My wife doesn’t like having a joint account with me.
- It’s because I have a bit of a spending problem.
When I see both of our paychecks together and how much money we have, I can’t help but to splurge a little. Okay, okay, maybe not a little. Anyways, my wife is seemingly getting more annoyed by the amount of money I am spending each month on things that are not dire. She seems to think it would be better to save up for a vacation or for an emergency fund. She also mentions wanting to start our kid’s college funds. All of that stuff is important too, but I think a lot of that can wait, besides, I don’t buy stuff that often, usually only once a week. I guess I crossed the line though with my last purchase though, because now my wife is giving me the silent treatment. Why? Well I will already admit that I spent more than I usually do, but I think it is worth it! Anyways, I had a stranger stop me on the street and he was holding a sign that directed to his HVAC store. He suggested I go and take a look in there. I wasn’t originally going to, but he offered a discount for anything I saw, so I had to look. I ended up walking out with a portable A/C and a smart thermostat. My wife was not happy to say the least. She questioned why we even needed a portable air conditioner when ours work just fine, and well I didn’t really have an answer for that. I bought the smart thermostat because it looks cool, and she didn’t like that answer either. Oh well, I guess I’ll keep the HVAC unit in my room if she doesn’t want to use it.
