I had an aunt like that too. There were a lot of problems when she was young, then she moved to Texas with her husband and 4 kids and there wasn't much contact for years. Then when she was in her 50's her husband walked out on her and her 4 grown kids washed their hands of her. They bought her a ticket and sent her to my grandmother in NJ.

Over the next 10-12 years she sucked every nickel she could out of my grandmother...who didn't have very many nickels to begin with. My grandmother had to move into a 2 bedroom apartment and my aunt, who had a job, was paying her $50 a week room & board. The $200 a month didn't even cover the difference for the larger apartment let alone her food and household supplies. Then my aunt had the nerve to complain that my grandmother wouldn't pay for HBO, buy her junk food etc. etc. She would buy nana gifts like gold earrings and inform my mother and I (in front of nana) that "when she goes, I get these back". I had a huge knock down drag out fight with her one day about how she should be sharing the expenses of the apartment...fell on deaf ears. What goes around comes around...when nana died, the rest of us broke all contact with her. Her one friend died about a year later and she spent the next 15 years a very lonely old lady.



Holly, Misty & their friend, Jake, the dog.
Onyx, Callie May, Maggie & Kobi forever in my heart.
Yes, I know I need a new signature pic...someday...

I hope by complain that you don't have to stay on topic with everyone else...

Complaints for the day... I spent $50 ($30 for warmer, $10 in bars, $10 in shipping and tax) on Scentsy products and got my first warmer in the mail. Their quality department must be a joke since I swear my knockoff was better quality. I'm pretty sure my $15 knockoff didn't have the pad on the bottom so crooked that the adhesive is visible when you set it down on the table. Yeah...I feel conned and should have replaced my knockoff with another knockoff. In case anyone is wondering, my knockoff fell on the concrete floor when I was moving so it kind of shattered.

Walmart is going to have their version for $10 on Black Friday with 4 bars. Is it too late to return it?

Just cancelled my JC Penny card. I just got a notice they are increasing their APR to 26.99%.
That's nuts! I'm the type who pays off balances monthly, but if
I missed a payment I'm not willing to pay that...in this economy where you get less than 1% on savings, 26.99 is just immoral.

I was offered a free 7 day stay in Las Vegas for the week after thanksgiving. The room and view are fantastic with a private Jacuzzi tub right in the room.

I already took vacation days for that week and then my wife’s doctor scheduled an appointment right in the middle of the week and she can’t reschedule.

By the time I return it I return it I might as well keep it. Scentsy isn't available in stores and is a MLM company. I'd have to ship it back more than likely. I ended up ripping off the pad and reapplying it. So far it hasn't fallen off.

I might get a knockoff for my office at that deal. The office has a funk to it.

Angry I'm so mad right now

My neighbour stole my package
I ain't working right now and hardly get much money and I bought a DVD set which cost 65 and the delivery guy gave my package to my neighbour because I wasn't available and my neighbour is refusing to give me my package

I told the police about it since it's practically stealing and they won't do nothing, those jerks!

I've literally lost 65, ughhhh!!!!!!

I'm gonna learn cat communication, gather a group of stray cats and throw a box of catnip at him

sorry that happened....tell the delivery company and shipper you didn't receive the package and ask for your money back. Worth a shot anyway. What kind of neighbor is that? Its not practically stealing, it IS stealing.

Delivery company should reimburse. They released the package without your permission to another person.

Depending on where you ordered from, the shipper may re-ship for free even though it isn't their fault. Amazon has done this for me before.

First course of action should be talking to some sort of manager for the shipping company.
