Millennials...LOL
So, my daughter came home the other day after work and told me that she was just in the Starbucks line and paid for the coffee for the person behind her. When she got to the window, the barista informed her that she was the 6th person in line to do that (pay it forward, I suppose). Now a little background about my daughter: she’s 24, lives at our home with my sweet grandchild, has a minimum wage job, a piece of crap car that we(her parents) maintain and not much else success-wise going on in the foreseeable future. I was angry that she decided to pay it forward when she doesn’t have a pot to piss in and told her as much! She replied saying I would be the asshole gen xer that would break up the “giving” momentum and just get my own coffee, lol. I told her that was probably true IF I ever went to Starbucks in the first place, which I don’t and won’t. I also reminded her that delivering a sandwich or two to a homeless person is a much better option when it comes to charitable giving. Not paying for someone’s coffee that obviously has it so good they can pay $7 for a cup of shitty hipster coffee. This world is getting more and more screwed up and backwards every...single...day!

Re: Millennials...LOL
So why are you enabling her?

24 and she still lives at home?

Jesus Christ man......

Grow some balls and tell her to grow the fuck up......

She isn't going to amount to shit if she knows she can just get free shit from mommy and daddy.....

You are the reason most young kids these days expect free shit.....thanks slot, Bernie!

No, not enabling- we’re just at our wits end with her. She has a job and contributes to the household what she can, she just doesn’t make very much to begin with. She also messed up and had a baby too young. What would you do if this were your child, throw them out on their ear with your grandchild in tow? We’re helping her the best way we know, by offering her a place to stay so at least there’s not the added stress of worrying about them living under a bridge somewhere.
Her Starbucks, and the idiot’s behind her was paid for using a gift card that she got for Christmas btw.

Good one AC! Now why on earth would we do that?? I said ^^ that I don’t ever and won’t ever go to Starbucks. The gift card was a gift from someone she works with. We paid for a couple of college classes as our gift from us to her and a little selfishly hoping it’s our gift as well, that she can get out with her kiddo and start making a decent living on her own.

So she is not focused on material gain and is not material attached, maybe you could learn a thing from her. Just letting it go because this world is not worth investing in.

If she is focusing on spiritual growth she is doing great. Debt, liberal brainwashing and no guarantee on a job is what can be the reality of investing in college and this world. Better invest in spiritual treasures.

"Pay it forward".... that sounds like yet another pathetic liberal attempt to virtue signal what an amazing human being they are.

WRONG! We’re all pasty white here- baby daddy and baby too. She made a mistake with having her kid too young, she’s very pretty, but a loner and doesn’t go out of her way looking for respectable men. There’s no hope of marrying her off until she’s good and ready, haha.

Re: Millennials...LOL
It might be a nice idea for someone (not you unless she is willing) to talk with her about budgeting. Or point her to books or videos.

I do think, mom, that you might have to keep your mouth shut about particular decisions (I could be wrong about that). It can get annoying when people that live together pick apart each other decisions.

The advice to learn the budget stuff doesn't ever have to get down to her particular decisions.

It's a hard line but when adults are living together they have to allow each other space.

You can also come from your side and give your expectations of what is expected from an adult in your home. But without talking about her decisions, rather just your expectations.

If you are fine with HER picking apart YOUR decisions, that does set up a different situation. If you can start the discussion like: hey, you told me to stop drinking so much and I have, so, can I give you some advice?
