    So I was talking to my cousin last night and she's a single parent of two who lives near her parents and her brother and his gf and kid. Her brother is the baby of the family so is naturally 'Momma's boy', but he and his gf are quite lazy. I have never understood how people make it month to month without having a job or taking the initiative to earn money, but alas, they do. My single cousin gets the same amount of foodstamps for her family as does her brother for his but she always seems to have enough food whereas he never does. She's single with a baby and a teenage whereas her brother has a gf that can help out with their single kid.

    So anyway, she was telling me how her mom wanted her to help her brother out by giving his gf some work to do and therefor, some money for doing it. Simple enough, right?

    The work my cousin does indeed can be considered easy because it's just making sure the tenants in the apartment complex are taken care of and dealing with phones/paperwork and the like. So sure, if someone wants to make easy money doing basically fluff work, it's a great job for them; of course, there is more actual work to it than just that, but this is the perception of the nature of her job.

    So my cousin offers her brother's gf a job: babysit the baby while I do my job, and I'll pay you.

    Her brother's gf declined. She didn't want to babysit. She wanted to do my cousin's work. But my cousin didn't need her help there, she needed her help with babysitting.

    So her brother's gf (who btw desperately needs money so she can see her other daughter at her baby's daddy's place to make it look like she's actually a part of her daughter's life to the courts so they won't take away her visitation rights) is 'depressed' and still jobless and my aunt has taken to criticizing my cousin for not helping out.

    But not wanting to do something and being just plain lazy is different. You can be choosy if you have choices to choose from, but if you have no other offers being thrown at you, and you need to make the money for your kids, why would you turn down money (and not like babysitting is all that hard or requires a huge skill set--I know: 16yr old chick in the burbs= mega babysitter back in the day) especially cold hard cash if for nothing other than being lazy?

    From what I can see, it's nothing more than a case of laziness in my opinion and I don't think you can help someone who is just plain lazy. But I'd like to know: is there a cure for lazy? How do you help someone not become lazy or get out of laziness? (btw you can just look at this chick and see 'lazy' written all over her)

    Bet if I found a cure for lazy it'd sell like hotcakes....or maybe people would be too lazy to read it...idk....o_O
