Title: This site will cause my divorce
Post by: c.lfrost on March 20, 2019, 01:13:42 PM
My wife says that if I buy to much more laser stuff she is going to have to move out. She said she will site this forum in the divorce papers as the cause. LOL

I cannot tell you how many things I have learned from going through these discussions. Slate, and Glass.... oh I want to do them so much.

Think she would count a 3D laser as more laser stuff????? what about CNC?

What I'm saying is thank you for the Add and for encouraging my addictions.

I find that if you produce enough thing relative to her interests and of sufficiently good quality the they calm down for a bit. I usually have a little stock of things just in case... making stuff for the in-laws also works a treat!!

yes... Lots and lots of gifts. I'm thinking if i make stuff for her classroom and coworkers it will keep her on my side for now.... Until i purchase the next item I want.

The best situation is when she buys it.
The next best is when she suggests you buy it.
The third best is when you save a little each month to get it. Shows your maturity and long term commitment.

None of the above apply to me!!!

I have a Business fund that I use for the most part, Till i find something on sale that i do not have the funds for, then i borrow for the house funds and turn zero profit till it is repaid... I'm just lucky she doesn't charge interest.

When I burned out my last laser. ( cheap china box kkmoon laser) I had already excepted 3 LARGE jobs. so i had to make all these purchases out of the house funds lol. I swear that if im not up and running soon, she may have my kids break my legs with a bat to send a message.
