December of last year, my son needed to pay his rent,so I gave him $140 and then I ended up broke, the whole month of December, so the phone rings and it's my son, he told me he is waiting, on his check and it would come at 1:00 I told him it was only 12:00 he has to wait, I told him I could not give him any money, what my son wants me to do, is give him money from my social security check, I am not doing that, I did that last month, he has a roommate he took in, to get rent from her, so he need to do that, stop coming to me every time, your money falls short I am not going to, be there for you like that, I told to stay out of my son's business, and I am doing that, and now he is coming to me and I am turning him away.

My mother in law (well both my parent in laws, but FIL passed away a few years ago) has gone through this for YEARS with their oldest daughter and loser husband. Now 2 of the grown children (MIL's grandchildren) are living/mooching off of her - meanwhile their parents (now in their mid 50s) are STILL calling MIL for money. It's ridiculous. MIL has had a hard time saying no all these years, but now that she is on a very fixed income, she just cannot do it . . . but it has taken this long to finally put her foot down (but we know she still has a hard time saying NO).
