I can't believe he did it!

Mark traded his Charger in yesterday!!! And didn't tell me until I called him mid process... That was his retirement present to himself when he retired from the Army. He LOVED that car!
I was shocked and cried. He did it to get something that had lower payments. To me I don't think it was worth it. He only saved about $150 a month and the insurance was hardly any change- about $25 less for 6 months. He got another truck, a lot like the one he had before he was deployed. He turned that in when he left so we wouldn't be making two payments while he was gone. So now we have two trucks again. Mine is a Dakota quad cab and his is a Ram regular cab. So it puts all of us up front and it isn't all that comfortable. Don't think it will save on gas either, it has the same size HEMI engine in it that the Charger had but weighs more so I don't see how it will be better. I feel like if he was really trying to cut bills he would have gone with something a lot less $ and way better on gas. But typical Mark (male?) he was willing to make a sacrifice but only to a point.
Oh well, he says he is OK with it so I'll take him at his word and let him be happy with it...
