Yeah,.----I had a Brother who was a hard core gambling addict......and every time he came around, it was some sob story about why he needed money..........and I tried to help him hundreds of times, but the last time he came around, ........back when I was working my own way thru college, I told him flat out, I was tapped out, and my rent was due the next day, and I couldn't spare a dime.
He still persisted, and hounded me, as was his MO...........never to leave without getting *something*------
but I was firm this time and told him the answer was NO. N O ------NOOOOOOOO.
so he stole my wallet, with my rent money, and we got into a scuffle, when I realized he had it.
In the fight, he dropped the wallet, and bolted out the door.........no doubt thinking he still had it .
I wish I could have seen the look on his face, when he realized he dropped it.
Didn't see him for YEARS after that..........
