    Is there something bad about being friends with Australians?

    So my relatively peaceful life has been somewhat interrupted by my brother turning up on the door step with a bag of clothes informing me that our mother has kicked him out.

    I asked her why and she said his attitude stinks and he keeps falling out of work .

    He said her attitude stinks, and he made the mistake of abandoning his steady job in search of greener grass... Which he never found

    Great. I don't know what I can do to help, I'm renting my own room as it is, and I just pissed this months wages up the wall.

    His timing sucks, and his communication skills suck.

    Mom's right, he might as well go and work for NASA, because there's Never A Straight Answer when it comes to him.

    For the last 6 months he's been in and out of work, but you ask him why and he'll either 1) tell you it's none of your business 2) lie.

    He had a really cushy job, regular, well paid, and with benefits... But he got too big for his boots, and started acting like the Big I AM.

    Me and his boss discussed it in the pub this one time last year.. the boss is a friend of the family.

    So whatever he's done, which he wont tell me, he's now found himself jobless and homeless... And he looks major depressed.

    Which is totally bumming me out, because he's my brother. But at the same time I'm really annoyed. He had the easy life years whilst I had to leave home and earn a crust the hard way. He was given a leg up, and what does do with it? Piss it into the wind.

    I've only just about finished pulling my own life out the gutter, amd now I need to work on his

    ^kick him to the curb. There are people in this world who are perfectly content being supported by people who can't afford to support them. They manipulate you into feeling obligated to help them, despite being perfectly able to help themselves. Your brother sounds like one of those people.
