Wife called me on the Number of Bikes????

Over lunch today, my wife advised that she counted seven bikes in the garage, and she thought there were only supposed to be four. I explained that three are staying, one is my son's and the others are close to getting sold. She said' "Don't even think you are keeping four!"

This evening when she was out in the garage, she counted again and advised that there were nine (said she missed a couple when she previously counted). She just nodded her head and walked away.

What do you do to keep the wife / SO from asking these sorts of questions? Or from geeting upset over these sorts of details? Oh and I did just deliver one to DFW area this past weekend (whew...).

She did make some very good thin crust and all fresh veggie pizza tonight. No complaints on her cooking.

it will be the end of you if you let that woman dictate the amount of manliness in your cave.

She may not use the space as much as you do but the garage is half hers.
It's the congestion that bothers her.
If you want her off your back,let her know that she is important too by compromising
Move most of the bikes in a storage unit.What she doesn't see wont bother her..as much.
