It bugs the crap out of me. My Grandfather is very wealthy, but I have never and would never ASK for money from him. I have 3 sisters and they have all asked for money before, and he gives it to them. My youngest sister (18) asks for money EVERY month. She tells him it is for diapers and other baby items, but then she goes out for fast food every day. I know it is going to fast food and her bf because they recently moved in with me. Her and her bf also make more money then hubby and I do..
He has voiced that he has more respect for my hubby and I because even we are in a rough patch we don't look for hand outs.
My question is- If you knew you would be handed the money, would you ask for it, even though you knew he would loose respect for you??
Sorry this is kind of a vent along with a question..

I have never asked my mom and dad for money because I know they would not give it to me I think if you need it it would be one thing but like my brothers they just ask and they get whatever. I see that and leave it alone. I think like me you and your husband are ground pounders its better to work or go without then to reach for a hand out I respect that as well.

I've asked my dad for money in very IMPORTANT situations. I don't just ask for it for the hell of it. I go to him for I do know he has the money and can/will help me out if I really need him to. He's DAD. :)
In your case grandpa gives money anytime they ask. They have no reason to stop asking I guess. Grandpa needs to start saying NO if he doesn't want to give it.
