Instead, we had to clean out pabsungenis's mother's yard (or the city would be doing themselves and putting a lene (sp?) on the house (which is also at the time facing foreclosure 'cause his mother is behind on her mortgage payments).
Well, part of what we had to clean out:
His mother recently sold the house on the other side of her house to a new family. They apparently decided that instead of letting us know what was up and allowing us to clean out the attic ourselves, they would just dump the contents of the attic onto the lawn and put it all under a tarp.
We'd seen this tarp, but I guess it just didn't register with us. We'd assumed for the longest time that it was just firewood that Linda (the mother) had Alby (her husband) chop.
Backstory: - when we first moved out of that house and over to the other side of his mother's house, we'd been using that house for storage. When she first got a tenant to move in, she'd first cleaned out the house and put stuff into storage into a trailer in her backyard. All that was supposedly left in the attic was her belongings and some of her grandmother's (the evil Nazi racist grandmother who haunted the house and whose possessions are NOT coming to us EVER).
We'd rented this BIG dumpster to clean out our basement and also to clear this crap from under the tarp. Imagine our surprise when we fill most of the dumpster just from the crap from Linda's back yard (including the bathtub she'd had ripped out of her bathroom and other random crap)...when we discover that amongst the stuff under that tarp included OUR stuff which we thought had been put into storage at least five years before.
Most of the stuff that had been in that house were either already in our house or in our OWN storage unit across town.
Well, apparently except for old books of mine (including my Junior High yearbooks) which are now totally destroyed (since they've been left outside to get rained on and get riddled with mold/mildew and bugs. Old photos, the paintings that had been in my living room when I was growing up...all kinds of stuff like that.
...all of it down the drain.
Color me pissed at his mother.
Then, not only does she owe us the money for our dumpster rental (about $500+), we get the second deposit/down payment for the sale of our house ($9.,000) and find out that we have to give BACK $4,000 since Linda owed $13,000 on her mortgage. (her $9,000 check + $4,000 of our money). When the sale for these houses is finalized, you can bet your ass that we'll be getting $4500 more and she'll be getting $4500 less on that day! I'm not letting her steal our money.
