Dear Sista Mama:
The other day, after 5 years of dating, my boyfriend told me that he was leaving because he was bored. This came totally out of left field as I had no idea he felt that way; especially on the weekends when we always had such great sex. How could I have been so blind? And more importantly, what am I going to do? I love him and I can't live without him!
I am an 18-year-old man who cannot understand my parents. They have told
me that I need to either get a job, join the army, or move out but that they were no
longer going to support me. They have told me that I could live with them for another
year, but that I would have to pay rent. I think this is totally ridiculous! Why I should
I have to pay rent to my mother and father? I didn't ask to be born! They HAVE to take
care of me. And as for a job, I am not going to work at McDonald's for $5 an hour! That
won't buy one pair of Air Jordans. And I am not going to the army! How can I make my
parents see that they're wrong?
Get your freeloading adult butt out of your parents' house and get a JOB! Exactly how many reasons do you need for you having to support yourself? Uuhmmm let me see...you're grown, your parents worked to feed you, clothe you, keep you under a roof for 18 years. Now is the time for them to relax and enjoy their twilight years. Grow up, get a grip, and get a job!
My grandmother (my mother's mother) died a few years ago.
After she died, my mother gave me my grandmother's diamond and gold wedding ring
saying that my grandmother always wanted me to have it. It was over 60 years old.
Recently, I realized that I had either misplaced it or lost it. My mother asks me
about it from time to time and I am scared to tell her the truth. It wasn't insured
either. What should I do?
Lawd ha' mercy chile! I think you need to get busy searching your house, room by room. If you're lucky you've misplaced it. If you've lost it, t'ain't too much you can do about it. That will be a tough lesson to learn---either insure valuables that can't be replaced or put them in a vault in a bank.
