How do we deal with loved ones who are financially retarded?
>known this guy since our freshman year of hs
>one of the closest friends ever
>has the money sense of a Katrina coon that just got his fema check
>gives literally no fuck about debt
>I've seen the man get his card declined a hand full of times at the dollar store
>find out about 2 years ago he's 3 grand in credit card debt
>confront him
>the motherfucker was using it to pay rent so he has more fucking money for Legos
>I feel like me being an accounting major and his friend I'm liable as well
>offer numerous times to help him and his fiancé (also financially retarded) make a budget and hopefully start chipping away at this debt
>turns me down every time
I know he's only going to come around, hopefully, after he hits rock bottom. But shit nigga. I think I'm going to try to persuade him and his girl to get a joint bank account to sink the ship faster. It just hurts to see your friend openly and shamelessly stoop so low and all you can say is 'at least I tried'.

Anyone have similar experiences?

You don't.

Let reality do its job.

The only thing you offer is advice and only offer it once

We live in the era of free information. No excuse for being ignorant, especially with something as simple as personal finance.

This honestly. Let natural selection run its course. This day and age and you still get in debt? They deserve everything that happens and it's not on you.

my mother is pretty bad. she spent every dime in her life she ever had and some we didn't had. i tried to press her on the importance of savings. the importance of being ready for the unexpected. and the importance of investment rather than debt.

she just don't get it. she is like "why do i work if i can't spend my money i earn?"
