I have a thing with getting the crappiest neighbors on the planet. From the guy who got so drunk/stoned he either passed out and forgot the bathtub was running and woke me up with a water pouring on my head, to the guy who hit my brothers antique car because we parked in "his" space in a public lot. My current neighbors though are fast approaching my limits of patience.
They moved from Florida sometime around last August. There are two males and a female. The younger male and the female are married and the older male is his father. They have two children, a two year old, and a six month old. When they first moved in we did the typical "hello nice to meet you" crap. Told them if they needed anything just ask yada yada yada. That was a mistake. After the first week the wife came over and asked to borrow $20. We said sure not a problem since the husband wasn't going to get his first paycheck for a week or two. We know how hard it is to go without a paycheck and we could afford to help out. As soon as he got his first paycheck they repaid the money and all was right in the world. It wasn't a month later and I saw him walking around outside with a brace on his hand. He said he'd hurt himself at work and had to wear it. Alright people get hurt not a problem. Wellllll come to find out that wasn't the truth. My best friend works where he did on the same shift. I come to find out he'd hurt himself at home and then faked the injury at work and somehow they found out about it. He was promptly fired. That was SEVEN months ago. SEVEN MONTHS. SEVEN ****ING MONTHS
Three able bodied adults living in a house and not one of them has held a job in seven months. How in the **** does that work? I'm not fond of my job, but I would feel like a complete loser if I didn't have some kind of money coming into the house. I mean I was unemployed for awhile, but I got unemployment during that time, and I had some stuff coming in on the side. I was still providing for my family. I honestly don't understand the mind set that lets a person get up every morning and look at themselves in the mirror while not doing something anything to help their family or not be a leech on society.
I let them use my lawn mower to mow their lawn as long as they put gas in it. Hell I'd let them use it to go mow lawns and make some money if they needed to. They have mowed my lawn twice. The first time my wife gave him $20. That's not a big deal since that's what we paid the guy last year. The second time he mowed the lawn we didn't give him anything. We figured after all he's using OUR mower to mow his lawn some kind of payment is in order, never mind the fact that two weeks in a row we gave them diapers for their baby. We didn't think mowing our lawn for those things was out of the question. Evidently it is. Last night he came over and asked if he could have NOT BORROW HAVE $10. He offered to mow our lawn again but I pointed out that I had already taken care of that, very morning. He said "oh, so like in a week maybe", and I said rather tersly "No I'll get it thanks". I gave him the $10, mainly to get him off my ****ing porch. My wife wanted to know what I had given him, and what he wanted it for. I said cigarettes for all I know or care. Lord knows they always seem to have smokes even when they have to bum diapers from us.
That bring up another reason for my rant. She ****ing smoked while she was pregnant. Anyone who knows me or my wife knows what we went through to have a baby, and then this numb cunt is puffing away while she pregnant. The baby weighed just five pounds when it was born. Jeez I ****ing wonder why. When they first moved in we mentioned how small Boo was when she was born, and she said well our son was blah blah pounds when he was born. Well no ****ing **** lady you probably smoked with him too. Low birth weight is a big deal but there is a huge difference between a baby who was born 10 weeks early and weighs 3lbs 7ozs and a baby you forced to live off your poison blood being born with a low birth weight.
My wife gets a lot of our baby clothes at Childrens Orchard, which is a consignment shop. Our daughter has some pretty nice clothes even if they are used. When they brought their baby home we gave them some of her old outfits. Not a biggy the baby can't help that it's parents are idiots. Well this Saturday she repaid the favor. My mom and dad were over to help me with my vehicle (broken drive shaft thing), and see the grand kid. They live almost 90 miles away so it's not everyday that they get to see her. She comes over and asks if my wife is home I say yeah and let her in. She has some outfits to give us. Hey cool thanks. Then he comes over and my dad and I are under the ass end of my Explorer he asks if his wife is here I tell him yes and the door is open go on in. As soon as he gets inside I guess the two year old tears into Boos toys. My wife is like holy crap take controll of your kids, and my mom is just sitting there like she can't believe them. After about 15 minutes my mom is wondering if they are ever going to jus shut the **** up and leave. Finally they leave and all my mom can say is "what the hell is up with them", and "damn those are some ugly kids". Did I mention my mom can be pretty catty? They wandered over again and the only way we got rid of them is by going out to eat. TAKE A ****ING HINT! My parents drive 90 ****ing miles they don't want to see your retarded unemployed asses. Now leave god damnit!
None of this even goes into the fact that they have built some kind of "fence" on their front porch to keep their dumb child from jumping off. Yes he's dumb. He's two and can't tell the difference between a cat and a dog. My daughter is 15 months and she knows what a ****ing kitty is.
They are losing their van. Who the **** knew you had to have a job, and a paycheck to actually make car payments? Am I supposed to feel sorry for them that they can't make their car payments? Last I checked Burger King, Taco Bell, and Sonic are all hiring. GET A ****ING JOB!
My supervisor said yesterday - "It's like someone grabbed North America at the top, and tipped it so that the sludge all flowed down into Florida". Of course, it was said regarding a different issue, but still seems to hold true in the case of your neighbors.
