Auntie Linda

Dear Auntie Linda, I can’t stand my sister’s husband.  He is crude, boorish, and ignorant.  I am embarrassed  to be seen in public with him.  I love my sister and want to spend time with her, but her husband is another story.  I can tolerate him at family gatherings, but don’t want to invite him to social occasions with my friends.  How do I ask her not to bring him?  Different Class of Person

Dear Different, You don’t.  He is your sister’s husband, not yours.  They are a pair.  Chances are, he doesn’t care to come to your social gatherings, anyway.  He probably thinks you are snobbish and your parties are boring.  Auntie Linda

Dear Auntie Linda,  My granddaughter and her husband are working and going to college.  They are very independent and didn’t want to ask for help, so they went to a payday loan company.  You can guess the rest.  After being late twice and finding the owed an astronomical balance, they approached me for a loan.  I did the math and paid off their loan as a gift, since they wouldn’t be able to pay it back in the foreseeable future.  At the point, they had a 600% interest rate and owed $2000.  Payday Loan places should be outlawed.  They victimize desperate people.  Grandpa

Dear Grandpa, Payday Loans are not installment loans.  People should know they incur horrendous penalties and interest rates if they don’t pay on time.  It is unlikely a payday loan will be in benefit of borrower.  It’s good you were able to help them out!  Auntie Linda
