The passive aggressive motto when it comes to anything we need or want done “do it yourself”. If you’re waiting on your passive aggressive boyfriend/spouse/partner to do anything for you, you may as well leave it in your will for your heirs to get it done. Giving credit where credit is due, I now write a small list on the bottom of the grocery list hanging on the refer. It has it’s own head line “BF To Do List” and on it I write the things that still need to be done on his days off. So far this has worked pretty well. In the beginning I was the one scratching things off as they got done, but this last weekend when the BF fixed our faucet, he crossed it off himself.
While his going back to work has been a good thing in some ways, it’s like he has totally become irresponsible. The type of work he does he should be tracking time and travel, yet he would rather just collect the check from the company and he doesn’t seem to care if they short him. He needs a doctor’s appointment for a refill on his pills, yet still doesn’t call. He needed to still file papers with unemployment and he let that go and go. I finally told him I was turning all household finances over to him. If he’s not going to worry about anything (since he hasn’t had to in the last 11 yrs.) neither am I. I want to do what he does. Turn over my check to someone and let them worry about the bills.
I don’t want to be the one who worries any more. I want to be the one that just goes and gets what I need and the money is always there for me. Speaking of which, I think it’s about time for a vodka. LOL
