    I agree. My first thought when I saw the sign in the OP was.......nothing. Don't care.

    TBH i'd be a bit peeved too. It certainly suggests, we need permission from our husbands to spend money. I thought we'd come a long way from this *sigh*

    They probably do have people make comments along those lines so tried to play on it.

    I know when I go into kitchen/homewares shops, I think 'oops! Dh isn't going to be impressed' not because I'm not allowed to spend money without permission, but he doesn't agree that my seventh salad bowl was necessary because it matches the platter dish and cake stand that I bought on my previous shopping adventure
    This! I don't ask DHs permission to spend OUR money. I brought a dress last week that was $200+ and I thought 'DH won't be impressed" (because he won't see the value in such a lovely dress :-D )

    He does the same, buys oodles of play station games & computer parts i see no value in. Meh.

    I probably would have laughed & gone in.

    I'm surprising myself to say this, but I probably would have rolled my eyes, had a snigger how they actually think men still control the finances these days, and not thought a lot more.

    I like it!! I like the little bit of irony with it as well - I hope it was a bright red shade used.

    Yes.

    Really? What if the sign made a subtle racist comment? I can't think of an example but would that be acceptable?

    To be honest... I read it and giggled to myself. Then I read other posters comments and thought, "oops! wrong response." I think you're all taking it way more seriously than it was intended, but that's just my opinion.

    I would find a racist sign offensive, yes. But this wasn't racist.

    I must admit I didn't think it was overly humorous either, but it didn't upset me. And no, DH doesn't control our purse strings or anything, I just don't get the big deal.
