Unfortunately some people never learn

One day dh asked his mother why in the world she kept running up credit cards far beyond their lines and then taking out more credit cards to pay them. Her response “Well I’ll die soon (this was 15 years ago) and not have to worry about it. Then it will be your problem.” Seriously she said that to his face right after we had bailed her out yet again. We should have walked off right then and there, but we were stupid and didn’t instead we fixed it where she couldn’t get credit cards for years.
You would think that her children would have learned from her poor example, but dh and I are the only ones that don’t use credit cards. The other three are almost as over extended as their mother was when she made that statement to us.
