H31N0US: Endive Wombat: I just could not imagine doing that to your child.

I was a bit of a fark up during the latter half of high school, despite breaking the curves on any standardized tests taken before 10th grade. Needless to say, parents and teachers were pissed. Long story short, I found myself homeless in the middle of winter during my senior year. I slept in a friend's basement on a cot by the furnace until I graduated, and needless to say I stared putting effort into school at that point. Eventually went to college, got a masters and a real job blah blah blah but there was no greater reality check than seriously considering which dumpster would be the warmest place to sleep that night I was booted. Luckily, said friend saw me walking on Rt 9 and pulled over.

This girl doesn't seem like a problem child, but she does need a reality check. Her current ward is not doing her any favors by enabling her. My guess is there's a boyfriend involved, and would not be surprised if that's who's parents took her in.


I have no idea why but for some reason I read this in Fins voice from Law and Order-SVU.

This is what enabling does for people.  Just like welfare, if you take care of somebody with no consequences for their actions they'll never want to get off the tit.

steamingpile: ferretman: The 'ME' generation poster child.

Yeah spoiled biatch generation is closer to reality.

The step kid thinks we have to buy him the car he picked out, a Cadillac escalade, because in his words "we make enough". I simply told him "no, there is no we me and his mother make enough, you just get to mooch for a while".

But it shouldn't shock me since he thinks every kid has a 30" flat screen, ps3, and a personal PC in their bedroom.


Flat screens are cheap.

We still think of them as luxury items, but they aren't, really.

A personal Personal Computer?

MyRandomName: Pangea: She's suing them to pay for her college education?

Why stop there. She should sue them to purchase her a home of her own.

Everyone is entitled to a comfortable standard of living regardless of effort or personal choices. I learned it in threads saying you're supposed to earn enough to support your wife and three children at the shiattiest fast-food job available , at the lowest wages you can legally be paid.

The only slight support I have of this girl is the fact colleges are obligated to use parental income in financial aid calculations even if they play no part in the girls life. Pretty farking stupid.


If your parents claim you as a dependent for tax purposes, your financial aid is based on their income until you are 24, iirc.

I've had several friends who have delayed college until that age because their parents were claiming them, even though they got no financial support in any way from their parents.

Fissile: "Canning's father, retired Lincoln Park Police Chief Sean Canning,"

Her dad retired from the Lincoln Park PD with a $95K pension at the ripe old age of 47.   Most of you reading this probably don't realize what NJ municipal police jobs are like.   They get hired through nepotism or patronage, get paid big money for doing little or no work, have Cadillac health care plans, and defined benefit pension plans that make third world dictators envious.  When they retire, mostly in their 40s, they are handed checks for $200K-$300K for  unused/sick/vacation/personal days. Apparently these supermen never take a day off.  The weekend after they retire, they are rehired at some other government job,usually paying at least six figures, while they collect six figure pensions from their police jobs.

Is this girl a spoiled, lazy, entitled, do-nothing?  Yup.  I wonder where she learned it.


She's going to inherit it, anyway; he may as well give it to her now.

They could have told their parents to pound sand and filed their own taxes.

Yes, purchased with cash from an ATM machine, where you put in your PIN number.

Ummm... Those 3 things could be purchased for $600 or so. About the same cost as one year's worth of school clothes.
I'm pretty sure most kids do have that much stuff in their bedrooms, especially the ones whose parents can't really afford it.

I was gonna say, I can't imagine kicking my slack teen out for anything less than a jail-able offence, but if dad-o is a cop, sassy eyerolls and slow obedience are jail-able aren't they? At least for a few hours. Yup. Definitely more to the story, methinks.

Pretty much.

There is more to this story.  Look at the cop dad.  Just another overpaid, under-worked, Joisey, roid-case, meatball.

Mrs Canning added: 'She also told the worker that she had threatened suicide and my reaction was that I "high-fived" my husband. this was so outrageously offensive that it did not deserve to be addressed, but we gladly addressed it with the caseworker.


I sort of believe this allegation.
