As long as the higher ups dont close it I doubt this thread would ever close it.

I am just so glad I've been down for this whole week. I am going to treat myself to a decent dinner tonight, ordering italian.

btw, i did catch that!

car dealer being on the other side of the law, i know that from experience. the last new car i bought, i got TAKEN BAD. should be a law against what happened with me and that car.LOL

Right now my account is a neg balance cause this week was a killer esspecially when Mike was sick. So I just went into my overdraft account to cover my expenses. I hate overdraft even though it helps me cause sometimes I think the bank holds charges and then when they see the account going down they start applying the charges to the account.

ROFL I had $5 in an account and they allowed AH to make 5 separate $60 withdrawls, of course charging $35 for each and now plus interest. COurse that was long ago, but cmon even a bank has to know someone going to different gas station ATMs at 2 am for $60 30 minutes apart, is not right. They even charge $35 for their non bank $2 fees

This thread must NEVER end. It keeps us sane. To many of us wouldnt post otherwise.

Teke, Im not sure if doing this will not cause more drama, that scares me. She was doing it for BIL mainly cause its the third time each 2 weeks apart he's asked someone about detox. They just refuse to take him he's been so many times before. Last time they gave him $2 and a bus schedule. Today there were no beds when they called, and of course he didnt want to wait he wondered off. AH will convince him he doesnt need it and life will go on how it has been. So we are offering a way out...
Atleast we've all stopped enabling SIL wouldnt even give a roll of toilet paper when he asked. How sad?

My poor dump of a house. Wanna here something funny? We did a probono(free) case for boss AA buddy who had a reckless driving leaving scene of accident ticket. Got him off on a small complication. Boss told the guy it was free but there were secretarial charges and if they wanted to offer anything to me it would be nice. Wife said give her my number, and anything she needs, house cleaning or yard work we'll get some people there. Little did they know, they are going to clean my house after we get the drunk crackheads out.

You win, except I dont get paid again until the 31st.

Just kidding bout the winning part. We all do what we gotta do, right. Even if it is barrowing money from the bank, which BTW is cheaper than pawn charges or high interest credit cards

Speaking of overdrafts. My as kept withdrawing till it got to a -$800. I called them and said how can you let someone withdraw that much money with no money in their account without setting off alarms? They said the machine doesn't know. Well, as it turns out, why would they care, they just took the $800 out of my account. Turned out to be a snowball effect. Then I didn't have enough money for all the bills I had just paid.

Ill Give You And Update About As, Weve Still Left Him In Jail, I Got A Letter, His Mom Got A Letter, And We Had Three Letters For 15yr Old Agf In With Ours That He Expected Us To Deliver, Lol. Anyway Theres A Lot Of Im Sorry And I Feel Bad About Not Being Part Of The Family And You Were Only My Dad For 18 Years When You Had To, And Now Im Booted Out , Quack, Quack, Still Not One Word About A Plan For Recovery. So I Wrote Back And Just Reiterated That We Loved Him, We Would Pay For His 1st Month At A Halfway, And That All These Consequences Were The Result Of His Choices Not Ours. I Also Wrote That He Was Not Welcome At Home If They Do Let Him Out. I Wrote He Can Blame Us But We Don't Believe Him, Hes Had A Lot More Opportunities Than Most Kids. I Just Don't Know What Else We Can Do, If We Truly Want To Help Him.

Anvil, I truly believe BIL only wanted help hoping to move back in with his sister or mom, and they told him flat out that wasnt gonna happen this time. He always goes to detox when he's homeless and they always have taken him in. For his sake Im glad they will not this time. Actually AH always said they were killing him when they did, so I cant imagine where his pride is feeling now. But not my problem.

I got thinking about it and does he really think Im going to leave him to die in my home? Come on, not gonna happen. When he was on probation and running from warrants I always had him picked up eventually, when it was obvious he wasnt gonna handle it himself and he was wrapped in the same cycle...although never this bad
