Sometimes you feel like a nut mooch

Sometimes you don’t.

Today I do.

I bit the bullet and asked my grandfather for a loan for school. I HATE that I had to do that. I was so close to submitting an application for a loan when I decided to try to get a loan from him first. I know, never borrow money from family and all that shiz. Desperate times call for desperate measures though. If I would have stayed in school instead of quitting to get married and start a family, it would have been paid for in full by him. I know he is big on higher education. I know that I am asking him for a very good reason. It’s not like I am mooching to support a gambling or drug addiction habit...

Why do I still feel ashamed that I had to ask?


  1. Don't feel ashamed, sometimes we do things that we see fit at that time. Did he give you the money? Did he give it willingly? Yes! then reward him by finishing what you set out to do..

  2. You do what you have to do. He obviously wanted you to have an there is nothing wrong in taking him up on it. You might even be able to do payback with looking after him at some point..... I know that my family constantly uses me as a resource.... ;)
