We had lived there a few years, when one New Years Eve, one of the grandkids went to a party. She realized that she was too drunk to drive herself home, so she gave her keys to her friend to drive her. Unfortunately, the friend was also too drunk to drive, but didn’t have the sense that the granddaughter had and grandkid was too drunk to realize her friend was too drunk. When I got up New Years morning, the granddaughter’s car was smashed against a tree in one of the neighbor’s yards and his front fence was knocked down where the car had gone through it. Fortunately, the girls were not hurt and had staggered to her house after the wreck.
Yep. He’s being nice letting you stay there and Not paying when you start working again he wants his Money. That said unless you have Savings you probably won’t be able to paying. Hence is the time where you ask him if he’ll except a extra 200–300 a month til the back rent is caught up. A good landlord would be willing to do that. They want a good tenet in their house. It’s completely up to him though be honest because your also going to have a pay your other back bills ( power, water, gas etc ) if you haven’t been paying them either.
Your child has a desk full of unfinished work because you keep her home when she isn’t sick, pull her out early so you can go somewhere, let her come late … how is she supposed to learn anything or finish anything? This is why from August to March she only moved from reading level A to C … in first grade!!! At some point, your child is going to be a functioning adult. He needs the opportunity to struggle with self-care skills in order to master them. At some point, he will need to be able to put on his own jacket and tie his own shoes. No time like the present!
My mother has always had an extremely hard time controlling her anger. Those are the strongest memories I have of my mother. Screaming at me, my sister, or my father over the simplest of things.
On top of this, she is a Jehovah’s Witness, which is a religion I highly disagree with. She believes that she is saved by Jesus and Jehovah. She truly, in her soul, thinks that she is not mentally ill and everyone around her is the sick one. On multiple occasions I have been told that I am Bi-Polar and need to be on lithium. Her behavior is sporadic, unpredictable, and extremely volatile.
Before I go deeper into that here is some back story. I was arrested for selling weed and mushrooms to my friends. I had to plea to felony charges and am serving a 3 year probation. My partner also got arrested because we lived together. We decided to leave our apartment and move in with our mothers respectively. My mom pushed and pushed it. She didn’t want me there. She made it known I was a disgrace to her and her beliefs. My grandmother was the one who cared enough to convince her to let me stay there on a very cheap rent. The hard thing about it is, it can go unseen for months. This last stretch was about 5 months or so. Recently I was beginning to feel as though I was getting into a great groove. Focusing on my health and exercising more, getting my credit in check so I can have more options in life, starting my own business. It was all ripped away.
Everyone like the girl’s dad and the neighbor whose yard was messed up was willing to ignore it. The problem was the car, which was totaled. The dad and his brother managed to get it out of the guy’s yard and dumped it in the vacant lot, which was owned by their dad. They helped fix the fence and all was well with the world. They asked me if I knew anything about the car in the vacant lot across the street. I told them that I believed it belonged to the guy living in that house…and I pointed to the correct house. I did not give them any details about what had happened to the car or how it got there. I think I mentioned that the property was owned by the guy in the house or his family.
