This. 

We've got one of those credit card accounts where we get a few hundred quid a year back on it. We pay for everything using the credit cards and have it set up that they get cleared off every month.

This is all a bit strange - I seem to be in agreement with the various Rangers fans on here. We've got separate accounts and a joint account which we both have standing orders to pay in to cover bills including the credit card. We're fortunate in being able to pay off the credit card bill in full each month so also use one of the cash back versions. It might sounds a bit odd but stems from when I moved in with her and working from one account seemed a step too far. Works for us - if she wants to spend money on handbags and I want to spend silly amounts to watch Motherwell then we can't complain as long we can pay our way.

This is 100% the correct answer as to how it should be done. 
 

As for my ranting today, new couches got delivered this morning. These are the couches that she picked, that she’s now decided she doesn’t like.

Christmas coming up soon and I am clueless as to what to get her. She has (as far as I am aware) dropped no hints. 

Having run out of patience I asked her outright. Anything she wants? "No". Anything she needs? "No".  Anything she ever remotely likes the idea of? "No". And then she hit me with "I'm fine. Just don't bother getting me anything".

Oh no you don't. Not falling for that one.

Couch update - she actually likes the couches she chose, now that she’s had 24 hours to get used to them.

Good man, you’ve learnt the lingo. Now, if it wasn’t for the fact that you can’t buy her shoes, you’d be in good (their favorite bleeding item and don’t you dare get any she hasn’t specifically asked for). Consider something like a nice wee bracelet with an engraved charm, and have the date you met her engraved on it. Mucho points, impossible to hate and simple to do (if you’ve paid attention).

Give her time, the opinion in a month (or just after whatever the return period is) will be the final.

As a woman I hate shoes and jewellery.

Anyone ever seen that program "The Hit List" ?

It's a show about music/music intros. That small description indicates that you clearly need to listen (or be able to hear) the show.

I don't think I need to tell you what goes on as I try to watch it.

They just think it’s ok to interrupt what others are doing whenever they see fit, because whatever they want is very important. It doesn’t work the other way.

Lastnight, she phoning her maw from the car..... Maw answered and nothing could be heard. Pair of them continued to dial eachother with silence coming through the phone and the wife shouting CAN YE HEAR ME!!!! repeatedly before hanging up and trying again. A phone call rally of about 5 each before eventually a connection is established..... Then both of them give it "dont know what happened there, that was really weird" before the maw offers "its cloudy here maybe its that" and the wife responds with "aye probably, although I didnt really have any signal so thats probably not helping either"
