He takes classes only to drop them and pick them up later usually after the drop deadline which means he is still charged for it. So as you can see he is pretty irresponsible and self centered.
Anyway he decided he wanted to make up one of the dropped classes this summer. Nice but they had to clear out of housing at the end of Spring semester, his financial aid doesnt cover summer courses, and it turns out his "job" is an unpaid internship. Well he managed to get housing, an apartment that is shared with 2 people, and he has rent of $550 a month. Since his course isnt covered by financial aid he has to pay for that out of pocket. He put the course on his Amex ($1000) and only had $800 in his bank account which covered his rent + security deposit.
My mom doesnt make lots of money and he expects her to cough up the 1000 for the course. Of course my mom wants to do it and i keep telling her "No, he needs to deal with these situations on his own". My brother calls me self centered and very rude names because I think my mom shouldnt help him out and that at 20 he should be able to think ahead and assess his situation. Of course he is the one who whined that his "maid" (ME!) left and went to college (He is 10 years younger than I am). Yes he called me his maid.
Any suggestions on how to get him some common sense before he is over his head any further? Or how to keep my mom from assisting him when she can barely make ends meet herself?
