My boyfriend lost his job about two weeks ago, still hasn't gotten another one, and it's starting to stress me out. Our money is going to be tight until he gets a full paycheck. I just almost had a breakdown in McDonald's because he bought a shamrock shake and was trying to get me to buy one too. I just can't waste over $3 on a shake I only half wanted because he brought it up. I can afford it, but we still need to scrape by for two more weeks until my next payday. Who knows what will come up until then? He seemed annoyed that I didn't get a shake so now I'm emotional about that too. I had to bite my tongue and not look at him on the ride home so I wouldn't ask him what the hell he was sighing for. I got home, locked myself in the bathroom and cried it out as quietly as possible. His friend lets his wife manage their money and tell him what they can buy. But I'm not bossy enough to do that. I don't want to boss him around or treat him like a child. But I wish I would've just told him until he gets another job we'll have to do without.
