    My wife and I sort of got into it this past week over and Issue we differ on. For a few years now I've only been able to find contract and temporary jobs through staffing agencies. My wife works full time and has everyone in the house insured on her company plan. That everyone includes me, her, here two sons aged 22 and 23, and my 22 year old college daughter. Well, I've been working a contract assignment since this past Oct or so and this past week I was informed that the company would like to bring me on full time. I'me very happy about that. In discussing it with my wife the topic of benefits and insurance came up. I told her that since my daughter was still in school of course I was going to insure her and possibly even consider insuring my wife for the extra coverage for both of us. She then asked me if I was going to insure her sons and I told her probably not simply because her youngest graduated college a few years ago and lives primarily with his girlfriend at her parent's house. He only comes home about 2 or 3 days a week. And, her oldest son has 2 kids of his own. So no, I'm not going to insure a man who has kids. If you're adult enough to have kids then you don't need to be still on your parent's insurance. You need to be working to support your own kids. My wife feels I'm wrong because we all need insurance and since you can insure grown kids until they are almost 30 why not? I told her that I wasn't.

    I started a contract assignment back in Nov with a company and me and 2 others started training the same day. One girl quite about 3 weeks into it because she wasn't grasping the material like she thought she would. That left me and another girl. Since then we've been working on the phones for this company. Earlier this week we both received offers to go permanent with the company. Please do not make this about co-workers discussing salaries because that's not what this is about. Ok, I received my offer letter the other day and we were discussing it. Word was going around that when you go perm with this company to expect a pay cut from what your agency was paying you. When I got my offer I actually got a bump in pay. Me and the girl were talking and she told me she was making more than $20 an hour. I of course told her I was making less than that. She told me when her agency called to offer her the job she told them she wouldn't accept any less than $20 an hour. She said you have to know your worth. Ok, today she hits me up to say she got her offer letter and she's not happy. When I asked what it was she told me they were offering her almost $3 less an hour. I'm just one of those who feel that when you're home making no money and a job is being offered to you and they tell you the salary range you don't get greedy and ask for more. You may find yourself still looking for work. My question is this. Do you feel you're making what you're worth on your job?

    My wife has this thing to where whenever she gets the sniffles she's like a big baby. Sunday she wasn't feeling well. Had a runny nose. We went to church, I drove. Got home and she lay on the sofa while I cooked all the food for Super Bowl. I fixed her plate and brought it to her. She then went into the bedroom while I washed all the dishes. But the minute I walked in the bedroom she makes the statement, "no one around here seems to care that I'm sick." What more could I have done for her or was she just acting like a little prima donna. I had a cold several weeks ago and I got up every day and went to work. I still cooked on my nights to cook. I didn't let it stop me. But the sniffles is enough to lay her out for 2 or 3 days. She hasn't been to work all week.

    This is 2019, and we live int he day of instant approvals and immediate technology but why does it still take a back 10 days to verify a check? I found out a few months ago that I had an insurance policy from a job I worked some 15+ years ago. The cash value of it was only like $750. I decided to cash it out. Last week I received a check from Wells Fargo (and not just some Joe Blow bank) and deposited it into my mobile app on my phone last Friday night. Now I figured there'd be a slight hold due to when it was deposited but I received notification from my bank (Bank of America) that they were placing a 10 day hold on the check to verify the funds. SERIOUSLY! It takes B of A 10 days to verify a check for less than $1000? It use to be that when you deposited a check they back would make some of the funds available immediately but no anymore. They won't release any of the funds until 2/5. I spoke with a back rep last night and he told me that even if they verify the funds they will still not release them until the 10 days is up. Why is that?

    My wife has this thing to where she feels I'm too tight with my money. No, we don't have a joint account where all monies go. She has here account and I have mine. We get paid opposite weeks and typically the person who gets paid that week usually buys the weekend dinner, lunches, or any groceries that need to be bought. Well, that's typical when my wife and I hang out together. A few weeks ago was my pay week and we didn't hang out much because we both had things to do. I had a family reunion meeting with a few of my family members at a local restaurant and my wife had a baby shower to go to for a co-worker. Well, with any baby shower you know there's going to be food. Before I left for my meeting my wife asked me for some gas money. Sure, buy a gift for a co-worker before you make sure you have gas. Then she asked me to order her some food at the restaurant and bring it home to her. My thinking is that "aren't you going to a baby shower and isn't there going to be food there?" Her thinking is that since she can't go to the restaurant with me I should get her a to go plate. Well, are you going to bring me food from the baby shower? Nope! My wife actually makes more than me, btw! Side note: She also has this thing to where whenever I tell her anything she gets mad that I didn't tell her sooner. I can come home from work and mention to her that I have to work late tomorrow and she'll get mad because I didn't tell her earlier when I found out.

    This morning at about 6 AM my wife's cell phone rings waking both of us up. It's her mom. I hear my wife say, "I'll be there shortly." She she gets up she tells me that she has to run her mom to the hospital because she's having trouble with her hands. I asked my wife why she called her to take her because her dad and 16 year old grandson are both there in the house and they all can drive and have several cars there. My wife said that she doesn't know and that's not her concern. My wife's mentally challenged sister is there too but at that hour she's probably still sleep. Our nephew doesn't have a license, only a permit, but the in-laws bought him a used car a few months ago and literally allow hi to go wherever he wants. But when you need him now she didn't want to bother him. When I questioned my wife as to why her mom called her across town when there were people available to drive her right there in the house she now thinks I don't care about her mom. I do but if I'm to the point of having to go to the hospital the last thing I'm going to do is let people in my house sleep then wake someone up way across town to take me. My wife thinks now that I'm saying her mom isn't important.

    I'm having the hardest time getting my wife to understand budgeting and finances. She refuses to make any changes so we can get on the same page financially. She's responsible for the rent and I'm covering the majority of the other bills. Every month she always pays the rent last and every month we get court papers but her thing is as long as it gets paid before the next month then we're good. Yesterday while at work I get a call from our rental agency. I couldn't answer it at my desk so it went to voicemail/ 5 minutes later I get an email from them saying they received out rent yesterday but we're in an eviction status because my wife didn't pay the additional $150 for the court fees because she is paying it so late in the month. NO, this isn't the first time we have had this discussion about late fees but my wife seems to think that if they have accepted rent late in the past they will continue in the future. I've been trying to get us to set up a joint account and put ALL our money into it but she doesn't want to do that simply because she has her car payment being auto deducted from her account and she doesn't want to make the 1 or 2 phone calls to change it. I really thing my wife just doesn't want me to see what she's doing with her money. However, she has been harping on us going on a cruise or us going on vacation this year because she's tired of not doing anything. .

A number of the employees who went perm have since left because they weren't aware of the pay cut. Is this common now? If so then I'd rather stay a temp / contract employee or just find another job if offered to go permanent.

I finally reached out to the new baby's mom and she finally brought the baby to our house about 2 weeks ago for about an hour. Well, months ago i told my wife that she was going to regret that once Christmas come. I'm responsible for buying gifts for the grandbabies while my wife focuses on our kids. She asked me if I was going to buy the baby anything and I told her no. I'm not buying a gift for a baby I've only seen twice in the past 5 months. The daughter's mom told me that she has family members on her side that she hardly lets see her kids. She is just protective that way. Am I wrong to not buy a gift for the new grandbaby? My wife feels we need to. I told her that if her son, the baby daddy, wants to buy her something he can but I wasn't. Am I wrong?

Apparently, this co-worker has a new boyfriend that she's introduced to everyone in the office except my wife. She wants us to go out to dinner with her to meet him. First of all I don't know the co-worker nor do I care to. And secondly, I could care less about meeting her new boyfriend. Guys don't do that. We find out a friend is dating a new girl and the most we say is, "cool". We don't plan outings or get togethers to introduce her. It's not like my wife and this co-worker hang out after work or anything so I don't understand why there's a big thing about introducing your new boyfriend to the people you work with?

We have Dish Network and they have a new receiver capable of broadcasting in 4k. However, they just told me that they don't have any current channels that broadcast in 4k resolution yet. Then why are they offering the upgraded receiver if they don't have any programming? They wanted to charge us $100 for the upgrade but we'd still get the same resolution as before. He did say that we would see an increase in our reception but probably not 4k resolution. Is this sort of a bait and switch thing going on here? Pay the upgrade, get the new receiver, but then, oh, we don't have any channels that broadcast the 4k signal yet. Does anyone broadcast in 4k resolution? You see all these new TV commercials promoting the better TVs but they are failing to mention that no one is broadcasting in that high resolution yet. Any advice?

    My 22 year old daughter is home from college for winter break and last night she was in our living room laying on the sofa watching Netflix on our big TV. My wife's 22 year old son, who may spend one or two nights a week at our house, was on his way home from his girlfriend's house, who he spends most nights a week with. My wife's other 23 year old son was on his bedroom. Years ago when everyone lived at home we had a set of bunk beds in the boy's room but when the oldest one moved out the youngest one didn't want the bunk beds anymore she he got rid of the top bunk. Well, the oldest is now back home with us. Anyway, whoever gets home first usually gets the bedroom and the other has to sleep on the sofa. My wife knew her son was coming home so she alluded to the fact that my daughter needed to leave the living room and go back to her room so her son could go to sleep. I kindly told her that the living room was not a bedroom if someone was in there watching TV and her son would have to wait. There have been times when I would even be doing something in the living room and she'd ask me to come to the bedroom so her son could have the living room. I told my wife I wasn't going to make my daughter go back to her room simply because her son decided he wanted to come home. She now feels like I put my daughter over her son but isn't that what she was trying to do, put her son over my daughter? It's a living room, not a bedroom.

Now that we're at our desks working they placed my desk next to that girl. The other girl quit because she couldn't handle the job. While on the phone with the customers I'm trying to give them all the information they are requesting but I'm constantly being pinged via the inner office messaging system from the girl asking me if I need help with the call. It's like she's listening to what I'm saying and finds every moment to tell me I'm wrong or wanting to help me. We have been instructed to when we have a issue or problem we can't figure out to send an email to a higher team and they will look into it. That's what I'm doing. However, this girl is more concerned with listening to my calls than working her own desk. I'm trying to be nice but my patience is wearing thin. She just listened to a call and while discussing with the customer she pings me saying, "do you need any help?" I replied "no". I could understand it if she had been with the company for years but she was in the same training class as me. How do I be nice and tell her I'm forwarding the problem calls to the higher ups and I don't need her help on everything?

    As I've mentioned before my brother and I had a major falling out several months ago because of him cheating on his wife. He wouldn't stop and eventually lost the house that they built from ground up and is now going through his second divorce at the age of 49. He had to move back in with our parents and is now sleeping on their couch. The sale of their house put $26,000 in his pocket and instead of finding an apartment he went out and spent $17k on a new (used) Chevy Tahoe. He constantly likes to send group texts to the siblings stating "the good things that God has done for him" but I find it sickening. To keep down the confusion I choose not to say anything to him about it. He'll send out a text saying, "I got my title in the mail today." Oh, and the truck he gave to his son there was nothing wrong with it. He just wanted a newer ride because the people at his church were upgrading so he wanted to as well. This morning he sends out a text to say that he's getting a $900 bonus from his job. Am I wrong to think that no one really cares, especially me? The good things that are happening to you are a result of the bad things that you've done so don't thank God for any of it. Get your life together and your priorities in line then maybe someone will be happy for you. Should I say something to him or just keep my mouth shut? I'm tempted to tell my siblings to remove me from the group text because I don't want to keep hearing his updates.

For years we'd always just stop by and sit with them even if that meant several times a day. Well, I would usually stop by on my way home from work a few times a week, like every other day. I recently took a job that had me working in the next state and it takes me about an hour to get home. By the time I get back to our city I've been in my car some 45+ minutes and it's starting to get dark and I'm tired so I've gotten to the point to where I don't stop by as much. Yesterday morning one of my sisters text me to say that she feels some kind of way about me not stopping by our parent's house as much now. I don't know if my mom said anything to her or if she's taking this on herself but I'm wondering how I should handle this. My sister lives in our city too but she only goes by our parent's house maybe once a week and that's typically on the weekends. The thing is this, my three other brothers still live at home with our parents so it's not like they're there alone. With my job being farther away I just don't have the time like I use to to just stop by for a visit every other day. What should I say to my sister and why would she even care since she's not going over but once a week herself? My parents do tend to rely on me for certain things.

Right now they are 22 and 24 and we're struggling financially in our house. I set the rule earlier this year that they now must pay rent. My wife hated this idea because my 22 year old daughter, who's away at college doesn't have to pay a dime. Well, the house rule was as long as you're in school we'll cover you. Her 24 year old is a felon and barely made it out of high school. Her 22 year old only got a 2 year associates degree and thinks that he should be making $60k a year. Right now he works at a cafe. Well, rent for them was assessed at $200 a month. my wife thought that was too much because of their working situation. I told her that if they can't pay that they could either get better jobs, a second job, or move out and try to pay rent somewhere else.

    With Thanksgiving coming up tomorrow my wife and I are hosting her entire family at our place. Two incidents in the past few days are showing me that she just doesn't want to do anything to help me out. I love to cook, always have. We divided up the menu between all the adults coming so each person could bring a dish or two. We're doing the bulk of the work. My wife can cook but is not a cook. Meaning, she'll cook to eat but she's not a person who will cook for a group. I told her that I just wanted her to focus on cleaning the house while I prepared the meal. She told me no because she didn't want me going around saying I fixed everything. She said she'd fix something. This is what she told me. She said, "I don't mind cooking as long as I don't have to cut anything." She hates using knives and would rather spent 3xs the money for chopped onions, celery, bell peppers, etc than to just cut one up we already have. Last night after I got off work I had to drive 2.5 hours to pick up my daughter from college. While on the road my wife called me about cleaning the bathroom. We live in an old house and there's no ventilation in our bathroom so it tends to stay hot which creates moisture. That in turn causes an excess of mold and mildew to grow. My wife said that she wanted me to spray that when I got home and my response to her was this. "I'm 100 miles away from home right now and you're 10 feet from the bathroom, you spray it."

Tues I didn't text at all until later in the day when she sent me a series of texts saying how it was funny that I could text Mon but I'm quiet today. I explained to her that I was working and training and didn't have time. She wasn't hearing that answer. Her reply was basically, "oh, so weren't you training Mon? It's funny you could text that day." Ok, yesterday, Wed, wasn't that big of a training day BUT I was still at work and again, during some down time we had some back and forth texts. Last night in the store she made the snide remark. "Oh, you weren't busy today because you seemed to find time to text." I can't get my wife to understand that some days and times I'm available to text her but others I'm not. She even made the comment that I had time to go one Facebook and like one phone but couldn't text her.

Well, several years ago I bought myself a nice KitchenAid mixer that I always wanted it. My wife has professed to not even knowing how to turn it on. Well, last night I get home from work and she was fixing some sort of corn dish to take to work for like a pot luck thing and I noticed my KitchenAid mixer bowl in the sink. Thinking she wasn't baking anything I asked her why my bowl was in the sink. She said she used it. I asked for what and she said to mix her dish. Again, think she wasn't baking anything I asked to see the recipe. She wouldn't give it to me but she did say that her recipe called for her to put the corn in a blender or food processor (which we have both) but she decided to use the mixer. I told her we had a food processor and she had a startled look on her face like "Where!" I pointed it out on the counter right behind her. I told her the difference between the mixer, the food processor, and the blender is that two of them had blades which is why the recipe called for one of those to be used. She had to puree the corn. At that point she refused to take the dish to work. However, my wife is one of those to where when I say "my kitchen" she gets highly offended. She feels that as a woman it's her kitchen.
