It might be an important reason, but definitely not the only. You can't forget about the sex, good ol' sex.

I'm not even gonna lie, l used to do the same thing before we moved in together. You save money and spend time with your significant other!

Where I live gas is 3.09 buckaroos per gallon. Just like 1 said "Smart" , I probably would have done the same thing.

He probably doesn't go back to his own house every day, 51--otherwise, I'd agree. That wouldn't save money.

Smart and maybe, with the extra money he saves, he might treat you to a nice dinner/date night as thank you for letting him stay over so much.

I'm dreading the $4 point! Right now my gas prices in Oklahoma range from $3.43-3.79. Gas is such an evil necessity. I live in a town where there really isn't public transportation, so it's either drive or walk.

128, I let my boyfriend sleep over all the time because his work is only 3 miles away from my place. I really believe we are missing parts of the conversation the Original Poster and her boyfriend. For all we know, it could be one reason why and that's what she focused on.

Actually, I don't know if it's really that jerkish. From the way the FML was worded, it sounded like OP's boyfriend never said that was his reason. Instead, it sounded like that's what OP thought, which could just mean she's slightly paranoid. If OP had a legitimate reason to think that, however, then it is pretty jerkish.

54- He would be a jerk because he's basically staying with her to save money, not to help build their relationship. And the key word in your comment was probably. We don't know what he does with it.

70- I wasn't saying that he can't spend it on OP, I was just saying that we don't know what he does with it. If he does spend it on her, then this shouldn't even be an FML. But we can't tell with just the information given.

Yeah, I'm really curious how she "realized" this. Was he dumb enough to tell her it? Or did she go "I live closer to his work than his house... OMG HES ONLY SPENDING TIME WITH ME CAUSE ITS CLOSER TO WORK WHAT A DOUCHEBAG!!!!!"

It might be an important reason, but definitely not the only. You can't forget about the sex, good ol' sex.

Exactly. Now perhaps he has enough time to do it before he goes to work, which should make them both happy.

Exactly who cares the real reason he's there, just let him make you come and be happy. Win win.

These may be the most understanding and kind comments I've ever seen on an FML. Bravo to you all, you have warmed my heart.

Too many negative votes, comment buried. Show the comment

44- That does seem outrageous, but I'm curious, what is minimum wage there? That likely has a lot to do with it. In AZ gas is about $3.60 right now, but minimum wage is only $7.35 an hour.

Reply

64- Here in West Virginia gas is $3.98 a gallon and minimum wage is $7.25 an hour....wow....why is that so different? ?

Reply

88. I think the reason for that is because they have more taxes than the u.s. So $10 kind of evens out after taxes.

Reply

I thought the minimum wage for the US was a federal set level of $7.25. That's what the OSHA poster says in my break room. Does it vary state to state?

Reply

108 - Yes, it varies by state, but the lowest it can be is $7.25 (in most cases). If the job is not subject to the federal Fair Labor Standards Act, then state, city, or other local laws may determine the minimum wage.

Reply

88 - actually minimum wage in Canada varies by province. Do you live here? Also in Manitoba minimum wage is $10.50 but our cas prices are 1.29/Litre

Reply

In California minimum is 8.00 and gas ranges from 4.56 to 5.60. That's nearly half my check! >:(

Reply

108- yes, $7.25 is the minimum allowed by law, but each state can vary their minimum wage based on cost of living and things like that. So some states have a higher minimum wage, but that normally means it costs more to live there.

I am so torn between thinking your boyfriend is clever, and thinking he's kind of an ass. I guess you should be happy he's sleeping over at all, and maybe give him another reason why sleeping over at your place rocks. ;)
