Well that excuse didn’t last
When Goofy and Little Idiot (SD22.5) were visiting for Christmas, one of the many gifts that they received was a restaurant gift certificate. When they opened it up, Goofy exclaimed, "Well this we will definitely use! We are always ordering DoorDash!" Of course, Little Idiot immediately stammered "Er... well... that's because we can't cook at home, you know, because of (Goofy's mom's bf)....he makes using the kitchen awkward... we would cook obviously when we have our own place"
I thought at the time yeah right, she has never so much as helped set a table. Meals have been prepared for her by someone else all her life. The Skunk Ape never taught her to cook and she never showed any interest in learning herself. The vegetable chopper and hand mixer she bought on Amazon will sit untouched and the dropping 30-70 bucks a pop on DoorDash will continue. She doesn't even want to be bothered with picking up her own food, let alone making it.
Well here we are a week into the new apartment and the DoorDashing continues just like I thought it would. They will never have any money for the big things they want in life if they keep spending it on expensive takeout.
In other knees, when she texted to tell us she got the apartment, I said "Congratulations! I know you will love it. So much more FREEDOM" (DH just said "tell her to make sure she makes the rent each month". I thought he was going to go on about how mature she was for having her own place but thankfully he said nothing.)
