The Very Stubborn Sweet Spot

My non-gamer spouse can be pretty generous when it comes to spoiling me with video games and earlier this evening, I was offered two games at my favorite local gaming store. Having access to my "Purchase List", my spouse suggested Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 as well as Resistance 3 for the PlayStation 3. Now when I decided to stick with my $39.99 or below price limit on game purchases, I originally intended that to only be applicable for games that I would pay out of my own pocket.

I am so used to my new modus operandi that I just couldn't deter from it anymore. I felt like I was taking advantage of my spouse if I proceeded to the cash register with those titles.
