In some cases that could be great. In other cases, you die (or so I’ve heard).
I fell asleep very fast and that was a good thing because my wife was irritating me. We made a bad financial decision last year but I led the way. We bought a house to use as a rental property but it needed work. Well, it needed way more work than I thought and it’s killing us. It’s almost done but it’s drained our savings.
Last night we had two separate blankets on the bed because she was washing the main one. I told her we should just get a comforter–you know, the blankets made for beds. She said they’re just for decoration. Well I’ve used them my entire life and always enjoyed their warmth. We haven’t had one for years because she doesn’t like them. So last night she says “I’ve worked so hard and I’ve done so much and we can’t even buy a comforter.” Well, that just comes off as “We can’t afford anything because you screwed up.”
We both work hard and make damn near the exact same amount of money so I thought we were partners/equals. We discussed the decision beforehand. But, of course, after it went south it was my decision, not ours. She trusted me but she “knew” this would happen. I wish she would’ve told me beforehand. She would’ve been right and possibly saved us the headache. She’s told me like six times how she’s worked so hard and feels like a failure because we can’t afford extras right now. It sure does make me feel like shit.
At the very least I was able to just stay quiet last night. The booze helped me to fall asleep quite easily and I didn’t say anything I regret.
