Today's OPP is from Erin:

Yi Slacker & Steve,
I got off work early one day last week and got the mail. It’s important to note that my husband gets off before I do, so he gets the mail every other day. Anyway, I was going through the mail and found a letter about a loan my husband had signed for a new car. We don’t have a new car. I asked him about it when I got home and he brushed it off like it was nothing. He said he co-signed on a loan for a car with his ex-wife! His son lives with his ex, so he said he did it so she would would have reliable transportation to get their son around. $22,000 dollars is a lot of money and I think he should have talked to me about it before signing the loan. What do I do? If she misses a payment, there is no way we can cover it right now and it could be her using the loan as a way to get back at us and ruin our credit. She’s always jealous of my relationship with my husband. Help guys!

Would you be upset? Is there anything Erin can do?
