Dear Future Mother In Law: How Your Son’s Debt Became MY Problem

Dear future mother in law:  I realize I have a better job than your son, but that does not make me responsible for tracking and paying the $6,000 in credit card debt he racked up prior to being with me.  It does not make me responsible for his half of the rent.  I work fifty hours a week just to afford to keep getting to and from work, to pay my half of the rent, and to keep the power on in this place.  You picking him up on his days off when he is supposed to be looking for a new job so he can play RuneScape or some other BS at your house IS NOT HELPING THINGS.  I understand he is your son, but stop enabling his lazy butt or he will end up living back with you.  You are his mother, I am not.  I am also not a gift dispenser for your younger kids as much as they think I am.
