Sorry you are having a bad day. I didn’t read any of the previous situations that you had with your mom but it seems stressful. Is there a bus she can take until she gets the car situation straightened out herself? Can she borrow your brothers car since she said all he does is play video games etc. Maybe just say you need to close the account because you are married now and want a joint account with him and not your mom?

Sorry about the nosebleed too, it’s so dry in my office/house I’ve had one too.

Does she have access to the internet? She can easily open up a checking account and sign up for direct deposit. If she’s taken money before without asking you, I wouldn’t give her access to your account.

I second what moderndaisy said about not giving her access to your account. That seems like just a terrible idea all around, seeing that you’d still be responsible for anything that may happen. If you’re inclined to give her the money, maybe do a cashier’s check or money order… something that is prepaid and just needs to be cashed.

It doesn’t sound like she’s asking you for money but just to help her out with logistics.  I’m sure it can be and is frustrating but I think that’s just the sort of thing you do for family, you help them search for lost rings, and if they need you to pass through some of their money for some reason you do that because it only costs you some time and effort.
