as opposed to treating me like im a bit dumb that is?

dd1 was bought the dr who files dvd magazine yesterday as a treat for being so good at school <i had problems with her the day before going back after lunch>.

the first issue was on offer for £1.99 so thats no problem but after that they are £7.99 each issue and are out every two weeks. if you subscribe and get them delivered they are only £5.99 and you get free gifts. i told dh that i was thinking about doing this as dd1 adores dr who and i thought that we could put them away and use them as a treat system <i.e. she gets them when she is really good>.

he said no way because he had read the thing i was looking at and it said they would charge my debit card £11.89 every two issues and thats nearly £24 per month, he could get gym membership membership for that apparently.

i tried to explain that they were only out every two weeks so that would be £11.89 a month not every two weeks but he just kept talking to me like i was a naughty four year old who wasnt listening angry

Try having a MAN explain it to him! lol DH will "listen" to me say something and nod, then when some random man says same thing a week later he will get very interested and say "really? I didn't know that!" grin

thats a good idea iwantasecondone but hwo do i explain it to the other man so that he can explain to dh? lol

its my debit card <we have seperate accounts for spending money and joint for bills> so ill just go ahead and order it. and he will have to live with it.

what has his potential gym membership got to do with his daughter's treat?

My dh does this sort of thing all the time! He's a teacher and I'm getting fed up of having everything explained to me 3 times like he is talking to a particularly thick Yr 8!!

i have no idea dropdead i think he was just pointing out how stupidly expensive the magazine was and even @ £5.99 its still expensive but you get a dvd so i supppose not too bad!

i dont think he even wants to join a gym as we live near one that has no membership fees its payg.

because of exactly what you have just described! definitley a man thing smile
