@Djacks88:  That’s not fair to you! I think you handled it fine! Even the “I wish” part was an informing statement that even though it’s a nice thought it isn’t gonna happen. You weren’t embarassing at all.

Wow, he’s being really sensitive.  It was a joke, and one that someone else initiated.  Little too much machismo in that man for my taste.

Yeah the lady is the one who asked the awkward question.

I don’t get why he is so mad/embarassed by what you said. That is something I would jokingly say to my Fiance all of the time and he laughs about it.

I guess I’d ask why he’s so bothered because I’m completely clueless as to why he would be upset.

That’s really… weird. I really don’t see what’s to be upset over?

@Djacks88:  You bruised his little man pride. He wanted you to say “Oh no, he doesn’t have to ask me, he’s the man!” You didn’t, his ego got miffed. He’ll get over it.

By putting in the “I wish” part, you clearly were on side with the idea that was presented by the Salesperson (and they were just doing their job… trying to sell a Bike).  You were just stating that it wasn’t practical / affordable (whatever) at this time.

I am older, and I would have to say that if you & your guy have 4 Bikes between you, and he is a Father of kids then in some ways he is ALREADY LUCKY

(Someone needs to tell him THAT PART)

I know plenty of Wives / GFs who made their men sell off the Bike(s) once there was kids.

He’s being silly, IMO

You were far from embarassing him / being controlling… or whatever he thinks he’s heard / experienced.

We have 4 what…. bikes or kids?

Either way, he sounds far too senstitive. Is he often ’embarassed’ by you opening your mouth? He sounds annoying, the silent treatment is for kids on the playground, not grown adults.

@Djacks88:  the lady was out of line, not you. I would have said the same thing.  Unless he’s embarassed that you pointed out you already have 4 bikes?

@Djacks88:  Id let the awkward meaness stew. I would just not talk back either. Thats just ridiculous having him blame you, for absolutely nothing. Even if its a not-so-manly when a wife/gf/fiance says “no”… I mean seriously?! The sales person was joking and likely knew the answer prior to asking you the question. if you had come to buy, I think it wouldve been more obvious.
