I had the whole day planned to be cheap and fun!
Take the light rail to the city
Take atvantage of the National Aquirums $1 day
Packed a heathy but scrumshous lunch (thngs he likes, hogie with lunch meat packed goods)
Take atvantage of the fact this is our last weekend together because I took a weekend job
So 1st thing this morning he decides he wants to drive (like 20min) into the city. "Umm honey light rails cheaper", "no it's not", "go check the website"...."well it's $3.50 per person, so $14!", "No dear the kids ride free", "Maybe the baby but not the 4yo", "Go check"..."Oh 6 and under ride free". Well I've made up my mind anyway, I want to drive". "How much is parking?", "Well in DC the going rate is $8 bucks and it would be $7 for the light rail so just a $1 more", NO BIGGY, I've learned to pick my battles with this one,
We get there, he doesn't shop around he just parks in the closes garage.....
$21 yes I said TWENTY ONE F*CKING DOLLARS!!!!!!!!
We stand in line for about 20 min
:and are really glad we came early as the line is getting longer and longer. We get to the ticket booth and I wanted to ask if the baby was free (she is 20months). He told me "It's just a dollar" anyway she was free and I wasn't going to pay for her and didn't
We have a wonderful day looking at all the animals till we hit THE DREADED GIFT SHOP. I swear this man has NO will power (pulling hair out in clumps). He "feels" that he needs to support the aquirum since we didn't really pay to get in. On gees fine get a magnet, what ever. No he thinks we need to get the kids EACH a toy. I said "Honey we have not bought any new toys EVER for our kids", "yes we have!", "When?", "I can't think of any but they have gotten new things", "Yes dear as gifts from people!", "God will you STOP BEING SUCH A PENNY PINCHING B*TCH!!!"
He buy $27 dolars worth of overprised made in china crap
As we are leaving " guess I can't convince you to go over there to Chipolte for lunch?",
"Dude we have a lunch in the car", "yeah but its some where we like and its' cheap", "I packed us a lunch, it's good remeer I made those muffins you really liked", Sigh "ok".
So a day that should have cost
He is always like this but today I'm really pissed. I cam home and ripped apart pillows, lol. It was good for getting out my agression....I was floffing the filling to make "new" ones
Thanks for reading I'll shut up now
