Advice Needed

27 NOV 06

What is the best way to ask/tell your wife that you plan on going to Vegas?

a. Buy her flowers and ask on bended knee.

b. Demand Vegas as a God-given right.

c. Call her from Vegas and beg forgiveness.

Immediate help would be appreciated.

(Alternatively, what if she just read it on your blog? Would that be enough?)

We're really talking semantics here. I believe I already acquiesced (SP?) and said you could go. I believe the only thing that is uncertain at this point is who will be footing the travel and entertainment budget, which will probably be a disputed amount, given our disparate stances with respect to money. So the question your friends really should be helping you answer is . . . "How, when I haven't proposed the economic benefit of this trip to my wife, can I maximize the amount of money, if any, she is willing to let me spend on this trip while minimizing the future pain, agony, and repayment factor?"

I must go with option C. Of course, I have been warped by a military mindset that often comes down to "it is easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission". However, The Wife makes an outstanding point, and does, in my opinion, by allowing DrChako to believe that he has ever been able to convince her of the economic benefit of any of his Vegas trips, deserve the title of the ultimate supportive wife. I can almost visualize her patting him on the head and saying "aww...thank you for going to Vegas and saving us so much money!" Now go play with the Lotus that you bought with your past Vegas winnings whilst I get our Au Pair, that we hired with the rest of your Vegas winnings, to make us dinner.
