Anyone who's followed my dilemma w/ my middle son knows my husb & I have been very patient since he returned home at the end of Oct. We gave him time to get his act together, & also told him that we expected $100/mth rent beginning in Dec. He only works part time & is going to school. He paid $50 in Dec. & nothing since. I've been asking him for his rent weekly, & he keeps boo-hooing how he's broke & only has enough for gas & insurance. We are scrapping by too & aren't asking for much, esp. considering he doesn't even clean up after himself & eats like a pig. So, it's about 2 wks til his B-day & I was thinking about the timing of giving him written notice that he has 30 days to get out for failure to pay. I love him but just can't live with this stress, tension, etc. It's time for him to grow up. What do you think of the timing tho- is that too mean to be so close to his B-day?
