It is not a very good plasma, but you got a really good wife!!! You can always buy another TV in the next few years easily, but you won't find another wife as good as her so easy! So cheer up mate!

Reminds me of the time when my wife bought me a Samsung DVD709 back in the day. I had to wait until I'd checked out t'internet to confirm the breeding of said player before I thanked her. She still hasn't let me forget that :)

Thats one thing that should not happen, I dont tell my wife what type of shoes to buy or come back with something and expect here to wear it. Likewise she doesnt buy me any gadgets unless I have specifically asked for something, i.e. she is buying me the Xbox360 for xmas. But on the same hand, you should recognize the fact that she was thinking of YOU. But I feel really sorry for you, I mean a Goodmans :eek: :eek: :oops:

hehe...

lol, you lot and your "wives". I've been with my girlfriend for a year and will be moving in with her shortly. Well no, she'll be moving in with me cos its gonna be my flat. She certainly won't be calling any shots in so far as telling me what can and can't be in the living room (a 42\50 inch plasma)..

She also knows better than to buy me something of such specific nature. Just as I wouldn't buy her a handbag or something like that.

Lol, I was with my mate in glastonbury a few months ago and he bough his girlfriend this disgusting handbag that was based on a sewn up pair of denim jeans, it looked vile IMO and I'm sure she wasn't too chuffed when she got it but I haven't mentioned it neither has she...

Personally I reckon your misses was bang out of order for getting you the plasma without consulting you first on the one you wanted!

Its the same thing for games consoles and what not. If your granny got you the plasma then thats different its what grannys do. You know like knit you jumpers you can't stand when your a kid (well mine did anyway :eek: )...

But ya girlfriend. You had to put her right, otherwise it could happen again in the future and it could potentially destroy a relationship, if something like that happened more than once.

you did the right thing bein straight with her!!!

I would be going crackers inside if I kept that in, and I'd prolly blurt it out during an argument at somepoint in the future even if it was months down the line. It would sound a lot worse then I tell ya!

Take the bloody thing back, tell her how important it is that you get the right one, and that the goodmans one she got just isn't the one you were after, and explain the comparison between her having a nice handbag that she thinks is stylish (panasonic) and a handbag made of half a pair of denim jeans (goodmans) plasma.

be all nice about it and act like a little naughty boy, thats what i do in these sort of situations, dunno if that'll work, talk about it straight after giving a good orgasm in bed or something and ya both all dreamy and knackered, women are as receptive to common sense as blokes after a good hour in the sack...obviously can't be sure what your relationship is like but hey its not that big a deal!

The rules on receiving gifts are set in stone- one should be grateful for the act of giving and worry about the suitability later.

This isn't really a problem with the Mrs who some years ago agreed to buy me a phono stage. The original plan was for us to go and select one that she would then pay for. Events conspired against this so she eventually went out on her own- and yes I was worried. She selected a Creek OBH which wasn't on any of the deliberately left shortlists. When asked about this she replied "it sounded better than any of the one's you picked out."

And do you know what? She's right :).

Aah the innocence of youth...

I'm betting that in 6 months she's redecorated the whole place and rearranged the furniture at least twice. :rotfl:

I got around the whole "wife" issue buy buying my self a 42" panasonic plasma about 7 weeks ago and then three weeks ago propsed to the gf (she said yes btw).
Anyway I now have until next July to get all the gadgets I need before I start needing to consult with her indoors lol. Kidding aside (and incase she ever reads this), she is just as gadget mad as me and even trawled round shops for months with me before I decided on the panny.
With regards to the goodmans, could it develop one of those intermitent faults that only you have witnessed and need replaced due to this?

I agree with him though, I would have it out with her now.

What is she into?

Shoes?
Clothes?
Holidays in Ibiza?

Go and buy her some sh*tty pair of shoes, or a really chavy top, or book a weekend touring the old sewage works of Istanbul.

She may then get it.

Edit: If you are into your Burberry etc. sorry for the chav comment! ;)
