Before l tell everyone my storey l must ask; what are pocket protectors??? Great stories everyone, l have laughed alot during reading these. My storey is pretty similar actually. l never tell my girl how much l pay for shoes or cloths. lf l pay over $500 for shoes, trousers or a shirt (this is always) l never tell her this. lf l tell her l paid over $500 for shoes there would be a fight: yes very loud voices [all from her]. l always try to avoid the topic but never can. (l sympathize with you Kai and Foxx). She states that l have too many cloths and that 10 pairs of shoes is more than enough and very obsessive and selfish. (What she doesn't know is that l have well over 10 shoes [try 10 dozen ] and have no plans in stopping soon). l have to hide all my shoes. Once you reach over 50 pairs they become easy to hide because [to most people] all shoes look the same). The day she discovered l had a wardrobe full of expensive designer labels was when she really hit the roof. l did a good job in keeping the labels secret but she had to find out eventually. Anyway; there are so many good shoes to yet be purchased, l can't stop now. (Lobb, Edward Green, Cleverley, Berluti, etc). She has great style as well (very 1940's) but she isn't as obsessive as me. She says that people on these forums are selfish people who have their priorities out of wack. Her points are: Why buy 100 pairs of shoes when you only need 5 pairs [and could give extra money to charity or starving nations] Why are you wasting your time speaking to idiots about cloths and shoes [what a waste of time] She says she respects me less when l pay a high price for cloths/shoes: she says l don't deserve to be in a postion that l am because l waste money. She wishes l was poor and had a low paying job so l will get a grip and wake up to myself [and value what is really important]. Strangely enough, l agree with her almost entirely.
