Okay, I have a friend who went though a bad divorce and because of what happened during the end of their marriage her children were taken away by DCFS. Well, I have been trying to help her out as the best as I can by giving her rides to places. At one point I even help her find several places of employment.
At one point in time I let her stay in my home for a few months before I had to kick her out because of me moving to a smaller location and she kept on bringing these different guys in the home week after week.
Well, two years have past and she is still not on her feet. She got fired at many locations because of not showing up to work and amoung other things.
Recently she was living at a place with a guy and now he wants her out in two weeks. She doesn't have a place to work and the only money she has right now is what she got back from her tax return.
Now, she has this idea in her head that she is going to live with me and wants us to rent these homes that is wayyy out of my budget (she must think that I can afford a 1400 a month payment when I bring home 1800 a month before taxes). Plus since she is going though the DCFS case I don't want them in my home and may take my child because of her being there. I can't take that chance in doing that. Plus since she is so questionable about finding an keeping a job, I cannot pay her way.
Just about 30 mintues ago I had to firmly tell her no that this isn't going to work out because of her situtation. I feel bad for her and want to help the best way I can but living together I know ISN'T going to work out at all.
*edit* I told her many times that this isn't going to happen and it seems that it's not sinking in that it's not going to happen. I am not sure if there is a better way to tell her so that she does get it or just cut all ties to her together.
