Caution: Nemesis HP manual not appreciated by wife

Postby KYLakeKiter » Fri Sep 14, 2012 6:22 pm

So I got a deal on a 14m Nemisis last week and I was pretty sure I told my wife about it. While waiting for it to get shipped this week I downloaded and printed the manual for the kite and the bar to do a little read ahead. I have been working nights this week, so I hadn't seen my wife during the day. Left the manuals on the table and didn't think a thing about it.

Woke up this morning to a slightly disgruntled woman and was asked "what is that you have printed out over there?" I was a little groggy and my initial thought was that I was in trouble for buying another kite (it happens). Finally we got to the root of the issue which was actually girls in bikinis and thongs on the cover :lol: BwaHahahahaha! :lol:

Being a Martian, it never crossed my mind that the Venusians would be offended by such a thing. Heck, we have Victoria's Secret catalogs sitting around all the time, so why would a little bikini matter :roll: Oh well, what can you do.

If you work for Best, don't take this as a complaint. Keep up the good work. :thumb:

One thing I have learned is that there is no figuring women out!

Just remember you are always wrong. Life gets easier after you admit that.... :)

if a man says something and there is not a woman around to hear it, is he still wrong?

OK this is some funny sh.... I am a counselor at a k-12 facility-which keeps me hopping. My lunch time gig is to sequester myself in my room and plug into kiteforum and eat my lunch. Wasn't having the greatest of days until I read this post-thank you!!!!! I have a very ultrasensitive wife as well. I bought 3 Hp's in 2010 and remember downloading the caltalog as well. Left it on the kitchen table and heard about it the next morning-so I sympathize with your plight. she has busted me several times when she finds the history for "most sexy kite pic." on the computer.

Women just need a lot of positive strokes...

The amount of trouble you are in is inversely proportional to the time it takes her to respond 'nothing' to you question of 'what's wrong?'.

I must be a lucky man since the only time I even see a hint of scorne is when I suggest that my wife wear what the girl in the kite photo or kite video is wearing...(specifically Susie Mai in her painted birthday suit) or nice shorts or nice bikini top etc... Other than that I'm pretty much free to browse what I want, and even share what I think of their assets etc.... Lol

The funny part is I buy what I've suggest she wear (not the painted on wetsuit), for her birthday, and she loves it... She is always sexy but now she's a sexy Kitegirl!

I feel for you guys, It would suck to have to hide who I am or what threads I read, though I am sure the makeup sex is good... no?

Cheers

Pete

It's kind of funny because when I am watching kite videos on the computer, my wife actually calls it "Kite Porn", so maybe it wasn't the bikinis she was jealous of afterall :lol: Glad everyone got a laugh at the post. :bye:
