One of my son's high school friends stayed with us for a while and he had drug problems and he was supposed to be paying a little rent which he didn't do either.  I learned the hard way.
Sad...

I had a roommate once who sort of took in a homeless guy.  He didn't move in (thank goodness), but the roommate kept buying him stuff and giving him money.  The homeless guy never made any progress toward becoming independent.  We found a "roach" on the table on our front porch one evening, and were pretty sure it was his.  My poor roommate eventually got it, with some reality talk from me and the other roommate.

For my own experience, I once bought lunch for a homeless guy.  He tried to act grateful, but it think he was actually annoyed that I was pulling him off the street where he could raise money from unsuspecting passers-by.  Now, when I want to help the poor, I give money to my church's welfare support system, where I know it will be used wisely.

If your not exactly sure what your genotype is I would wait and get on the blood type diet for a while.  For me the diet is a lot cheaper than fast food and I don't feel as hungry.  That would be a good experiment.  See what costs more fast food or fresh fruits and veggies...

Depends on what you mean by "cost"!

They have money for drugs, but not for rent?  Intolerable.

Sorry for taking so long to respond! I'm in Ohio and Mr. Ike (the hurricane) decided to pick up energy and give us hurricane force winds and take our electricity w/ it. We've been out since Sunday and are still out at home (we just got power back at work). Everything in our fridge is trashed. So, that's fun! Especially w/ everything that's recently happened, food is interesting right now w/ no way to cook it
Thank you guys for your great ideas!

On the other topic - my ex-fiance was like one of those you are talking about. I practically supported him and gave him a place to live and was just used for that 'til I kicked him out. Unfortunately people like this make it hard for those who need help and would be eternally grateful for it to get the help they need because people learn the hard way not to trust anymore. It's sad.
