I am not sure…but this could be the weirdest email you’ve gotten so far…
My wife and I just got a new mattress after 20 years (I know that’s a long time…but whatever!) We had this mattress through the time my wife and I dated through a good portion of our marriage.
Anyway…I made the mistake of telling my single buddy that I was getting rid of this mattress. Well, he said he wanted it!!! Now I know this might be strange but my wife and I don’t want HIM to have it…we don’t care if a stranger gets it but we feel creepy about knowing he has OUR sacred mattress. The thought of it makes my stomach turn.
How do I tell him “no way” is HE getting our mattress.

This is a funny one…but I have to tell you I completely understand how you feel. It IS kind of creepy knowing your best single buddy has the mattress you and your wife had for most of your relationship.
Here’s what I would do… make a joke out of it… come out and say you think it would be weird knowing he has your mattress! Say “I just can’t do it” then through in…”someone else has already claimed it”.
The whole thing has given me a bit of a chuckle!
Best of luck my friend!
