    Yes, standard for husbands who are willing to give up financial control, which I am. I hated paying bills and managing the household finances when I was single. I was terrible at it. Now, I just have to work during the week and enjoy Saturday mornings detailing the vehicles.

    Yes but hereís the thing I detail full time and my wife is a teacher. Iím not going to lie Iím horrible with money management and she is very good at it. She writes out monthly budgets and post bills on the refrigerator so we wonít forget. Myself on the other handle only remember car notes and line of credit payment dates other than that she is my reminder. On the other hand she does have what I call ball out moments. Keep in mind sheís a teacher and Iím a detailer. I make her yearly salary sometimes in less then a month or two but she will go out and buy cars and Iím looking at her like really....thatís when we get into financial arguments like the other night she wants to buy a Tesla and I was like you better stick a Tesla photo on the dashboard of your Prius and keep moving. I understand happy wife happy life but my god she can be a unhappy wife every now and then lol Iíll live. Our dinner dates even stress me out lol

    Wow, 5.00 for iced tea and 5.00 for Coke. That is harsh. I can deal with getting gouged for food if it is good food but 5.00 for a Coke is excessive. I always drink water. A true test is what you order when someone else is paying. At company events, weddings, etc. I also drink water, even when someone else is paying. I feel it would be hypocritical if I changed my behavior because YOU are paying. That is a character trait.

    And for the life of me... I've never understood "why" they would want to join and post spam... no one in their right mind would actually purchase or interact with anting a spammer posts.


    What strikes me as funny (unbeknownst to these spammer scumbags), is this is probably the LAST forum you'd want to spam on.

    A whole community of guys & gals with an almost (OK, full-on) OCD-like attention to detail.

    Dumb asses.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    The most likely explanation is that when they join these forums and spam their website it increases their "relevance" to the search engines as now their website is mentioned hundreds or thousands of times across the internet. Nothing increases your search engine relevance like having your site linked through many non-related sites across the internet by different, seemingly unrelated people.

    You make your wife's yearly salary in a month or two? I mean I realize that teacher isn't the world's highest paying occupation but what?

    Well not as much as yours obviously. But I've been retired since I was 34 and that was 19 years ago. The last year I worked, I made $550k after bonus. I got lucky though. I married a woman that makes $300k a year and I've been fortunate enough to raise three kids and play golf every day for basically the last 19 years. My kids are now 20, 18 and 16. We started this business for our middle child because he still lives at home and goes to college and we wanted him to work. We're general partners in the business and it's on track to do $60-70k this year. I pay him 30% of gross receipts every week and the rest we leave in the account for expenses, taxes and future college tuition. I haven't taken a cent yet, aside from the occasional lunch or what have you small purchase. If we continue to stay on this pace or it improves as summer rolls around, I'll probably take a small weekly paycheck to cover my time and aggravation.
