difficult child closed down his apartment and moved to NC temporarily. He packed his gadgets with great care and brought them. Unfortunately, he only brought 3 pair of underwear. Not essential I guess. I sent him to a less expensive dept. store to purchase underwear. After he arrives home I ask "how much". He said about 20.00. I'm thinking "hmmmmm that seems a lot for a package of underwear". The next day he finally gets around to bringing in the bag from the car. I look inside at the receipt. 19.99 for 2 pair. He bought 64.00 of underwear that won't even get him through the week. It's not like he is a GQ kind of guy and likes nice underwear. He could care less! Just shoot me and put me out of my misery!!! I explained that he worked more than 10hrs to buy underpants. difficult child only sees that I am not happy with his purchase. It takes him great effort to go to a store, look for the right dept, and buy anything that isn't a gadget. It is a cause for some stress for him. For me to not be happy reinforces that he screwed up. We talked about how this is life. We make mistakes and we take them back and get our money back. He was not happy to return them. (another stressor) but he did do it. I'm looking for 6 pr of undies for less than 20.00!!! difficult child thinks underwear is underwear. What's the big deal? I hope he marries someone who can handle the money because this is definitely not his strength.
