Do you know anyone that will always be broke no matter how much money they have?

I know people that can't afford groceries... then will get their tax return, go on a really expensive vacation, and then be back to not being able to buy food. I always want to scream stop complaining about money if you're not going to be responsible with it!!

  • Yep, my inlaws. I dont even think they get refunds but she makes really good money and will get 3-4 months behind on rent and her rents only $375 a month. She also wont have money for gas, drinks or anything. I have no idea what the hell they spend their money on.

  • a friend of mine who I love dearly, she's trying to pay off her creit card but then she goes out and buys expensive things she really dosn't need. I don't know what to tell her anymore.

  • Same here... One should be able to manage one's daily expenses & then can think of other luxuries....

  • My little sister. She did okay on her own. All of her bills were paid at least. Then she got married two years ago and now she can't even pay her bills. Well she probably could, but she keeps spending money they don't have. She is crying because she is so broke, then not even 10 minutes later bragging about her new Kindle and her husband's new tattoo.

    I am done listening to that drama.

  • Yep a couple of people I know do that consistently. I'm rarely in a position to loan them money and honestly I doubt if I would.

  • Yes, my husband has family like this. They can't afford their own groceries or keep their bills paid, but they sure can smoke and drink and party like there's no tomorrow.

  • I know several people like that. We don't have much money at the moment, but that's because DH is still in school.
