My family recently completed a two week vacation in the west. From Rushmore to the canyon.
A beautiful trip everyone needs to do at least once in their lives.
This trip had a stop in utah to see my brother and his wife. She's an animal lover with no kids.
She literally has 23 animals in her home, mostly cats. She is a full time shelter volunteer and fosters.
All she did was bitch about how much work and money the animals take.... ugh.
I would shoot myself in the head if I heard another cat adoption story.
When my wife got back to work yesterday a coworker told about her relationship issues of the past two weeks. Apparently she says she likes bad boys. This woman is 30 years old.
My wife asks how old these boys have to be before they are just bad men. Blank stare.....
This woman still doesn't get it.
I picked up the family Guinea pig from my brother in law on Saturday and his constantly unemployed live in girlfriend "46" was complaining she can't find a job worthy of her abilities. Not her words but it is what she implied. She has a bachelor's degree in some business thing, on line degree of course, and wants to work in her field.
She has tattoos on both hands and a huge one across her chest and wonders why she can't get a good office job. Her work history sucks too so that doesn't help. I lost count of how many jobs she quit because every man wants to sleep with her..
That's when she showed off her personalized license plate on her car.
She had money for that.
I've only been home for a few days and I'm just plain tired of listening to other peoples #ty problems that they bring apon themselves.
The only way I can comprehend these behaviors is that some people are not happy unless they are miserable.

I get you. Sister and bro-in-law are on the road. They constantly have money problems. They also have 3 kids. Sister can't seem to hold down a job. Bro-in-law has one but is limited by what is likely dyslexia (not his fault). Bro-in-law's family are the def of white trash and while he is doing his best ... that mentality has sort of sunk in.
So far, they've totaled two vehicles. Can't pay any of that off. Are dependent on others for transportation. They are into my parents for money for the kids. My parents have told them they keeping a ledger against inheritence, so this will be a grand fight for me.
They could get a car fixed. Folks gave them the money for the parts ... but that somehow never gets done.
Sometimes I don't understand how two people with the same upbringing can turn out so radically different.
