convinced me to get the bike I wanted (Orbea Orca) rather than a cheaper one I was going to get.






    I do have to wear one of these every day though........................ :lol:
