Yes Nod What Jim said. 

You already know she'd have a problem with you spending that much on tickets. Then you compound that by hiding it from her. I'm not sure how you guys do your finances, but yeah, if I were you I'd sleep with one eye open and start the car remotely for a while after she finds out. No Nod

Maybe you can get out of this unscathed if you banked some serious hubby credits. Be excessively romantic between now and when she finds out. That might just keep you out of the woodchipper. LOL

OMG! Eek  I never thought about the wood chipper being the source of revenge!  YIKES!!!

  I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!

      You're what better informed people call overconfident.

          If my wife found out how much I spend on the lottery she'd kill me.  LOL!  I have a newly developed system and am confident I can hit the jackpot.  I play Supercash and run the same ticket 5 times every day.  6 of 6 pays out 350K, 5 X 350K = $1,750,000...Even if I hit 5 of 6 that would be $2,500!  If I hit the jackpot I'll post my strategy here.

          Look. Just walk in and wave the tickets around proudly.  If you get any lip just take away the credit cards for a month or two!Big Grin 

           

          Id like to have the power to force those words out of Mr. Hen Peck's mouth toward Mrs. Rooster and then give him control back and watch the results! Banana

            " I know I'm not alone."

             

            And it's not just here. I've been on other hobby-related boards, and sooner or later someone says 'how do I hide the all the new _______ I'm collecting from my spouse, I don't want him/her to know how much I'm spending'. Doesn't matter if it's audio gear, flashlights (yes there are flashlight collectors), whatever. 

            Those threads always remnd me that I'm happy to be single.

              Nah. Being completely sincere I like this thread and I like your comments, and your wife probably will have a good sense of humor about this if you win. When I say that, I'm assuming you aren't spending your retirement or emergency savings funds on this. But just in case her sense of humor goes on hiatus when she finds out, it never hurts to bank those hubby points. Just saying...LOL

              I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

              The odds are about the same.

                Almost everyone has some sort of vice, per the opinion of someone else. I learned long ago not to throw stones at glass houses because, indeed, mine is also made of glass.  I do, however, occasionally throw pebbles at friends windows!   Big Smile

                      I've said it before and I'll say it again. If you spend a thousand bucks on the lottery, give her a thousand bucks in cash. If you can't afford to do that, then you have no business doing it. When she finds out{and yes she will eventually find out}, she has every right to amputate your third leg figuratively speaking.

                        Yes mypiemaster she would always find you out.  However, when she's out spending that $1000 in the middle of the day while your at work well lets just say you will never find out.Big Grin

                          What century do you think you're in right now? Which wife do you know of that's out spending thousands of dollars in the middle of the day while DH is at work? Your other comment was similar to this so I know this isn't a fluke. Newsflash, this isn't yesteryear. Most women have a job outside of the home now. They don't spend their days shopping on the husband's tab nor do they spend it on the couch eating bon bons. 2015 and we're still dealing with this misogynistic crap.

                            ROFLMAO! I didn't even think of that one. It's a good point. Hide one thing and you might get accused of hiding something else. On the plus side though, he may get a free pass when she finds out he's hiding tickets instead of another woman, so this may still work out in his favor.

                            I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

                              I only took your credit card away for a month babe.  Words like "misogynistic" show competitive weakness on your part so now im docking you two months.  Pray i don't alter the deal further.   As far as wives i know alot of them but you missed the point.  It don't take a $1000 to get a room in the middle of the day.Wink

                              As far as time frames you referenced ill bring us back to the 1980's.  Capitalism, Higher Interest Rates, Heavy Metal Music, Real Man Stock Car Racing, Real Man Football, Savers over Spenders, Liberals Smashed, Conservatism Reigns, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Clint Eastwood, Larry Bird, And Ronald Reagan Baby!   Anyone using words with "ism" were weaklings to be laughed at.Big Grin
