When you give money to somebody it becomes theirs to do with as they please, you cannot control how they spend it. If you want it to go towards bills then you need to write a check to the utility company etc, not give the person cash. Live and learn.

I misunderstood about the rent money, too.

In one post you say you "think" she was fired for stealing, in this one you say she "was" fired for stealing. Is it possible she was fired for trying to steal your rent money?

And I agree, her taking money from people thinking they are helping out with bills, and then vacationing, is just flat wrong.

I can understand your frustrations big time. My best friend helped out her neighbour so that she could keep her home and buy her daughter diapers.

Nikki, if your family member continues down this path, she is eventually going to suffer worse consequences than being fired. First of all, I wouldn't trust her with any of my personal business dealings. Luckily, she's no longer the manager where you live...that's a good start! Second, since there's really nothing you can do for her, I would encourage you to focus on yourself. I know you care for her, but you can't live her life for her. All you can do is try to be a good example. Good luck to you!
