Mom Is Out Of Line

QUESTION: Jennifer in Orlando is recently divorced. She owes her mother $70,000. Her mother is holding this debt over Jennifer’s head, and she’s not in need of the money right now. Dave says Jennifer’s mom is a travel agent for guilt trips.

ANSWER: Tell her to bite your butt. I’m serious. The lady is a travel agent for guilt trips. She’s got other issues other than just being your lender.

You’re living on beans and rice, literally, making $120,000 a year trying to clean up a $200,000 mess. The word “responsible” doesn’t enter into your ex-husband’s vocabulary, so you’re stuck with it. It’s just going to take you a little while. Mom’s just in line, and she’s going to have to get used to that idea. There’s not a lot you can do about it. She’s just a creditor.
