    ***I mean "this" not thois lol. And the end of option number 2 should say "but is not a surprise"***

    Anyway... So what would you choose?

    Here's an example:

    The wifey bought me an Android speaker dock for work as a Christmas gift. She knew I had nothing loud to play my music with in the shop and that I wanted something to solve this problem, however, this problem isn't a huge problem and I can still get by the way I am now. She spent $125 on this thing but I feel she could use that money on something that I want/need more. I.E. Tools, clothes, shoes, camber kit for my GSR, Muay Thai gloves, and Muay Thai shorts.

    Make your wife take that back and its gonna be a world of shit. Maybe not now but any number of years later it WILL come up. I'd be happy it was something I could actually use/ even want.

    She already left to take it back lol. She agrees with me. So she agreed to just get me a cheaper one and use the rest of the money towards some winter clothes that I desperately need lol. We're from So Cal and my wardrobe does not consist of anything to handle these Mid West winters lol.

    Well when you play basketball, you wear basketball shorts. Am I suppose to do Muay Thai in Khakis? Currently I use some cheap shorts from Title MMA. What's wrong with wanting some quality shorts that's meant for the activity i'm doing? :shrug:

    Oh, and for the record, I ended up keeping the docking station lol. Turns out, what she got was a steal considering they don't have much of a selection when it comes to good docking stations for Android devices...

    I was also expecting something along the lines of 'would you rather fight a 6 foot tall snapping turtle or a 6 foot tall praying mantis with a stick that's sharp on one end'.

    I'm in the "get me what I asked for camp". My wife is totally the opposite, she would rather I buy her something that's a surprise, and would rather do the same for me. This is probably the reason we have tons of shit laying around the house that she bought for me and I never used.

    Also another of the many reasons we're getting divorced, lol...

    I do like a surprise but I do like the get me what I asked for. Some how I get clothes even though I specifically ask not to get them.
