May Have Made a Financial Mistake

November 28th, 2004 at 06:40 pm

My oldest brother is a bit of a financial holocaust- to borrow a term my girlfriends use. Last year he had to claim bankruptcy due to delinquent business taxes and numerous other financial errors. During the bankruptcy process he is only to make a certain amount of money which is easily handled by my parents since he works for them. They have been saving the remainder of his total earnings to give to him once the bankruptcy payback period is over. This means that he will be getting a some figure int he thousands of dollars in January.
So, my brother was over this weekend tiling my front entrance. He asked me to build him a computer to give to his family as a Christmas gift. I priced out components and spoke with him about it. Then I ordered the components on my Visa. Yup, the same Visa I'm suposed to be paying off tomorrow.
I have to admit that I am a little concerned that he won't have the money to pay me back. He has numerous debts floating around out there including a few with family members. I know he is thinking that he'll pay me back with the money that my parents have been holding for him, but I think that money is already either spent or promised to others well past the sum of the money he will be receiving. *sigh* I guess there's no use in worrying about it now. I'll just have to hope for the best and if nothing else, kiss that money goodbye. Ugh $1000 down the tubes.
