  • Dont know and horrible to say....BUT my mom acts as though I am made of money. She assumes that I have tons of it, just because I live a good life. The thing is my husband and I work very hard for what we have and just like every other person in AMERICA we have bills. It is just hard when family comes to you because they are family, its hard to say NO.

  • Yeah, I know how the 'being a hairstylist and everyone needs you' goes. it's when people take advantage of you and your abilities. BUGS ME TO DEATH! Certain people should be paying no matter what---the ones who do NOTHING for you in return!

  • Not anymore because I don't talk to most of my family anymore. They all tried to take advantage of me. They walked all over me too.

  • Oh no...I stopped that a long, long.....looooong time ago. I woke up one day and said BS, I'm not letting people walk all over me anymore and I told them no. I didn't answer mail, I screened calls. When they finally started asking WHY??? Where are you??? I told them straight up. Some disappeared and are still unseen. Others ,well I guess they got a clue.
