Default I am so bummed....

My wife just took her brand new bmw X5 and backed into my miata. Trashing both. I'm thinking 2k on the BMW and 1k on the Miata.

The BMW has both sonar and a backup camera. And it's my fault because she said I usually didn't park there.

The shop took 8 weeks to do the body work last time, so I pretty much lose the Miata for the summer.

We started the summer by her saying I could not spend a dime on the Miata because we had too much tuition debt.

Now we've just blown 4x what I wanted to spend on the Miata!

I am seriously depressed.

Sounds like the wood chipper for wifey.
Sell the Beamer, no more tuition debt and more cash to **** away on the Miata.

Why even buy an expensive car up in an area where salt will turn it into a rust bucket in 5yrs anyway?

WTF? Is this a joke?! Tell her to drive her X5 and shut up and then spend whatever you want on the Miata. When she starts driving some cheap '90-ies sedan then she can make remarks about what you do with your Miata ...

My wife never tells me what to buy and what not to buy for the cars. When the boxes with new shiny stuff arrive -> she even shows interest in how the parts work, etc.

How long have you been married buddy?

Take control like right ******* now.

I'm a few years in and it's over for me. I do what she says...when she says it...and how she says to do it.

I wish the first thing I'd done after carrying her over the threshold was to set her down at the dining table, slap my ***** down and say: "look...only one of us has these...and he's in charge."

I didn't...and now those ******* are in a jar in her closet.

So who's got the ***** in your household?

25 years this year (it just seems longer).

She is an Irish red head with the temper (and passion) that goes with it. The good with bad, as it were.

We got a killer deal on the car. The total cost of ownership on the car was less than all of the competitors, which was a surprise.

With where we live, you have to have one really solid 4x4 just to get in the driveway.

Sorry, no sister. But there are many other women in the world like that. You just have to choose

Then show some temper and passion too. Next time the Miata comes in the picture you say - "You have fun with the X5, I'll be buying for the Miata whatever I find necessary. Period. No further discussion on this subject"

So how is her crappy driving your fault? I'm sorry, but thinking that fancy technology is a replacement for looking in a ******* mirror to see what is behind you is retarded..and lazy. The other thing is, if you can't see behind you, should shouldn't be driving something that ******* big....what if that had been one of your neighbors kids? Yeah...that's what I thought.

Women + SUV = instant fail.

btw...my gf also drives a turbo Miata....no big shitty oversized piles a crap will ever find their home in our driveway.
