Yesterday difficult child brought her car up to the car repair shop to get a wheel alignment for free because we got it aligned over the summer and there is a six month guarantee and it is out of alignment again (she lives on an old brick street which does horrible things to your car). We told her to get her oil changed and we would pay for it and she also discovered a nail in her tire which they repaired. So husband uses his credit card and paid for the repairs. On difficult child's facebook yesterday is a post from her friend who apparently went with her. They met a 50-something woman who is homeless and unemployed getting her car fixed. They offered to pay for her repairs but she refused. They commented what a a strong willed, independant and happy woman she was even though she had nothing and how she inspired them. So here we were paying for difficult child's repairs and there she was offering to pay for someone elses. I don't know if I should be proud of her or angry. Knowing her she was probably trying to figure out how she could get us to pay for both of them.
