STB ex-wife took my BGE

When I was out of town on business she moved out.  The move-out was planned and more than OK by me.  But she took the egg.  Which was not planned of course.  She's never used the egg or even touched it.  She would have zero clue how to use it.  But when I got home from my trip it and her stuff were gone.  What to do fellow eggers?  It's a sad sad day.

    Your call tag is pretty ironic though @YouEnjoyMyEgg

  • rtt121 that's pretty funny.  and true.  My screen name is based on a song from my favorite band Phish.  YEMTrey is probably the only one that gets it.  But its never been so true has it?

    YEMTrey do you think I should tell PT?  They might hunt her down!  :D

    Then let her know how easy it is to do pizza and neglect to mention about burping it :))

    LOVE this. 

    "you have to get it to about 800 degrees and leave it closed for about 25 minutes.  Then open it quickly and put the pizza on"   :))

    Don't know what to say except you aren't going to win this one. That said you will end up happier and healthier. I have eight eggs with the woman I love that I married second. Of course she would have been 9 the first time I got married.

    My wife just gave me some advice from a female perspective.  You were probably spending way to much time on the eggheadforum and neglecting her, so she stole it to spite you. 

    Seriously...that sucks man.  I don't know how all of this works, I guess you have to wait and sort it out with the attorneys as to "who gets what".  


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I discovered a great deal of pride and the first steps to recovering my soul when I left my ex who cared for nothing but herself and wealth. I took nothing but the clothes on my back.

    All things, even eggs, are just things. It will chaff her ass and serve you well to just let it go. She can sit on it.

    My Ex did the same thing, never once opened the lid.  When it came down to splitting property and money, it was included and deducted from what I had to pay her. Instead of fighting for it, I decided to buy one the B@#CH never ate off of. Just wished I wouldn't have tightened the bands that one last time.  Oh well, the reason why divorce is so expensive is because it's worth it.

    Yeah...don't even bring it up. Act like it never happened and she'll be even more butt hurt about it. Lets just hope that whatever guy that starts using it becomes a good member. :P

    That sucks about your egg getting napped. I know it will be hard but let this one drop, I bet there are gonna be bigger things to fight over as the story progresses I hope not but that is how they tend to go. Get yourself a fresh egg to go with your new life. Best of luck to you man.

    She's pressing your buttons.  Knows you value your egg and that's probably the only reason she took it.  Now, you could turn into a mushroom cloud layin' mother-f*ckah, which would feel great for about 10 minutes before you landed your ass in jail, or you could be civil about it and show up at her new love nest with a few deputies and charges of theft.  I'm a civil guy.  10% of the time.
