So Dh has gotten a raise. His family members have all hit rough patches at different times in the year. So if we are at their house and they mention bill trouble he will have me call the company of one bill and pay it off for them. So far the bills are between a $200 water and an $800 gas bill. We don't expect to be paid back, it's just so they have a clean slate and aren't drowning.

Well here comes greedy Bil. We paid off his past due rent this time last year ($1200 the highest bill we've paid) but now he says that ComEd is going to shut off their electric if they don't come up with $647. Fine we will help, just bring me the bill next time you come over. He hasn't he "forgets" but asked Dh to just hand him cash.

No! You are obviously irresponsible with money. If you want us to help, we will only pay the company. Now he's pouting that I'm a controlling bitch that doesn't trust him. Oh well, just give me the bill.

Oh, and this Bil is the only person that has ever asked. Just does it for everyone else.

That's what I think

Quoting Maruchan: Sounds like he lying. He wants the money for something else.

It's sweet you help family but bil has gotten greedy. I'm glad the rest don't expect you to pay but rather are grateful when you help

He's a family oriented person. He's not going to sit back and watch. Everyone except this brother take are appreciative and pay him back in other ways.

Sounds like he's lying or inflating that number because he wants money for something else. I'd ask for the bill too. 

You guys are incredibly generous doing this for family though. I wish I had you guys as family.

Nice of you to do that for family.

Please pm me your address and I will send a couple of my bills to you to be paid.  Thanks ever so much.

And now it's time to stop being the family's free money source.
