On divorce: I dated a girl for a few years that was having a hard time getting her ex to pay child support. He'd stay at a job until the state found him and made an attempt to garnish his wages, then quit. He did that for a while until one day, while working for some sort of delivery service, he wound up at the office of this girl's aunt. The aunt saw him and he recognized her immediately. Her aunt said the look on his face was priceless. It must have been a good enough job because he stayed even after the state started garnishment.
On relatives: I have someone in the family that has turned into a bit of a shit show the last few years. He's a good guy, but can't seem to get things together lately. He lost his job because he was messing around on his phone at a light and slowly rear ended someone while driving a company vehicle. He then did something very similar in his personal car, which was then totaled. He found a new job, a new apartment (borrowing money from other relatives to make the move), and bought a newish car (he made payments on a loan signed for by someone else). He seemed to be doing well for a while until he started showing up late for work. He then lost that job, was evicted, and had the car repossessed. The person that signed for the loan still owes money on it, but he hasn't been making any payments to them. He's back to work now and is living in an apartment with his girlfriend. For a while they were sharing a cell phone paid for by her parents while they paid $150/month for cable. Last I heard, the parents stopped paying for the phone, but I'm guessing the cable package is still around.
