Being tolerant of your partner's "toys"

So going down for breakfast this morning - whats in the kitchen - 2 bikes - one in a state of having new spokes.

So back to the bedroom - look under the bed and having to find a shoe which is hidden by - 2 old projectors, old cameras and old vintage hi- fi amplifiers.

Open wardrobe and 3 air rifles clattered down (propped up in the corner)

Down to study to do some workwhilst squeezed into corner - one wall covered in 6 reel to reel old tape recorders and 3 old turntables.

Mr S has gone out today - to another collecters fair

Am I the most tolerant wife??

Do I deserve a super valentine gift?

Please tell me that someone suffers the same.....

Re: Being tolerant of your partner's "toys"

Let's see, I've got 7 guitars (5 of which are electric), 170 or so stuffed animals (all Steiff), including a full-sized wild boar and an orangutan.

Luckily, the six motorcycles usually don't make their way into the house, though parts often do.

I completely sympathise with you. We once had at home a decently well equipped chemical laboratory as my other half fell for chemical experiments out of sudden.. jaja.

To tell you the truth, while reading the title of the thread, especially the quotation marks, I thought of something more kinky.

I'm not sure why you'd come across his toys if they weren't in the kitchen

ooooooh that's wicked thing to say !! insinuating that womens' quarters are in the kitchen.



Oh yes Smackerjack, you deserve a dozen roses for living with a collector.
(I usually manage to evict some of the collections to the basement, but the gadgeteria has continued nonetheless)

mmmm have you thought of a garage sale ? He could turn it into a business if he has a fine eye for quality items.
I am looking for a Super-8 film projector in working condition, with a splicer.. just sayin'

Most of the toys in the kitchen are mine, as I do most of the cooking!

Re: Being tolerant of your partner's "toys"

My wife is great. She even laughed when she found out that I had drunkenly bid 500 for a Stormtrooper helmet on Ebay. I didn't win it though....I did buy one today though..she doesn't know yet.

Re: Being tolerant of your partner's "toys"

Ask yourself one question: why do men have toys to begin with?
The answer is related to the question 'Why did men invent beer and cell phones?'

Re: Being tolerant of your partner's "toys"

My father is a "Messie". He collects old newspapers, is a radio ham and former computer technician. He never throws anything out. So the house is basically a very expensive rubbish tip, even the garden is full of stuff. When he had the windows replaced (some were about three metres wide), the workmen wanted to take them away with them. Oh no, we must keep them, because he wants to build a greenhouse. They have stood in the garden untouched for the last seven years. And on it goes. You can't actually get into some of the rooms. I'd like to just chuck it all out but among all those things are the family photos, some of which I've never seen, just know of.

So basically I'm trying to say - stand your ground before it's too late. My father's wife is often in tears over the state of her home and has given up on cleaning.

I think she means the forum a-hole. But she knows I'm far too nice for that!
