It's frustating to watch, but I have an aunt and uncle who are retired and their daughter, in her 50s, and two grandkids, in their 30s who leech off them.
The daughter has been helped out numerous times (paying HOA dues, downpayment for house etc.). THey lent her money to start a hair salon, and it went under because she couldn't wake up and open the place before noon. The place went under and that money is gone forever.
Her son (their grandson) was raised by my aunt and uncle and has 3 kids by different women and lived with them until he was almost 30. That winner doesn't want to go to school, and ended up working in an ice cream store and slipped and fell and injured his back. He ended up needing surgery, and instead taking the insurance settlement and going to trade school or something, he bought a truck, jewelry for his wife, and they all went on a vacation. Now he's broke again.
Their grandaughter, who lost her house, was saving up to buy another house so she moved into their house (rent free) with her husband and 2 kids (yes, my aunt and uncle are supporting their great grandkids). They were in there almost 2 years, and never did so much as buy groceries once. They bought a place, and renovated it while still living with my aunt and unlce. They fixed the pool first, so they could go there and cool off and have parties. It took months to finish the house because they only worked on it on the weekends...when they weren't tired or weren't having pool parties.
To add insult to injury, the grandaughter has a 2015 blinged out SUV. I told her she is broke because of doing stupid stuff like leasing that truck. She proceeded to tell me how stupid I was, because she's saving money since she's leasing it because it's $200 a month cheaper to lease it than to buy it because of her bad credit. And she's NOT broke she just had bad credit because of when she wasn't paying her bills on time. The stupid, it burns!
And...she didn't want to sell her furniture while she was living with my aunt and uncle so she was paying $200+ a month to store it...for 2 years. And this isn't Ethan Allen furniture we're talking about.
My aunt and uncle were planning on selling their house and getting something smaller because they are retired and running out of money from supporting all these deadbeats, but they couldn't sell their house until their granddaughter finished her house because "where would she and the kids live?"
Aunt and uncle both have health problems and need to sell their house (the stairs are difficult for them) and these parasites are indifferent to their suffering and want to suck them dry. When they pass away, I have no idea how they will survive after they blow through what little they have left of their inheritance.
