It makes me sad that people won't help themselves, even with plenty of notice.
My SIL made major life plans two years ago and gave her cousin, who lived with her, notice. Every six months, SIL would update the time line and remind her cousin. One year out, SIL told cousin to stop paying rent, save that money so she could move with her minor daughter.
SIL had the one month chat, to find out that cousin did not save any money. Had only enough to pay a deposit and first months rent on a very small apartment and could not take her cat with her.
It makes me very sad that cousin was not proactive, and that she and her daughter are sharing a one bedroom apartment because that is all they could afford, after all the notice and free rent she had. Sigh.
