As someone who works in a financial institution, I am sad to say that I see parents taking money from their kids quite often (because their name is on the account). I hope you no longer allow yourself to loan money to your dad since you must take care of yourself as well. I hope your dad will realize he is being a selfish asshole and will pay you back in the near future. Best of luck OP.

With how douchy the dad sounds, I doubt he will let OP eat his food or live with him for free. I suggest you siphon gas out of his car every time you see him until it makes up for what he borrowed. He will never know he paid OP back.

A bag of raw carrots can be purchased in the UK for £1 or less. Eat enough of those and you'll feel more full than if you wasted money on Mcdonalds. Plus OP still has to eat for several days.

Being full is not important. It's the calories intake that matters. 2 pounds of carrots are just 400kcal. It's not even close to your minimum daily requirements. It's better to buy the cheapest and largest loaf of bread OP can find. A whole large loaf of bread can easily give you 1500-2000 kcal. Rice, pasta, patatoes are other good cheap high cal options. And be generous with oils and fats. Might not be healthy but survival is more important than a healthy diet.

I would like to point out that 3 days is not enough time to start worrying about caloric intake to the point of being picky about to eat. he isn't going to die unless he has some disease and that can't handle low food intake for 3 days. and I'm sure he could borrow some money or go eat at his dad's.

I don't think I'd be worried on "wasting" money on luxuries if I knew (or rather, thought) someone would pay me back on a loan. Besides, Cheez Whiz is $3.98. That's not much of a difference, maybe a box of nuggets at Burger King. I doubt that's overpriced, because cheese spreads are about $3-$4. I'd also like to point out Cheez Whiz isn't fake food, it's a topping for other foods, such as broccoli, as depicted on the jar.

@#60, OP couldn't reasonably think that his father would pay him back, since he stated that his father "still refuses" to repay him. That's quite different wording than it would be if the father was stringing him along. $4 can buy 3 cheeseburgers at McDonalds, with change left over. Or, it can buy a box of pasta and cheap sauce for several meals worth of food. Or two containers of eggs for several meals worth of healthy protein. But the point of my comments was that if OP will w

Don't assume someone's situation! That is so rude to make light of someone's misfortune. I'm sure if this individual had a few dollars for a burger they would much rather have that than a jar of cheese wheez

Take something of equal value that you can sell or pawn as collateral before you loan money. Best is to avoid loans if you can. But I've done the same. One repaid the other didn't and still owes a couple thousand for lawyer fees. I understand your pain. Family can suck sometimes.
