I hate having to borrow money from my parents.  Especially because I know they would put themselves in a financial burdon just to help me out.

My husband is in the military (canadian) and after I gave birth we decided that he would be the one to take parental because the military pays him 55% of his salary and then EI (Unemployment) tops him up to about 93%.  So we would have more income if I was the one working full time and he stayed home for the 6 months.  Well over the summer there was a full month where he didn’t get his EI checks.  That was almost $2000.  We literally did not have the money to make ends meat.  So my parents loaned me the money.  The full $2000.  I told them i would pay them back when Darling Husband got his check in.  But then his truck had to get fixed.  I was able to pay my parents $100 almost on a weekly basis and I am finally going to have them paid in full on Thursday.

But Frick! I am 27 years old and I hate having to go to my parents for money.

Meh, my parents had to borrow from their kids.  They were awful with money.
