Murphy is Bound to Show Up

June 30th, 2018 at 03:36 am

The reason why I save something every time I get paid or receive extra cash is the following.

Last night I came home, and the SO other was very upset. So I asked what’s wrong with you? He proceeds to tell me that “his mom’s a/c unit is out, the cost to repair he’s not happy with, and that everything is crashing down on him, and he wanted to cry.”

Well I don’t say a word because all I’m thinking is, you better have your share of the rent, electric 💡 and water 💦 bill.

His daughter is pregnant, the ex cancelled her insurance so he’s footing the bill, for that. 🙄

The point I have been trying to make to him is that, you need to save a dollar as my mother would say. Murphy is going to visit, and some times he’ll set up shop and won’t leave for quite sometime.

Now there are a number of things that he should be doing that he’s not, like taking this business from his mother, asking the mother why she has no money to fix her a/c, saving a few dollars, having his lazy pregnant daughter get a job. But hey, who am I to say. I’m just socking away my few dollars, paying down my debt and looking at the big picture, and that’s a nice move out date. It’s a slow process but it’s coming along. As soon as I can knock a few of the CCs out,I’m gone, or he is. One of the two

    You are right about Murphy. There will always be something you don't expect and will need to spend money on. Although, I don't think your brother should be responsible for his mother's a/c, unless dire circumstances. I wonder if his anger and emotions will be his rock bottom to set boundaries.

    If she’s under 18 shouldn’t she be eligible for some kind of state or federal insurance? Medicaid or something like that? Assuming her parents can’t afford insurance?

    CCF this was the significant other, my ex fiancé.
    Butterscotch, I have no idea about the state funding and honestly I’m staying free and clear of this nonsense

    Opps! Sorry, Amber, I mistyped. I was referring to your SO.

    You are so right, Murphy tends to show up when we least expect it so you are smart to squirrel away money to keep Murphy at bay.

    It sounds like your SO's life is starting to crumble. Hopefully you can exit before all his troubles become yours.

    That is extremely pitiful they should encourage them and don't have the foggiest idea about the explanation for it yet they ought to in any event deal with it.
