Read on the net:
“I don’t want this to become an issue with my son.” Ain’t THAT a bytch? I would kick his flickin’ arse, thinkin’ he could play me like this…
This lil’ mothaflucka deserves a well- planned and equipped, ass-whuppin. A down-home ass whuppin’, where he just know he ‘BET not do it again…
How dare him play my heart-strings like that; that I thought he would not make it. I promised that out of love, and he’s tryin’ to collect out of greed. The mere fact that this is presentin’ itself as a financial bind to me, and you still pressure me- your parent who raised you?- is beyond belief to me. Period.
DEAR ABBY: My 31-year-old son, “Joey,” who needs a heart transplant, almost died a few weeks ago. The doctors told us he wouldn’t make it through the weekend. I was beside myself. On what we thought was his deathbed, I told Joey I would give him anything he wanted if he pulled through.
He wanted a very expensive sports car.
Well, my son pulled through, but has other physical challenges. My husband and I are sending him $500 a month until he starts receiving money from Social Security. It’s the best we can do right now. The problem is, Joey keeps hounding me about the sports car. I cannot afford this gift. We have offered to have his current vehicle reconditioned or give him my year-old car with its very low mileage.
I do not want this to become an issue with my son. I have told him his heart condition is the priority and to let everything else fall into place. It’s eating me alive that I can’t give my son what I promised. On the other hand, his request is unreasonable.
Please help. — JOEY’S MOM IN LAS CRUCES
