Sooooo, as I’ve mentioned before in a few of my posts, I have NO idea where my SO is in the ‘grand scheme’ of the proposal that he swears is coming someday. All I know is he plans on asking me to marry him as soon as he “has the money for the ring”. That is his answer every single time it comes up. I figure there are a couple of possibilities:
A) He has the ring to propose and he’s just waiting for a special occasion
B) He’s still trying to save up for the ring but will have it soon
or the most disappointing scenerio:
C) He hasn’t even started saving for the ring yet, or he’s in the very beginning stages of saving
With this is mind, it irritates the crap out of me every time he talks about some extravagant purchase he wants to make. i.e. it’s been that he wants to buy a new tv soon (mind you, there’s nothing wrong with the tv we HAVE, it works fine and it’s a flat panel and only 4 years old, but he wants a BIGGER flat panel… *rolls eyes*), or it’s been that “when we have some extra cash” he’d like to get us a third car so we have something to use when one of our cars is on the outs. When he says these particular things, after a few minutes to cool off, I’m able to let it go easily because he is obviously talking about future purchases and nothing that he’s actually trying to work into the budget right now.
But a couple days ago, he had some equipment delivered for his truck. That was okay, it was just a few new speakers, and we just got done putting new speakers in my car, it’s only fair (I’m not crazy!) But then he proceeded to tell me that he needs to start saving up about 3k so he can do some other things to his truck that he wants (lift kit, some big tires, man stuff).
my face: O_O
my internal dialogue:
like, SERIOUSLY!?! *sigh*
