# Thread: The Wifes Logic !!

1. ## The Wifes Logic !!

Had a conversation with the wife earlier about shooting and it went something like this :

Wife:
You spend money on your shooting don't you?

Me:
Yes

Wife:
How many times a week do you go?

Me:

Wife:
How much does it cost in diesel and ammo each time?

Me: Difficult to say depends where I go but for sake of argument say £15 each time?

(This is where it gets scary !)

Wife:
And how long have you been going out 3 times a week?

Me:

Wife:
So at £15 a time 3 times a week which puts your spending in one year, approximately £2500…correct?

Me:
I suppose that would be about right.

Wife:
If in 1 year you spend £2500, not accounting for inflation, the past
20 years puts your spending at approx £50,000, correct?

Me:
Correct

Wife:
Do you know that if you didn't go shooting so much , that money could have been put in a savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 20 years, you could have now bought a Ferrari?

Me:
Do you go shooting?

Wife:
No

Me:

Was this before or after you mentioned our trip this to Grayrigg this coming Sunday?

Very Good Dave,

i find it hard to even start on about shooting as here in doors has my ballocks in a bag somewhere.

bob.

ps: a ferrari is not that good cross country either ?

4. Not much room in a Ferrari for the dog & shooting gear better off with a Hilux

5. I take it your mrs dont go shopping 3 times a week then, how many pairs of shoes and hand bags do you need, mrs said said the dreaded earlier, does this make me look fat, said no bab its the fat that makes you you fat ,went in one ear and out the other just the same as you dave

6. The same applies to beer. I reckon we could have had two more houses by now. But they taste crap.

7. That's excellent !!!!! Good come back. What was her reply? Give up at that point by any chance lol

8. Brilliant mate

9. If you take into consideration the carcase money I probaly cover my fuel and ammo so my out goings wouldnt be alot, for you lot out doing reds and sika must get a good pay out and make a profit, sorry I forgot nobody shoots deer for the money

10. Dave,If you had a Ferrari you would need the twenty year old blonde to sit along side you !!!!
