    My wife is not very happy with TFP

    Yesterday she says to me, "You talk to those people, more than you talk to me." I was like "Yeah, and???"

    Apparently that wasn't the right thing to say...

    Oh man... wrong answer. She likes the pool right? Tell her talking to us all the time is what keeps it looking great!

    Re: My wife is not very happy with TFP

    We are still arguing over the water/pool body color. I think the water should be clear and the tan stained pool body is fine. She thinks blue water and white pool body is better. Right now I've got to so there is a little of both, but the water looks green depending on the angle of observation.

    TFP is innocent, but perhaps we should issue an apology for having such interesting forums?

    Re: My wife is not very happy with TFP

    I can not count the number of times I have been reprimanded for being on my phone on the forum

    Of course she also tells everyone we know that has a pool that they can ask me if they have problems

    I get reprimanded for how many times I test the pool. Usually with an exasperated...'again?' comment.

    Pools we can fix. Marriage help we can't offer. I do know that was the wrong answer however.

    Re: My wife is not very happy with TFP

    LOL @ PA. It sounds like it could be time to plan a special date night with the wife, and perhaps a moonlight swim in the clear pool. Being a wife myself, the saying of "If the wife ain't happy, ain't nobody happy," can ring very true. So in the mist of helping others clear their pools, don't forget to keep your wife happy in the process. We all know you can achieve both goals at the same time. .
