Greatest Idea Ever/Long Story Ahead

Here's my plan to get my Top Secret Garage Car at the end of April, 2012, and get an engagement ring for my girlfriend. She wants it to be a surprise, hard to do when all of our accounts are joint accounts. Had to be a secret account , :Set up an account my girlfriend ( of 12 years, we have a beautiful 3yr old daughter ) doesn't know about at my work's credit union. Getting 300 a week taken out of my check and put into this account. -But isn't your girlfriend notice 300 dollars a week gone out of your check?-

Got that covered.

I work for a subcontractor for GE, I machine things for them. At my shop every machine you run after #1 you get 4.00 an hr additional. So say you make 19.00/hr on 1 machine, you run another machine you'll be making 23.00/hr. I run 2 machines.

So, my 2nd machine just so happened to "need a rebuild thats going to take 6 plus months". So she'll think nothing of the money not being there. So that takes care of the car.-So what are you going to do when she freaks the **** out when she see's the car in April?-

Got that covered.

Getting 10% more put into my IRA plan out of my check, so in April I will be taking out money for a 2 carat Diamond engagement ring.

Plan is to show her the car, and right before she blows up give her the ring.

Hell yeah

(She only checks out account online, she does''nt see my actual check stub, so she knows nothing about the other account.

well id say thats a great plan but god damn your whipped like a racehorse! I dont let finanical things get to that level with my girl and as long as I pay for her car and let her have access to my bank account she doesnt ask questions, and i have never given here online access nor has she asked.


Now, the plan I must hatch. I am 22 and having my 2nd kid in february..... How can I get a nice car and afford a house with her not working to watch the kids. that is something I must work on, sadly the cobalt must go but i havent been very happy with it being a base model and all, probably looking like a 04 GLI vr6 or an IS300 coming soon but Ive gotta be on a day to day budget, cutting out coffee and breakfast sandwiches really makes a difference in time.

I'm a machinist, her an RN. We own a condo, and have a 3 year old. She's put in her time, and nothing says that better than a 2 carat diamond

id say that but i chose to knock her up again, not by choice of course but we are making the best of it, im really struggling right now in the car business and am in need of a career change soon but sales really sucks when you having kids im never home.
