My idiot of a cousin is heading back to Texas. He just moved to Pittsburgh with my aunt and uncle since they didn't want to be in San Antonio any longer after Mason (my cousin's brother) passed away 2 years ago.

So my cousin tried to get a job two or three times, but apparently was either an a-hole to his manager or just didn't go to work. And next thing we know he's heading back to San Antonio.

He doesn't have a job.
He doesn't have an education.
He doesn't have any money.
The only thing he has is a car.

So apparently he's going back so he can be with his 'home boys' and skateboard and do drugs all day.

You know, there are very few people in the world that really, really piss me off. My cousin is definitely one of them, because he whines and complains about how horrible his life is, and thinks he can just slack off and be an a-hole to everyone he wants, and expects people to bend over backwards for him instead of trying to make anything out of his life.

My aunt and uncle are amazing people, and I honestly don't know what to think about this. It's bad enough they already lost one child, and now their other dipsh** son is leaving to get as far away from them as he can so he can drink and smoke weed and skateboard the rest of his life. What's going to happen when he doesn't have enough money to buy food? What'll happen when his skateboard buddies decide not to let him mooch off of them any longer? What about when he runs out of gas in his car? I doubt he even bothered to think about any of this.

Sorry, I'm just…I don't know what the hell he's thinking. I guess when you're a drug addict that's all you think about is getting more drugs.

    When my son was addicted to pain meds that's all and I mean all he thought about was where he was going to get more pills.  He didn't care who he lied to, stole from or mooched off of and it was horrible.  I thank God that he finally kicked them but it took him going to jail for 3 months for him to go cold turkey and learn to change his life by not going back to the friends he had before and staying away from the pills.  He is a success story, he's now doing great, going to school, living with his gf and seeing his kids that he neglected while on drugs so all is good in his world and ours.  I hope for your aunt and uncle that something will cause him to change his life but unfortunately sometimes it takes hitting rock bottom before they even think about it.  Don't do like I did and believe him and try to help only to get lied to they have to go thru this themselves with no help getting what they want….good luck…..

    Mhmm…well he changed his mind and decided to come back to his house in Pittsburgh that night.  But it sounds like he may try to leave again.  I just wish there was an answer to this – we lost Mason unexpectedly, he took a nap on the couch and never woke up.  So Mitch is my aunt and uncle's last child, and he's just been a jerk lately.


    I should be moving to Atlanta real soon so I will be much closer to Pittsburgh than where I am now.  If he decides to visit me, I'll feed him and give him a place to stay, but he won't get any alcohol or anything like that from me.  I stopped drinking after seeing my brother get drunk a few months ago.


    Thanks for the comment and advice, it means a bunch to me.  Take care.
