    RANT: Purses!

    Ok, so some of you have wives that got Coach purse coupons this weekend, well so did MrsBrianHos! Anyway, she went to the store to "save" us some money. You all read the tire story on the way home, but this is where it gets even better.

    Today I get an email that a large purchase has posted to my card! Ohh, yeah that must be the 4 new Ultra High performance low profile tires this trip cost me. No problem, let's open it up to make sure they have the amount right. NOPE! It was the purse she bought. A freakin purse was more expensive that 4 new very high quality tires! It is a PURSE!

    ugh! Women. I need a beer.

    Wow. I dont know what to say. Im just glad my wife buys cheap purses. My mother however buys Louis V stuff that costs a fortune. My poor dad. There isnt enough nookie in the world to douse a wallet fire like that.

    Luckily my wife gets hers at those purse parties. They have the knock offs there and she picks up 2 or 3 a year and that gets her by until the next year.

    Divorce splits everything down the middle with the women getting both halves. You have to be smart about this, hire a hitman.

    Re: RANT: Purses!

    My wife, Angie, is a Coach-fiend as well. Wait til she buys a $150 wallet to go in the new purse.

    I told her that if she added up the cost of all the wallets that I have ever owned in my lifetime, it still doesn't add up to the cost of her one wallet.

    She's also an IPod-fiend. She's owned something like 8 different IPods, and is always on the lookout for the newest one.

    But, we all have our vices. She gets her purses and Ipods, I get my hookers and blow. It all works out in the end.

    My wife actually carries two purses. She has a big one with work papers, mittens, a scarf and some other random stuff. Then she has a smaller purse that has her phones, wallet, and make-up. The combined total of the two purses could feed us for weeks.

    Yeah, remember that when you're sleeping on the couch.
