He read this article and started bitching about how he doesn't make enough money. We do live in San Mateo County. I talked to him about the difference between average salaries and median salaries. He still kept bitching. I looked up this article to show him. Yes, he kept bitching and bitching long enough for me to look up an article on my phone. The last time I found something that let me look up median salaries by region, it was for 2010, and said his median salary was in the top 38% for the metropolitan region. I know it was probably outdated, blah, blah, blah. We still make a wonderful income. He's only been a tech worker for five years. Five years. He graduated from college in the May 2008. His very first job the company closed only ten weeks after he started working there. It took forever for him to find another job. When he did, it was for more money than most people raise families on! Come on! I have the feeling people are going to accuse me of this being a brag post. But isn't that even more reason for him to be feeling blessed?! I remember how proud he sounded when he first called me and told me that he got a job offer out here. He called me from his cell, still in the building at the job interview, asked me to research schools in the area, and tell him which ones I wanted to be zoned for. He sounded so smug and self-satisfied. I asked him what he meant, and asked if he thought he'd get the job he was interviewing for. He said nonchalantly that "Oh, yeah" they'd made him an offer, and he'd accepted. So, he was going to move me there with him, and he needed me to tell him what neighborhood I wanted to move to, so he could get us an apartment. We were married four months later. I'm so proud of him. He's more than proud enough of himself. His grandparents are poor. Ridiculously poor. They're in a forgettable, flyover region of Missouri. They talk about him like he's a god or something. When we get together, it's automatically assumed we're going to pay for everyone, and they pick out the most expensive restaurants they can think of. To everyone else in his family, he's made it- he has it all! I know spouses are supposed to be supportive, but I just don't have it in me anymore. His first job out here, he was happy for a full year. Then he started bitching all the time. So he got a job making more money and almost immediately started bitching. So, he got another job, and started bitching after three months. So he got another job making more money, and started bitching after probably six months or so. Now he's interviewing again so he can be a serial job hopper, and he's just bitching and bitching that no one's giving him a big enough salary. He bitches that he's been doing this so long, and he's still not a senior developer, like the other coworkers who were hired at that first company at the same time as him. He bitches, company after company, about how he's unappreciated and he always criticizes every company he works for so much. So much!!! Bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch. He's so negative and ungrateful!
