    Husband punishment

    My husband was with me at JoAnn's the other day and I picked up a quilting book to page through. He said "OMG, did you know that book was $25?!" I said "OK, first, it's half priced, and secondly, I'm only looking at it for the pictures."

    Mr. Smartypants replies, "Oh REALLY, I thought you just bought them for the articles!"

    After composing myself, I informed him that ordinarily, remarks like that would land him back in the car to wait for me, but since this is what I think he wants, he just bought himself ten more minutes in the fabric store instead! Oh, and the longer I spend in the store, the more $$$ I spend as a result, so keep it up, Bucko!

    So I ask you, what kind of punishments do you dole out to your Mister Smartypants?

    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    I don't feel the need to "dole out" punishment to my husband. It's not right nor is it fair.

    I guess I am old fashioned and don't understand this "new age" marriage thing about hiding purchases and punishing one's spouse for something.

    I like bringing hubs along. He has a thing about buying end of bolt fabric. I always walk out with more fabric then I intended to buy when he goes with me.

    Hah.
    But I thought it was the other way - generationally speaking.
    Meaning it was an "old marriage" thing.

    That's hilarious! Mine says he doesn't mind going with me, but I always feel hurried when he's along, so most times I go alone. Get to touch and feel more fabric that way.
