Not at work, but over the fence from the neighbor:
Next door neighbors are splitting and the wife decided this week to move out of state to live with her new man friend. In one ten minute conversation she told me that:
They are upside down on the house by $100,000, so they are walking away and letting the bank repossess. They are filing for bankruptcy -yay! No kidding, she is euphoric about getting out of house, out of debt, out of her marriage, and out of Maryland.
She is taking dog and moving to another state to live with new man. She is leaving her 25 year old unemployed son in the house until the bank tells him to get out. We are just thrilled since that means that he and his slacker druggie friends can build bonfires in the yard and sit out there smoking reefer and drinking beer EVERY NIGHT.
How long does it take for a bank to repossess and ask you to leave?
LOL Maybe he's actually FIREd!
Hahahahahaha.(Wiping away tears of mirth.) This kid has not held a job for more than 4 or 5 months at a time since he graduated from high school six years ago. He spends most of his time walking up and down the roads in the neighborhood with his girlfriend of the moment, smoking cigarettes and talking on his cell phone. I think he does pick up some money selling weed out of the storage shed behind his parents' house...
He's one of these people who doesn't want to work hard at anything. His MOTHER used to mow the lawn the two or three times a year they mowed it
If I had a 25 year old layabout son, he'd at least be doing all the heavy lifting for me at home. But since his parents are idiotic about money, maybe they didn't know how to teach him to work hard and save his pennies. Whenever he quit another job, his mother always told us, with a straight face, "They didn't treat him right," or "They tried to cheat him," or some such nonsense. Ah... love may be blind, but mother love seems to be blind, deaf, and stupid in this case.
I tell you one thing, if he does start back up with the all night reefer party/bonfires, I am calling the police EVERY time. I'm sick of having this trash live next door. They are completely trifling.
And another thing, if y'all want to argue about crossing the US / Canadian border, start your own damn thread. This is where we complain about stupid things we hear about money.
Edited to fix spelling.
