Tightwad or not?

First some background:
So BIL lives with his parents (my inlaws) he took his sweet time to graduate college while still living at home. He pays no bills and has been at his new job for over a year now. He makes over 90k and again he pays no bills and my MIL still pays his car insurance and his cellphone bill. So my daughter had her birthday party and he came ate at my house ate at the party and ate dinner at my house and had breakfast here the next day and didn't give his niece jack for her birthday! That cheap bastard!!!!!!! Nothing! I swear he is so effen cheap! He is always bitching about how expensive stuff is at the store! Hello?! He doesn't pay for anything no bills nada! We are surviving one one income with 2 kids and you come over to mooch and eat our food! Seriously! Thanks for listening, I feel better now...

  • My sister did the same exact thing to us. Granted she works & pays her own bills, but so do my husband and I. Yes, we invited her. BUT we did not invited her to come over, eat all our food, take a nap on my couch DURING the party, & not bring her niece a gift. I wouldn't show up at a party for my grandma without a gift much less a CHILD'S birthday party. Some people are rude as hell.

  • OP HERE~~
    No we didn't. He doesn't have kids and it was a children's party so I didn't see the point.We only invited people with kids and the grandparents. He came on his own with his parents.

  • OP HERE~
    What does he do with his money?

    Puts it in the bank. Which is great, but he needs to pay his own way. He never pays for his food when we eat out. UGHHHH!!

  • Next time he whines about what things cost, ask him..."When is the last time you actually paid for anything yourself?" Seems rude but maybe he will get the point of how blessed he is to make $ and have mommy paying the bills.
