C'mon....Fair is fair right?

November 2nd, 2006 at 11:00 pm

Ok- DH and I have a little difference of opinion...and it has to do with our businesses.

He does wood. I do puppies. His business makes WAY more than mine. I am limited to the remaining 6 puppies for any profit...then my business is over for 6 months.

DH just called to ask if I would 'trade' one of my male puppies to one of his co-workers for a 'headache bar' (something for DHs truck.)

umm...ok. No problem. Says me.

BUT- (being the business person I am)
Then "I" own the headache bar and if YOU want it, the wood business will have to buy it from me for $200 (cost of the puppy)...

Sounds fair doesn't it???

What does DH say?

"Fine, then the house fund will have to pay the wood business for all the firewood this winter"....


Sigh...well, there goes another male puppy--- and to a good home, to a nice family. I guess thats fair afterall.

maybe i could still negotiate for $100...hmmm...

    I think you are right!

    I do, too. But being right isn't always worth it and you'd probably get more grief from DH than its worth.

    I don't even have an opinion on this one, but I am fascinated by this concept of having to do business with a spouse....

    It seems like it can be quite a volatile cocktail sometimes.

    of course, DH and I were both kidding...but that doesnt/shouldnt deflect from the fact that I AM RIGHT!!! lol. and Im still pondering the $100 negotiation!!

    i'm with you, TR, meet him halfway! sounds like the bar thingy he's getting will help both his biz AND the house (since you get some of the firewood), so why don't house and DH biz split the 'price' of $200?
