    so, the wife asks me yesterday, Saturday to go to the store
    and buy her a dvd called the grey.
    on the way there, i detour to the local arcade i decide to have
    a play on a £1 or $1.5 per play slot machine .
    now this is only something ive done twice in the last year.

    so, i admit i spent more than i meant to on this slot machine
    £80 - $124. but i won £257. - $400
    as soon as i got that win i left . meaning my sum total gain
    was £177 - $275.

    i then bought her a £20 bunch of flowers $31
    a kfc bucket which ide never even tried b4 £17 - $26
    and a dvd called the grey £15 - $23
    + i gave her half what i had won £75 - $116.
    and remember ive only played this machine twice in a year.

    and what did i get?......thanks..... a kiss.... fck no.....
    heres what i go, typical woman focusing on the negative..

    she said ....so you won £257 - but spent £80 to get it.
    meaning you only gained £177 - $275
    what would you have done if you hadnt won... and right
    there is the typical womans trap...

    did i mention the last time i played this same machine a year
    ago i won £250/$400 and i gave it all to her to buy a new fridge
    freezer, she didnt complain them. so why now ?
    ughhhh..

    Never ever explain the details to a woman!
    Even if she "really is interested" in it.
    At the end they all react the same, sooner or later.
    Trust me...

    I try it all the time.... "They will change. They might understand".
    Yeah sure...

    She probably has more of an issue with you gambling, because this can be quite destructive if addiction sets in. She said nothing the first time because you got away with it and won. This time she sees that you gambled again and may think you are becoming addicted.

    Its nice you bought her something nice with your winnings, but women do tend to only see the sensible moral side of things.

    No you are right and you didn't get what i meant?

    I meant women tend to take the moral high ground on stuff i.e drinking too much, gambling, not taking things serious enough etc

    I can relate to this brother. It was last year when I won a mini-lottery with $600. Bought my mom and my wife a dozen of roses each and a pizza to come with it and a pile of DVD rented (Approx $90 spent) then I went home. Gave them both $100 each and then I got the same shit. They were so mad at me that I shouldn't have bought this stuff and instead focus on the bills. Told them I'll pay the bills this month no worries (I have a regular job that time -- salary enough for everything).

    All I can say is that women are practical nowadays. All of this financial crisis and other unwanted events are occurring. They cant buy their make up too lol

    I probably would have pulled the "I won $320 and I only put in a $1" to avoid the whole situation. I hate lying, but I hate being unappreciated and berated even more.

    Sometimes women just want to argue, and they'll find any reason at all; or just make one up out of thin air.

    They're not content just being happy all the time. The emotional part of their brain gets bored. They enjoy riding the emotional rollercoaster. You'll notice that the guys who get the most girls don't just make the girl happy: they make the girls happy, sad, angry, scared, releived, etc. over and over again.

    yeh i hear that, dont get me wrong i see where she is
    coming from, what if, and i get that part.
    but im just trying to tell her, ok twice in 1 year i went
    a bit nuts on a slot machine, the same 1 twice in 1 year.
    both times i came out on top £200 the first time which was
    last summer and i didnt keep a penny i just bought a new
    fridge freezer with it, 2nd time today making it almost a year
    later £170 gain. i gave her half + the flowers and a dvd.
    so yes i could have lost, but i didnt, isnt that enough
    probably wont play it again for another 6 months

    This lucky events of our lives should be celebrated and not to be disposed. Now Im not saying that women are evil but they really should set those attitudes aside and should look into the positive part of the event..

    Your probably right, I know my wife would have. She would have known better than to believe that I would have walked away after playing only one dollar.
