My family

DH and I own our home, we have a lovely 1 bedroom apartment over our detached garage that we sometime rent out.  Recently a cousin of mine needed a place to live and asked if she could rent the apartment we agreed that she could but she also had to pay the $300 for rent, we cover utilities and water. The first and second month she pays, the 3rd month she doesn't and we ask her why and she says she can't afford it so since we are family we should help her out because family looks out for each other...we told her no because we can get a renter that will pay or just use the space this summer when DH parents come here from Seattle to visit.   

She moved and is now suing us for the $600 back. 

I don't think she will win, but I think she is stupid.

I just had to vent.
