Bloke buys supercar 'without proper consent from the wife'

Failed to correctly interpret other half's opinion

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

The married boy racers among you should take heed of the possible consequences of shelling out for a nice set of wheels without consulting the missus - something which the poor bloke flogging his Nissan Skyline GT-R evidently didn't do.

The blurb is all pretty standard stuff - £29k for the Bayside Blue, 180+ MPH beast featuring Alpine stereo with iPod connector, etc, etc, - but check out the bottom of the page for a sobering revelation:

Reason for Selling: Purchased without proper consent from the wife. Apparently "do whatever the F**K you want" does not mean what I thought.

Marvellous. Further proof, were it needed, that what your other half says and what she actually means may not exactly coincide. Consider yourselves warned. ®

Bootnote

A turbocharged ta very much to Lu Lu Leung for the tip-off.

The smart choice: opportunity from uncertainty
