I go on line to look on her account. Holy-bejesus. She's over drawn by $17.00. How can you overdraw on a debit card?
$17.00 od ammt.
$25.00 fee
$15.00 fee to post a deposit immediately
$100.00 deposit=
So she could eat at Taco bell Wednesday evening.
She got home. I asked her about her bad decisions and the debacle. She, of course cried and made me feel bad. Promises made to do better. She had supper with family and was happy and chattering away. She really is the bright light of this bunch. Always a blessing to be around.
I swear to god, I couldn't believe it. She had the temerity to ask her Dad for money to go to town and go to the movie with her penniless boyfriend. Of course he gave her a crisp new $100 bill. Wth?
I will be giving this girl money when she 40yo.
I just know it.
I don't know about 40 YO, but my wife does it for her daughter (my stepdaughter) and the daughter is 32 YO...with an MA in education.

Need a deposit for a new apartment? Bank of Mom.

Upgrading her cell phone (we pay for her service on our family plan)? Bank of Mom.

Going to a music festival with friends? Bank of Mom.

New tires for her Saturn? Bank of Mom.

My wife doesn't exactly HIDE the fact that she does this, but she never mentions it voluntarily. The problem is that the daughter felt that the in-class practical training for being a teacher was too "oppressive," so she dropped that during her studies. Now she can't get a teaching license in her state. She does occasional work as a hostess or waitperson at local restaurants and brew-pubs.
