My sister-in-law is the POA . My 96 year old father-in-law still lives in his home. She gives my husband 100.00 weekly to buy her dad food. We live closer. We usually go through the money 6-7 days since my FIL is fussy so it’s mostly takeout. We tell SIL that the money is finished but it takes her and her husband 4/5 days into the next week to produce more money despite my husband's reminders.
I don’t want to be involved but it’s cutting into our funds. We’re asking that she pay every Saturday so this doesn’t happen.
Of course, I’m the mean one to constantly have to bring this up while my sister-in-law sits home doing nothing.
My sister in-law never worked and her husband is retired. My husband works full time.
If they don’t follow this schedule then I have to get involved since my husband backs off from arguments with his sister.
Am I wrong to insist in this schedule?
I don’t think I am. My husband isn't seeing or realizing that his sister could do more.
Of course he feels bad for his dad.
