Ah yes, but this can easily be overcome by a mans "Stupidity factor".
By taking things far too litterally at every opportunity, we can easily re-train the women in our lives to say what they really mean, otherwise we will take them at their word.
If your wife say's "Fine, just go ahead and buy the stupid boat" your response should be an excited "Thanks Honey! Oh you'll see, you won't regret this!" And return in a half-hour with the boat in tow.
If your wife say's "Whatever, just get the stupid trolling motor" you should again say excitedly "Just wait till we're on the lake this summer sweetie, you'll see how relaxing it is" and return in another half-hour with the trolling motor.
If your wife say's "I used the 3 boxes of 00 buckshot in your top drawer to blow your boat and trolling motor to bits" you should verify that she did indeed use ALL the ammunition and not purchase anymore for a period of 6 months.
