    The same week that you trusted a shipping company with your fragile trophy mount you also drove across multiple states to pick up a rock for your wife.... I dunno what y’all call it up there but folks around here say that’s a textbook case of a man who has done gone and gotten himself p***y whipped...

    These Social Security Administration calls lately... "Your SS# has been flagged and a warrant has been issued... blah blah hold for an operator..." I received three of these calls yesterday so about twenty minutes ago I received another one and held for the operator. Apparently the US has outsourced the SS Administration to India, eye roll. The operator, I mean Federal Agent, asked for my name. No problem, Joseph Biden, thats B-i-d-e-n, people call me Joe. Operator: okay sir and your zip code? Me: 37188. Operator: And what City is that sir? Me: District of Columbia. Operator: And what is your SS#? Me: C'mon man, I can't give you that over the phone. Click.

    So talked to my friend he claims he can reassemble and repair the pike, I don't doubt him he put a head back on a walleye for me and it looks better than when it was first done, thing is he hates replacing fins. I feel bad because he won't charge me for repairs. So I have to go catch a small mouth he can use as a competition fish and let him keep it for 2 years. I want a big fat Mille Lacs smallie 21.5" or more.

    Wtf... the cashiers at the gas station, cabelas, and the grocery all said “have a nice weekend” to me when I left today. Are they just f’ing with me because I was in work clothes and clearly had 3 days of work left before the weekend or is kwanza or some other BS holiday I don’t know about this week?

    Trying to replace our car the drunk driver totaled. Got the insurance check and am happy with the amount. The used car market sucks at the moment though. Not much out there without spending more money. It's over priced due to the pandemic and the shortage of used cars.

    1. We can spend a little more money and buy a half wore out car that will probably start having problems and worth nothing a few years from now.

    2. We could spend a little more money and buy a newer car with 30.000 verses 100,000 miles. Britney would finish college without calling me cause the car is broke. I wouldn't need to spend more money getting it fix or God forbid... replaced. She would have a good car to start her life out after college.

    The wife likes #1 cause it is cheaper " NOW". She is old school penny pincher. I like #2 because it is a win/win. No headaches for me and good for Britney " in the long run ".

    We are in the talking/arguing phase where I plead my case. I talk ... she doesn't listen. She talks... I've already made my mind up. So far it looks like a 50/50 chance of getting impeach from the bedroom. It is going well !!!!! :)

    Thank your wife for her valuable input and then explain that car buying is a man's duty and that you'll handle it from here.

    Stay close to an exit when you do!

    She is not the one doing the roadside recovery and repair. I got so lucky I had very limited incidents when my kids were in college.

    Tell her its option #2 or she is the one on call when option #1 breaks down. Option #2 makes the most sense if you have the extra cash, but, if your wife is like mine, she won't see it that way until the phone call comes. Be ready to duck when you explain it though. :lol:
