So, an interesting thing has happened at work.
Rumor has it the outside company that handles our payroll hasn’t been sending in my employer’s match for my retirement plan contribution.
I overheard that rumor yesterday. I still haven’t been told anything officially, as I suspect they are still checking in to it.
At any rate I filled my husband in on the news yesterday. And he is livid. Completely up in arms. “How could someone do that? How could they just not send in the match?”
Me? Eh. Every time he starts in about it I think “really…this is not the worst thing I’ve ever had to deal with. It can be fixed – it will be fine.” I’m not worried about it or even mad about it.
“She (the woman at the accountant’s office responsible for our company accounts) should be fired! You need to do something!”
And I keep thinking – why? Why should she be fired for screwing me out of 4 years of my employers match and yet I didn’t divorce you for screwing 2 women and breaking your vows to me?
If I had my pick I’d chose in tact vows over money any day!
Is this supposed to show me something about him? Does he value money more than vows? Or is he really that distressed about my retirement?
I guess I feel a little like – well…it’s par for the course of my life. Screwed out of a good, healthy marriage…screwed out of good physical health…screwed out of years worth of employer match.
I suppose just like everything else, only time will tell how this pans out and where my husband’s concern really lies. But at this point I really don’t care one way or the other.
