This is me but I also just enjoy spreadsheeting.
Our finances work well because my wife is relatively cheap/frugal and has forgotten her PIN and password to our bank account. She constantly assumes the account is low and we don’t save anything. I don’t bother telling her balances.
Why would you do that? I indoctrinated my wife so well when we first got married that 20 years later she will still often instinctively reply “we can’t afford it we’re on a budget” if a family member floats a now comfortably affordable weekend away or big group gift
Because now I get to buy the shit I want without hearing anything about it.
My wife stays home with the kids. I take care of all financial stuff, she has no idea how much money we make, and I buy whatever I want.
I can’t buy anything without her permission, but when it comes to vacations she is a banana costs $10 meme.
I can’t comprehend just going through life having no idea how much money you have
my wife hasn't logged into our finances since like....'16, no checking bank account, credit card, nada
she makes absurd money and is cheap so it works out
I'm sure most of us file taxes jointly. My wife and I have no clue what the other does, but we're both responsible and she makes quite a bit more than I do so there's a built in cushion. We talk about big purchases.
Kids 2nd birthday tomorrow.
8:30- 9:30 work conference call
9:30-10:30 trip to grocery store to order food for party and pick up stuff.
10:30-2:00. pressure clean the patio, clean leaves out of pool, clean pool filters, finalize new sprinkler system that was installed yesterday, clean patio furniture
2:00-3:30 another work conference call and respond to emails
3:30-4:30 trip to Costco and liquor store for more party supplies.
4:30-7:00 put drinks in coolers, put the now clean patio furniture in correct spots, clean inside of house, etc.
9-7 keep half an eye on child while she worked on the party favors for the 10 kids coming to the party. Guess who is the asshole for not caring what the party favors looked like at end of day?
Next year this damn thing is gonna be at a trampoline park.
Eating at Michelin star restaurants every weekend doesn't tip her off?
I fucking wish.
Utility companies hate him!
I totally feel you. But at the same time, enjoy it. The day will come when you sit down on the couch in your empty house after the kid(s) are all out on their own and wonder, “what the fuck am I supposed to be doing now?”
Empty nesting is the balls but it hits hard and fast.
that turtle definitely lost half a leg in Vietnam
I'm honestly impressed the party favors were completed in that time
I legit think I’m going to have a breakdown about this in about 2036. My kids drive me up the wall, but I’m bored as fuck after an hour or two reset without them.
Oh. It’s all worth it for the few hours this kid will be smiling and running around with his friends in the pool. It’s going to be our first time in it. I was just fucking exhausted last night and in no mood to be told I wasn’t being supportive of a day long arts and crafts project and hear about how stressful her day was as well.
Pup had a surgery today to correct the issue, and our vet called it a “twat tuck.”
I wouldn’t put it up there with pussy in terms of bad words. but lol at feeling weird about saying lady parts then throwing down twat multiple times.
Glad to hear about your dog's vagina, tegg
Wife had a rough day at work this week. I'm legitimately impressed at how many people she's been able to retell the story to. It's astounding. Like more people than I even know.
The biggest boost to my marriage and happiness, by far, was my wife’s change in attitude towards work. I have no idea what happened, but she stopped bitching in the second half of 2022 and shit is way easier on the whole these days.
She still complains about being tired 24x7. Can’t win em all.
Thanks. She’s doing great.
Sorry to break it to you but she now has a work husband she can vent to.
As long as I don’t have to hear it…
Better than a work boyfriend. At least that dope's also not getting laid
Man Im jealous as hell
My wife has work wives which mean they gaslight each other and now I have to hear about all the things each of them are pissed about.
It’s within the first year, they are still in the honeymoon phase. I mean he said himself she is always tired now.
I imagine this is what being a Mormon must be like but without the extra sex
My wife made promotional posters for her Roller Derby team’s next match and they heavily feature an incredibly attractive player from their team, so that’s a nice unintentional bonus in my house right now.
So yesterday she decided she was gunna make the guest bedroom into a "she room".
Whatever, as long as it's still a guest room, imo
I drug out an 8 foot long dresser/mirror set that is out on the curb for free
Today, she went to town and fucking filled her suv with shit for this room.
Like a cabinet, a chair, a mirror, and God knows what else.
I'm avoiding looking at bank or credit card accounts to keep from getting mad.
I've drug so much shit out of that room this evening that I am gunna have to haul away tomorrow, and I just went in there and it feels more clustered up than yesterday

I’d like to see a photo of this room upon completion.
My wife sat here not really saying a lot while our daughter was awake. She just put our daughter to sleep on her chest and suddenly it's like she ate parrot food and can't stop talking. Problem is she's whispering now and I can't understand a word she's saying. I'm getting bits and pieces and faking the rest.
I know she didn't grow up with access to even white people mexican food but my wife is the slowest taco assembler I have ever seen.
I used to be that way, and I think that's why I don't look now. When we moved to florida and she was in med school, we were super broke and i was counting every penny. I remember when we had 5k in our account and I felt like a god. Now I don't ever check our accounts, but I think it's because I fear it'll be like it was several years ago and i'll stress out.
I was being charged a $20/paycheck (for not getting my health screened, which I did) fee for something at work and I didn't notice it until 3/4 through the FY. I explained that it was an error and they were super confused how I wouldn't have noticed it on my paycheck. I told them I never looked at my paychecks and they fought me hard as hell to refund me.
I'm kinda the same. It's not uncommon for me to go a month between opening my banking app.
A guy who I used to work with broke his phone while we were at sea. We weren't far from an island that would have phones so he shot in and got a new one. Within a few hours his wife was calling wanting to know what he bought. He told us she checks on their banking multiple times a day and knows to the cent what's there. I just can't mentally live my life that way.
Thanks to beerme for my 40k like; a paltry number of likes for a 2009 OG TMBer but proud of it none-the-less.
Damn , I was so close
I aim to please… except for with my posts of which I’m At a whopping 9000
My wife is unable to assemble a burrito without overstuffing it by a factor of 3.
There is a joke in there somewhere
Not something stupid aside from being incredibly frustrating.
all my wife’s friends have been wearing the on cloud shoes and telling her how great they are but she hates spending money. For Valentine’s Day I bought her a gift card so she had no choice. Next day she found a pair she wanted and then radio silence.
In an attempt to stop her from procrastinating I found 2 stores very close that she can go try them on. Still nothing.
Today she says one of her friends said she should go try a pair on and order so she’s going to.
Very jealous every time one of you talks about your wife not liking to spend money
Pretty sure it's my wife's favorite thing on earth
I am baffled at this. what woman doesn't like to spend money to this level of procrastination?
Her dad was super controlling over money with her growing up and when we were younger money wasn’t great at times so she has some bad memories
My wife went to go heat pizza up. She put the whole box in the oven and almost set our house on fire.
That is a good one, it’s a really good one.
