My friend has needed a new washing machine for quite a while now, and on friday, it once again needed a belt or part or whatnot. She was going to look at new washing machines tomorrow but her husband just called her to inform he had bought one.
Now, don't get me wrong, she is happy she is getting a new washing machine but not sure how she feels about having no input on what kind etc. And no, her husband is not domesticated, doesn't know the first thing about laundry.
this would not happen in my house, I would not appreciate not being consulted in the least, I would have at least wanted to look it up online before the final decision was made. And besides that, we don't buy big ticket items without checking with each other first, even if it was something I needed.
How would you react? Be glad about getting a new washing machine and leave it at that or be a little annoyed you had no say in the matter?
I guess for me it would depend on why he got it without imput. However that would not happen here as DH and I have already agreed to always talk about big purchases. If DH came home with a new washer unless it was the one that I had already picked out I would be very upset. If I am the one expected to use it i should chose it.
The only thing I would probably be upset about is that every time DH does this he has to buy the cadillac model and usually over spends. Other than that he does awesome with purchases and I would accept the surprise
the more kids we have the more we allow each other to make big purchases-more time efficient I think
I bought the last laundry set by myself, I'd let my dh do the same--worse case scenario we'd return it
