I'm rolling in dough

My flaky sister-let's call her Biscuit-leads a very unstable life. She has two children she drags through her messes. She is being kicked out of her apartment now due to no payments for several months. We invited her to stay with us for a while so she can get on her feet. She would have to make a long trip to do it, but she recently got a $15,000 settlement for being hit by a driver while she was on her bike. She could easily move up here, buy a house, a car, and be close to supportive family. She won't. Fine. Her decision.

So I told her let me know if she needs any help searching for apartments or if there was anything else I could do to help.

She asked me to send her some of my daughter's old clothes for her daughter. First of all, I have two other daughters who wear her hand me downs. Second of all, they weren't born in the same season so the clothes would be off in seasonal value. Third of all what the hell is she doing with her $15,000 if she's not taking care of the necessities for her kids?!

I just needed to vent.

Thanks for listening.

Sounds like her 15K is already gone. She wouldn't be the first one to blow through a windfall.

I cut out the financially irresponsible beggar in my family years ago. Best thing I ever did for my nerves and sanity!

I agree. The only thing I know for sure she's bought so far is a new phone. Which is so much more important than clothing for her children.

No rent payments? Needs kids clothes? Yeah, there is no 15K anymore.

Where we live there'sa  house for sale for $6,000. It's not perfect. It needs some work. But she could buy it outright. the car would be an older one, but you can easily buy one here that will do for $2,000.00. Less if you go for a junker. And let me tell you, both of those would be leaps and bounds from where she is now.

It'd be a better use of her money. Totally possible in our area. Cheap, cheap, cheap and tons of programs to help those in need. It'd be an ideal place for her.

That's my thinking too.
