But Lane isn't a real name. It is a last name. And if it isn't a family name, it makes no sense. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I have discovered I do not like to entertain. I don't like to hang out with more than 2-4 other people at a time. And I do NOT like more than 2 other kids in my house at a time. I get so stressed out, I can't relax and actually enjoy my guests. Plus, the more the adult guests relax, the more they don't pay attention to their kids, and the kids start to trash my house. Anyone else? 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

What part of "In our house, we only eat in the kitchen" do people NOT understand? And I'll find kids stripping all the blankets off my kids' beds, jumping on the beds... [ Reply | More ]

Yup. There is one family we are friendly with, the DD literally can't keep her hands off anything. She is spoiled rotten and thinks everything is hers for the taking. She is 9, much to old for this. And whatever she touches, she breaks. Unreal. [ Reply | More ]

I hate the parents that hand out juice boxes and let the kids dribble them on the furniture. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] My brother is 50 years old, no college, lucked into a rent-controlled (seriously, rent is $300, UES) apartment when he was 21. Has worked on and off as a waiter his entire adult life. Has 15-20K in savings, maximum. One brief marriage, no children. I am 47, divorced, one child. Since divorce several years ago, live in my father's ample-sized, rent-stabilized apartment with him. He spends the winter in Florida. Brother is furious that I have been living "rent-free" all these years and wants to be compensated. Actually had this conversation with my dad, who told him he will get "something" when dad dies, that he and I will split whatever he has (by no means a lot, maybe $250K) I cannot believe what a loser piece of shit my brother is. I would LOVE to have had his $300 apartment, could have saved a fortune in 30 years. And because he frittered his life away doing jack shit, he thinks he is owed my dad's money. Am I wrong not to ever want to see this asshole again? 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Sorry. My friend went through the same thing with her sister. I wish people would stop counting other people's money and just accept that their parent will do what they think is right with THEIR money. It is their money. [ Reply | More ]

Do they have any relationship now? Is the sister similarly useless? I mean, short of being on drugs/in prison, my brother is such an embarrassment. [ Reply | More ]

No, different. Sister is married with 4 kids (and now 3 grand kids). Very successful. My friend never married. Her sister always felt like she should get 6 shares for every one for my friend. Meaning she and her husband are her kids all count. Parents wanted to divide things equally: Simple 1/2 for each child. Fair, to me. But sister believes all of her family members should have equal shares, to the detriment of my friend. Now the parents are dead, and my friend (who lived with her aunt and cared for her and her parents her entire life, as she was the "single" kid) is fighting with her sis over how much she "owes" for living "rent free" in the houses her parents and aunt left both of them equally.

Wow, that is terrible. Wish I could say I'm glad I'm not the only one but it doesn't help. People are amazing with their entitlement. [ Reply | More ]

I am the "successful" kid in my family, and the least favorite. My sister is an alcoholic who has stolen from my parents, spent much time in jail, and has lived with them off and on (and most of their savings has gone to bailing her out of debt and for her multiple rehabs). I know it isn't fair, but my mom has mentioned casually that since I "have my act together" that they will leave their money to "take care" of my sis. I have two kids and have been out of work for two years. We are struggling. But I can't let it bother me, as it is their money and their decision. I just hope she doesn't sell my mom's favorite jewelry and then drink it away. [ Reply | More ]

Jesus, I am so sorry :-( Why do you consider yourself the least favorite? What was it about your upbringing that made you successful and your sister not? Brother and I grew up with an alcoholic mother, which was admittedly rough. But when he got this great apartment he could have started getting his shit together, just never did. Now he's late middle age and a total non-starter. I am by no means super successful but I'm a world beater compared to him. [ Reply | More ]

I don't know. Always was straight-A, but butted heads with parents. Always a goody-goody. Did live with a guy before marriage, but my brother (my mom's favorite) lived with 2 women and my sister (the baby) has now lived with 10? More? But I was the oldest and maybe I disappointed them first? Or I don't need them in the way my sister makes them feel needed? I have no idea. They do love my kids and husband, but we have never been close. And my brother wrote them off years ago, but he's the golden boy, so they gush and gush and gush about him. I just had to let it go...

^^^ Not to make this a therapy session, but on my wedding day, my mother told me I "looked good." My mother tells me on every phone call that my sister looks "gorgeous" -- so healthy. lost weight, yada yada. I've never been told I even look pretty. And my sis and I are pretty much identical, except she weighs 20 lbs more than I do. I think my parents are trying to build her esteem, which is great. But they do it at my expense. [ Reply | More ]

Wow (again). Family dynamics are fascinating to me. You sound very insightful and philosophical about the whole thing. I am sure it hurts a lot though. Thanks for sharing your story! [ Reply | More ]

Thanks for asking. Living a few states away (and having a wonderful family of my own) helps a lot. :) [ Reply | More ]
