Wouldn't it be better to sell them just before you leave? Even if you have to sell real cheap the extra $50 would feel better in your pocket than hers, no?

My mother used to steal from me when I was a kid (started working when I was 12). She had some ESP when booze or money was involved and she'd justify it much the same as yours but the expression was 'milk money'

Lastly, the title (ownership) does not have to be the same name as the registration. Insurance and registration names have to be the same thou (afaik). Kinda late now but at least you learned something.

We can all feel sorry for him, but this is just one biased side of the story.
You are painting a pretty sad picture of your life. I hope you can somehow turn it into something positive, because all those negative feelings aren't going to make things better anytime soon.

What are we not hearing?

Yeah, I know it seems like that, but it really isn't. Everyone I know who knows the situation first hand also agrees completely. Her friends became mine and totally distanced themselves from her.

The positive? The positive is that I'm LEAVING. There really is no positive to this woman, she drives people nuts. And then she complains that she has no friends. Even her own family has distanced themselves from her.

And no, Hans, thats not quite true about the work thing I tried working in this town and have applied at every place a small town like this could use someone, and I've gotten no response. Then I started applying to places farther away because I was determined, still nothing. People constantly complain about this area having no jobs, I'm not nuts. But you know what? I AM SO determined to get a job and get a good life going that I'm MOVING to florida where I have a better life waiting for me.

Yes I understand that shes not going to be around forever, and yes I love her to the end of the earth, believe me, it may not sound like that, but I do. She is ok otherwise, but we CONSTANTLY fight about STUPID crap, and its ALWAYS because shes not happy. All she does is complain, but does nothing to try and rectify it. She basically relies on me for everything, and me leaving is really going to be good for her.

I have no doubt in the world that she'll be a much better person towards people once I'm gone, maybe she'll get it that people don't want to be around her. Heck, even my two siblings can't handle her for that long. Last time they came up here, last December, they were here for 5 minutes, seriously, 5 minutes, after not being together for over a year, and the fighting started. The mood DROPPED because mom instantly started complaining and killed the mood altogether. This is not a one sided story. But yes, you WILL hear a completely different one from her...but it won't match anyone else'*. Guaranteed.

But! I'm not complaining, because I know its going to get better, all I'm doing is sharing some current events with my BC family. If I don't, how the heck are you guys supposed to know?

Thanks for the responses guys, it feels good to know I'm not nuts...at least not completely.

There are two sides to every story.

When you get settled in Florida, I don't want to hear any complaining how hot it is in June, or how big the bugs are, or how bright the sun is, or how little the women wear on the beach. or how the hurricane tore the roof off your apartment.

John.. Heed Stans advice. We aren't sure he ever had parents..but Hans also mentions some good stuff. I moved out right after high school and things were tight. It taught me a lot. Never asked for a loan etc and always got along.

Leave on the best terms, no matter how hard it seems at this point. And move on.. be grateful you aren't being asked to change smelly diapers.
