This is the transcript of a conversation I have just had with the missus. Thought it was mildly amusing... *Background - Discussing the fact I am a bit Skint because it's christmas etc etc etc* The Girlfriend says: no sympathy.... lol you decide to spend all that on your car Alex says: Hmmmm. Ahh well. The Girlfriend says: one day you might learn its not all worth it.... hopefully Alex says: Hmmm, I enjoy it. It's no different to having a horse. The Girlfriend says: i dont spend any money on the horse Alex says: You need to look after it, pay for the vets and blacksmith fees, fuel it, just so you can ride it. The Girlfriend says: yeah but you spend more than just on the stuff you HAVE to get... you buy things you dont need to Alex says: So you NEED new bridles, coats etc etc etc You never EVER buy them because you just want a new one? The Girlfriend says: i barely ride the horse thank you! Alex says: lol I'm just using it as an example... See my point? All hobbies cost money End of. The Girlfriend says: nope Alex says: Sadly, mine is particularly expensive, but I do enjoy it The Girlfriend says: but ok Alex says: You don't see my point??! Are you actual retarded? The term 'Are you actual retarded' ended that conversation.... Hmmmm.
