Most of us are pretty mellow about the way our hard earned money gets spent. We don’t make too much fuss about the fact that entirely too much yogurt (a “food” that no self-respecting man would ever touch) ends up in the refrigerator week after week, and we don’t even make a big deal of the fact that, on average, we only see about 4 or 5 percent of our take home pay after we sign the back of the check. But there are some things that women buy that absolutely drive us insane, especially if they take out personal loans to do it.
Most of us hold on to the delusion that if we work hard enough and save our nickels, at some point we’re going to be able to do or buy something fun. Women, it would appear, were created for the sole purpose of making absolutely sure that never happens.

Here are the 3 other things that women I know have used personal loans to buy, driving their husbands bat shit crazy in the process:
OK, you’ve got us, ladies. Women are practical, and men are jerks. Jerks who really don’t like financing practical things when there are so many fun things that could be purchased instead.
