Last week my youngest daughter graduated from college. She has been offered a wonderful job in the cooperate world which starts in September of 2015. I have lived on a fixed income for numerous years now with no other income. I have brought her grocerys , furniture , nice winter coats, 400.00 camera for her birthday took her to sky dive on her 21st birthday day bbought her phones paid her phone bill on and on. We went to dinner with her sister and my son- in - law my daughter that gratuated and her punk boyfriend who I have always been nice too. I stated I'd pay for me and my daughter the bill comes with his food on there too which his tab alone was 40.00 he gives me a 50.00 and I through in a 50.00 and says let her keep the 20.00 I say no she was very rude to me which she was. My daughters boyfriend says to me you were rude? Like il 2 I politely say to him do not talk down to me. My daughter throws a 20.00 at me for her dinner and states we do not need any favors from you anymore! I left politely said I'm done! Her birthday is this Friday I will call her wish happy bday she will answer for certain bought her card will leave it at my place if she wants it she can come it. We see each other once a week maybe for an hour I pay to eat out and movie never takes me out for Mother's Day or my birthday I even pay for that! She recently stated she needs 5,000 to finish some classes this summer for her degree. She turned her lease in has no bills but rent with 4 roommates 350.00 a month takes care of nothing I buy her even the outfit for the new job she got she does not know what happened to it! Treats me very very disrespectful has a job now going on 3 years as a property manager has mor income than me but is always broke with no bills other then rent since she shares her boyfriends car ! What would you do?? I have stop helping her since she made it clear she needs no favors from me? They weren't favors it's what moms do or did!!
