There's less than 5 minutes left in the battle. Both teams are almost even in the points. You're in a DD and just spotted a cluster of three enemy BBs camping in such a way that there's no way not to hit at least two of them and sink one. I'm 12 km away (torp range is 7km and need to be 6km for accuracy) ,I turn on speed boost and the distance slowly closes, 10km,   9km.....  8km..... 8.5 km..... I'm in the perfect spot and just waiting for to get a bit closer when all of a sudden I hear a big bang and my doorbell rings. It's my wife, it's raining and she needs me to help her bring in the groceries pronto. You can all guess what happened to the battle...… yip, yip, yip.....

I'd say it's a fair bet anyone in a relationship has had a moment like that.

What was your wife doing out of the kitchen in the first place. She should have been in there making sure you had plenty of snacks and drinks for your gaming session.

Thou hasn't experienced the wrath of a wife at the door with 6 bags of groceries, SUV trunk open while you keep her waiting another 5 minutes as you finish a battle.

Remember, the battle on the screen may have ended but the mother of all battles may have just began

How many times has your wife walked in while your playing saying "Are you still playing that stupid game?".  

Here is some advise for you guys. You don't want to mess with them. There's no winning

Had it happen a couple times. 

I explained why I couldn't just pause the game, and she suggested I keep my phone handy. Now she texts me when she's leaving from somewhere when she wants immediate help upon arriving home.

That way, I know not to start another game, plus I have time to put the dog out back. (Front door, somebody arriving home, food smells, and full arms that can't grab a dog, all combine for absolute chaos! :Smile_teethhappy:)

Good news is she will probably let you keep your gaming rig.

I haven't had that happen, but in my old guild in World of Warcraft one our healers went AFK mid-fight on a boss fight because his house was on fire.

Didn't tell anyone. Just got up and left, leaving us wondering why we weren't getting heals. Until he got back and told us his house was on fire.

It's was okay though, he lived in a condo complex and the fire was like, 2 or 3 houses down.

I don't get that, she KNOWS I'm still playing that stupid game lol.

I get, "the word is secrecy, I need a 4 and a 5 letter word. I'd use a hint, but I'm low on gems...."

Neither of us can afford the mortgage singly, so we'd have to sell.

We haven't owned it long, but by the time the dust settled and the lawyers got paid, I'd probably end up with just enough for a killer gaming rig.....

You don't even have to be married to experience that. They will bring up something that happened thirty years ago and beat you over the head with it.

You could try saying 'Thanks for getting the groceries, honey. Come in, get dry and make yourself comfortable. I'll run out and bring in the groceries myself in five minutes."  YMMV, depending on how martyry your wife's mood might be at the moment.

I didn't want to mention the times the cat jumped onto my desk and started whacking anything moving on the screen. I thought I'd leave that to it's own thread....
