More of the same

My mother called this morning after they left. I'd hoped all could be polite, but it did escalate a bit. My sister claims she's just a different style of mother and feels that our mother is a control freak. My mother'd tried to give her $50 for gas money per their previous agreement, but my sister left it in the bathroom. She also turned down the money coming from our grandmother, which would have been a few car payments.

I cannot fathom my sister growing a backbone and turning down money. She's always broke and letting people pay her way - this after years of her with the big house, new cars, fancy big adult toys (as funny as that sounds - boats, four wheelers, etc), and great semi-annual vacations which led to bankruptcy and divorce. I have no sympathy for her.

As it stands, she's seriously dug her grave. My mother says she's writing her out of the will, which isn't significant, but it is healthy enough. As mad as my mother has ever gotten, I've never heard talk like that before. I tried to talk her out of it, although I know that's not in my son's best interest. As it would be, though, it sure would uncomplicate things at that time with my money-grubbing sister.

Wow. Just wow.

How sad for your mom.
that has to be heartbreaking for her.
Glad she has you to lean on now.

Gee, your sister sounds like my brother - only he would have taken that money and asked for more.

Mom has threatened writing him out of the will, but I know she never would. The guilt alone would kill her.

I forgot to say the part wheren my niece didn't hug my mother once in over a week. My niece's friend did at the beginning and end at least.

Cold people.
