You've gone above and beyond, you can be proud of how you helped a friend out!

Several years ago we were asked to temporarily house my sister-in-law, prior to a divorce. We spelled out all of the rules, on paper; including 1st two months free and clear except for any long distance charges, 3rd & 4th month - 1/3 mortgage and util's., 5th month and beyond - 1/2 mortgage and util's.

She moved out after 2 months!

Then my sister asked to move in, again prior to a divorce, we gave her the same contract to sign with one addition, no babysitting services, she had 2 young sons at the time. She passed on our offer and moved in with my mother!!

We were and are willing to help family and friends, just not enable them to become free-loaders at our expense!

He get money here and there but he mainly borrows from me. But that's over he is now packing his things and has already got a bus ticket tomorrow to go back to his parents. He got the cash for the bus ticket from his mom i believe

I'm going around feeling like an a hole but haven't I helped him enough?
What kind of friend calls you an ass hole and rants at you? You've done more than enough, like everyone else has said. He's no friend, he's a mooch!! Kick him to the curb. He belongs in the gutter!!!

Too political?

Fair= something that comes to town once a year. Has cotton candy and a merry go round, and you step in monkey poo. And life ain't fair.

If it was fair, the slug woulda got a job and sent you a nice present for sheltering him in his time of need. Instead he took what he wanted and demanded more.

I would be very happy that I learned this lesson with it costing me more for the learning experience. Slipping a tablespoon of applesauce into each of his clean sox is probably going too far.

Well ,I gotta say , you do make some sense at times , I mean for a nut-case..! I,ve been the same way many times and it always got complicated , friends lose sight of friendship when expectations run high..!

I have been an a$$ hole for years and can assure that is not the way a true a- hole would have handled the situation. He should consider himself lucky you are a good guy.

Maybe you should have posted his Rights:

(Articles II, IV and maybe IX sort of covers your situation)



"We, the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help
everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid any more riots,
keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of
debt free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren,
hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense
guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional, and other
liberal bed-wetters.

We hold these truths to be self-evident:

That a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim
that they require a Bill of- No-Rights.

ARTICLE I:

You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV or any other form of
wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is
guaranteeing anything.

ARTICLE II:

You do not have the right to never be offended. This country is based on
freedom, and that means freedom for everyone- not just you! You may leave
the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc., but the world
is full of idiots, and probably always will be.

ARTICLE III:

You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver
in your eye, learn to be more careful, do not expect the tool manufacturer
to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.

ARTICLE IV:

You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most
charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we
are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of
professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of
another generation of professional couch potatoes.

ARTICLE V:

You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from
the looks of public housing, we're just not interested in public health
care.

ARTICLE VI:

You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap,
rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest of
us want to see you fry in the electric chair.

ARTICLE VII:

You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat
or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don't be surprised
if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still
won't have the right to a big screen color TV or a life of leisure.

ARTICLE VIII:

You don't have the right to demand that our children risk their lives in
foreign wars to soothe your aching conscience. We hate oppressive
governments and won't lift a finger to stop you from going to fight if you'd
like. However, we do not enjoy parenting the entire world and do not want
to spend so much of our time battling each and every little tyrant with a
military uniform and a funny hat.

ARTICLE IX:

You don't have the right to a job. All of us sure want all of you to have
one, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take
advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid
before you to make yourself useful.

ARTICLE X:

You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you
have the right to pursue happiness - which by the way, is a lot easier if
you are unencumbered by an overabundance of idiotic laws created by those of
you who were confused by the Bill of Rights."
