Hi all,

I want to disappear for an hour tomorrow afternoon. In the evening, me and the mrs are going out. Can anybody suggest excuses that I can use?

That also means he actually has to go and buy something. I suggest a tin of Cadbury's Roses with all the good ones removed.

i make my bookings for the daytime so i use excuses like the car has not been running right so im taking it to a couple of garages so they can have a look , when i get home they wont me to pop it back about month later to see if any change, trust me it always works, also a dentist appointment she dont check that one either, or better still start an arguement about 2 hours prior to booking then say im going out for a couple of hours to clear my head

You could join or try a gym, you can dissapear for an hour or two and come home knackered and freshly showered without raising an eyebrow.

I once organised a punting trip to the UK by sending myself an email from another address I'd set up specially. It purported to be from someone in my class at school who was organising a reunion dinner. He had already got together 15 of us and surely I could come too. Showed it to Mrs B, and bless her heart, she said of course I must go.

A bit late for tomorrow but you need at least one hobby. I can say I'm off to the golf club to hit some practice balls or have a lesson or off to the lake to try to take some photos of the ducks or the autumn foliage. I think the joining a gym suggestion sounds good.

But think it through beforehand, because when you're out in the evening with your wife she will want chapter and verse regarding your friend's marital problems. ;)

Yes the golf clubs can come in handy here. A few years ago I visited a mistress on the pretext of playing 9 holes of golf. The funniest part was having to wheel my golf cart round my mistress's garden to make the wheels muddy!

That is the sort of careful forethought that really makes alibis succeed. I suggest driving ranges as a non-muddy alternative.

my biggest problem is returning & smelling of shower gel. Its either that or smelling of another woman. So, i now take a bar of unperfumed soap with me & leave it there. And regarding excuses to the wife, not a problem cos i now punt during extended lunch hours at work. Flexi-time is great init? LOL

I think WGs should start to stock girly things like handbags and perfimes then when the guy comes to punt he can buy a gift for the wife at the same time. ;)

Good Luck! But remember your Mrs might get curious and start hunting in your secret places for the mysterious xmas present you "will have brought so early"! So if you do have anythng hidden, make sure it's hidden really well!!

Easy - tell her you've hit a kerb in the car or a bad pothole, and it's knocked the tracking on your car out of alignment. This of course can be dangerous on wet roads..... ;)

And there's a Q at the tyre place....

Seemples....

You could develop a stiff neck, needing regular visit to a physio, no one is remotely interested in anyone elses health problems, and its not far from the truth, I use it occasionally.
