More inlaw money crap. I am just steaming the more I think about this. husband pulls me aside this morning and says his parents are about $2500 SHORT of the money they need to pay the movers to get them from Texas out here to their "new" house sister in law#3 bought them (because they were soooo bored and soooo lonely at the OTHER house she got them in TX). We just paid $250 for their flippin' plane tickets to go back to start packing so they wouldn't have to bring BOTH cars out (one was already here). Although I reminded husband that they'd asked for help to get home even BEFORE the whole house deal went down because when they "planned" (that is a word they apparently don't understand) their little trip to Vegas in June for this "free" slot tourny they failed to hold out enough cash to pay for gas/lodging on the way back (they have NO credit cards because they ruined their credit) and husband was already talking about giving them MORE money so they could get home. And then the house thing came up. He has the gall to ask ME how I would solve this if it were my mother. The fact that she would never EVER let herself get in this position is apparently lost on him. I told him I cannot possibly offer him a solution because I don't know all the options. Then he tries to get me to talk to his parents on the phone about this -- UH-UH, NO WAY, NO HOW. NOT MY PLACE, NOT MY JOB. And YES I have a say about this because it affects OUR FAMILY, and they come FIRST, well BEFORE his extended family!!! Then he has the nerve to suggest that it's okay for us to go into debt to help them! That since we have a little bit in savings (which I have to draw from each month to cover our expenses), it should be okay to use that. Hellooooo? What if he loses his job again? We would have NOTHING to fall back on!!! AAAAARRRRRGH! Ooooh I am just so, so, SO MAD.
