& you can't shoot 'em

Thursday, October 06, 2011

DH & I had a *talk* tonight, mainly because he is being a real jerk & selfish & stupid (oh yeah, he's a man, isn't he?) Ended up giving him all my credit/debit cards & told him if he wants to be such a control freak that he can put me on an allowance so I don't have to listen to him itch at me about $$ anymore.

Don't get me wrong, he's a great guy and he'll give me or the kids anything we ask for, gladly, but when the bills come in he freaks out. It's not that we have a ton of debt, a mortgage & two car loans like most people. We also have enough saved to live for two years if he were to lose his job, which, in this economy, seems like a smart thing. I totally agree and support that way of thinking. I am not a big spender & many of my clothes are from Target clearance. We are able to pay off the cards each month in full.

The problem is that he can never have enough put away...first it was six months, then a year, now two years & he's still complaining that I spend too much. I resent being made to feel that I'm bad for spending $150 at Walmart when he joined a stupid golf club this year. I don't go to the beauty shop more than twice a year. My daughter & I do all the yard work.

I know I'm rambling....just thought if I'd write it down I would stop seething.

    We've definitely all been there with your title :) My hubby and yours are quite opposite in the fact that mine can't save a dime! How do we get them to meet in the middle? Hmmm....I'd love to know that answer. I hope you are feeling better emoticon

    emoticon I'm with you! I can never understand that they never see the $ they spend. And I'm pretty sure your Walmart trip was for family stuff. But do carry one card in case of an emergency.

    I love the title! I've heard that's illegal.

    I feel your frustration and I've been there too. emoticon
