Today, my husband and I went to the state fair. The entire time, he complained about all the money we were losing because of the high prices of both rides and food. Towards the end of the night, we counted the cash we had left and found we were $50 short. Apparently, it fell out of his pocket. FML

Your husband sounds like the kind of person who doesn't know how to let things go and just have fun - I mean, maybe this situation doesn't transpond past this one night but if you're posting it on FML I'm willing to bet you're a bit fed up with him and his overly cheap ways.

It's one thing thing to be frugal, I consider myself to be, but it's a complete other thing to be cheap to the point where when going out for a nice time with your significant other you can't look past the expenses [unless they're completely outrageous and out of the norm, though at a Carnival/Faire you kind of expect it to begin with] and let loose.

I'm not saying divorce the guy - That's stupid and I'm sure at least a few dozen people are going to give you that suggestion WITHOUT any insight, but, it's worth sitting him down and letting him know that money isn't as important as the time you spend with him.

I never said that. I'm saying if she was with him she could see if he really did spend that much money. If he didn't then, he lost it. I don't see why people dint understand what i'm trying to say

Thats what i figured.

I hate how overpriced the fair is, but OPs husband could have at least shut his yap so they could try to have some fun

Oh well, some people just enjoy complaining.

I personally am bothered by complainers I can't stand any form of negative energy because it brings me down and ruins my day.

But, I do get tired of preppy, annoying, happy people at the same time.

I guess the only type of people I get are the ones who know when to shut up. I can't stand ignorance.

Ohhhh-kay, time to stop rambling. Heh.

YDI. He definitely didn't lose that $50, he pocketed it so you wouldn't keep spending all of his hard earned money on junk food and shills. Maybe you should bring your own cash next time you want to waste it and you'll know why he was complaining...
