Its a Beautiful Morning

It is just great to have parents. I get a call from my mother this morning.

“You have to drop the charges against your sister” she demands

Apparently she has another court date this Friday and my mother does not want to be stuck taking care of her son.

“Umm.. Sorry, but it is CitiBank not me.” I say.

“So you wont drop the charges”. She says

“Umm.. I am not CitiBank, and I do not have 1500 bucks laying around (anymore, Damn bankroll!), umm… what do you expect me to do?” I ask.

“She only wrote one check to a car dealer and they did not cash it”, is her reply.

“umm.. why don’t you ask her about the 4 other checks” I say.

“oh, well your dad is sick, you have to drop the charges”, she says.

Now I think I know my dad is dieing of cancer. Thanks for reminding me. Anyway, I decided not to drop the charges. I think you can kind of see the reason my sister is all messed up. She never had any consequences. Well I know I am not her dad, but she needs to learn a lesson. I really think spending a month or so in jail would be good for her. I would hope she would realize that her actions have effects, however I think she will probably just come out blaming me for the whole thing. Who knows? Well that concludes my morning. Hope you’re off to a fine day too.

My day will be sufficiently ruined by having the "it's a beautiful morning" song in my head all day - thanks! :) Tough deal on the family situation. Parents can tend to lose objectivity when it comes to seeing their kids go through bad times (like your sister in jail). Keep a clear head and do what you think is right. It's your money, anyway, that was taken; it's not like you have no right to be upset. You can only hope this does her some good and helps get her back on track. Good luck with all that.

Sounds so much like my Mom. She has been bailed out for almost 56 years now, and has never learned a lesson.

Now she is a drug addict, can't even walk anymore, doesn't eat, has no hair or teeth left, and looks at least 75. Her life is in ruins, and she has still never learnt a lesson, nor grown up.

Don't give in, you are only helping your sister, not hurting her, in the long run (hopefully).

A tough one, but hang in there. The family may not like it, but you're not the "little boy" any more.

Based on what you've said, you're doing the Right Thing(tm).

She needs to learn the lesson, not saying that jail time will do the trick but its a good motivator.

Doing the right thing for someone you care about doesn't mean enabling them to keep screwing up. You are doing the right thing even if the only thing it does is stop her from stealing from you.
sorry to hear about your father, all I can do is pass along positive thoughts for him.
