Why would he get a new damn computer knowing you need food?



I'd be pissed the f**k off. We were living off of canned food for about 2 weeks but only because we truly couldn't afford to get anything else. But go to a food bank, apply for food stamps...6 weeks without food is ridiculous. And I wouldn't be with someone who put his WANTS over our child's NEEDS.

My dh is a dick. He will spend money until its gone.... Then some. But he would never let us go with out. We even shopped at the discount grocrey store (off brands or about to expire food) you need to have a good long talk with him about priorities

I'd take charge. The day he gets paid, go out and buy whatever your family needs. He's being a prick.

Quoting Just Ames:" ......From all her threads he doesn't sound like the most stand up guy anyway :? She'd be better off without him <shrug>"


I don't even need to see the other threads, clearly someone who chooses to buy a toy for himself, over food for the mother of his child and his child is an immature POS..



I'm sorry the OP is in such a relationship, but I am more sorry for the child in her profile picture.

Oh I agree. I'm just saying from what else she has said about him this isn't in the least surprising.

OP, you need to think of yourself and your children. Obviously his priorities are not in line. I would go get temporary help (food bank, food stamps (your equivalent of)) and then let him know that it was the last straw, he needs to straighten up, or gtfo. And YOU need to stick to your word. It's not just about you anymore. You need to make sure your children have their basic needs.

That laptop would be in a f**king pawn shop, I can tell you that much.
My SO SUCKS with money, however, he knows that certain things come first. And even though he buys dumb shit sometimes, he's always put me and DD first.
Anyway, enough about how your SO should be. I'm sorry he did that, but PAWN IT. Just saying.

It's never like this!!! Just a really bad mix up. We got our tax return and got all excited an went shopping and bought a computer, a high chair, and some clothes for me and then had some saved for groceries but his truck broke down and we ended up having to spend all our money on the truck so he can get to work. Sucks so bad. We're going to borrow some money from his parents but it is just so embaressing. I also need to file for my child tax benifit and I should be getting a lot of money in the mail. We are just so behind these days. Dh hates the computer so much right now he won't even use it because he regrets spending his money on it.

Umm, this totally contradicts your OP :?



"I am sooo hungry. We are so broke we haven't gotten groceries in almost 6 weeks. We have NOTHING. I've been living off canned vegetables while my husband has a brand new computer. Jesus Christ I hate going hungry while he blows all his money on f**king bullshit."

Well ya I'm pissed that he bought the computer but I didn't explain we'll enough. People need to calm down and get the actual story before they assume and start calling my husband a peice of shit. We are trying here. It was a big mistake he didn't know his truck was going to break down.

You made your husband sound like a p***e o* s**t so don't get your panties in a wad because people read YOUR post that YOU made about your DH starving you and your child.
