Now how do I begin this, I'm annoyed, surprise. Yes I know it's not in an angry dome thread but it's because I want actual discussion and some perspective.
As of late my sister has been retarded, as usual. But I feel as though I'm the one being the short end of the stick on all this. My sister is a senior in highschool and work's as a hostest, so she's not making ridiculous money, shes got a handidown car from my grandma, parents paid for all the retitling, and all the fees associated with it, including a new battery. They also pay for her gas, and even with a job she likes to beg for money to most likely, fund her party needs or stupid hipster shampoo or lotions.
Me on the other hand, bought my own car, pay for all my insurances, and $500 for rent. I make a bigger chunk of change than her, with all the taxes, retirement, bills, and etc I'm left, at a monthly $600 budget, where I try to balance it with a $300 credit card. I buy my own food (besides meals for dinner as of late) The thing is, I'm trying to save this money, and it's really hard. Granted I have a few grand saved up for my vacation in July (which is more of engagement plan than a luxury), but I'm just frustrated. I don't mind paying rent, but it bothers me when my sisters will be paid for, even when she turns 18, because of her position, a future poor college student struggling on some director ambition. Which will majorily be covered by the trusts my parents set up for both of us.
So with all this considered, I'm thinking about asking him to stop charging me rent, not because I can't necessarily afford it, but so I can accelerate my savings. I guess I'm iffy about this suggestion because I don't want to come across, ungrateful, but proportionally I feel like they are encouraging her to save all of her money, which big junks go towards weed and alcohol, I'm sure, but hemorrhaging me because I make a decent paycheck. It be different if she cleaned or did something, but that's something I have to do additionally.
I guess I'm torn if this is just a bad idea because I understand their point of view, she doesn't make a lot, so it isn't worth it, but they put no fiscal responsibility on her in comparison of me trying to be as independent as possible. As of right now moving out is not a possibility, it's my goal but again, not a possibility.
So what you think? I'm an ungrateful prick or I should attempt negotiation
where I'll most likely be verbally destroyed?
EDIT: Additionally, the reason this suddenly started bothering me now is my sister already got a traffic ticket of about $200 for dangerous driving. I forgot the exact wording. My dad decided to challenge it, because, well, it was in a parking lot with like 8 speed bumps all with like 25-45 feet imbetween, so it's pretty..hard to do so.
She didn't have to pay for the ticket(well, assuming it goes well) or the $400 legal expenses, my dad threatens "birthday present) as it's this upcoming month, but I know he'll end up getting her something.
