Is communication with DW a bad thing?

So I did all the research I could think of, combed the forums for info and decided on buying a yamaha 2000 generator, meanwhile during a shopping trip to Costco the DW sees a Champion 2000 for $499, 'oh thats a lot cheaper' she says. How do I explain this I've tried the Chevy Cadillac thing and she is still thinking about that and I have my fingers crossed that she will get it.

"How do I explain this ..." ? The answer is you don't because you cannot. There is no answer in the world that a man can give to a woman when she starts asking for your rationale in explaining a decision you made solely on your own - just cannot be done.

Find a music she hates.

Turn it up really loud. That's the "Champion 2000", you explain.

Now, turn it down nice and low. That's the "Yamaha 2000", you explain.



(Said completely tongue in cheek - I don't know the dB levels of each of these.)

Especially when you are trying to explain/justify why an expensive tool is better than an inexpensive tool.

And Visa Versa when we (ladies) are trying to explain shoes!
Although I'm pretty proud I made the decision and purchased, by myself, with help from folks here...a brand new surge protector! It can be done!

Shoes do not make noise or generate electricity or air pressure or draw blood if improperty used Therefore men are not interested in them and have no desire to communicate with women when they are purchasing them.

This simply confirms my first post to this thread.

Yeah, but they seem to often want to know why we need so many and spend so much money on them, similar to your expensive, way too many tool thing. You should see my garage! OY EE VAAAAAAAAAy!

On Monday I returned the champion 2000 to Costco, just couldn't accommodate our CC Silverback...we went ahead and purchased the Honda 2000i.

What? You mean communication between the sexes remains a mystery?

Funny how you fail to mention how many pairs of shoes you have or show us a pic of your closet.
