    I would (begrudgingly) get rid of the tools. Or see if she will let you keep around a "select set" of them.

    Man, the things we do for a Tesla

    Guy: Honey, are there any repairs about the house I've been neglecting ?
    Honey: Are you kidding ? Wait right here, I'll get the to-do list !
    Guy: Ahh, snap! I forgot -- I sold the tools. So Sorry

    Btw, the OP is two steps away from a Haiku ;-)

    I am glad I have a wife that would never test me like this.

    If I did, I am not sure what would be going. It is hard to imagine it would be my tools.

    That's a good looking set of tools. You should take up a new hobby - classic cars. Otherwise look at this way: if you love something, set it free. (Sorry, that's all I got.)

    Huh? What's the big deal with the tools? Is that toolbox in the kitchen or bedroom?

    If you were close I would be generous and offer $1000.

    Surely you would not have been so short-sighted.

    Did she set you up ?

    Doesn't matter now.

    When my wife wasn't home the buyers (husband/wife) showed up and his wife jokingly asked if all the shoes were for sale too.

    I ;) as I told her it's included in the price of the tools.

    Few minutes after they left my wife was all :D as she pulled in the carport and saw clear access to her shoe closet.

    As she stepped out of the driver's seat I acted :cool: and jumped right in and did a launch in reverse:D.

    Haven't been home since. Airbnb tonight.

    Oh sh*t.......the "location" app:mad:

    Moral of the story: what goes around comes around. You want to sell my tools? Sure let's do it. And I'll sell your shoes that you almost never use and just like to have "in case" of this or that occasion (just like the tools).

    Why couldn't you have moved the tools and/or why couldn't the shoes have been moved to a different location?
