DH called from work to tell me that his ex wife just called him at work to tell him that the re-possessors were at her house to pick up SD#2's car. His ex demanded that HE doing something about it. Ummm, hello? What's he supposed to do about it? Two or three years ago when #2 just had to have a new car (the classic mustang he gave her for her 18th birthday wasn't good enough) DH gave her the remainder of her inheritence from her grandma; $28,000. The deal was that she was to bank the money and have her car payments automatically deducted from the account. This was to build up her credit, vs. just paying it all in cash for the car which wouldn't have done a thing for her credit score. The plan would have worked fine, except that instead of doing that #2 quit her job and lived off the money until it ran out. Only then did we find out what she had done. She hasn't held a job for more than 2 weeks at a time since then. This on top of both girls coming up here last night (the groceries we bought them must have run out) and SD#1 strongly hinting around about needing a $1000 so that she can take a CNA course, instead of looking for a job right away so she can make HER car payments. She's just recently left her husband. Back when he gave #2 the money, he got a call the very next day from #1 wanting the rest of her inheritence (also, $28,000) "to go back to school". Only instead of going back to school she and her husband spent the money on new furniture, a big screen TV and a down payment on a truck that they couldn't afford, that has since been re-possessed. And now his ex has the nerve to call and demand that HE do something about the mess his girls have made? Is there a smiley stronger than the rolling eyes one?
