Helping our and signs of the times

Thanks to my cousin Irene for the following:

My niece just called and asked if I would loan her $300.00 to help her pay her rent. Those who know me, know that I'm always willing to help out friends and family. I told her to give me some time to think about it and I would call her back. Before I called her back, her Mom called and told me that my niece was lying and not giving her the money would be a mistake. She goes on to say that the real reason she wanted the $300.00 was to get her boyfriend out of jail so she could be under the same roof as him for his birthday.

I thought about it for a minute and decided to give her the $300.00 because we all need help at times. So, I called and told her to come and get the money. A couple of hours later, I get a call from the Tarrant County Jail. It was my niece crying, screaming and asking why I gave her counterfeit money. My response...so you and your boyfriend could be under the same roof for his birthday!
