I have posted here extensively on the indifference shown by my adult skids, in particular, SS29, to my DS6 with cancer.
SS29 left a message for me asking for me to use a contact of mine at a local university dental school to get free/cheap dental work for Stepgrandson 8. I have done this twice in the past. Once they no showed for the appointment, the 2nd time they showed up with double the dental problems they told me and that I told my friend about. Some of the services were to be free, some at cost and my friend ended up eating the costs. I offered to reimburse him to save my embarassment over these deadbeats but he declined saying I had enough trouble with that kid around!
I haven't called SS29 back but sent the message via DH No Can Do. Of course, SD35 leaves me a message today to try to smooth the waters, offering to pick up any costs this time. The Gall! Fugetaboutit! I guess the BM's in the house will say "don't punish the grandkids." Puhleeze.
