1. Someone (not a real friend, just someone who sent you a friend request at random that you accepted) leaves a comment on your MySpace with one of those glittery things. You hate those damn glittery things with a passion. Do you delete the comment?

2. My parents owe me somewhere in the neighborhood of $500. They recently switched from cable to satellite, which cost about $100 (dish, receivers, setup...).  We don't need satellite (hell, we don't need cable for that matter, but I digress). Now Mom's considering getting a new car. After past careless investments I've asked Mom how we can afford this stuff and when I'm going to get paid back (I've got bills, too!). She just tells me money is tight and that I need to get a job. Then my stepdad gets all family man and says, "This is a family. We're supposed to support one another" and all, and I really do feel guilty for asking to be repaid. I mean, I do eat the food and use the utilities, too. But I can't help but feel I'm being pretty ripped off.
So should I keep coughing up money when bills roll around or put my foot down next time they take a random drive (burning gas) or buy an extra case of soda?
Edit: This is all money they've asked for with a promise to pay me back. I have no problem helping contribute my fair share, but when I hear, "Hey, can we have $50? We'll pay you back Friday" and come Friday (after Friday after Friday) I'm still $50 short, I get frustrated.
