I was watching DVD in my room and i heard someone at the door... I didn't bother to see who's there and then i heard my mum in the kitchen calling me softly...
So i went out and see who's there.... and it turned out that it's my ex-neighbour.. the one who's always coming over to borrow $$$$$$
We are not a charity organisation! Is there a sign that says... "Interest Free loan available here!" hanging on my front door?
She as been coming over to ask for $$$ .. to see the doc according to her (she's about 75 or so) and my mum was nice enough to give her $100 for it.. and a few months ago.. the eldest daughter of this lady came to borrow $200!! She is divorced...and now is pregnant with the child of this man she is living with. And this man can't even support her!!
My mum also lent her sister, let's call her A, $200 earlier.
A took care of me when i was young.. When mum was busy with her work, A would take care of me, play with me and feed me. I was close to her when i was young but not anymore when we moved away ... but we still keep in contact.
I feel sorry for A because A earns only about $400 a mth (before CPF!!). Mum has asked her to find another job but she is reluctant! I have no idea why! Anyway, A couldn't pay her bills and borrowed $1500 from the loan sharks! And now she has to pay $180 interest every month and that's just only the interest! It does not even include that $1500!
I don't know what's wrong but these people keep coming to us for $$$ and- we are not rich! And We just feel so fed up cos these people are not doing anything about it but keeps coming over to ask for $$$ and i don't think they have the means to return it to us...
And sometimes i am fed up with my mum cos she is too softhearted.. when people wants to borrow $100.. she lends them $200 instead!!
And there's this lady who owes her a few thousand $$$$ and now her shop has closed down and she did not even tell us about it and now my mum has trouble contacting her.
I am so fed up!
My mum is a widow and you people have husbands, brothers, sisters, daughters and sons who are now all grown up and earning $$$$, why can't you people just return my mum her $$$!
I get very annoyed when i hear of such things.. my sisters too... but sometimes mum just says.. "forget it, they will return it some day" ...
My mum is so nice.. sometimes way too nice.. and i hate it when people take advantage of that.
I hope God will bless her and those who doesn't return her the money be punished!
