Life has been a real mess here lately. Between the economy being so bad and the effects it has on all aspects of life. I am laid off, unemployment running out, little to no work, and bills are piling up. Now thats not the complaint in my life. I have answers for finances. I buy and sell used furniture, I always keep an inventory so i can never be truly out of $$$. I use ebay and craigs list to sell high value items and antiques.
My complaint is that i have a roomate and alot of friends always trying to sponge off my wife and self. They spend all thier cash as soon as they get it. Then they want to hang around my house because they have no food or drinks there. They bring thier kids and don't take the hint to back off. I have to be down right rude. Not that anyone cares, but i have dealt with severe anger issues my whole life. I have found healthy ways to deal with it and not lash out at people but it isn't always easy. So if you have a trained tiger how much does it take for it to bite your throat out?
I hear about all the going out and drinking. The roomate's cat eats 4 cans of canned cat food on top of dry food, he's worried about feeding the birds. Well he's broke, so are we, and theres no real food in the house. His car is screwed up but he has to smoke 2-3 packs of smokes per day. 12 pack of soda. Well don't cry about money if t hats how you are chosing to spend it.
I'll keep you up dated.
Put the petty shit that adds up together and look at how much different you'd react to big issue if it weren't that way.
God I hate people that just sponge of you and don't take the hint that 'hey, I also need to find cash to support my family'. The worse thing is that you just end up feeling petty and mean if you tell them to stop eating my fkn food! Urgh! My flatmate used to do that, I would plan my meals for the week and she would just eat it. She knew it was wrong as she would only eat the stuff at the back of the fridge so I may not 'notice'! Yeah right! She also used to smoke inside! Urgh! I told her many times not to and in the end I just kicked her out!
These people are not friends, friends are courteous and want the best for you. If you look at it that way then would you allow a 'non-friend' to go through your stuff and eat themselves fat? Fk no! Can you just tell them when they turn up that you're busy? I know that you're not working but there must be an excuse to get them to go.
How annoying that they put you in this situation!
Hope your financial situation improves.
