You know, some people absolutely amaze me, and I don't even know why I'm surprised by this specific persons actions. Most of you who know me know that I do not get along with part of my hubby's family, most notable is two of his sisters. One of them is nothing but a user. She barely talks to my hubby most of the time, until she wants something.
Within a week of us buying our house, she asked my husband for $500 for a boat that she not only didn't need, she didn't have a place to store it (it is currently at our house despite my best efforts to prevent that from happening). Within two months of us buying our truck, she asked my hubby to make her truck payment because she bought something she couldn't afford. It's always something with her. She needs my hubby to fix her vehicles and of course cover the cost of any parts needed. She needs my hubby to put a shelf up for her that her husband told her no to. She needs my hubby to loan her money to pay her electricity bill. These are just a few examples, but trust when I say this is an ongoing thing and every week she barely talks to him and then she wants something. If he doesn't drop everything she gets pissed and uses her kids against him. He went nearly 3 months or more without being able to either see or talk to his nieces and nephews because he didn't run over there the second she told him to.
She is honestly at the root of probably 75% of mine and my husbands fights. We've gone 3 days without speaking because of the crap she pulls.
It really pisses me off, but it's next to impossible to make my husband see that all she is doing is using him. I understand about family, but there seriously has to be somewhere to draw the line. I mean, I can see asking for help for IMPORTANT stuff. BUT, here's what gets me. Today, on facebook, she posts the following statuses:
It just pisses me off that grown ass able-bodied people have the means to take care of themselves seem to USE people who are barely scraping by themselves.
Want money??? ~~~ GET A JOB!!! Makes perfect sense! Soo many people should read this!!
It makes me want to reply so bad with something like: Well, you're the queen of using people, so you certainly know what you're talking about.
Grrrrrrr.... Such a hypocrite....
