So last night my boyfriend casually brings up the fact that he is thinking about selling his 2 guitars. I asked him why and he said because he wants to get rims for the new suv he just bought (mind you, he got this suv with a stupid ass loan from the bank).
He does not use the guitars and cannot really play, so they just sit around not ever being used. However, I've always wanted to learn to play and I always thought it was awesome that he had guitars because I've never had one. I've never made any effort to learn how to play though because they're his guitars and I didn't want to use them and I wasn't going to ask if I could--I always thought they had some special meaning to him, but I guess not.
Anyways, it really upsets me that he wants to waste money on something stupid like rims. They are completely unncessary. He thinks I'm going to like them and I'll look like a 'cool' mom--frankly, I couldn't care less about rims at this particular time. Would I mind having them? No, I wouldn't mind....but if he is willing to get rid of some of his stuff to gain extra money, why not spend or save that money wisely??? He/we have had several other things he's wanted to buy for quite awhile now---i.e. an electric grill, table/chairs for the balcony, new microwave, I need to get an eye exam and new glasses since mine recently fell out of the stroller onto pavement and got scratched up, entertainment center for the living room, a few other things for the house, and I need a new phone because mine shuts off randomly on me all the time and doesn't work properly--like why isn't he thinking logically???! Heck, he could sell the guitars and whatever and put that money towards paying off the stupid ass loan he got in order to get our new vehicle!! Duh!! I would've never thought to ask him to sell any of his things in order to get these things we actually NEED, but apparently he is willing to do that to buy something idiodic that's going to cost hundreds of dollars! I'm seriously sooo angry about this. I know it's technically his money, but I can't help but feel so frustrated in this situation. We're currently not really speaking to each other...I even had to get out of bed after he told me last night and go sit on the couch to gather my thoughts, cry, and calm down.
How would you guys feel about this? What would you do? I know I'm just a stay at home mom with no income of my own, so I guess I never really have a say in any financial stuff because it's his money, but I couldn't help but speak my mind last night! This extra money would be helpful in so many other ways.. :(
