My DH's cousin lives in NC and we live in SC. We went to visit his family and stayed with her at her place. My husband owed her around $500 for some tickets he racked up a while back that she helped him out with. So, she's always bragging about how much her husband makes and how well off they are but she wouldn't leave him along about the money, which I understand. She was telling him how she really needed the money because they were broke and she made him feel bad for her. So once she gets her money, she just goes and blows ALL of it right in front of us. She even ordered some FANGS offline (she's in her mid thirties!). Now thats fine, it's her own money and I don't care what she does with it no matter how stupid. But lately, she's called my husband and she's giving him the same sob story about how she has no money. Yet, I know she has more money than we do, she just knows she can make my husband feel sorry for her and get what she wants. Well, shortly after the call about how broke she is she posts pics on FB of her going to a concert and getting her nails done and lots of other non-necessity things. I just think she is trying to use us when my husband doesn't make the money her's does and we have a child and one on the way and need the little bit of money that we do have. It really pisses me off when she calls and tries to bum money from us. Am I wrong for this? How do I make my husband see what she's doing? How do I handle this without getting very rude with her?
