Ok, Maybe a little off topic... I bought most of my tools and my Snap on tool box long before I met my wife. Her mind is blown by what some of this stuff cost. She also hates it when I purchase new tools. I point out that once I own a tool, it's forever. I can then do the intended job again and again without spending on the tool.
NOW... Her loves are shoes and handbags. My head almost explodes when I learn she paid 300 dollars for a pair of shoes that are not waterproof, insulated, electrically protected or even warm. And she wears them for a season and then they're gone!! Handbags are even worse.
So tell me, which is the better investment?
Timberland Pros are usually on sale for 79 dollars and I get a year out of them.
Are you saying you think your wife should be wearing Timberland Pros? If you've been married long enough you know better than to even bother thinking about these things, they just are. Being right doesn't help.
In the late sixties/early seventies there was an AmphiCar dealership in San Antonio, which was an odd location given that there weren't any major bodies of water around. At any one time they had maybe 8-12 of these on hand, if I remember correctly.
