Why is someone else’s “emergency” suddenly mine?
How does someone’s repeated poor choices, bad decisions, and terrible money management become my problem?
Why am I forced to suffer the consequences of others’ stupidity?
These questions, unfortunately, will never be answered. I am just unlucky enough to have to ask them on a frequently repeated basis.
I had to buy a used car this weekend so that I could loan it to a family member for a short period of time. Because they have no transportation and desperately need to keep their job, which is needed to keep other disastrous things from happening…which might still happen anyway.
It’s something I really didn’t have much of a choice in because I am damned if I do, and damned if I don’t.
