Ya did the right thing. Ya can't let a friend ( or so called friend) Take advantage of you.
Also dont let the female cousin take advantage of you.

Gearhead, are you somehow worth any less than your friend is? He's in a tough spot but you didn't adopt him.

Bingo...

You thought you were helping a childhood friend... All along he KNEW you were his bitch.

This person took advantage of your trust, cost you money, and you did not even get a piece of ass out of it!

Should you feel bad for kicking him out? Really? No... But you should feel like a punk for getting used.

Now sack up, take out the trash, get on with your life, and remember... Freeloaders MUST have an impeccable RACK.

Tack

Well, if he was really your best friend, he would pack his ass up and get out. Its time for him to grow up. Show him the door! Tell'em I love you bro, but I gotta be me!!

No good turn ever goes unpunished. And the Pathway to Hell is paved with good intentions. This goes double when helping Family, Friends and Preachers.

Have the same/ opposite situation. Since my divorce I have let a friend stay with me. His divorce was way worse than mine. He came home from Iraq still temporarily deaf and with his shoulder torn up from a roadside bomb that blew up the truck he was driving, to find his wifes boyfriend living in his house. In the mess that followed the wife managed to get a bruise and had him arrested for domestic violence. He later found out the she had been screwing a couple of cops in advance of this to make it stick easier.

This guy is working two jobs, he does not do drugs, he is subject to random testing where he works so I know he is clean. Every time he gets a little money ahead to help with the bills around here one of his daughters calls and needs money for something or other.

The other problem is he is too helpful around the house, when he does dishes he does not get them clean and I have to redo them, if he puts the dry dishes away I can't find them when I need them. I know the last of these is petty but it drives me nuts when I can't find the tool, or pan, or whatever when I need it.

I don't want to throw him out, It really is not costing me anything for him to be here. The bills would be the same either way. But I am going nuts dealing with him.

I signed a letter of responsibility which allowed my little brother ( 56 years old ) to get out of prison 2 years early but I am responsible for his actions to an extent.

I allowed him to move into my trailer at the gravel pit that I use as an office ( 14 X 70 with a 12 X 28 add on ) 3 bed rooms. So I can still use the living room and kitchen as meeting rooms and the rest room.

He has a degree in Computer Aided Drafting and won many awards at Naval Avionics until the drugs took over his life. I have put restrictions and requirements on him but I have to keep pressing him to get a job, or at least look for one. With my pushing he is enrolled with Vocational Rehabilitation at WorkOne and I make him work in the gravel pit when he is not doing anything else. I make him do the jobs he does not like in an effort to encourage him to strike out on his own.

I also made it clear that the local SWAT teams train in my pit and drug dogs will be there several times every week. I told him this before his release and he stated I was trying to keep him locked back up. I stated no I was telling him before hand so that that there would be no surprises and he would not even try to sneak drugs again.

He feels I am not doing enough for him, he wants a better car ( I let him drive an old 1998 Cavalier ) wants Dish Network, wants hi speed internet, the list goes on.

I am about ready to call the parole officer and state “Things are not working out” as part of the condition of release states that is all I have to do and he will go back for the remainder of his term. I have told him this and he will “find Jesus” for a week or so then right back to the old ways.

Bottom line, friend, family or whoever they will all take advantage if allowed. My brother might make it 2 years and I really hope so but he might not as well and it will be because of his actions not mine!

I'm dealing with a similar situation with my youngest daughter. She's living with our oldest daughter, but we've been helping with her bills. This thread is giving me a kick in the rear to go kick her rear.
