I have been doing a bunch of selling, and trading over the past few months. And it seems that a bunch of people want the stuff sent to their work addresses. How many of you out there have stuff sent to work because your better halves would be pissed about you buying stuff?

well uhh...yeah.... I do that...

Of course, then I have to try and sneak the 100 pounds of ammo past the co-workers.

I have stuff shipped to me at school to avoid my mom-same difference. But in my EE experiences, I agree, lots of stuff Ive shipped at gone to people at work.

All of my cigars are shipped straight to my office. It's not that she doesn't need to know, it's more about not giving her the ammo to be a bitch about.

And I would rather have it delivered to work instead of it sitting on my front porch all day.

I have stuff shipped to work so that my UPS driver doesn't leave 1000 rounds of ammo on my front door stop.

A friend and I combine orders to save shipping and also half as many boxes come to the house.

When I was in college I had stuff shipped to school to hide it from my Mom.

Does that count?

I went with other beacuse I got a P.O. Box

When no one is home during the day, I'd rather have it safely in my possession at work than on my doorstep for any other person to snag.

I have stuff sent to my work address because there's no one at the house during the day to sign for stuff.

It gets sent to work because that's where I spend most of my time. I don't want to have to go to UPS to pick up all of my missed packages. Plus, picking those notices off the door gets old.

+1 it is annoying and it seems like I get my stuff way easier if I have it sent to work. They deliver it to my DESK!

Yes, but my my boss made me stop after my mail order bride arrived. Apparently they shipped her by freight and she didn't ship well.
Link Posted: 4/14/2006 9:04:29 AM EST
No . The only things I ever hide from her is kewl shit she may claim as hers . But I only wait until I have a back up so I can go " That's OK I got thhis one for you ."
Link Posted: 4/14/2006 11:41:13 AM EST
I don't, I just get home before she does
Link Posted: 4/14/2006 11:48:57 AM EST
I do it for the children
Link Posted: 4/14/2006 11:52:12 AM EST
In the past, yes. For two reasons, one is sometimes I did not want the former Mrs to know and because I did not want packages sitting on front porch, back porch, driveway or a wherever for someone else to take.
Link Posted: 4/14/2006 11:54:53 AM EST
ok people send me 5.56 or I am telling ya wives about this shit!
Link Posted: 4/14/2006 12:11:04 PM EST
Don't want it sitting on my doorstep while everyone is away......


The fact that my wife may not find out about it is purely coincidental !!!
Link Posted: 4/14/2006 12:16:13 PM EST
Never done it, never will. My wife is fully aware of what I buy and knows why I buy it too.

Who wears the fucking pants in your family anyway?

Always a sign of a healthy relationship when you have to sneak around on your wife.
Link Posted: 4/14/2006 1:39:57 PM EST
A private mailbox from a Mailboxes Etc type place is great. My wife just about never gets the mail (she doesn't have the key), so I can pretty much have whatever sent there, and they hold it for me. Don't have to worry about it being stolen, no worries about co-workers seeing my stuff.
Link Posted: 4/14/2006 1:41:30 PM EST
she's GONNA find out, and it's always worse the longer you hide it. besides, it's my money, it didnt cost her a thing, and that's that

Ditto.

Why does the poll not have a simple "NO" choice?

EXACTLY

Man, I would, but my workplace won't allow it. Sometimes you just gotta hide your firearms acquisition activites...lol. Now, I rush home and try to get to the doorstep first.

I never did it to hide stuff from the wife (I was single) but I used to have all my CMP orders delivered to my office. Luckily people there were cool with it.
Link Posted: 4/14/2006 6:04:41 PM EST
No office, no job, no wife.

So, "other."
Link Posted: 4/14/2006 6:10:08 PM EST
If she doesn't know when I got it, or how much I spent, Wives have a tendancy to use that kind of stuff for ammo when it comes around to "me too" syndrome. The less she knows, the better.

Never had it shipped to work yet.......but if I had an office, I would probably be buying a lot more stuff.
Link Posted: 4/14/2006 6:12:00 PM EST
Im single but i would say 25% of the stuff we sell online goes to work addresses

id say possible theft is the biggest reason cited wife not finding out is the 2nd
Link Posted: 4/14/2006 6:21:55 PM EST
Sounds like a poor marriage to me
Link Posted: 4/14/2006 6:27:02 PM EST
Jeez, if the wife does not stumble over some ammo box or package every few weeks, she thinks I am messing around on her and spending my gun money on a floozy. I HAVE to get something, see how that works?

She actually could care less, some spend their dough drinking, some on vehicles, some on strange pussy, I spend mine on gun related stuff. My hobby is probably safer then any of the others listed.
