I've been saving some money for a self-started college fund since my mom never started one for me. I had just under 3k saved up, but mom borrowed about 1500 from me; 1k of it for the rent (which I'm not upset about) but the rest collectively adds up to nothing more than cigarettes and alcohol. Which I am upset about.
Money for us is tight right now, I get that, we're all making sacrifices. And I want to help with rent as much as possible, if she asked -for the rent- I would gladly sacrifice the rest of my college fund. But I want her to stop asking me to buy her her vices. Does that make me selfish or greedy? It's like "I just want to save myself a freaking college fund! Why must I buy you your booze?" :/
