Am I Overreacting?
My husband’s friend has moved in and has been sharing our house with us for almost 4 months.
He’s always on time with rent, courteous with cleanliness, cooking and guests. In all aspects he is a great roommate, which is why I’m a little ashamed about my feelings towards one small thing. He doesn’t have a job and he doesn’t care about getting one. He is content living life as a couch potato and in my opinion, unnecessarily collecting EI.
I realize that this is non of my business but my husband and I are very hard workers and enjoy going out every day and working. I should add that he has been given many opportunities to work and for decent pay but has always found an excuse as to why he doesn’t want to. It’s beginning to really bother me.
I think that EI should be used as a last resort when people are between jobs and actively seeking other employment. I keep telling myself it’s non of my business but it’s not decreasing the feelings of annoyance that I can’t shake.
What else can I do?
