My in-laws are driving me crazy thread.
Oh come on, I can't be the only one. I was blogging for a while but kinda gave that up so I thought I would post bits in here. Just a place to vent.

I joined the military at 18. I worked, saved and invested. Uncle Sam used me, broke me and now pays me. I took my money and bought some rental properties for extra income. Now I have my retirement, my disability, my old fugger retirement job and the rental income. I guess to a 29 year old high school drop out whose longest job has been the Army Guard I'm someone to try and sponge off of.

One of my 2 bedroom apartments is empty. I'm slowly remolding it and am down to the bathroom. The guy that owned/built it was a moron and I have to replace sheetrock with greenboard, the shower surround and some other stuff. My deadbeat brother-in-law has moved in until he goes to Afghanistan (now that he is off probation) and has informed me that I need to completely guy the bathroom and replace everything because he suspects black mold and has given me several suggestions as to what type of replacement items I need. Seems a new tub is needed as the one that is in it could be contaminated.

Now black mold is a PITA but you can get rid of it. I showed him the effected areas and how I removes all affected sheetrock then removed to the next stud to ensure the area was clear. I used tea tree oil and a sprayer and the entire area was cleaned 3 times with a 1 week window in between. He pointed out an area by the exposed faucet and said "Look, black mold". I said "No, scorched wood from a MAPP gas torch. He got all bent out of shape because he worked construction (for 3 days) and he knows what the fruck he is talking about. I said "Fine. get out of my apartment". He walked off mumbling under his breath.

The next morning the mother-in-law called. Just a friendly chat with the wife about how her son is getting sick and it must be something in the apartment. She went on about how it will be hard to rent if we don't fix it right. I said it will be hard to rent because we won't be able to get her loser son out when he wiggles out of his Afghanistan orders.

Now somehow I'm the bad guy.

Because my wife and I were trying to move out of my monster in law's house so fast, the only place we could find was a few houses away from her. Not too bad since we weren't actually living there. Ha. She comes over almost daily to bitch about something and it drives me nuts. She'll sit there and talk **** about me when I'm not around, but as soon as I'm around, she shuts up. She won't say anything to me if she has an issue and that pisses me off more than almost anything.

My in-laws caused trouble even when they were 1,000 miles away.

I just got back from buying the new shower surround for the bathroom. The wife had asked her brother if he would be home so we could drop it off. He said he would so we started the 30 min drive back. Got into town and of course he isn't there. He had better things to do than wait around all day on us. He said we can come back into town later. I said sure, around Thursday. Enjoy another week of sponge baths azzhat.

So I loaded the truck with 2 sets of mattresses, frames, sink base, microwave and the shower surround. Drove into town looking like the Clampetts and pulled into the parking lot. There was Deadbeat working on the Durango I bought him. He turns and walks up to the wife who then asked what was wrong with his vehicle. "Its been overheating." "I think I may need a new ride." My face is now redder than my truck. I start dumping the stuff inside the apartment and baggy pants finally comes over to help. The wife asks him why he isn't running the A/C (he should, I'm friggin paying for it) and he says it blows the mold throughout the apartment. I look at the bathroom door and he has plastic duck taped over the bathroom door. I told him there wasn't a return in the bathroom. He said it was pushing the air through the plastic. I stood there staring at him for a second then said "Close the GD bathroom vent then". As I look around I see his big screen LCD sitting on top of cases of my vinyl flooring and full ashtrays everywhere. I turn and leave while the wife converses with her brother for a bit.

I guess I came across a bit rude. The wife asked what was wrong. I said "I shall list them in order of least pissing me off to most".

10: I spent 2 days helping a total stranger move her recently deceased mothers household good from her mothers home to the donation center. For this I received a basic 2 bedroom apartment starter kit that the lady was kind enough to give to your brother. She said she was happy to give it to someone that is in need and grateful for the help. I had to lie to the lady and say your brother was grateful for the stuff.

9:I had to load all that crap into my truck

8: I had to drive through town looking like an idiot to get it to him

7: He's hinting around that he needs a new car yet hasn't paid for the POS he picked out and I paid for.

6: The apartment was just cleaned and painted. Now it reeks of cigarets.

5: He used duck tape on the fresh paint. FUGGIN' DUCK TAPE.

4: I will have to move all this crap back out and pay for disposal when he moves out.

3: He's never moving out.

2: I hate him

1: If the bathroom is blocked off where does he pee?
