Irresistible force about to meet immovable object
About a year ago I posted on SOD (Significant Other - Daughter) being unhappy with her new apartment, because it wasn't up to her "standards." Well, it's been a year and her lease is about up. I am 99.5% sure that she will be changing apartments again (since she has never stayed anywhere more than a year), and rents have gone WAAAAYYYY up in our part of Utah. My SO currently pays 100% of the current apartment costs, and even to stay in the same place would mean an increase of $150/month. Since SOD is certainly going to want a bump up to a better apartment, that would mean SO's monthly expeses would go up more like $300-$400/month.
SO's entire bi-weekly paycheck is instantly vaporized, between her own bills and also the amount she pays for SOD's rent. She is terrified of disappointing SOD (i.e. not bankrolling her), but at the same time you can't squeeze blood from a turnip. Really wondering what SO is going to do. Working an additional job to support SOD is not an option, since she already provides 2 full days of babysitting every week so SOD can work. Going to be interesting.
