AITA For blowing up on my wife for spending 8k on a motorcycle for my stepson?

I Have been with my wife for over 6 years. I have a 17 year old stepson and a biological 22 year old son. The family had ups and down just like any other family. My son is getting married in Feb. I have put some money aside to help him out as a gift from me for his wedding. I've already talked to him about it and he and his fiancèe said they appreciate it very much. My son deserves it because before his mom died he took over her care and spent nights at the hospital with her. He cried many many times because his mother's death broke him. I'm glad he found happiness again.

  • My stepson is a motorcyclist/ It started off as a hobby. He has posters of all kinds of motorcycles, pictures of famous racers and motorcyclists. He has a group of friends he calls brothers and they ride together and wear some kind of bracelets that represent the group. He always does 3D arts and logos which I find stunning to be honest. He's talented no question about it. Anyway. Before Christmas his mom told me she wanted to get him a motorcycle as a Christmas gift and he'd love it so much. I told her I can't afford it. And that maybe she should think of another gift for him.

Everything was fine until Christmas day while we were exchanging gifts. My stepson received a small box from my wife that had a key in it. We were confused. She told him to go outside and we all followed and then I saw a brand new motorcycle in the driveway. I started wondering where she got the money I didn't bring it up right there and then. I waited a bit.

I asked my wife and she told me that she took 8k from the account to buy the motorcycle. I effing lost it. I blew up on her and asked if she was kidding me. 8k that's the money I put aside for my son's wedding. She said that I needed to calm down but the money was already gone. My son showed up and asked what was wrong. I couldn't tell him his stepmom took the money that was meant for him to buy an expensive motorcycle that I'm sure my stepson will throw in the garage just like he did the old ones in a very short time.

So far he had two motorcycles that ended up being damaged. Those motorcycles cost us so much money Other than paying for spares and parts that needed repairing.

I told my wife she has two days to return the motorcycle and get the money back and she defended herself saying she can't do that because it'd be devastating for my stepson and that he'll resent me if he knew I made her return the motorcycle. I told her that I was ready to talk t

People with loud motorcycles are just toddlers of the road screaming to get their way.

Motorcycles should be inspected annually, and removed from service if noise is above 85dB 20 feet away at any throttle position.

People with loud bikes are selfish tools so self-absorbed in their ridiculous lifestyle they are just a rude joke.

Rattling windows. Assaulting the ears of others. That takes a special kind of pathetic loser to drive straight pipe.

To the motorcycle thieves that tried to steal my bike today.

Thanks a bunch.

Whilst trying to break off the disc lock you managed to dent the brake disc, sever the brake cable and knock out my dashboard and speedo. My bike was marooned in ASDA car park because I couldn't ride it home and the RAC does not cover me for vandalism.

I already pay Β£1,000 per year to insure a Β£4,000 motorbike - because of the high amount of motorbike thefts in my area. If I make a claim on my insurance for the damage you caused then my insurance premiums go North and I will still have to pay the excess of Β£500.

I'm a working man. You stole directly from me. This isn't a victemless crime because you think my insurance will pay for it and I will be OK.

You are scum of the Earth and I hope your Christmas will be as rotten as the one you gave me.

A guy rides his motorcycle through the border from Spain to France every week carrying two bags of sand.

The border guard searched the bags every time, but never found anything, so he had to let him through. The guard has his last day at work before retiring and the guy comes to the border again, carrying his two bags of sand. The guard says "look, man, it's my last day, I'm not going to bust you. You're clearly smuggling something across the border all this time but we never find anything, what is it.". The guy says "I'm smuggling motorcycles"

Popular/Unpopular opinion on new motorcycles vs old motorcycles.

am I the only one that feels disconnected with the new gen motorcycles? I am all for improvement and new tech, but these days it seems like we are being brainwashed with hp and torque figures. I'm not exactly old,24 years of age to be exact, but I remember growing up with my aprilia rs 125 and any problem could basically be rectified with a screw driver and a 10mm spanner(Over exaggeration) These days a bit of grime on your kickstand sensor could have you stuck with no clue on the matter. I recently changed fork seals on my 09 gsxr 1000 (I know, it's not exactly latest and greatest tech on it) and man let me tell you, this was a f'in mission with all the special tools required. I'm not insinuating old is better, but it sure was simpler and definitely gave a sense of connection to the bike. Just my 10 cents on the matter, i'm interested to hear some opinions.

(Edit/Update) I see a lot of agreeing to disagree, but makes sense on the matter. Guess just enjoy what you have,right?

You own 4 motorcycles, no car. When asked if you have a car, you say no. Is this deceitful? r/datingoverthirty discusses.

The comment that started it all >I don’t disclose much about my financial situation until I reach a committed relationship level. I own 4 motorcycles and zero cars. I live in the city. When asked, I say I don’t own a car. I have no credit history because aside from my student loans, I’ve never had debt. I view it as a waste of money. I rent a place that costs more than most mortgages in my area. I just tell people I rent and don’t own a house. I don’t need to work but I have jobs in community that I do because they’re meaningful. So when people ask me what my job is I tell them all my odd jobs, Soccer coach, DJ, writer, artist, etc. Everyone rolls their eyes on the first date. People don’t know I’m worth millions. I’m damn sure not going to advertise it either.

.

Dishonestly by omission is manipulation

.

From what I've read, you tell women that you don't have a car and do odd jobs for a living. Without further explanation, you sound homeless.

.

Person 1: Do you have a car? Person 2: No. There's nothing unclear about this in anyway > Person 1: Do you smoke pot? Person 2: No. I do cocaine, but Person 1 didn't ask me about that so I was not dishonest!! >> This is why you ask the right questions. It's really actually a very simple concept.

.

So if they ask you if you have a car, you say "No, but I do have a motorcycle? > As I've answered in previous comments. I would say - no, I don't have a car. And if they ask further which is most of the time, I describe my situation.

.

What 37 year old is a DJ? Dudes that are attention seeking validation. Nothing about your description sound confident or stable
