Nose to the grind

Today, my wife was lucky not to get fired from her part-time job for doing nothing since we went into lockdown 8 weeks ago. To celebrate this, she has downed two bottles of red wine and watched an entire season of Virgin River. Guess I’ll have to find a third job to make up the income when the inevitable happens. FML

I hope you spoke to her and let her know you found this behavior unacceptable. if you don't want her to keep acting that way you need to be clear with her about your feelings and not enable her

I went through this before at my old job, where I thankfully wasn’t fired either.

You and your wife may want to consider that she could have a drinking problem. Even if she doesn’t or gets the drinking under control, it will take a LOT of time and effort to fix these ingrained bad habits, and she will probably need help, support, and accountability on that front.

Good luck to you both, and I hope she gets all her stuff figured out before she loses her job.

How did that take eight weeks? I binged the whole season in one night -- they're so good about leaving you cliff hanging each episode you can't stop.

Ever since we found out Jack's sister was named Brie, the obvious question is: how into cheese were their parents? In Season 4, will we meet Gorgonzola and Gouda?

Have pity on your wife. If she watched Season 3, she's hanging off more cliffs than 10 bottles of red wine could help with.

Well. If you're going to stick with the headache, at least get the crazy side chick for the awesome lay and eventual entertainment between the 2.

Working insanely overtime to upkeep the lifestyle of somebody who refused to work never was, and never will be worth it. In fact, the time you barely spend with her will only serve to deteriorate the relationship even more. Then everything you've been putting your sweat and blood into gets sold off and divided or just wholely awarded to her. If you have kids, she'll be awarded custody because she's the one with the kids all day, and child support will be based on you having 3 jobs, so you'll be stuck working 3 jobs just to able to make the payments.

Now's the time to be upfront with her and tell her to contribute or kick rocks.
