YDI for lending money to someone who is clearly unable to pay you back :/
Hey, my mom has done so much for me and I will love her forever but I respect her enough to think that she'd be respectful enough to find a way to pay back her son. And maybe op really needs the money too. You can't just be expected to give everything to your mom.
i'm sorry 37 but respect is earned. i hate people who think parents somehow did their childrensome kind of favor by raising them and paying for those first 18 years(anything after that i'll admit is a favor) they made a fucking concious decision to have a child with everything that entails. that includes the costs of raising a child. what you get in return for all that bullshit is haveing a child. now earning the respect of said child is another matter. if you lend money and don't pay them back then i'm sorry you don't derserve shit.
I dunno, depends on how badly I needed that $50 back. If I didn't really need it, no sweat, keep it. But if that $50 stood between me and getting my car impounded or some other financial emergency, I'd be calling her like Sallie Mae student loans to get it back. Especially if I had a decent reason to believe that she had the money and was getting ready to spend it on some BS like party liquor. (Shows you how messed up my family's priorities are....)
#98. You cant say that. I know a person who has tried to find a job everyday for the past 3 or so years but still has had no luck. So please take your head from under a rock and actually start using that thing inside of it, assuming you have one of those things of course.
Sucks, and as already said, you knew she didn't have a job. But, it's your Mom. Yeah, it sucks. But it's Mom! IMO
