I went shopping for a walkie talkie to use at work. My husband offered to go with me. He suggested Specialty Sports because they have a lot of hunting supplies there and hunters use walkie talkies, right? So, we go in and wouldn't you know, the first stop is ... those big fancy gun safes. I leave him there and look for the walkie talkies. My husband asks for me and we are informed that 1) they don't carry walkie talkies, and 2) I would need a license for a VHF. Not for work I say, so long as I'm in the store. Nope, the dude says, gotta have a license. SO WHAT!? You don't have any, so shut up and let me get out of here to find a real store that DOES have them! But no, my husband has to have a clip installed on his pistol... AND he has to check out those room-sized gunsafes. Mr. Information opens my husband's dream safe and gives him all the specs which has him drooling but I just roll my eyes.
Do you think all our guns will fit? he asks. Why does it matter? If you don't have enough room you'll just buy another safe right? And if you have too much room you'll just buy more guns until they don't fit, and then you'll have to buy another safe... right?
The guy patted my husband on the shoulder and shook his head as if to say 'she's on to you man!' and departed. He knew he had lost the sale.
But honey, it matches the gumball machine! my husband said in a last attempt to convince me that we had to have the wheel-less armoured car. We actually managed to get out of there spending a whole paycheck, the the cost of the belt clip. Thats a first for my husband, and I'm sure he didn't like it. No doubt he'll get his 'fix' later on in the week when I'm not with him.
