    I’m 18 working full time trying to get a head start in life by saving which is impossible because my mom takes all my money..

    It was her idea I stay home but she kind of gave me no choice because she is dependent on me to help pay all the bills

    she is working herself but her hours were cut back in the economic crisis, and she talks of getting another job but hasn’t bothered.

    I make a minimum wage of 300 per week

    Out of that money I have to give 100 to my mom for “rent”

    Pay 40 on a landline phone bill (which make maybe 3 calls a week off)

    Then she complains and whines about she doesnt have money left for food and If I say “I cant give you anymore this week” she gets very mad with me, talks with a bi’tch tone of voice and ignores me / basically you cant live with her when shes like this. So I give her $40 to shut her up

    THEN she goes on & on about how the car needs fuel and the tank is below half & blah blah blah and goes “Oh well, I’ll just stay at home” “I wish I was dead” and all this pathetic stuff so I give her $20 for it..

    & I have to pay for HER petrol, for HER car.

    I get public transport (buses, trains, taxi’s) or I walk because realistically i cant afford a car of my own

    she is the only family I have, my dad left before I was born and she’s not giving me much of a choice here its not like i can let her drown in debt & let the bills go unpaid – I think I love her but she is really pushing my buttons & pi’ssing me off big time.

    So In the end I am working 38 hours a week for 100 dollars! IM OVER IT

    My brother and I really want a cat. We’re both willing to pay for it, and a cat would work well, as we are a small pets family, in our household.

    But for some reason my parents refuse to let us adopt a cat. And I don’t know how to convince them other-whys.

    I can’t impress them by showing my matureness, as I already do all my chores (for free) when I’m asked to. It’s expected of me.

    So, please, how can I convince my parents to let my brother and me get a cat?
    BlueGuitarGrrl: I used to have a pet dog, but then she got too old and passed. And we used to have hamsters as well, but, they passed away.

    So, despite your belief, I’m not whining. I just miss having an animal as a friend.
