When good people do bad things (they get blogged about)

If 'one' has not yet been shamed humbled enough into presenting 'one's' wife with a birthday present, and - Oh, excuse me, you just tuned in? Well, let me specify it was my fortieth birthday - are you still with me? Good, because the next sentence is going to begin with 'and', and I do want to make sure you are with me.
And...then 'one' is so bold as to brag - to 'one's' said still present-less wife - about what a great deal he found on 'this incredible70's vintage tube stereo! !!! !!!!!' on craigsbigfatfreakinglist, for the cash price of - well, let's just say, the price of a super duper used laptop -

Well, then 'one' cannot really expect his wife to share in his excitement or tolerate his pouting about him not understanding her lack of excitement.

Can one?

Death to idiots is a bit harsh...especially since dh is my brother!

But I must say...a 70s vintage stereo?

He should be torchered...flogged...whatever. What an insult! I'll get him at Christmas! Wait until you see what you get sis-in-law!!!!!
