Backstory: My dad can’t seem to remember to pay his rent, health insurance, or any other bills. Or remember which of his bank accounts has any money in them. So we finally convinced him to send us some money every month to pay those bills, and then we pay the rest and divide up the total between us.
He hasn’t given us a check in a few months.
Me: What do you want to do this month about his rent, insurance, and cable?
Serena: Did he send a check? We need to pay insurance.
Me: He didn’t send a check, we gave him the insurance bill and told him to pay it.
Then of course… he never sent a check, no one answered the question about what to do, and the insurance got canceled but we did get it reinstated. It’s hard enough having a crazy drug addict dad who can’t pay his bills and yells at you when you try to help him. Trying to coordinate it with two sisters causes a lot of conflict.
