BSM and I each have a compulsive shopper in our families who always seems to have a problem with cash flow. (You know it's out of hand when they prevent the house from being foreclosed on by making one massive return to Walmart for the cash) Offers to help have to be weighed carefully.

Recently he offered to lay new tile for a relative so they wouldn't have to pay someone to do it. (they turned him down, opting to stick with bare cement floors) but called him the same week to ask for cash for an unspecified reason. We turned them down.

The oddest request for help?

Probably when some guy with a British accent, an untailored suit and very expensive shoes came up to me at a bus stop while I was in college and asked me where he could find "nice girl" hookers. I pointed to a display rack for the local alternative newspaper across the street and told him to check the ads in the back. He thanked me and walked away.
