I wanted to go ahead and say hello! After lurking and posting some on the GP board, figured I would like to start posting on more boards as well. DH and I married about 4 months ago, and right now we're visiting my hometown in TX, but about to head back to FL.
I'm having an issue with my brother, and I'm not sure what I should do. He's a selfish person, has thought everything should just be given to him or he's entitled to such and such. Take an example that just happened. After getting married H and I packed up and went to FL. Knowing we would come back (we are back now) to gather the rest of my things, I went ahead and left my car here as well. Two months ago while I was in FL, my brother asked if he could borrow my car since it would save him gas money. I told him yes, only until I come back to bring it back with me to FL. Shortly after he borrowed it, I receive a call from my mother asking if i could mail them the title to MY vehicle because my brother was about to sell it without my permission, because something was not working on it. This furiated my H and upset me, so I called my brother to figure out what the fluck was going on. He told me he managed to fix it while he was at work, and won't be selling it. I told him to not sell it without my permission and it ran fine before I left, and I'm still planning to bring it back to FL when I get back. A few weeks ago we came back, and when I spoke to him I asked if he has found a new vehicle so I could pick mine up. He said he thought my H was buying me a new vehicle and he could have mine. Uhm, what?! No one ever gave him this idea, and I told him numerous times that it will be coming back with me. Well, once he got a new vehicle some days ago, I picked mine up. I cannot believe what I saw. It was filthy inside, the gas light was on, and it runs horribly! I kindly let him borrow it so he could save money and he doesn't even manage to take care of it! I've spoken with my family about his actions lately, and they all have a story to share about his selfish attitude. In fact, my mother said they don't have much of a relationship anymore, and what's left is only so she can have a relationship with her new grandaughter (brothers daughter). DH and I are about to leave for FL again, and I'm thinking I don't want to speak to my brother for some time. He knows I'm not happy with him for what he's left me with, and there's a few other little issues that I have not mentioned that are affecting this decision as well. He's left me with no apologies or respect.
