I have two current problems with money! My Grandma seems to constantly have large amounts of money in her purse. I estimated last time she had over £200 as she was taking me out for a pub lunch! We presume that she harrasses my Grandad to get it out for her, and if he refuses she becomes fixated on it and makes his life h**l until he agrees. She must feel she needs this much as she can no longer use her debit card or write a cheque. Not only is she in danger of being mugged (as she will quite often get this money out in the street in shops etc) but she may be being conned. Also, she has always been very generous with us (her grandchildren) but now it is getting out of hand. She hands out money for taking her on the shortest car journey (as petrol money) - she can easily give £40 for a 5 mile journey. She doesn't only give it to grandchildren, but also to our parents. We now try (especially parents) to sneak it back to my grandad, but it upsets my mum, as she wonders if in moments of clarity my grandma realises how much money she is giving out and how greedy we all must seem. Any attempts to refuse money are met with arguments and can really put her in a bad mood. Obviously the most important problem is how to stop her wandering around with large quantities of cash. She will accuse my Grandad of all sorts if he refuses to get it out for her - does anyone have any reasonable excuses we could use?
