    Default Need a person in the archery business

    I need an accomplice. Some of you married guys may understand this better than others.

    I need somebody who works for (or owns) a business in the archery field to send me an email (with an email address from the business) that reads as follows:

    Dear Mr. Carter,
    Congratulations! You are the winner in our Take-A-Bow raffle held at our Fletching Endeavors fundraiser at the Mile Square Park last weekend. You have won a Hoyt Carbon Matrix Plus compound bow valued at $1599.99 which will be shipped to you from our Fulfillment Center in Washington. Before we can send it we need the specifications you want (draw length, weight, choice of three cams & color pattern), then allow one week for delivery. Please visit http://www.hoyt.com/compound_bows/de...on+matrix+plus to view the available options and reply or call us with your specific preferences.

    We hope you enjoy your new Hoyt Carbon Matrix Plus…the strongest, most indestructible compound bow in the world and thank you for supporting Fletching Endeavors.
    Sincerely,


    Name here
    Fundraising Chair
    A logo or banner ad would be a nice touch.

    Why am I requesting this? Simple. I recently purchased this bow and don’t need any grief from the missus. This way I not only get the bow I want but a play day this weekend as well (while I am at the event). She’s seen me win countless raffles and I have found that part of “wearing the pants” means not asking for permission or forgiveness” so there it is. I’m a big fat liar. If she asks me if “these pants make her backside look big?” I instantly lie. "Hell no! You look great honey!" No hesitation. I lie because I love my wife. So…who will help me in this deceitful and victimless endeavor? Anyone?

    Two reasons that won't work:

    1. She's Sicilian from NYC. No stupid.
    2. She already believes I have uncommon luck in raffles as I have been winning raffles since we got married! LMAO I've won rifles, pistols, fishing rods & reels...all kinds of cool stuff.

    Fortunately I am sharp enough to post this request in places where nobody knows me and there is zero chance of a "leak"...now I just need a new archery buddy. There just has to be sympathetic soul out there that understands my situation.

    Default yeah well

    The keys to a successful marriage are:

    1. Faithfulness (don't sleep around)
    2. Caring (be a friend all the time)
    3. Don't be too honest. An occasional white lie that doesn't hurt is not only okay, it's essential to a happy marriage. ("No honey, those pants don't make your butt look big, you have perfect curves!")

    What works for me may not work for you. LOL

    I could help with this endeavor, but you open a can of worms with liability!

    A "company" sends you this letter, and you decide you want another carbon matrix so you sue the "company" for never shipping one to you!

    You have to understand the legal liability this could raise if someone(not suggesting you) decided to use this for different purposes.

    I'm willing to do this for you if you send me an email explaining exactly what your original post explains word for word and that you will NOT sue for anything and that you know you will NOT receive anything from my company.........if you can do that I will do this for you.

    As one married man to another!

    Contact me via PM for my email address!

    Default Very cool! I owe ya one.

    My wife is going thru "the change" and between the hot flashes, depression and moments of insanity...I am walking on eggshells this year. Sure hope this menopausal grief ends soon! Yikes!! I PMed ya. How can I return the favor?

    PS: Sincerest thanks to the moderators too...those mods at Archerytalk not only yanked my post but preached at me via PM for two days too. Of course, I've been married longer than their mod has been alive so he has some learnin' to do.

    I will post photos of the new bow after I get decked out.
