    I normally give her a card + $ every year (she prefers $). but this year is bit different, I had to pay off a bunch of crap this month - like student loan, car, etc and am on a tight budget. I cant give her $, so what should I do? I cant tell her I have no extra money to give her because she would kill me - she would know something is up and then we would get into another arguement about my past debts etc (want to avoid that trust me!).

    So, I know this sounds bad but I was thinking that I should maybe just pretend like I forgot her birthday. Because I know she wont accept anything past her birthday since she believes its bad luck. So if she reminds me a day after her birthday that it was her birthday on Monday, and I offered to still give her something - she wouldnt accept...meaning I could get off the hook this one time. I know that sounds real bad, but I dont know what to do.:(

    Borrow some money from your best friend. :dunno:

    I think my idea is a lot better than "forgetting" her birthday.

    "Well Mom, I know I owe you $800, and I don't have the money. I also don't have money for your present, so let's just say I owe you $900 and consider that extra hundred your birthday present. Happy Birthday Mom" -Jakobwithak

    You sound like you're fucked, so I'll give you advice for emergency situations like this.

    1. Dress up nicely, need a shirt or something.
    2. Go near a university
    3. Say you're a student and beg people for bus fare, saying you lost your wallet in class or something and just need $2.75 to get home.
    4. Repeat until funds raised.

    Eh?
    Handmade presents ftw. Make a nice card or something, make a collage out of some pictures you have, something she can put on her desk or windowsill or whatever. A gift is a gift - she should be saying thank you and appreciating the gesture whether she likes what it is or not - if she throws some tantrum because you didn't give her money, she's not very mature.
