Default Inconsiderate during this pandemic ;(

Hey folks,

I just wanted to vent out a bit...
I am so stressed with my partner. It all started during the lockdown - she demands things that are impractical nowadays, especially that we are still under Covid19 restrictions.

I don't know if she understand what is going on - that the economy is not really doing well. The savings that I had is for future and emergency purposes, and not to be spend on wants. I am really stressed out because she doesn't understand that we should spend on important things. We aim to have a new car but since it is pandemic, we re-align our expenses. But she demands on buying a new one even the current car we have is still working.

She is inconsiderate

Anyway, patience is a virtue, talk (many times) about it, can't live with and can't live without... although I am not an expert at relationship issues I hope I can help a bit... anyone else?

Is your "current car", your Fisker? If so, I can see why you'd want something else - some use them as their DD, but I find that hard to do (long distances and large payloads aren't things that the Karma excels at).

She is not buying a Frisker but something else. I already explained to her that a car is not an investment. I'll wait it out a few days until everything and everyone is calm. hoping that she would understand.

With what's going on in the world and this simple argument, I really need skills to manage my stress.

Just an update, we didn't buy the car. She finally understood what I was explaining to her.

we are in a time of uncertainty and buying a car now is very impractical.

That is what I've been telling her, at least she finally listened.

I'm glad she listened to you, what's did she ask you in return?
