Ok, Here is my complaint!
My mom has to be moved out of her appartment by the end of May! She is barely looking and has just turned in like 4 applications to places... And she only did that cause I drove her around to do that. Mind you I live more than 45 minutes drive to even get to her house.. then to drive her around for 2ish hours which is what she wants me to do 2+ times a week till she finds a place. She acts like if she drives up and down the streets she will see a place for rent..
Well While that might be.. The quicker and cheaper method which I have suggested to her is to call local reality's and see if any of them have anything to rent. She needs a 1 bedroom and is on Section 8. So it has to be a nice place that meets all the section 8 codes. But it also has to be within her budget. Which she won't call section 8 to find out what that budget # is! I have taken her and so have my brothers and sisters taken her local newspapers to call places from there.. I also asked her to call her current landlord who IS the largest landlord in the tri-county area and ask them if they have anyplace that will be ok for section 8.. Which is who is now paying for her current rent.. kwim?!
Well She is acting so forgetful and not calling anyone.. etc.
But it costs me 20+ dollars for each of the trips to her house, then around town and then to get me back home.. I am also on a fixed income as I am disabled. I don't have the money..
But I keep getting these damn guilt trips she loves to give about how she will be homeless etc..
Why in the heck is it my responsibility to "Drive Miss Lazy" who won't even call and schedule appointments to see a place.. I told her if she scheduled a day of 4-6 places to go see.. I would happily take her.. That atleast is productive.. kwim?
I am going anon cause I don't want all the haters on me for being on public assistance programs etc!
