Dude... why is this a big deal? Go shopping with her, or do it yourself if it is causing such an issue! But talk it through with her if it is causing such stress to you, and probably to your relationship as well. Don't let your "need" for a refrigerator for your hobby be a strain on the relationship.

Sorry dude, probably gonna piss you off too but... This is also your house, no? She probably wants you to be involved in the process of remodeling. Even if you don't want to be, just pick the second thing she shows you. The first one is too obvious. Who knows, you might make her happy enough that she'll make you happy enough.. Gigidy..

Yeah, that was my first thought too.....Then I thought, meh, what the hell, this is a beer forum, not a marriage guidance centre......So in the end I just told him to piss in his fridge. That seemed somehow the more appropriate response.

Been married 30 years. This isn't stressing our relationship. Just venting.

Here's what I did. I signed up for email updates from Sears, Home Depot... everywhere that has appliances. Kept watch for the appliance sales. When the big July 4 sales came up, showed my wife a frig that was $1,000 of regular price. TOOK HER by the hand to Sears and helped her pick the one she wanted .
Now I have 2 beer refrigerators in the basement, one with shelves for bottles and one with no shelves for fermenters and kegs.

You know...

I know it's a joke, I know you're not *really* telling him to punch his wife, but the freakin' misogyny has really gotten out of hand lately. It's just not funny, or acceptable. This *used* to be an incredibly open, friendly community, but I couldn't imagine what any female brewer (and they DO exist) would think when they see half the **** that gets posted. Sure seems to me like HBT is now completely overrun by a bunch of ********.
