Well, 10 days into the new bout of stupidity..... the bank phoned looking for her, she's overdrawn. I phoned her to tell her, she is overdrawn "a bit" and the bank had tracked her down. so I did the motherly thing AGAIN and explained what happens with nsf cheques, why you can't do that, use cash only, etc. etc. Then she got in a rant because she wanted me to cover it from money we have in a joint account to be used for school and getting her own place, along with $300 that was to be used to learn to budget weekly for August, which now has to stretch to Sept. because she quit her job. Anyway when I told her I would not cover it because of the above reasons she let it slip and I found out she is $270 overdrawn. In ten days. That's not including the $125 I gave her just before she left (for her weekly budget because I didn't know she was leaving) and the $60 for the next week - we had to cut the amount in half so it would last for 2 months now. While at home she had a nice job in a store at a resort, full time until Sept 4, but she could not stand to live here one more minute. She won't work in restaurants that are hiring because she HATES that and won't do it. She does, thankfully, have a part time job in a clothing store, but won't get paid for a while. I hung up on her when she was yelling at me "what the hell are you doing". Anyway, on the upside, my hard greiving is over, and I have the room cleaned and fixed up for company.
