SF....I have to agree that it's a little of the father issue and a lot of Antonia's irresponsibility...and let's not forget to throw in the parent who was present thruout her life and should have taught this young lady financial responsibilities...."dear old mom".
Antonia set the precedent concerning her father when she displayed the "dollar bill" from day one and expressed that her father started her off with the desire for "material things"....this came out of her mouth and should be addressed because she I-S using this as an excuse of sort for her craving for the finer things in life, however, her father isn't the sole blame here because she had a mother and grand mother ( which is all that some people have and they manage to become responsible) who S-P-O-I-L-E-D her rotten. Her sense of entitlement was obviously encouraged or they were too inept to deal with her tantrums to the point of allowing her to believe that she is entitled to do as she pleases. I don't care how many parents were present during her early years, she should have been taught the value of a dollar and allowed to work for what she wants before she was turned loose on society. There definitely is alot of room for blame here...primarily, Antonia for lacking will power to control her spending.
I do believe the father issue would be a wise thing to explore because of Antonia's efforts to put blame on him and also because she's soooo resistant to it...which speaks volumes about there being some underlying current of a larger issue than what she has revealed so far.
Ultimately, Antonia has to step up and pay the piper and she needs to handle whatever the issues are while she's offered an avenue to do so...if she doesn't she's subject to repeat the same pattern in the future.
Obviously, she's beyond the age of spankings, but (IMO) she could use a good a$$ whipping...she's so disrespectful to people who are trying to help her after she came to them asking for help....I don't find her amusing at all ...I think it's ridiculous that she's reach the age that she is and is no more concerned about her own future than she is and considers everything a big joke...well, Antonia, the last laugh may be on you.
MizJazmine, DeltaDarkStar and Zoey...I agree with your assessment as well...Antonia is responsible for her actions and must clean up her own mess thru whatever means are necessary and if it must be hammered into her, then so be it.
