    Apparently it doesn't work that way.

    I'm pretty sure I can't be the only one whose wife does this. She goes on Amazon, puts a few things in the shopping cart and then walks away from it knowing that the next time I need to order something I'll see them and think well shoot, she probably needed that for something so since I'm ordering something I have need of might as well just go ahead and order her stuff too since she probably just forgot to hit order. We had a conversation about that the other day, and she told me "well I didn't order it so I can't be blamed". That got the wheels turning in my head, and when that happens usually something bad happens.

    I got to thinking, two can play that game. So, a Nox 800, with pinpointer, headphones, and the works ended up in the shopping cart, just over $1,000.00, and I walked away. A few hours later she's telling me she needs a new printer for her home business, and of course I tell her do what you gotta do, knowing the trap I've set. So she selects her printer which was just under $300, puts it in the cart and I nearly have a heart attack laughing as she looks at the total price of nearly $1300, checks the cart and sees what I added in there. I told her well if you order it that means i didn't and I can't be held responsible. Guess what got taken out of the shopping cart and who doesn't have an Equinox on the way. Oh well can't blame a guy for trying right.

    Interesting game but a potentially dangerous one as well.

    My wife did similar to that over the last ten years and racked us up close to six figures in debt.

    I do that to myself, I'll get some idea for a project, drop some supplies in the cart and leave them there, and if next time I see them I still think it's a good idea I'll go ahead and order them, if not then I've saved myself some money and also from having random parts for something I've lost interest in laying around.

    I collect military relics, mainly German and American, but interested in others as well, pre 1945 .. Always interested in adding to my collection

    I have the opposite problem. I'm on Amazon everyday and put things in the cart and then at 1am after a few drinks hit buy. The next week is filled with "What did you buy now? When things arrive" Most of the time I forgot and can't give an answer....... Hint: Once in awhile buy something she will like and say "But it's probably for you dear"

    Definitely a dangerous game to play, but I tend to learn the hard way!
