Wife, "What's wrong Honey you look so sad?"
Me, "I am just so sorry I bought that damn 308, what a piece of trash can barely keep my shots on the paper, wish I had that 223 instead, and now there is such a special price on that 223 at Mom & Pop Gun Shop. I could just kick myself in the a--"
Wife, "Well, I just hate seeing you so upset over this can't you just sell the bad nasty 308 and go get the 223."
Me, "Yeah, I could do that but I'm not sure I can sell the 308 before the price on the 223 goes back up at Mom & Pop Gun Shop."
Wife, "Well I don't see why you can't get the one you want and get the 308 listed for sale. It will sell eventually, right?"
Me, "Oh yeah it will sell I'm just not sure how quickly, so I guess I've learned my lesson should have bought the gun I really wanted, and not listened to Vince, and Bushy, and Suz."
Wife, "Sweetie, just go get the 223 at the good price and sell the other as soon as you can, OK?"
Me, with a small tear rolling down my cheek, "Oh darling you are the best, I'll get that 308 listed right now and then go to at Mom & Pop Gun Shop"
Ad in the local paper. "For Sale very used 308 rifle bent barrel, broke firing pin $1000.00."
5 years later wife, "Did you ever sell that rifle?"
Me, "No honey but I'm still trying, I just don't understand why nobody's buying 308's, I'm sure it will sell soon, You are so sweet to check on it though, just couldn't ask for a better wife. I think I'll go out right now and put a few rounds through that 308 and then clean her, just in case somebody calls about buying her, I want to make sure she's working OK."
