My SO is driving me batshit crazy of late. He's been out of work for a little over a year....he HAS been looking, but it's difficult with no car. We cannot afford one. We live in a little town that is practically a ghost town. I have a part time job and am looking for a second one myself with no luck. But we do get out there and recycle, and the like.
But when he recycles cans and scrap metal, he often keeps the money all to himself. He usually buys himself coffee, cigarettes, and snacks. And he strongly hints around how much he wants cookies and other junk, that I refuse to buy even when I can afford it.
Money is tight yet the bills are paid, and all the basic necessities are here. (I stock up when it's on sale, shop at yard sales, thrift stores, etc to save money.)
Well today when I was cleaning out a drawer,I found a Subway gift card I forgot I had. It had a $9 balance on it. Our son is at church camp, and so I got on my bicycle and went and got me a sandwich. It is the first one I had in more than a year. I know damn well that hubby would have wanted a sandwich too but he is always selfish with money he makes instead of putting it into the household. I know it was probably wrong to indulge but I do not care. If my SO knew that Subway card was there he would have done the same thing. What would you guys have done if you were me?
