Just....wow. Lil called earlier to tell me that our son had called. He was going to ask to borrow the car (the one he used to have all the time) so he could go on a three and a half hour one way trip to pick up his stoner friend from, and I use this term VERY loosely, college. When he still lived with us and was working at the factory he had been talking about bringing this friend up here, getting him a job where our son worked, and they would get a place together. Now, this friend is ready to move up here but needs a ride. Whats so unreasonable about this you ask? Good question. Now take into consideration that our difficult child already told us that he wouldn't have February's rent and has asked several times for us to buy him food. So where do you think the $75 to $100 in gas money was going to come from? Amusingly, Lil cut him off before he could actually ask and told him it wasn't going to happen. He was apparently quite shocked at this. So shocked he didn't try to argue or get her to understand. Hopefully he's FINALLY figured out that his mom's sympathy meter is pegging at zero!
