Worlds apart

When my brother in Michigan got tossed in jail for embezzlement I wrote him a letter telling him that my home was open to his daughter and to him if they needed it.  After I had emergency surgery to remove cancerous lesions from my bowel, he called the local police in my city and asked them to come to my house to tell me to return an email to my aunt.

He's an idiot.  Oh, and the money he embezzled?  He used it to go on a trip to Europe and Africa.  The kicker is, he had never been down to see me since I moved south in 1974.  Fuck him. 

Seriously, if you're reading this Karl fuck off.  For good.

Yeah. i supported wife's family for years. Then when i lost a job when wife got sick (right as her med bills rolled in to the employer COINCIDENCE!?!?!?) they were pro actively distancing themselves even though I never even considered asking them for help. They also got predatory, offering to buy my entire household of furniture for $10 when I was strapped for cash. Not a typo. Ten bucks.

Idiot might be too tame a word.
