Dh works p/t half through previous unfortunate circumstances but half because he prefers it.
He enjoys his job and has less stresses than before.
Of course we are skint but I am a good budgeter!
So we cant afford treats but i bake to give dcs a treat for school break and occasional budget a 6 pack of crisps as these are dds favourite treat.

I used to have to hide them or dh would scoff them despite my saying these are for the dc. But recently we have had discussions and I expressed my frustration at having to go to the troubke of hiding treats. He should know as I do that we can only afford these as a little occasional treat for the dc. My treat is that I get to be a sahm, his treat is doing a piss easy job he loves p/t the kids miss out on stuff we could once afford so I like to get them a little treat for school snack every once in a while. They get fed up with scones/muffins/flapjacks that i have made.

Dh scoffed the last pavk of crisps that was in the basket for her snack today. Dh claims he ate them because only 1pack so thought it'd be ok. We have 2 school age dc and one preschool. Ds prefers a biccy as a treat so had one aside for him and crisps for dd who ended up in tears going to school with a biccy that she isnt fussed about.
Fed up wiyh everyone everyone making sacrifices and dh helpjng jimself to whatever he fancies :-(
So pissed off. Am i an unreasonable control freak?!

so a packet of crisps is a 'treat'? OK if this is for health reasons...but we are talking finance here. how is a 0.30p thing a treat?

it sounds like she has only applied for one job. if she can manage to find places to volunteer in, it would suggest there may be paid employment around as well.

she sounds like a control freak to me...but that may just be the way she words her threads

why should the working husband 'stock up on food'. shouldn't food buying by part of a SAHM's job?

Ok you are not drip feeding at all. (But I'd advise you to read your postings again and how much more/different info you add when people aren't giving an answer you are in agreement with).

What you have been is sweepingly rude to all posters on here who disagreed with you, and incidentally no one has called you a lazy selfish cow, you pulled that one out of the bag yourself:

Ffs honestly ....
Sad that so many of you read my op and labelled me a lazy selfish cow.
Honestly the absolute half wits on here astound me.
I will refrain from posting in aibu as I forgot the kind of posters it attracts.
Chasedbybees happy to welcome someone who has their full quota of intelligence to the thread.

Charming.

Can you decide f you are poor or rich and let us know because we are thick and we need clear wording.

Ok, here's my ten pence worth.

Yes from the OP you husband is an arse for eating a packet of crisps if they were your daughters.

From another of your posts yes he's an arse for eating the easter egg.

In another of your posts you say you have savings, why don't you just take a bit more out of there to buy more treats for your children.

Also you said you buy fruit and veg (very sensible IMO), but why don't you grow your own, very cheap to start and very rewarding to eat your own produce, therego saving more money to buy more crisps.
