Ask Gearographer: New Skis

Dear Gearographer
I really want some new skis this year. I don’t need them but I want them. How do I convince my wife this is a necessary expense?

–Anxious in Utah

 

Dear Anxious,

How do you usually persuade her? Sounds like you need to Man up and get this done as ski season is about to start. I would buy her a pair of the most expensive Ladies skis you can find, then once she compares them to yours; you’re in. On the other hand that’s a very expensive way to go about this. Another option is the opposite of Man up. That’s right: begging, crying, whining and sulking usually works for me. I know it’s not pretty but it works.

Sincerely,
Gearographer
