I work nights at Walmart. Right now there are a lot of temp. workers there. There is a guy there that I liked. he's friendly and we had a few conversations. As I was ringing up his lunch food last night we got to talking again. We ended up talking about my week off. I told him my dh just started working again, so i really got to enjoy my week off without pay. He asked how long he wasn't working and if he was collecting unemployment. I told him he was out of work for 18 months and no, he wasn't collecting unemployment.
He kind of raised his eyes brows and was like, "So you've been supporting your husband all of this time?" I started to say ,"Yes, but he was looking for work, and he picked up any odd jobs he could in the meantime, he's also almost finished with school..." He's cuts me off and says, "That's fucked up, it should be the other way around." I got a little defensive and said, "It's not like he didn't want to work, he went through several agencies, and was turned down a lot of jobs, because he has a felony he caught when he was 17." He's like, well, my brother has attempted murder and he's making 22/ an hour at a factory. You're dh could could have worked in a factory, but he's just making excuses." I wanted to tell him off then and there, but obviously I can't if I want to keep my job. I just said, "your brother sounds like a real winner, have a good lunch,' then i went about doing what I was doing before he showed up.
Ugh just my vent. I didn't tell dh about it, because he's truly has been down for being out of work for so long. He's working hard now, siding houses and putting in windows. he's making better money than me now. He's really happy and things have been so much better with us relationship wise. I just didn't want to make dh feel bad.
