My how the playing fields have been leveled! Traditionally the common belief was that women were the primary individuals that would sneak purchases into their home without letting husbands know. Whether this has any statistical backing is unknown, but regardless it seems that men are finally taking it to the competition. We surveyed well over 100 women with husbands who enjoy board games and the testimonies we heard we both shocking and sad. Take a look at some of the responses yourself!
“I felt ashamed. It was like I didn’t even know who my husband was anymore. Sure I had been hiding new purses under our bed for years, but finding a secret door to an underground warehouse full of unopened games in my own home…I just don’t know how to cope with it.”
“The signs were there. The day he stopped complaining about my own spending habits…I should have known.”
“We had a plan ya know? We had a budget. It wasn’t like we didn’t talk or anything. I found a few crumpled receipts, but tried to ignore it hoping it wouldn’t last.”
“The day his mom brought a package that was delivered to her home I knew he had succumbed…”
“I mean since when does he get excited about furniture or shelving? From IKEA…we don’t even live near an IKEA.”
”Like being on sale matters if it is every single day...”
“I checked the bag and saw a new board game for my kids. I smiled just thinking about how much he loves our children...until I noticed the other bag in the corner with 6 games of his own.”
The women were a divided on whether or not they would confront their husbands. Some declared with rage that they will not be outspent vowing to “take it to another level”.
