Or...

ARE YOU STILL ON THAT BL--DY FORUM??

So do you get that sort of abuse from SWMBO...?

When I protest that all important things in the universe are discussed from tomatoes on wheels to Shadowline, from electric hedge cutters to wedding cakes, (and yes, occasionally Mercedes ownership!) i get that pained look and a strange rolling of the eyes.

I'm quite mystified by this. Can anyone explain??:dk:.

There is no explanation but....- Is any one surprised by this state of affairs?

I have to access the forum in secret when at home.

Often I deliberately interfere with some household appliance and then I leap into action and dissapear to my garage with said 'non working' device and a determined look on my face.

Little does swmbo know that I have a secret laptop in my garage and it is there behind locked doors that I have my 'fix'.

Since I have taken to this rather unusual method of forum use, swmbo is much happier with me - especially as I've grown so good at repairing household whitegoods since frequenting the forum less. :D

That one
'What are you doing on that bloody iPhone now?'

"Just checking emails and stuff love"

That's generally how my 'cover' goes....

I need to think of something else, she's starting to suss me out

Given how many times the forum has saved us, she thinks that the forum is the best thing since sliced bread!

She hasn't registered yet though...

I used to keep a fallback tab open every time SWMBO approached, but now there is a new question: why do you always change pages when I come near you??

So now I am going to have to try something else - whoops, must go, someone's coming....!!!

Yep! She normally says are you on MBClub again?

Having said that, she's aware how helpful everyone is one here and is grateful for the great advice we've had on stuff that we normally wouldn't know about.

As others have said, accessing it from the phone helps too :D

At the moment it is "aww you and your forum friends" in a sort of "bless" type manner. There is also the occasional p-taking when she talks of "my forum friends".

However, fear that should our relationship ever go from boyfriend/girlfriend to something more official, that her opinion may change.

Only trouble with that is...when she eventually discovers the laptop she might not believe you were just on the forum. :crazy:

So I am not alone then.... now I just do it deliberately even if I am not on the forums or doing anything....

The other one that works ia having your phone/headset on while sat at the desk... I have that as I spend a lot of time on the phones, but it has gotten me of nasty chores...:devil:

So does all this make you think you are the sad geek she says you are, but you know you're not!!?? (if you know what I mean!)

God, are we men or mice??:dk:
