"Yeah you. My ex did the same thing. For some reason he wouldn't come clean out his stuff. I put everything in those extra large trash bags, backed my truck up into his new yard and dumped it all. Ahhh.. I felt better immediately."
"My Grandmother caught me with two pieces of candy. One I popped in my mouth as we were getting out of the car (that's what busted me then she busted my butt) the other I had to take back to the store and apologize as well. It certainly made an…"
"Also, and forgive me if you've already researched this, but it may not be legal for them to provide you with so little notice and/or no moving costs. It depends on where you live and what the ordinances are. I know some legal schmegal folks in…"
"90% of my work clothes were bought by my mom, including the fancy briefcase and the laptop. I credit her largely with the success of my career in the last year and a half. I'd be lookin' shabby without her."
"Yes and I hate it. It helps to know that my parents still ask their parents for help on occasion. This past weekend the jerry rigging that Sailor had done on our car window to make it stay up was broken when I go the oil changed and they tried to…"

"That totally sucks to have next to no notice that you have to move. We've borrowed money in the past and probably will again - my parents are good about lending it but it's totally a financial deal and we are expected to make payments with…"
"Yup, yup, yup... the shame, the self-recrimination, "why at 43 do I still have to ask my parents for money?" Been there, still doing that. It does suck, even knowing how lucky you are to have them to ask. I'm sorry you're having…"
"CPF- man you must be psychic. It's all right there in the front of my mind. My age, where I thought I'd be by now, blah, blah, blah. You are sooooo right. It is painful to face those not so bright moments and then somehow be able to kick…"
"Oh yes. Just a few months ago I had to call my mom and ask for money to pay some medical bills. There shouldn't be any shame in it (our crappy health insurance company is the one that should be ashamed, really), but I still felt a bit loserly.…"
"I'll see that you get the new membership packet for admittance into our club. I hate this--I feel like, at my age, I should've been beyond independent a decade ago. But, yeah--it's a painful necessity, especially now. No one cares…"
