Sorry ladies, I didn’t have the right title the first time around. if an admin could delete the first topic, that’d be great!
Self explanitory– lend me your stories!! Here are a couple of mine!
Darling Mr. LR will be finishing up grad school and moving elsewhere to work. Well, we found him a wonderful place to live an dthis and that. They don’t have many of his banks in this new city, so he is probably going to change his bank. He tells his mother this after we sign a lease. What does she say? “Don’t switch accounts because I won’t be able to check your account and put money in it if it gets low”. Um EXCUSE ME?! A grown a$$ man with an awesome job does not need his mother to be checking his account. If he’s in a bind and needs help getting on his feet, then he’ll ask for a loan. Let’s just say, he felt my statement saying we will be changing bank account and neither of our families will have access to it or any knowledge of our financial situation, was seen as a criticism of his mother. I may be a Daddy’s girl, and I know my parents would have no problem helping me right out of school if I need it, but I think because I have a sibling, I am more independent.
Oh, and to further my point: when I told him he should put me down as one of his emergency contacts (he already put his dad), just in case, he goes “well, now I have to put my mom. She would be devastated if I put you and not her”. That really hurt my feelings! I gave him hell for it the rest of the day. That’s the worst thing: his mother’s opinion counts for too much. She’s the sweetest woman ever, but come hell or high water, I am going to break the Momma’s boy cycle.
