I tod y'll how he was more worried about how much I tend to cost that little additional grand was more on his mind than I arrived home safely & 5 pages later I'm surprised no one thought this strange

Why in the world would you think anyone here would think his reaction is strange?

Let's break this down from what I can remember:

YOU posted that your marriage is failing
YOU posted that you wore underwear that had holes in it so YOU would NOT CHEAT on your husband
YOU posted that you knew you were about to get fired but did nothing to improve your job performance
YOU posted that YOU drove into one vehicle and backed into another and tried to blame it on your
non friend friend
YOU posted that you were embarassed that someone's hair did not measure up to YOUR standards
YOU posted that this non friend friend had the nerve to prefer hot sauce on her shrimp
YOU think your day is horriffic when most of it has been caused by you

Yet YOU think everyone should have sympathy for you because as YOU posted YOU missed an interview because YOU DID NOT get specific directions to this interview and your husband is more interested in the cost of YOUR accidents.

Whichever kind person posted the comment, yes sadly it is all true.

At the age of 48 my life is totally *ucked.

She's married and begging you, someone she barely knows, to visit her daughter in the hospital? That's very odd.

Coming home to your SO after two accidents & him not being happy you are alive but being disappointed about how the repairs will cost HIM is horrific

speaking of which

Losing your job is horrific

As stated by others, you want sympathy yet YOU lied to get your previous job from which you were appropriately fired; you couldn't be bothered checking the address on google or mapquest to make sure you knew where you were going and where there was parking - or to make a dry run the day before (something many of us did to make sure we knew how long it would take at that time of day to get to the interview on time); you caused damage to your vehicle and other vehicles because you are a bad driver and unable to tune out distractions; you talk about others with incredible disdain whether in-laws or coworkers or even friends!

and now you want sympathy for your self-inflicted plight. Gaul, chutzpah, and arrogance are only a few of the words that come to mind.

Yeah, most of the OP was pretty strange (blaming others for her careless driving, mad that her husband was upset that she got into two accidents, driving lost for over 2 hours...) but to get upset over what condiment someone prefers on their food?!

Fast forward I had to call & say I would like to cancel & reschedule. Looks good its pretty much a guarantee I''ll get the job, plus I also have that offer job lined up, the one where I went to see the hiring manager with panties with holes So the unemployment is temporary so dont attack me there!!

So this girl I know, I dont even know how to start about our ""friendship"". But her daughter fell ill a while back & I was shocked when she called me & asked me to visit her daughter at the hospital. Now I just considered myself acquintances with her so I was shocked that she was ""begging for visits"". I realised she was pressed for friends so I went to visit her & her daughter at the hospital anyway. Since that day we have been talking more & more.

So today right after I had cancelled the interview & was on my way home, this girl calls me & asks if I wanna have lunch with her. So I pick her up, we go to the last place I got fired at as I forgot some stuff & we head out to lunch. On the way to my former employer I slightly hit the car in front of me. Thank God zero damage! Nonetheless I apologize to the car owners & all is good!

At this point she starts to ""direct "" me about how I should drive. And she starts announcing what colors the traffic lights are. This got me heated up. I become the bigger person & don't point out that I have been licenced to drive since I was 16 & she is not!Anyway doe when we get to my former place of employment I ask her to stay in the car & wait as I wont be long. Next thing I see her coming out of the car. I let it slide. As I pick up my stuff, she extends her hand & introduces herself to my former boss. I wanted her to to stay low & chill in the car. She had on this synthetic hair & her ""tracks"" were showing & she just looked greasy! I had been honest with her & told her her hair looked like a bird's nest & she agreed to that herself. Now I dont see why she would embarass me at my former job. I wanted to leave with dignity

So we head for lunch. And she is generally chronically unemployed & her husband is also presently unemployed During lunch (Chinese buffet) she dips EVERYTHING even shrimp in hot sauce. After lunch the waiter comes and asks if the bill is altogether or separate. She offers to pick both tabs. Normally I feed on people like this but I guess I still have a conscience so I tell her lets each pay for ourselves. Then it gets awkard because she had already asked for one bill & the waiter had made a bill for one & now I HAVE TO start calculating my part in my head!

After lunch we hop onto my car & I have my second accident of the day. Just as I reverse I hit another car. I look around, my car has a huge dent & the other one is miraculously okay.

At this point I start asking myself: What kind of tomfoolery is this? Who ever has two accidents in one day? Then I realise both accidents had something in common. This ""friend"" of mine was in my car.

I ask if I can drop her at the train station. She suddenly wants to pee & hates public bathrooms so of course it has to be done at my place!

We go to my place. She marvels at the mansion. Nothing new there. Then I start telling her nothing grew on trees, the SO & I both work. She knows I was let go but she has seen my hustle so no big deal. And I lecture her about her marvelling & oogling everything yet she & the hubby don't like to work. I guess that's when she gets tired of me & wants to go home.

Now this girl has the nerve to ask me to drive her home.
1) Remember she said I could not drive, was telling me when traffic lights changed colors etc? And suddenly her greasy behind wants a ride home? But I can't drive!

2) I have gone to two places with her and had two accidents. She is bad karma. Why would I drive her home just so I can have another accident?


3) When the SO gets home, he tells me in between the lights & the dent, fixing my car should be about 1500bucks. Then I realise I should have let her pick the whole bill at the restaurant. She got a free ride I got her bad karma plus her free ride is gonna cost me a lot of money.

4) When the SO analyzes the damage he complains about how expensive I am becoming instead of being grateful I survived an accident & came home unscathed.

What a bad day! END RANT!!
If you're a millionaire why you even worry bout jobs?

I suspect your "really bad day" is just one in a long line of future bad days. Your damage is all self inflicted.

I am a millionaire because I married well. I was not born one. I have always worked my whole life. What am I supposed to do during the whole day? Clean the house? I am young I need to build my career. Working makes you feel you are worth something.

Now I think you are just having us all on, pretending to be this person on cd to entertain yourself. The real false note is that there exists a man smart enough to be able to accumulate millions, but so dumb that he married a drama queen that cannot hold a job, that creates problems with every day she lives, that cannot appear to love him, that creates a bad environment for his child, that fights with his relatives and the neighbors over trivial stuff, that professes to have gone to Harvard but speaks in street language, etc. Something is not jelling here. No one can be that dumb.

You said you have worked your entire life but have no career as of yet. Why not? Makes no sense. Sounds like it might be a good thing to just hang out at the house (provided you do actually exist, as you have presented here) - it would be less expensive for him, if you did. It's not like any job you get is going to last that long anyway. They don't like drama at the work place - and it doesn't sound like you qualify, without lying.
