Marriage 101, Lecture 769: Why gadgets matter, or, how to waste money

SH: Don't you want that cool pepper mill like Bonnie and Gary have?

Me: Not for $80.

SH: It wasn't $80. That was the meat thermometer. The pepper mill was only about $40.

Me: That's still too much.

SH: But I like it!

Me: If your mom and dad want to give that to you for your birthday, that's fine. But I don't think it's a good use of our money.

SH: You don't like gadgets, do you?

Me: Not for that money.

SH: But gadgets are cool!

Me: Not for that money.

SH: It's a guy thing.
