    Uh, does he know how to fix your scanner? This could influence whether or not I decide to help you.

    I'm not sure that would be the best move for your kids. They are the only things you should be concerned with. You don't need another grown up kid to deal with.

    Damned if I know. I doubt it though.

    Him and I don't get along, we hardly even fucking talk and he's the meanest person in the world to me. There's a reason I know how to fight like a motherfucker, and it's from defending myself against him for years.

    His shit fell apart once before, and I let him move in with me - it was painful. His shit has fallen apart again, and he needs help.

    He's my brother - I can't say no. I wouldn't say no. But I am goddamn scared of how this is going to pan out.

    Agreed. But he's my family. I just can't say no..............I can't find it in myself.

    He's sleeping in his fuckin' car.

    No. My parents are smarter than I am, and absolutely won't let him. He was removed from the marital home.............all his buddies are married.

    A hotel, I guess - but despite making good money, he's got 7 kids by 4 different women that he pays for. So he can't afford that.

    Just because he's your brother doesn't mean you have to do anything unless you somehow feel responsible for the way he is. (which I know isn't the case)

    If anyone should take him in it should be his parents. You shouldn't be responsible for him.

    From what I've read, this dude lives by his own rules and would agree to anything just to get what he wants only to do what he wants in the end.

    Would you watch your sibling sleep in the car? Would you tell your brother or sister no, if all they needed was a little help for a little while?

    And I gotta tell you, I'd rather deal with it than have my parents. I'm still fairly young, my mom is already wired tightly, and my dad has heart issues. I'd rather be the buffer so they don't HAVE to.

    He's not your responsibility. Fuck it. Make him get an apartment or something. If he is making money (regardless of his payment obligations), he'll figure out a way to pay for rent. If he was nice to you that would be one thing. But if he treats you like shit then forget it. Hell, his own parents told him to go fuck himself. That says a lot about him.
