There are some pretty sick people out there.
I most recently found out someone came across this blog accidentally. They'd put "daughter jacks off dad" in the search engine and one of the results came back, "My Daughter, Jack" Not really sorry to have disappointed them. Not at all.
Sick, sick people.
...and y'all thought I was crazy.
Where's CPS when you need them? Oh, yeah. Sitting with the CHP and other bloated governmental acronyms (ICE?), waiting for a real non-emergent "situation" to don their blood-red capes and strike with their poison pens.
|...always in search of just... erm, I mean, the Easy Job!|
|...sorry, all circuits are busy. Please try your call again later.|
|...no real threat there.|
Anyway, I've been listening to a lot of people in my circle of existence complain about their significant others. I understand much of their frustration - being married is ... hard. Especially when your partner doesn't. (partner)
|I promise. No instruction manual needed. Not kidding.|
One woman told me her husband does all the cooking...
I like to cook, but really would like to do only half the cooking. I can imagine hubby feels the same way.
|reminding you to not take advantage of another's kindness...|
One woman said her husband does all the financials and grocery shopping.
That would work for me because... really, how much more time and less wrinkles would you have if you didn't have to worry your pretty little head about making the paycheck stretch to the end of the month, or clipping coupons to save a buck here or there? Then Practical Sandi rears her ugly head, and I'm reminded to put all financial eggs in one basket, where only one partner knows the ins-and-outs is really not the smartest way to go. What if something were to happen to your partner? Would you know how to pick up the pieces and continue on? I mean, you'd certainly know how to pay a bill, but would you know the investments side? No. I think remaining in control of your finances alongside your partner, albeit boring and stress-inducing, is pragmatic and sensible.
One woman said her husband does all the cleaning and laundry.
That really works for me... but I'm not too sure it's fair to hubby. Why should one soul pick up after another, regardless of gender?
Oh, Hell! I don't know what I'm talking about. I've never had an equal partnership in any romantic relationship in my life. I don't know why I said "romantic" just now, either... there was very little of that in any of my ... other relationships.
You seem to either get an overbearing partner who wants things done his way - but wants you to do them... HIS way.
|Sir, Yes Sir!!|
|I just can't seem to get away from him.|
|...is this really just a fantasy of mine?|
The kicker... the kicker... just two weeks before, I listened to that same woman complain if her husband didn't find a job soon she was going to scream. Changes needed to be made, dammit!!
|a real "damned if you do, damned if you don't" moment|
Life isn't perfect. Jobs are hard to come by, I'm told.
Her choices are to continue to carry 100% of the financial burden until a job for him closer to home opens and be responsible for only 50% of the home front burdens, or to begin carrying 100% of the home front burdens and share half the financial burden with her husband, who'll be away most of the time.
I wanted to point out to her when you're a single mom...
Enjoy & In Joy.
