I'm going to rant about my friend M for a little bit! She DRIVES ME CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't even know where to begin to describe it, but she's crazy! She is constantly down on me for my "couponing" and making fun of it and yet is constantly asking if I have certain coupons for things. She has even taken THAT one step further! I gave her some toothbrushes and toothpaste a while back. I got them for free and my stock pile was spilling out of my drawer! I am a VERY generous person and love to give to people. It made me feel good to be able to give her things that she could use! Well, ever since then she has thought of my cupboards as a free supermarket or something! One time she asked me for some diapers for her daughter because she was out. I gladly gave her some, but THEN she told me WHY she had no diapers! She was at the store to get some and couldn't find the "deal" she wanted on diapers. So rather than buying a small package of diapers to hold her over she just decided NOT to buy any! FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! If your kid needs diapers then you have to get them some no matter the "deal". Come one! I'm the queen of good deals and would never do this! Then another time she asked me to bring her a box of cereal because she was "almost out". rrrrrrr! She asks for things that I've told her I've gotten before and I've had to start lying about not having them because she EXPECTS me to give them to her! Her husband makes almost $10 per hour MORE than mine AND she works part time as well, where as I'm a SAHM. Financially we are hurting and have been for years. I love that I'm able to coupon and get good deals and share them, but I HATE that it's expected! I'm not a friggin' soup kitchen! She has a daughter the same age as Cori and it's getting to the point where I can't stand the kid! She talks CONSTANTLY and tattles all the time! She is always critisizing Cori and Ethan, and it's because she repeats what her mom says! I just don't want my kids to feel like they aren't good enough because of what they say! I am a NON-confrontational person and I just don't know what to do!
