went to get school shoes at John Lewis on saturday

was wondering why dh wanted to go there but thought nothing of it

oh but what is this? an offer on ipod and Bose says he, what a coincidence hmm

I harrumphed and said there wasn't anything wrong with the stereo we had but it was purchased anyway after a discussion hissing fit

well, it is great! it has millions of songs on and you press shuffle and off it goes for hours. The Bose thing is v loud and fab too

so do I continue to moan and roll my eyes or admit it and say he was right?

(we have been here before on mobile phones so he will be gloating)

no do admit he was right try your hardest to find fault with it.

or tell him it has too many features and therefore is bound to break.

You can admit it's fab as long as you look mournfully at things in catalogues and say "If only we could afford that <sigh> but having shuffly and loud music is just as important as the children, I suppose <small tear>"

oh i dunno! i would like on too though!! maybe you should say it's not that bad after all!

oh, I had this with the sat nav system.

I embraced being a luddite with my map, but one complex journey from Bristol to past Glasgow and I am a convert, much to my husbands glee and smug 'I told you so-ness'.

I said that if he was 'wasting money on that shite, I was getting clothes as equivalent'

he said, in a hurt manner, "but this is for the house!"

Ha ha Olive - DH bought one last year - reckons is is the dogs bollocks - made our recordable DVD player and surround sound thingy redundant and cost another £50 for the man to come and sort out the TV wiring becuause DH is a numpty and had bodged everythig up and so far we have saved absolutely zero CDs onto it because he is sooo dumb he doesn't know how to do it and I have refused!

Now if I had spent £1200 on shoes and clothes they would have been worn to death and not have cost us anymore money!

I recently had to admit that it was brilliant having a normal sized tv after postponing replacing our 14" one for the past two years or so.

It's good for the soul to accept when you''ve been a berk.

Tell him you are thrilled that he now enjoys school shoe shopping, he can do it on his own next time. wink

Oliveoil Tue 12-Aug-08 09:57:15

oh this didn't costs £1200!!!

It was £300 iirc

he did the same with a DAB radio and everytime I listen to BBC6 he says hahahahahahahahah told you it was worth it

I am a luddite however and would be on a wind up gramophone

Never ever admit you like it Olive, never ! grin

Oliveoil Tue 12-Aug-08 10:42:34

I don't think I will admit it, I will never live it down

(it does mean I can pinch his small ipod thing - shuffle? - and stuff it full of Abba and Girls Aloud instead of his angsty bolleaux)
