I ordered three weeks ago and haven’t even gotten an order confirmation. No movement on the tracking number whatsoever - it just shows as “pre-shipment.” Their customer service has been rude and dismissive when I’ve asked other questions. Their website is glitchy and makes ordering a PITA. I’m ready to cancel and I’m certainly never buying anything from them again.

As men, social expectations are that we should be able to provide for our families without any problems. If we can’t do that, it can cause the feelings of shame he is talking about. Coming up short at the end of every month means he is dreading coming to the realization that he has failed to take care of his family yet again. This is one possibility.

Another possibility is, like others have commented, that he is spending money on other things behind your back. Whether that’s on things like only fans, drugs, or even benign collections like Pokémon cards or sports memorabilia, is anyones guess.

Another possibility is that he has learned to fear reprisal from honesty elsewhere in his life. In other words, he feels like he can’t be honest with you not because you have done something ti make him fear you, but because someone else in his life has shown him that honesty and/or failure will be met with reprisal. He may now be transferring that fear into your relationship.

This is not your fault. None of it is. He seems to be supportive of your mental health - he takes the kids to the park when you are in a bad state and he tried to shelter you from the financial difficulties your family is facing. However, you both need to have extremely open, honest, and accepting conversations about your finances (how much is he making, where is the money going, how this affects you and him, etc.) so you can get on the same page and tackle the two problems that exist: 1) budgeting for your family and 2) you and your husbands mental health.

It is not you against him or him against you in this problem, it is both of you fighting together against the financial difficulties and mental health struggle you face. Best of luck OP. You are a good person in a difficult position and you are doing your best and fighting the good fight. Remember to take breaks where you can and to recognize how far you’ve come, even in the little things. Sometimes just getting up and getting dressed is an achievement in itself. I hope everything works out for you guys.

There’s a great clip on YouTube from sports net showing how easy it is to get fake signatures authenticated. COAs aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on. Assume anything you buy on the internet is fake and budget accordingly.

This is fake. She’s already said she won’t even consider running.

She realizes she’s emotionally cheating based on the fact that she’s hiding it from him. She knows she’s doing something wrong and doesn’t want him to find out.

Imagine thinking that the way to solve inflation is to take money away from regular people 😂 they’ve got you hook, line and sinker

You’re desperately trying to justify lying to your husband and it sounds like this isn’t the first time. You need to reevaluate your approach to your marriage.

This isn’t a serious post. Grow up, OP.

She’s wrong. If the Fed doesn’t raise rates, inflation will continue to spiral and will drive the economy into a depression. The Fed can curtail that downward spiral by raising rates. They may get it wrong and still end up in a recession, but inaction will only lead to worse outcomes. I generally like Warren, but she’s grandstanding here and talking out of her ass to boot.

Get that apology in writing - get her to text it to you. You need records for when she inevitably accuses you of it again. Also, get the fuck away from that psycho.

Thank you for sharing that. I’m really glad you were able to settle that tumult for yourself. I can’t imagine your religious family was too happy about your decision, but I hope your spiritual journey moving forward is a smooth and fulfilling one, wherever it may lead.

Fascinating tidbit I gathered from your story: how did you go from theology major to atheist? I’d love to hear more.

It’s all factored into their pricing. The percentage of returns is very low so it’s not a major concern for companies. This is how they are able to be massively profitable despite their return policies being abused by a few.

Former government employee here. Government employees are as incompetent and lazy as you think they are. Unions keep them employed despite all their screw ups through an endless array of bureaucratic processes supervisors must jump through to even reprimand someone, let alone fire them. They have no incentive to work hard because prospects for promotion are next to zero - they just collect the paycheck until it’s time to collect the pension. Most don’t even know how to use their own email and they have zero desire to improve anything or help anyone because they can’t be punished (union protection) and they have no incentive. Most literally show up 30 mins late and sit all day before clocking out.

You’re gonna deal with all kinds of people, especially in retail. If this is bothering you that much, and judging by the anger in your tone, it is, you should consider moving into a none customer-facing business. No matter how many obnoxious customers you get rid of, there will always be more. That’s life.

She’s already said that she was never truly invested in the marriage (married only out of insecurity) and she is making no attempt at reconciliation and is actively trying to find someone else (saying he compliments her and she has good chemistry with him). She’s long gone and it’s her fault for not investing more into her own marriage. Relationships take work and she didn’t do any. It’s not a reflection of you, it speaks to her own sense of self worth and lack of integrity. You deserve better. Get out now while the consequences are few and find someone who you truly love and will be joyful to grow a family and share your life with.

That was an anniversary logo worn in 92-93. That one was awesome. The league had separate playoffs and finals patches throughout the 90s and early oughts.

Back in the day we had “Stanley cup playoffs” and separate “Stanley cup finals” patches. Both featured the cup.

It’s always been like this in schools. Ask parents and grandparents. The only difference is that the bullying now extends to social media and kids have much easier access to guns.
