My sister and her husband have been married for three years. They have four children, my sister having my niece from a previous relationship, her husband with two girls also from a previous relationship, and together they had my nephew.
Recently, money has been tight for them. My sister had to quit her job due to management bullying her, and she got not just one job, but two more jobs after quitting. She works every single day of the week, no time to even breathe. Her husband has one job.
Hes used all of his sick days, paid days off, everything, yet continues to call in sick/leave early. This week alone he's called in three times. He's not even remotely sick.
It angers me...my sister works so hard to make things comfortable for them, yet he can't even work ONE job. The topper? He constantly blows their money on cigs and beer. They switched to ecigs and were not drinking and were saving money. Why he decides to blow money on things they don't need, I don't know. I mean yeah, they could do without the ecigs but still. He's even blown up at her for buying herself new jeans instead of beer for him. My sister, like my mother and I, puts everyone else first and rarely buys herself new clothes. She needed jeans. Him? He has no issue buying $90+ vests and Harley Davidson boots. Once my sister saved up money and got him a pair of boots, but they weren't Harley Davidson and were half the price of the name brand, but still NICE. He flat told her he wouldn't wear them because they weren't name brand.
I wish I could do something...all I can do is be there for my sister and offer her massages (I'm licensed). I just needed to vent. She's such a caring woman and he's taking advantage of that.
