I just need a rant! I am so beyond knowing how to even talk to my sister these days! She is just acting like a complete moron! She and her dh struggle financially and are always in trouble, but it isn't always because of uncontrollable circumstances but their awful decisions and she won't listen to reason....like EVER!
Just LAST week she was crying to me about how she has not paid her electric bill or her cable bill since she moved into her apartment (mid-october after they were evicted from their last apt) so those both are about to be shut off. Then she got a 72hr eviction notice on her door for this newest place. They didn't have enough money for food etc. I am not in a great position to give her money right now and honestly don't feel like the money will help because she doesn't make smart decisions with her money. So she was able to get the money so she wouldn't get kicked out of her apartment again (but I don't think she got the other bills paid) by asking her bishop at church for help.
So what does she tell me today on messenger? Hey, we are probably getting a puppy today! WHAT THE HECK! Do you realize that puppies are a time AND money commitment? That they also need to be fed...like with dog food...and taken to the vet for shots/other ailments? And you cry every other month to me about how you cannot afford to feed your children or pay for their doctors bills? I don't care if the people are giving away the puppy, it is NOT a FREE thing! And its because she and her two kids have been wanting a puppy. I feel bad for the poor animal who is going to go without food and without vet care and without a home when they next get evicted. Oh, and when I mentioned how much animals can cost to feed her response was "they have food stamps for pet food and supplies" Oh, great, so go ahead and get a pet so that taxpayers can pay for it for you!
This is just on top of the other things she always tells me she is going to buy when her next paycheck or tax return comes back.
Ugh...why can't she just listen to a voice of reason? Sorry for the rant--had to just get this off my chest. She is on my facebook wall so I couldn't post a rant there.....
