Very Upset

My husband comes home with a gift bag from work and he usually gets a card along with a check. We usually use some of it for bills and our kids christmas. We also get a few gifts for ourselves. He is going through the goodie bag and says Im not supposed to give you any of this but Ill give you $500 to put toward the kids christmas. I just kinda looked at him but I didnt say anything. This check was $3000 and he only makes $1000 a month. I always have to scrimp all year to make ends meet. He absolutely refuses to let me go to work. I have been crying all morning. I dont know if this is his words or thiers. My feelings are hurt more by what he said than the money.

Wait.....what? 

So he did get a check and you have money for gifts for your kids? I assume you are crying tears of joy.....right.

Where did he get the money from?  Why is he "not supposed" to give you any?  I just don't understand, sorry.

I don't understand either--I think we need more details.

I think he may have been teasing. Since it was a "gift" from his work. Get it

Do you not have access to money? What is going on? Are you involved in the family budget or does he just hand you an allowance.

He works part time for a ranch where we live. They have alot of money. They pay him $1000 a month to mow and weedeat during the summer. He does this 2x a month.He hurt my feelings when he said Im not supposed to give you any of this money. I felt like it was a slap in the face, like I dont deserve any. I dont care about the money. I guess its complicated.
