Please save me from my wife


Recommended Posts

It could be worse, OP.  

 

In the breezeway of my future wife's parents' home, I was demonstrating something about my golf swing for her brother with a baseball bat and took out the glass globe on the overhead light fixture. Felt bad, felt worse when her mom told me it came from a torn down and historic hotel in town.  Felt some irony in that it was the very hotel my parents honeymooned at, but that irony was lost on her at the time, lol.

That sounds like a pretty awkward moment. The fact that you actually ended up part of the family speaks volumes.

When I got married, a friend told me,  "Just remember, your relationship with X has a full account balance now.  Every time you do something she doesn't like, you withdraw from that account.  There is no way to add back to the account."

 

Twenty-three years later, still married, but I have definitely made a lot of small withdrawals. 

This isn't true in a relationship where both parties are committed to growth.

Grab some spackle paste from the local hardware store, maybe even from the grocery store... You can use your fingers to fill that if you don't have a knife.... just fill it and make it flat as can be and let it dry, then sand it.  You should even be able to use a wet sponge if you have to.  In the meantime, put your golf bag in front of it.

Yes this 

 

That's a small enough hole that just plaster, sand and paint over it will work just fine. 

 

When I moved into my last house there were a lot of dents from moving furniture and stuff that the guy moving out made. They are very easy to repair of they are small

Take a bigger object and make a bigger hole.  As long as it’s not golf related and remotely plausible, you can come up with some excuse that blames something else rather than your poor golf skills. 

This exactly what I thought and have done before. “Oh babe, looks like your Apple fritter blossom decadence cookie dough candle fell off the shelf, bounced off your treadmill and hit the wall. I’ll fix it, these guys on a great discussion board let me know how.”

LOL--this is funny and MtlJeff loves good posting! But again for the actual problem at hand, a hole like that can be fixed and look 100% new in literally 10 minutes work (factoring an hour or so for the plaster to dry in between)

Lots of good advice but the man up suggestion is risky, but if so determined consider reducing your life insurance to lessen the incentive of other questionable behavior. Might, however, hit more balls in this area and then get some oils, acrylics, or watercolors and turn the dents into painted flowers. Some women really are into custom decorating, especially artwork with texture. She'll love the new, creative you.

My wife’s brothers but a hockey puck through the wall in their bedroom. They put a poster over it. They were both moved out before dad took down the poster.

Is the being scared of getting banned from golf by the wife just a joke that is going over my head cause I'm not married?

 

I've got a long term girlfriend that lives with me and if I accidentally slammed a golf ball into a wall the first thing I'd do is say "hey babe can you grab the drywall repair kit and help me out with this". I think the worst she would do is make fun of me for hitting a sh**ty shot

you are lucky your garage walls have a smooth finish versus having a textured wall. Go to your local hardware store and you can grab a small tube of spackle or even a small tub of spackle. Then grab a cheap 1" or 1 1/2" flat spackle knife or blade. Just take a golf ball size scoop and fill it in. Then take the spackle knife and take the edge and create a flat surface. Kinda like smoothing on some peanut butter on some bread and flattening it out. The keep running the knife over the area until you remove all the extra. Let it dry then come back at it with some sand paper. They sell those in packs of different grit. Then start with something semi abrasive until you get to a fine grit paper and smooth it out till its is even with the wall. Then grab some sample paint of your garage wall color and paint over it. You can have it completed in one day.

Please help me before the boss notices. New homeowner so not such a handy person at the moment. My garage is my golf practice area but I seem to have made a wound in the wall with a bad practice swing. How do I fix this before the wife notices?

It's the garage.  Just use a drywall hole filler/patch kit and touch it up with whatever paint color used in the build (or if it wasn't new construction just as close as possible).

That is an extremely easy repair to make.  Just get on Youtube to learn how to do it.  That's not the last drywall repair you'll ever have to make by a long shot.  Might as well learn how to do it now.

Quick fix to try to make it less noticeable is put some white cloth first aid tape over it. Otherwise it is an easy fix. Joint compound (probably three coats), drywall sanding block, and paint. Likely won't need any drywall tape and might not even need paint because the joint compound might be really close to color of wall. Can also get fast setting joint compound but really have to work fast with that stuff.
