Selfish

By Anon - 10/10/2011 15:24 - Canada

Today, my mom yelled at me because I refused to lend her money. The reason I won't lend her money? The last time I did, she and my dad went out and bought a Macbook and a new car instead of paying bills. Apparently, I'm being 'selfish' by keeping my own money and putting it towards university. FML

You deserve it; by it I mean the money.

Looks like SHE needs to grow up.

I see what you did there. Making effective use of the edit button I see.

more like triple. nobody says Fail anymore, and they never should have.

My previous comment wasn't meant to be funny, so how exactly do I fail? :/

A lot of people still use the words 'fail' actually.

I can give you some money. But not for free ;)

I'm curious. What did her comment say before?

69 - probably "first" or something

28 you failed because you put " first :D" fail number one. Also you were the second comment fail number two!

Looks like SHE needs to grow up.

She shouldn't have to pay for anything for her parents while she's in school!

3-But then they wouldn't learn their lesson.

The hell? This meant to be a reply to the comment below.

^you are so stupid.

2 #3s? The fuck?

Then they would be able to blow their own money on cool things instead of finishing off the debt that OP doesn't pay for. Idiots will find a way to make dumb moves one way or another.

Then OP's parents would probably spend their own money on more cool stuff instead of finishing off the debt. Idiots will find ways to make dumb decisions even when the right decision is plopped in front of them.

Did any one else read this in a horatio Caine voice? YYYYEEEEAAAAAAHHHH!!!!

Why the hell would you give her enough money for a MacBook and a car? Bills arn't that much.

Just offer to pay any debts instead. It's letting them borrow money without them buying cool things with it.

Sod that, their debts their problem! OP tried to help them once!

You deserve it; by it I mean the money.

Your picture is awesome

Thanks. That is a conversation I had with a stranger on omegle.

Tell her that you will give it to her once you finish school and make 6 figures!

Great idea! In fact, you really should avoid lending them money at all until you have enough to just gift it to them.

you have enough money to buy a MacBook and a new car? seems like you could spare some.

Do you realize how much college is...

Just because someone has a lot of money, doesn't mean any one else is entitled to it. Besides, college costs thousands upon thousands of dollars.

wow college is more important and you're not doing your parents a favor by letting them spend money on MacBooks and new cars when they have bills to pay

Yeah, college is expensive. Her parents are going to need to win a few big hands at poker in Vegas to see her through.

Wow are you serious? Do you pay your own bills? Do you not know how much college is? Even if you get money from school, you need to pay 40+ thousand back. Money to spare? Thats not op's money unless its from a job.

Ha all of you people that pay for school. Should've studied more, I'm enjoying my full ride :)

Well if you give someone money for bills and theres alot of debts that need to be paid then thats prolly why they gave their mom so much last time. Obviously your mother is irresponsible...so if you think what she wants the money for is important, then pay it for her so you can make sure it goes to what she says its going to. Btw, there is no problem with helping outta your parents when they need it.

Give her a dollar to really piss her off..

State it a few dollars in pennies

That really sucks that your more mature than your parents. My mother never carries cash on her so I lend her money, but I always get paid back. Take the macbook and car and tell her you'll give them back when you get your money back.

OP, how the hell did you lend your parents enough money to buy a car and a Macbook? Anyway, you're doing the right thing. Keep saving up, and ask for the other money back.

But our economy needs stupid people to keep spending money! That's why we should keep giving our money to idiots like Obama wants. This is the REAL economic stimulus plan! Oh I love being manipulated.

thats how you get kicked out without getting your money back

38- OP is in Canada. Barack Obama has no say so of their economy nor does their money or "stupid people spending money" in Canada effect us in America. :)

If they buy American made products it helps our economy

Yeah but you would think you have plenty of stupid without Canadian help...

Sadly if America sinks, Canada will be dragged under because of the leash America has us on...

Sooo instead of wanting you to get a good education so u can make moreee money She takes advantage of the money you have now for the silliest reasons when youd have to pay more than if you were to pay bills

I bet they won't even give you a cut if they gambled and won major jackpot in Vegas using your money you lent them.

Good reference!!!
