Wife and Magazines
I apologize for continuing to tease my wife, every couple months, for almost 10 years now, about the time she fell for a telephone magazine subscription salesman's pitch and ended up ordering $1000 worth of magazine subscriptions. She thought it was $29 one-time fee for around 15 to 20 magazine subscriptions, but it turned out it was a monthly fee for a 2 or 3 year term, amounting to about $1000. I got it canceled but have yet to let her live it down. Now anytime we get a magazine offer or something, I always annoyingly caution her not to agree if the price is more than $500.
