but i guess they just cant comprehend the quality
being such an important factor vs cheap kmart knives the way many of
us can here
Dude, that was uncalled for. I comprehend quality just fine.
I also believe in buying quality stuff, and it'll last you a lifetime. I have done this in many areas. Just not kitchen knives.
simmer down pilgrim. maybe i didnt say it in such an eloquant way, but for the most part i wasnt that far off base.
Try to single "us" out as unable to understand or whatever compared to "the rest of us here" smacks as an insult. You and Beth are different then my wife and I. You said yourself that you had buyers remorse when you stopped by. You even mentioned you could have gotten a nice 19" LCD monitor for that. Or a color laser ptiner, etc.
of course! everyone is different! der... i have buyers remorse for ALL
purchases i make, regardless of what i'm buying.. it's always easier to
buy then it is to save... thats where the remorse comes in play. at no
point was i remorse over the quality of knives i purchased.
I don't think it's dumb that you:
1. Wanted a really nice set of knives
2. Thought about putting it on your registry
We were more laughing at the fact that you become obsessed with things to the point where you decide to spend big bucks on something just so you can satisfy your obsession and then more onto the next thing. That this all started as "what should I put on my registry" and finished with you just buying the set for yourself. And hey, that guy was probably right about putting such expensive things on your registry. The guy was also a salesman.
a salesman, yes, but i was the one who walked in his store, and also i was
the one who asked all the questions, in which he answered. during my
entire time with him and in the store was he ever pushy or asked me if
i wanted to make a purchase... that was purely my decision.
You and Beth cook more then we do. You have more TIME to do this. You have more of a "food fetish" in general more then we do. You like uncooked fish products.
true. we do love food, not sure it's a fetisch. MANY ppl in the world enjoy
food and cooking way more intensely then we do.
and as far as 'sushi' goes, i'm sorry, but millions of ppl in this world we
live in enjoy sushi more then you can ever possibly imagine.
sorry, we do NOT have more time then you. just cuz you have a kid now
doesnt mean your time is less then ours. hardly. once again, besides my
full time job, i attend college on a full time basis (min 12 cred hours), have
homework to do as well as studying, attend a fitness club 2-3 times a week,
dj weddings and various clubs/parties on weekends, maintain various
websites, and so on.... not even including the everday humdrum of
home improvement on a house that wasnt taken care of.
The knives we use to chop up our food is less important to us then many, many other things we would rather spend $300 on. That and I like to throw dirty utensils in the dishwasher. So I would never spend that much cash on knives if I couldn't/should'nt. Different strokes for different folks.
if you throw "good" knives in the dishwasher it voids their lifetime replacement guarantee...
so i dare not ever throw my wusthof's in the dishwasher. tyvm
Just don't try and insinuate that somehow we are too dense to appreciate fine, quality things. That's wrong. Very wrong. Thanks.
i sure know how to strike a bone with you dont i? whereas again i know
what i said wasnt said in the most nice respectful way, i also did not
post with the intentions of stating that yer too dense or unappreciative.
you just made me feel real bad about something i felt really proud of,
that is the reason behind why i posted that comment. sorry if i offended.
