Explain to her that as a parent, it was her JOB or RESPONSIBILITY to buy you things, and that she can expect you to spend just as much and be just as loving with your child. However, you will not be making any effort to pay back your mother for meeting the requirements of a parent.
23-I happen to be a mother and would never tell my son to pay me back for anything. If he borrows money from me after he's an adult, I may consider asking for it back if I needed the money also. But paying for everything for your kid is part of your parental responsibilities. Whether you can get them all that they want or can only afford all that they need, you should be the one to pay for it and only you. (the parent)
Wait wait OP, your mother has also forgot a few more parts that you have to pay her back.. All the hours that added up to years that she took care of you, she could have gotten a job..so basically in her mind you owe her millions of dollars.. I feel strongly bad for you and suggest you to explain to her that you will pay her .000001% of what you 'owe' her to go to a therapist or some parenting classes
lol damn, that's gonna be expensive. hopefully she doesn't want it all at once.
The US Coinage Act of 1965, which has not yet been superseded by a new coinage act, made ALL US coins (which includes pennies) legal tender. Individual businesses may specify HOW they wish to accept payment- which is how McDonalds and other places can refuse a $100 bill- but that doesn't render the penny as non-legal tender. Further when a debt is agreed upon, such as a car loan, the business must provide you, up front, with their expected payment options- such as refusing to accept pennies, cash, personal checks, etc. Failure to do so could result in the debt being stricken if they refuse to accept legal tender.
