ugh! some people... adult content

Do you know people who complain about things, then turn around and do something to make it worse?

My cousin was complaining about money the other day to me. I listened. She is family I will lend an ear for her. I can relate too, Im not rich. But then she sent me a picture text of the new Coach purse she just HAD to buy while driving past the Coach store on her way home yesterday.


It's not my business if she wants to get more into debt, but sometimes it bugs me how ignorant people can be!


Do you have any similar stories?

  • Yes...my sister is always complaining about not having money, but then she goes and buys totally unnecessary things...like the other day she was showing me this light-up toilet seat she wants to buy online.

  • OH Yes! I have a friend like that. In one breath she's crying how they are several months behind on rent and dont know how they are going to avoid being evicted and then in the next breath she has to get off the phone because they just pulled up to Ci-Ci's restaraunt for dinner and after dinner they are stopping at Footlocker to buy the kids shoes.Makes no sense to me.
