Family, part 2

January 12th, 2009 at 06:48 pm

Well I had already made up my mine that I was not going to call my sister and she called today to tell me she was waiting on funds from her 401k before she could pay me back. First of all I told her this money was for my tuition, even though it isn't and if she wasn't going to be able to pay me back then don't borrow it. What bothers me the most, is what if I really needed the money for my tuition, it shows just how selfish she is. She knew it was a possibility ( a strong possibility)that she wouldn't be able to pay me back and yet she took the money. In a way I'm glad because this is the final straw, I'm going to tell her that the school dropped me and have her to think I am not taking a class...she won't ask me again and if she did it would be easier to say no
On a different today was a no spend day plus I received a survey check for $4

    It doesn't seem like you need to explain about the money at all. Just don't lend her a dime more. She's not trustworthy.

    I am glad you are putting your foot down with lending your sis money! And great job on the NSD.

    My advice is not to loan her money again. I would just tell her that she has a terrible track record with you and loaning her money just creates too much stress in your life.

    I believe in more of a straight forward approach.

    Oh yeah, great on the NSD.

    Great job on the NSD!!! I would, however, rethink your position on the lending of money. Rather than lower yourself to deceieve (you are much better than that), explain that you are a responsible young women who deserves to be treated with the same respect as you show others. Holding you hostage over money that was loaned without duress is not fair and will not be tolerated. Your goals and aspirations are far too important.

    I am a very firm beleiver in helping those who are less fortunate, however, NEVER when one does not help themsleves or at the very least, respect the sacrifices made for them.

    God bless and stay balanced in this stormy ride. You will pull through just fine!

    Amber: The fact that she is going to pay you back from her 401 funds doesn't sound great either. I'm with everyone else in saying no. You don't need the stress. What do you think is going to happen once you finish school and making more money? They are really not going to hold back on borrowing then because they will feel like you make good money.

    I agree with the others; just don't loan her anymore money.
