Un-fit Mother! *UGH*

Ok, sorry, but I just have to vent about this...

We have these neighbors, and they are both in their 30's, living with her boyfriend's parents. Neither one of them have a job, she has 2 kids that live with their dad (that says alot right there!) and they are always mooching off of people, including us! Oh, and her boyfriend is an alcoholic, and both are trailor trash! She also used to be a stripper, "to support her children!" Well, they are constantly asking us for favors: $20, a ride to the store...they don't even have a car! Anyways...tonight she calls Travis asking if he could give her a ride to Pembroke, where she is supposed to be living, and she had to be their in a matter of 30 minutes or she will lose her kids! The nerve of her! She is a GROWN woman, we are NOT her taxi-cab, and that is HER responsibility! I don't know the whole story, but from what I know of her, she is an un-fit mother! People like that don't even deserve kids! It makes me sick! And Travis agreed to it, because he didn't wanna be mean! I swear, he needs to learn how to say NO! I know he is just trying to help, but you have to draw the line somewhere! To make matters worse, we are BROKE this week! *UGH* What do you think about this situation?

Yeah, I'm sorry, I should have been a little more specific! I try not to stero-type or judge people myself, but in my opinion, I don't think there is an excuse for being a stripper. She claims she did it "to support her kids"  but why can't she just get a NORMAL job, instead of degrading herself in front of complete strangers? I couldn't imagine showing my body, dancing for money, and then go home at night feeling good about myself! I am very against pornography & things of that nature, so it may just be me! Also, I live in a trailor, too, a mobile home (double wide)...so, lol! But anyways, I hope her kids grow up to be better than her!

Quoting ALiLBabyPHAT18:

eh, we are just different with different experiences.

Strippers don't bother me, like I said.  My job/volunteer work has caused me to know a few and once I got to know them the stereotype vanished.  Not to say there isn't trashy ones, but they are usually trashy people to begin with.  The others.  Not so much.  Reason why they do it.  Do you know how much money they make.  Everyone has heard the expression "I am just stripping to pay my way through college".  No joke she can and did.  Becca complained about the pay cut when she got a NORMAL job.  An LPN doesn't even make close to a stripper.  But she wanted to start a normal life for her and her son, I guess. 

Against porn, nooooo.  LOL.  You'd like my town.  Not one adult shop in the whole county. You heard of dry counties, we have a porn free county.  It is unnerving.  I live in a town that has zero adult shops but 60 churches listed with in 5 miles of my front door.  I guess all those years in Baltimore/DC and California jaded me to the evils of the flesh. 

To each is own. 

I do hope the children rise above the trash they are seeing.  Sad, she doesn't choose to show them a more "ideal" version of the world.  They don't need to know or be exposed to all the ugliness and trash at such a young age. 

p.s.  Nothing wrong with living in a trailor.  I lived in one growing up. We live in low income housing.  It isn't about the place but the people.  (Since 75% are either Marine or Navy it has worked out well).  We aren't bad people, Military just doesn't pay well.  LOL
