...... okay...going to explain.
He DID NOT BUY MY HORSE.
When I was working for our room and board, it was an in home hospice kind of deal. I cleaned, did laundry, cooked, changed a 90 yr old mans diapers, chased down an 80 yr old woman who thought she was five all day, and babysat 2 13 yr old girls in the afternoons, and for the last half of it, I was also cleaning up after said elderly couples daughter (a 43 yr old meth head). I did this 24/7, as he was often up in t he night with terrors. Since we've left, i've required therapy, and am on meds for anxiety. All of which i'm paying for. He lived in clean well fed comfort, and if you knew of him and I before, you'll know that it was rocky anyway. He insisted I wasnt "working" but he had everything he needed provided for him as far as home and food. All he paid for was his truck, and 300 a month which is all my horse cost him. (the cash bonus I got once a month wet to fun stuff for horse, fiance and me)
Our agreement upon moving into our place, was splitting everything down the middle. Half the rent, half on the groceries, half on electric, he pays his truck, I pay my horse. Its turned into I pay 3/4 of the rent, most of the groceries, all of our electric, and my horse and now the shop truck i've taken as a personal vehicle because I can't drive his.
The reason I can't drive his truck, is the same reason he's in debt. He got into an accident texting, and needs a new bumper. He broke his headlight on a horse trail (moron) and needs one of those. He punched and broke his steering wheel, it wiggles and floats all over the place. He also has a suspended license because he didnt pay a ticket for not having a bumper on. He's in debt because of his own irresponsibility. Not from my horse.
Thus far, i've taken the stance of shutting my mouth. I don't talk about what i'm doing at the barn, or how much my last tack store order was, or anything. I GLADLY take on our bills so he can figure himself out,
However, I am not sure where the money is going, as he's been aware of all of these issues for a couple of months,a nd not done anything but b*tc* about how theres no money.....i make less than he does.
