    Default So underexcited (a mini vent)

    So you'd think I'd be excited, trading in our current 4WD getting a newer one with more room, DF's dream car and apart from one tiny debt we will now be debt free.

    But I'm just going to have a mini vent that it's a car I can't drive. I have tried learning to drive a manual I just can't do it, I have fried 2 clutches trying to learn it's just not within my capabilities. So instead of investing this money into a car we can both drive I'm stuck driving my crappy $4000 bomb. Much like I am stuck using the crappy broken laptop while hubby gets a shiny new one, ok well we bought a temporary one that hubby is currently using until he can buy another new one, then I get the slightly new used one. You get the point.

    How come I get all the crappy used ****? Am I not worth more? Ok I probably shouldn't be basing my worth on **** like this but it gets old after a while. He is walking around like a chuffed school boy wondering why I am not he least bit excited actually he is sort of confused I think because I am constantly whining about our current 4WD being too small and this one is much more roomier.

    Plus it's bright red, a huge red 4WD, wont miss us a mile away

    i'd be throwing a tanty over the laptop...i would get the newest one lol

    As for the car...learn to drive a manual!!

    I would also be insisting on some good stuff for you. I also used to always get 2nd best, my exh always get the best, i got the left overs. It wasn't until my current DH bought me new things and I was shocked, that I realised it was a long term issue.

    I was the youngest child, always got hand me downs. I was the youngest cousin etc etc.

    If you want to change things, it is going to take you changing your expectations

    I understand, my hubby always seems to be buying tools that I have no use with and then wonders why I don't walk around on cloud 9 with him.

    HUGS

    Maybe its time to get something special just for you...

    Why can't he get an auto 4wd? I would be furious if dh bought a car without considering me. Lol he still hears on a weekly basis about how I don't like the stereo he bought over a year ago without consulting me.

    I'd probably buy a manual if DH couldn't drive manual, just so I get exclusive use of it. I hate how he leaves my car (but we're a one car family and he's been driving trucks since he was a kid, so manual car's are no issue).

    DH also isn't allowed to use my laptop, he has a dinosaur laptop and an iPad.

    So I guess I'm the meany like your hubby.

    I don't see the need for me to have a new laptop all I use it for is bubhub/facebook/games and basic documents. Plus I have the ipad already. I have tried to learn to drive a manual, we have spent so much money on replacing 2 clutches because I have broken them it's just something I can't get I do get new things just yeah, nothing major.

    Yanno I can't actually think of anything I want for me, a new car but there isn't really anything wrong with my car.

    He wont get an auto 4WD because we actually go 4WDing and they are useless for roughing it.

    Default So underexcited (a mini vent)

    I know a few people in a 4wd club that have autos and they seem to do fine roughing it. Is that just an excuse?

    I would insist on something you both can drive!

    I don't think you can go proper 4wD in an auto car - kinda defeats the purpose of having a 4wd
