that one neighbor who has two teenagers has finally crossed the line with hubby. unless the kids have to be rushed to the er, he doesn't want anything to do with them anymore. just this past week they have came over and gotten about four pounds of sugar (we both gave them some without knowing that eachother did it) some milk, and some cans of soup. we then find out that they went and got an xbox 360 and a wii along with all the guitar hero games (something hubby wants but we can't afford right now) and they also got internet and cable. but for some reason they don't have money for food! hubby told me i wasn't allowed to give them anymore food no matter what! we have our kids to worry about.

Where are the parents? Were the video games Christmas gifts? You have to do what you feel is best for your family. If you feel taken advantage of, then my all means, put a stop to your generosity. Next time they come over for something, give them a list of food pantries & churches in your area that help out those less fortunate. BTW- I can't imagine what they needed all that sugar for. Gallons of Kool Aid maybe?! :p

Yeah I'd stop giving them stuff. They are taking advantage of you! Why do you have so much sugar in your house at one time?! lol
