By Failure - Germany - Oschersleben
Today, my aunt, whom I live with, told me she is going to move out and demanded her half of the rent back, as she only spent two days a week there. When I told her that's not how rent works, she called my mom to tell her what a failure she had raised. Her own sons are unemployed drug addicts. FML

Works for my family just fine. My mom gives my grandma money to pay for certain things, my grandma gives my mom money to pay for certain things. My mom pretty much handles all the money.

My experiences have been bad. Lot's of family drama involving lent money, maxed credit cards, and bitterness. It depends on the situation of course, but don't lower your defense just because they're family. I treat all family transactions just like normal ones now after losing about 20,000 dollars due to family drama. Write the amount down, make contracts if it's a large amount. Notarize documents if they refer to large amounts of money.

#38 - I commend you for spreading the word about your own misfortunes, people need to learn that being related to somebody doesn't automatically mean they will treat you right. I wish you didn't have to learn the hard way, hopefully you recovered financially!

Exactly. If your aunt believes that she is entitled to everything she wants on the backs of her relatives, then she probably taught her kids the same values. Cue the drug addict sons.

It tends to be that way OP, those who have done bad see the bad in other and overlook the fault in themselves. I'm sure you're mother is sure enough of who you are not to listen to a word she said.
