    Does anyone else ever have this happen, Don't get me wrong, my family is well enough off, But I have some family, That is really really well off, The problem is, when they come to visit, they always have this Attitude like our money is no good, Like anything we would want to do normally do, Like go out to dinner or a movie or anything they demand to pay for it. I get that they are being nice.

    I get that it makes them happy to show how much they care about us, But Really it's annoying, I don't like my Cousin Kathy following me into a store to trail right behind me demanding that she gets to pay for things.

    The problem is, Kathy and me were always close friends, I know in her heart she's just trying to be nice to me,
    But at this same time, It's like my pride takes a beating with this every time she comes down.

    I'm well enough off that If I needed to buy a new car today, I could afford something decent. Kathy, on the other hand, owns ten car lots in Indiana. She is so wealthy the last time she went on a bender she ended up in las vegas at the casinos and didn't even remember how she got there. She's dangerously wealthy.

    I don't like it when people force to spend money on me, But I and she had always been really close. How does someone handle a situation like this?

    Yeah, that normally makes people uncomfortable. Look at it this way you get to have actual experiences with family. That's really being messed-up if she can't remember traveling to another state. :eek:

    You make a good point, The older I get, It's more and more rare to spend time with family on any level. Thank you, That is the perspective I needed.

    And yes, The las Vagas thing really happened, And Yeah, It still blows us all away, We don't really know how it all went down either, she just called her mom from Vagas when she sobered up and let everyone know where she was. lol

    If you think about it she couldn't have gotten on a plane in that condition.

    no rich relatives on either of my sides, although my dads real dad Dunning retired and lived less than a 1/2 mile from a nude beach along ventura blvd in cali. before he died , interesting Storie in all that. but my best friend growing up, his parents were millionaires. but they were penny pinchers and didnt take it for granted being born into a place that had only dirt floors as a kid. kinda strange they had a collection of sands from beaches across the world looking back on it.
