I don’t know where to post this, so I figured this is the best place.
As far as I see it, my SO has a gambling problem…she loves going to Bingo. Now its not like she goes there every night, but she usually goes everyweekend. Regardless of our finacial situation at that time. (She’s put is in pretty hot water before.)
Any way, I call her today at home, as she is at home sick today, to get things ready for our day out tomorrow…no answer…I call again…no answer.
I figured she’s gotta be sleeping…so I call again…and again…and again…and so on.
She obviosly isn’t home so I call her friends. (She sometimes goes there if she is at home during the day.)She says she isn’t there.
SO now I’m sitting here stewing wondering where she is…then the though occurred to me…“Has she gone to bingo?” I didn’t think she would do that…she KNOWS to ask/let me know first as she knows I HATE her going.
<Flash back…I played on a baseball team and came home early one weekend…she wasn’t home and I caught her a bingo…I gave her shit and she told me that she was going to tell me that she went…[yeah right])
So, I dig up the bingo halls number and low and behold…there she is!
I obviously go mad. She said that she wasn’t paying and a friend was treating her…but ya know what? I don’t
believe her! (She’s supposed to be home sick!!!)
I know she’ll say she was going to tell me that she went, but ya know what? I DON’T BELIEVE HER!
(Do the math…she tells me everytime she goes and the only times she goes first and then has the intention of telling me are the times I catch her…I’m not buying it…)
Anyone else been in this situation? How can I explain to her that Bingo=Gambling??? How do I get her to stop? (Or at least not go so much???)
