So, my mom is retired. My father passed away 1.5 years ago, so it's just her. I was hoping she would get to enjoy her retirement, but my younger brother seems bent on not allowing her to.
He is very irresponsible. He has 5 kids and a wife who is good for NOTHING. She won't learn how to drive because she is scared of it. My brother has to work, so it is up to my mom to take her everwhere she needs to go. They don't help the kids with schoolwork, so my mom does it. They won't pay their bills.
My mom was visiting me right after Christmas. My brother didn't pay his electric bill, which had amounted to $1000, and git the electricity cut off. So he just went and moved into my mom's house with the wife and all the kids.
The kids were destroying the house, so my mom promptly paid the whole bill to get their electricity restored and get them out of the house.
My mom is living off her government pension, which is not much. She has had to take out loans to help my brothers out in various situations. I feel like kicking my younger brother's butt!
Of course, when I express my opinion to my mom, she asks me to just let her be, because she cannot just let starve or live on the street or live in the dark. "For my peace of mine, just let me do it"
I know my mom has been trying to figure out how to cut it out, but every time she tries, a new tragedy strikes.
What would you do?
