Yes, it's sexist. I dont think reversing the sign is relevant (the wife gave you permission at the fishing shop). Afterall, men are not typically victim of sexist and derogatory comments. It's the same way the majority cannot define what is racist towards the minority.

I would avoid that shop just based on the sign! Outdated, ignorant and full of gender based assumptions.

There's a boating place near me, which says on the window "your wife called and said it's OK!".
It annoys me, but obviously other people find it funny. To each their own.

If DH and I are going to make a purchse of a significant amount (usually any more than say $50) then we'll call and discuss it beforehand. We are saving at the moment and its just what we've always done from when he was an apprentice and I was a trainee - when we had to be frugal.
DH was out buying new motorcycle gear about 6 weeks ago and before he madr the purchase he gave me a quick call to make sure it wouldn't affect our money situation (it was for $450 worth of gear) - the shop owner made a smart a$$ comment about DH being whipped - so DH left and brought his gear elsewhere.
Honestly though, I just see this as an attempt at a bit of humour. Thats all.

Yep that's us as well Peanut. it isn't about asking 'permission', more about keeping each other in the loop and assessing if the purchase is really needed, if we can really afford it etc.
My DH laughs all the time at how he could never 'make' me do anything, that I'm too feisty to be a women that is told what to do. yep DH, damn straight

Doesn't offend me. I see it as just a joke.
