This is probably heartless but....

I know this woman who has 3 young boys (under the age of 10) and is pregnant again. Her dh refuses to work. She is always complaining about how poor they are etc. I've gotten to the point where I just quit talking to her because she refuses to do anything to help herself (when she had the second baby we were talking about bc. She said she could not afford $10 a month for the pills. I said how are they going to pay for diapers?? She said "we can get help with that kind of stuff"

Well this weekend was our town festival. All day yesterday she had her boys up there and didn't bring any money for them to ride rides or eat. So they spent all day going with random families who felt sorry for them and bought them ride tickets and food.

That is ridiclous. I understand it's not fair to the boys. But she should be ashamed of herself! Why on earth would you go spend ALL day at a fair and not have money? She *knew* that other people would take her boys and pay for them.

More than once they asked me for money and I told them no. I brought $30, $20 for a ride bracelet for dd, and $10 to get a funnel cake and some drinks. They followed dd and I around for an hour pouting at every ride dd went on bc they couldn't ride. I finally told them they needed to go find their mom. The older one said "well mom doesn't have any money for rides" and I said "I don't either so you need to go now" and they finally left. Good grief!

Sad, she should have went to planned parenthood or something. Of if she is that poor why isn't she on state insurance? Doesn't that cover bc?

Poor kids. I hate parents that do stuff like that. I couldn't afford Bc pills at the time so I went and got the rod Bc put in instead.

I have no idea.... don't really care. I tried to be friends with her a long time ago and she just wore me out.

She actually had the nerve to tell me once that I had no idea how lucky I was bc the VA paid my tuition bc my dad is a disabled vet. She had a FULL RIDE scholarship and lost it because she kept getting pregnant and flunked out.

She was just making excuses. If they have money to her dh to smoke then they can afford $10 a month for bc.

That's sad.
I don't understand why people throw away college! This is a pet peeve of mine because it's something I feel is impossible for me!

Doubtful. She has put up with him for about 10 years so far. All she does is complain about him and their life but she refuses to do anything to make it better. I just get sick of dealing with her.

Unfortunately if others keep helping her out, feeling sorry for the kids it will never change.

Its NOT the kids fault... I see why ppl are willing to help but its ridiculous. That mom needs to have her tubes burned, tied, & stapled.
