WARNING! - LONG RANT okay, so last January, I got out of the military. I was unemployeed for 6 months, not for a lack of trying, and I had to sell everything. Every single musical item that I owned, just to keep food on the table, rent paid (kind of) and even still I had my truck repoed. Then, in July, I got my current job in which I am able to pay all bills, feed mouths, and so on, but not really sock anything away. Now comes the fun part. Our tax return that is coming in a week is over $5,000 ... my wife and I discussed the things that we were going to catch up on (pay off car and such) ... i just wanted to buy a $200 bass to fart around on in what little free time I already have ... And, instead of getting the "sure, honey, I know that you have been missing that" ... I got, "But we need to get this and this and this" ... now, understandablly, I know that we have some responsibilities here, but come on ... it was 5K that we didn't have last week, and that we will now get next week, so 200 bucks here ain't gonna kill us ... Now, am I just getting selfish and pissy, or am I within 100 yards of having a valid point?
