I’m not talking about big stuff like when you embezzled from your employer or when you stuck it to your wifes sister. I’m talking about less serious stuff. The little things in life. Do you do it?
The reason I ask is I have tentatively decided to lie to my wife which I realize will be the first time in a 15 year relationship. The deal is I’m buying a truck and she insists I sell my car. That sounds reasonable but I don’t think I could sell my car for more than 8 or 900 dollars but I think it’s worth way more. Even though it has 200k and it’s nearly 20 years old, it’s been a gem and it still drives great.
I decided I will tell her I put out an add but not actually do so. I may even tell her I lowered the price after a month or two to buy more time. After enough time goes by, she should be used to seeing the car in the driveway and just kind of forget about selling it. We’ll see how it goes and if I actually stick to my plan.
