Trying to be supportive
I have been a trucker's wife now for a year & I will have to admit that at times it can be challenging trying to juggle the kids, a job & the finances. We do wear many hats.
I have stood by my husband through thick & thin but something came up & even my parents have chastised him, not to his ears but mine & especially my father won't let up.
My husband has lost all his keys which are the house keys, car keys & the keys to the truck & he had to get a spare from his team driver. The keys can be replaced. But on the keychain were items that I have gotten engraved for him, the kids got items that were engraved & my parents also have given him nice charms engraved that said loving husband, loving father & so forth.
Now I am hearing nagging from my parents especially my father saying things like "how the hell do you lose a set of f*****g keys & he wants you to run right out & get them made up at a hardware store, but the worst part is he lost all those cherished mementos that we had engraved for him, he is nothing but a f****g idiot & only kids lose stuff" & we all paid good money to have these things done for him!
My father wasn't much help by adding this & saying this to me "I bet he lost his keys because he probably had some floozy in that truck & he is making time with her while he is away from you & she took them" & my father also said you can hear keys drop on the floor or the ground & he said he shouldn't be allowed to drive a big rig since he is like a kid & what's next him losing his wallet & his license!
And I found out that when my parents were at my house & I had stepped out of the room, my husband called & my father hit ignored & then he went into my contacts & blocked my husband so when I did call him, he told me I was trying to call you & I got your voicemail & I asked my father why he did it & he said that I don't need to talk to a child!
Now my mother sticks up for my father & tells me that your father knows best & he can read people so if he feels idiot boy is an idiot then he is one!
I love my parents but have there been any wives out there that their husbands have lost their valuables.
I am also having friends tell me that with these guys on the road for over a month or more before they get home, that yes, indeed, they are playing the field!!!
