Real Life Trinket. It proc'd last night, and I am so glad that I told Turion, the Pally Tank, that I wasn't going to raid this week. I know my wife has gotten really tired of hearing, "No, honey, I really don't want to...." due to being committed to going to Kara or something.
So, at the beginning of the week, I told Turion that I wouldn't be raiding this week, and despite his goading, stuck to my guns. And now, I've told him to take me off the schedule indefinitely. I really think that this is going to greatly lower the wife aggro if I can jump off the computer at a moment's notice. And, of course, I can't do that if 9 other people are depending on me.
I am debating a server transfer. There, I said it. A number of the Pox folks I play with on Wednesday nights have made alts in BBB's guild, and I've had some more time to play with them on Daxenos the Dwarf Hunter. One of the parts of Sidhe Devils' Guild Charter that I really like is that they will not coerce and/or force people into raids. Wanna raid? Great! Don't wanna? Great!
As a member of The Iron Ring, I feel pressure to raid in order to progress because I'm geared for it and I do a pretty good job. I can definitely understand Turion's viewpoint: "Hey, we geared you - you owe us, and you need the badges/gear/rep anyways." Unfortunately, for him, I would much rather torque him and the guild off than my wife; this wasn't always the case.
While I do enjoy the 10 man raids, it is taking a toll on my marriage, which I was concerned about way back when. I have voiced several of my concerns and current situation on the forums over at Sidhe Devils' website and received quite a bit of positive feedback. So, at the risk of being called a rat b*****d by Turion for the next 20 years we work together, I am seriously thinking about moving.
So, more, uh, musings of a flake job...
