The following is an example of one of the many conversations held between Mrs. C & myself over the years... Sadly the results don't vary much (I've translated the conversation from our Trini dialect for easy reading):
Mrs C: Vinneee
Me: Eh? (hunched over laptop trying to complete World of Warcraft quest).
Mrs C: You know that guy from my office who is always travelling? He's heading to the US again.
Me: 'K... That's nice...
Mrs C: Anyhow, I told him to bring down a few things for me. Nothing much, they'll just come up to about $900. (about US$143.)
Me: ...'K... whatever (getting "ganked" by enemy player).
Mrs C: Yeah, so I told him to get me...
Me: (Unable to concentrate on enemy encounter) Growl...
Mrs C: Alright, bye (leaves room).
Me: (Several minutes later) Huh?... Wait, $900!?!
Moral of the story: Pay attention to your wife. They're smart & they know exactly when to strike.
