Would this frustrate you?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Everyday dh takes $20 to work. We agreed that we can afford for him to spend $10 a day (ciggs, snacks and drinks) but he continuously takes $20 and spends it all.

He also gets a soda everyday on his way home. He never brings home anything for me to drink, just a soda for himself.

I spend $10-15 a week in groceries because I shop at dollar tree. I only get chicken and premade meatballs because we can't afford much. We don't qualify for pa so I dont get to buy meats. He spends more in 1 day than I do in 1 week!

Would this bother you?

Eta: I make him a lunch everyday. It's usually leftovers but it's enough to fill him up!!

I spent $5 a day. Df & I have an agreement: if we have to spend more than $10 on a single purchase, we clear it with the other one first (unless we're shopping together or it's a neccessity for thr kids).

Um ya he could pack those too.... Except the cigarettes but honestly you all are too poor for him to be smoking.

I make him a lunch every day he just likes to get snacks, drinks and smokes

Yes. That's an extra 100 a week. He can get a cooler and pack his shit.

Wow. Doesn't sound like he cares much about the welfare of his family! You arent even eating and he's blowing 400$ a month on cigs and soda.... How selfish :( I'd be very upset. I don't think I could be with a man like that :(


Quoting Anonymous:

That's what I told him! Even if it's only $10 then it's $70 a week I could use for food! I don't get to eat except dinner because I give him leftovers so there's nothing here for me and ds gets sandwiches




Quoting nocalmegan:

Hell yeah it would. That's 400$ a month while you are buying chicken and meatballs from the $$ store. Something is way off there.

Why can't he pack a lunch? Much cheaper. He also doesn't need smokes or pop.
