Just to keep it simple and to ask for advice.
My 20 year old son just spoke to my wife and asked for money, $4000….
Apparently he can't pay his (shared house) rent.
He lost his licence speeding and had his car impounded, then got caught driving and got more fines.
His work has cut his hours cause he didn't want to work nights anymore.
I, to be quite frank i'm not happy to just fork over my very hard earned money so he can learn "lessons" in life….
I go with out a lot in life to save my money but my wife just said to me "he is your son".
His Facebook lately is just full of pictures of clubbing and pubs.
Hi all, the out come….
Yes it was stated a gazillion times, don't lend the money but any way.
So I paid a fine for him and gave him a $2900 loan so $3370 he owes us.
He is supposed to be changing positions in his work which will be 5 days a week so he could easily pay us back.
Don't worry we put him through hell to get this money, we wanted ins and outs of everything.
If all else fails he could work for us for free lol as our best worker is leaving us soon.
Do I expect to see the money paid back? No not really but honestly I want only about half back as its his birthday soon but I'm not telling him that.
Thanks for the support or lack there of, now I've got to go and build some bridges…
