well, a big fight last night (which I precipitated)...
My stepson shut down his wife's business (which is in the family's name) because some of the checks were in his name...he is now insisting that she should "do the books" so he can see where the money goes.
Since she is an accountant, that sounds logical. Except that last week she spent all week running booths at TWO trade fairs (He was supposed to help but found he had "too much work" at home)...
And he is insisting that the livelihood, i.e. small craft projects so poor people can work in villages instead of going to cities or overseas, be shut down until SHE gives him a report.
Now, I am not a good accountant, but I can analyze books, and they are in order...but they are in excel and multi level bookkeeping, which take time to analyze. He insists he wants them in "quickbooks", but when I offered to do it, I wasn't given the disc...(I finally "borrowed" it when he was out on an errand).
The problem is that Im not sure how to enter, so I am doing it on quicken...and I can extrapolate the rest.
But he won't accept the data that I've done.
This is all games, of course, He is jealous of his wife, and is destroying her work to prove his masculinity...I thought these things went out in the fifties (heck, even in the fifties, women usually didn't put up with that crap). He even throws in bible verses to prove he needs to be obeyed...duh...one lousy verse, and ignore the rest of the bible?
He hates me because I knew him before he was a man...he thinks I hate him, but I merely don't respect him and I am not requied to obey him or keep my mouth shut.
Probably he'll find a way to throw me out a minute after my husband dies ( I suspect he will run the businesses in the ground, as a "passive aggressive" way to make my husband poor) and then say he is going back to the USA to work...
leaving me high and dry.
Ah, the pleasures of familiy life.
