Women and their Manky Spending Habits
 
Is every woman wired to go bonkers with the credit cards and spend spend spend like the world will end tomorrow ? or is it just 99% of them and only 99% of the time.

From Angela Merkel to the fit bird next door , maybe this is why we really have a lack of women in football management ? Even Thatcher used to bang on and on about financial propriety yet spent money like it was burning a hole in her pocket. And dont even get started on the shoes, handbags, make up, and accessories. How many pairs of shoes does a woman need ? PS. And before i get accused of being sexist, just checkout the British Retail Data and see who is doing more spending, men or women ?

I never understand how they have money at the end of the month or aren't in more debt. They seem to constantly buy things they don't need.

Most women no nearly all women can go out with 50 and spend 100.

They've also got a canny way of being able to 'justify' all their spends yet watch like a hawk any money you spend on yourself. Fuxk that!

Clutter, clutter and more clutter. Constantly having to sneakily chuck away old stuff to make room for whatever bollocks she's come home from The Range with. Half of it ends up sitting in a carrier bag in the cupboard under the stairs, not to mention the array of photo frames we have dotted around with no ******* pictures in them.

then there is the one i know who bought some purebred ratbag ankle biter mutt for thousands. The dog is probably Millwall inbred and thus permanently sick, costs a couple of grand a month in vet bills and is now ancient and probably in permanent pain. Sense says...time for the big kennel in the sky, she says...ah poor honeybun, i will just fix this latest medical emergency and then he will be ok. Insurance company told her to p1..soff with her ratbag ages ago.

Mrs A is way better about not spending money randomly than I am.

I put this down to her being an inherently tight northerner.

My ex used to always bullshit about the actual cost of things. "Oh I got these shoes in the sale only 30 quid down from 100!" or some such bollocks. A few days later I would find the receipt saying 100 quid. I think she actually convinced herself that she was only paying the fantasy price in the end.

Seagull-Eater_ Miss_Selhurst_ SE19_denizen 14-12-2015 10:59 AM

men's barber : 10 quid , 10 minutes.

women's hairdresser : 300 quid , 20 minutes.

Big-Griff 14-12-2015 11:00 AM

Are you lot men or mices?

Gotta show them who's boss!

Put my foot down with the wife during the summer and told her to get rid of at least half of them.

She only has 14 handbags now.

What the BBS would have looked like if it had existed in the 1950s.

Blokes move into a new house : unpack your beer into the fridge, turn on the footy, chill.

Ladies move into a house : rip out the perfectly good kitchen, bathroom, windows and put in replacement ones 'just to stamp your mark on the property'

Or the classic, she pulls a new top or dress from the wardrobe and claims its old and something she hardly ever wears!!

There wouldn't have been an Eagle in red and blue atop the page avatar for a start.
