So my hubby was supposed to start a new job today. When I got up I went downstairs and he tells me that he is gonna call and see if he can start tomorrow. I think this is effing ridiculous!! I was kind of pissed. He always does this. First he doesn't even have a job in so long then he gets one and can't even show up the first day. His excuse was that he didn't sleep well and we have lots of stuff going on today. First of all, what happens when you do start work and we have lots to do, are you just going to call off?? The guy at this new job really likes him and looked into his background and all that. So he wants him to work there and it seems like a good gig. I almost left him last week because I am sick of living like this. He never has a job and when he does he will quit over something stupid. I only make $300 a week and we have two kids to feed and clothe. I am just so frustrated right now. Why can't he just be a man and go to work???

That has to be frustrating! How do you call in on your first day! sheesh! I haven't heard of that before.. Maybe he's afraid of his own success. My "ex" was (is) like that. It's like if he gets something good going he can manage to lose it on purpose so that he's always the victim!

yeah that's exactly how hubby is!! Every job he's had since we've been together he has quit over some ridiculous reason. I have stuck out my crappy job for 5 years now. And I'm not going to quit unless I get another job first.

It's kinda odd, with all the people looking for jobs or who cannot work, you'd think he would be happy to be employed. I am looking forward to the day I get to go back to work myself!

I think he better get up and change. or he'll be waking up the next day some day with "divorce papers" on his lapI could do that because am single. but no man can do that when he has a wife and a kid to feed to. why does he even marry in the first place? you're pretty with a very cute kid. i think it's time for you to scare him a bit about you going with some one else. am sure he'll turn around..

I almost did leave him last week b ut then he got 2 jobs. He worked 2 nights at the one job and then quit. Then he starts this new job I guess tomorrow and he has another interview on Tuesday too. I am stupid for staying with him I know but I don't know what to do.

He's throwing his OPPORTUNITIES AWAY. you can tell him it's injustice hundreds of thousands of Americans who looses jobs every single day! and some day he himself will RAN out of opportunities the same way i did.

well, i know you have your means of getting his butt off of being a couch potato for so long. i think you need another strategy for him to look into your current situation. i once been into that i wasn't giving any money for my husband before and he can't buy his own too. that's why he don't quit over his job just that easy since he knew so well how's it being broke and all.don't pamper him in other things like his own personal needs.

Hun, this sounds terrible really. Lazy people are not for this life ... Now everywhere is hard to find a job, or to be good paid, so we dont have to be so pretentious.
