Family Seasonal arugment post

Recommended Posts

Another year, another strop by my 7yo older sister. Shes 46.

After ~30 years of being out of school its dawned on her that getting a full-time job might be a good idea.

Shes been sort of living hand to mouth all the time. Car broke down on the motorway before xmas. There's no cheap ones to buy. Shes grumpy about it.

Her: 'What are you going to spend all your money on?'

'What I like. I earned it. Id have more money if I did not have to prop up dossers on the dole'

Her: 'Its hard getting a job'

'Err youve only worked part-time and took the entire summer off. Youre not a good bet for an employee. Id take my chances with a 16 YO from school'

Her: 'Its OK for. You like working.'

'Id rather do something else'

And so it continued.

All your money.

You like working.

 

This is the precursor argument to why don't you "lend" her several thousand pounds to buy a reliable car so that she can get this hypothetical full time job.

 

Followed by the job not materialising and your money never coming back short of a major scratch card win.

I nearly started this topic two weeks ago. My brother stormed off home after 2 days of my company. We were meant to be spending Xmas at my mums together. ("Storming off" around these parts involves an overnight train and considerable additional expense)

My last girlfriend is intelligent but won't work. She mixes with similar women....don't want to work.

They both have a sense of false entitlement and ponce off anyone who is stupid enough to give them money (me included).

And her friend has made her 8 year old son neurotic about money. He fingers lose change into his pocket and gives it to his mum. So the boy's not welcomed to houses.

Their excuse is that trying to balance work with children is impossible....even though they have extended family nearby. 

Basically they just don't want to work. They don't like the discipline.

And to finish off a really shiite xmas...my partners mum made a massive scene on Christmas Eve. She started screaming at me and said she was going to call the Police.....so I kicked them all out. Gone. 

Now peace has returned.   :)

My partner moved into my house when I was working in Scotland. I returned to find loads of her stuff in my house. She used my electricity, coal (solid fuel rayburn and woodburner) and eat my food.

Also she is an alcoholic....so I found empty wine bottles everywhere.

And to finish it off...she has threatened to call the police if I don't return all her stuff before I go back to Scotland tomorrow.

Obviously I've changed the locks.

 

Sorry...going a bit off topic here.

Basically she doesn't want to work. She'll find another mug asap.

All sounds like my ex. First thing she said to me was "I love my work" (teacher). First thing she did when we got married - stop working. In the arguments before the divorce (I left after a particularly horrible Xmas) she said, "why should I work like your (2) sisters in law, they are crap jobs anyway" Like most here I think work is an obligation. Of course She took everything she could in a financial settlement via lawyer. Ho ho ho

Crap.

I've come to think that relationships are just battle grounds.  

When I return back to Cornwall...I'm going to buy a faithful dog. Just me and a dog. Long walks followed by a visit to the local dog friendly pub.

90% of people become a teacher because 1) they dont want to work 2) noone else will employ them.

Taught on and off for twenty five years in eight different schools and now retired. In all that time I only encountered two duff teachers. The rest were dedicated professional trying to do the best for  young people. 

As a former infantry soldier I often found the teaching tougher than the soldiering apart from the active service bit.

Shes not gambling with her pension....

Once, just once, she earned over the tax free free alliwance.

The thieving givernment took all of money - all of  500/year tax.

That put her off working for life.

I explained that my monthly tax is about 2k.

That's one big problem. There are a lot who like to take out and not put in.  Which is one reason I am so pi$$ed off that my pension age has been put back to 67. Barstewards

P*ssy magnet - a dog will attract loads of nutty women.

Then again, last night I spend several hours in a house with several women who kept going on about the sole cat in the house. It was bad enough but the women's broken men all felt the need to join in. What is the cat doing now? Why is she sitting there? Is the cat annoyed? Why is the cat giving us this look? The cat is intelligent? The cat has contempt with us...

Cats are nutty but they also attract nutty women.
