Dad declared bankruptcy.
Well, the saga of my 72-year-old father's life-long poor money skills continues with his declaring bankruptcy. I suggested he do so, and for once, he took his daugther's advice. Of course I told him this in August and I mentioned the October 17th spectre. He didn't act until September 22nd, but managed to get filed before October 17th. I had to give him filing money and appraisal money.
Oh, well. I think it's better for him. He's got no money saved, lives on a fixed 30K pension, and had too many credit card bills to handle. He still manages money poorly. I forsee him accepting offers from any new credit cards coming his way.
I wish I could make him learn from his mistakes.
Maybe I'm the one that's supposed to learn from his mistakes.
