So it looks like the six years of living car note free are coming to an end. I'm getting a new-to-me vehicle this time. Last time I bought new new and I was upside down and worried to death about it being totaled or stolen. But I made the mistake of discussing this too much with my mom. At first she was being helpful but now she is trying to be too much in my biz. I can't believe she asking me about my finances and is trying to calculate my bills to see what I can afford. None of her business. I have managed my money for 15 years without asking her for a cent. And her money management skills are not all that.

I vowed never to ask him for money again. My dad paid child support but he didn't pay anything for me to go to college. Yet he and my stepmother put my half brother through a private high school. He is 25, still lives with them and never finished college. So my dad making me feel bad about asking for the money really hurt me.
Congrats on your paycheck. God bless the child that's got his own!!!
Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it.
