My mom needs her van worked on. My husband works on cars all day. She called me and ask me to call him and see if he would come out this evening and work on the van. now I know it is not far but she lives about 30 miles away than he has to go get the part and come back and put it on. He works til 5 will not get home til 5:30 ^ 6. I don't know what to do he is tired when he comes in and she already owes the shop he works at about 5000 dollars for stuff that they have done for her before. I want to help my mama but I dont want to make my husband mad by asking. It will be late when we get home that will make every one mad. My kids go to bed by 8 and what he has to do we will not be back by than. I just do not know...

Apr. 11, 2011 at 5:20 PM Id say a compromise...tell mom he can work on the van but on the weekend. Course that only is doable is hubby is willing to do it. Ultimately its up to him, and realize she's asking because she knows how much she owes so she's trying for the free deal. Its never fun being stuck in the middle, good luck.

That is right i=she is ALWAYS looking for a hand out. I would say he would do it this weekend but than she gets mad because my brother cant drive to work. Will to start with he doesnt even have a dl so he doesnt need to be driving, and he can find away to work. I just hate not helping but I know how she is. If she was not my mom I dont think I would even talk to her. I know that sounds mean but that is just how it is.
