At first I thought the tripod design was a bot flawed, but isnt every pit on a trailer a tripod?
I'm really wanting to pull the trigger, but of course after I posted this, I got home and H.S. Freshman all girls school sends a "send $2,750 now" (only 1/2 what we owe) for August school.
Wife says "That's no problem, lets just pay it and get it out of the way. How much is in the brokerage account?"
I say "Around $3,000"
She says "See, thats plenty"
I say "Um, do you recall why we set that brokerage account up? Remember we refinanced the mortgage and got rid of the escrow that paid taxes. Remember how we have to put money in all year to pay taxes?"
She says "Yeah, duh. I know that. But we have $3,000 and this is only $2,750, so we can build up the cash again and pay the taxes"
Me, obviously grinning like a Chesire cat at this point, because I caught her being dumb, says "How much are the property taxes?" "$2,800 two times a year" she says. "And when is the second installment for this year?" I say. "September 1st" she says.
Then I sit back, and watch her as her brain starts to align the fact we need to come up with $5,550 in the next two months.
Then she gives me an "Oh chit" look.
Guess Peoria Cookers might wait again.
Hope they have a Christmas sale
