Family is the first to screw you. In general: People are either too serious about money or not enough, and that is compounded more if the person is a family member... Oh, how can you evict your brother (or other family relative like dear old mom) and I would say Duh, because they are not contributing towards the maintence of the home. It's one thing to maintain a house, and an other to support a whole crop of people moochen.
Good for you.
: : Just in case anyone is still reading this, my brother-in-law, who was suing me for "unpaid rent" decided not to bother showing up in small claims court, so the case has been dismissed. I guess he figured that since he had no proof that I owed him anything, and I had proof that I did not, he would only look like an idiot if he appeared.
: : Anyway, he only did it to harrass me, he knew all along that he would lose if he appeared.
: : : Let me clarify this situation. I didn't want to air dirty laundry, but I suppose I must.
: : : These are the people who harrassed me out of my house, backstabbed me over
: : : the house, went into my house and stole items from me
: : : including crystal and china, then forged their
: : : signature to documents. If they had not done those
: : : things to me, then I would not be in this situation in
: : : the first place. Also, I always paid market rent, I
: : : had no favors given to me. Their "generosity"
: : : consisted of a 79% rental increase when they felt like
: : : it, as well as taking money from me that was supposed
: : : to be used for a family fund to finance gatherings.
: : : They may have used my money for that, but conveniently
: : : forgot to invite me to those same gatherings that I
: : : had paid for. At the very least, I should get that
: : : money back. Also, before I left my house that they
: : : harrassed and backstabbed me out of, some of my china
: : : was missing, I thought that it may have been broken.
: : : What a surprise it was to me the following Christmas
: : : to see the same china show up on their son's table!
: : : The stole my grandfather's pocket watch, a collectors
: : : item that he personally gave to me. They took my
: : : father's Army medals off the wall and walked off with
: : : them claiming that their son should have them. The
: : : next time I saw the medals, they were tossed in the
: : : corner of a close and virtually forgotten. There is
: : : also some question as to how a few minutes after my
: : : sister left my mother's hospital room, (she was in
: : : there alone) my mother's was dead. I was at work at
: : : the time, my mother died at 1:00 pm, and my sister
: : : called me at home at 7:00pm that night, with the most
: : : cheerful voice I have ever heard, announcing the news.
: : : Once my mother was dead, my sister started the
: : : harrassment over the house, the china, the furniture
: : : and my father's Army medals. I owne te hose at that
: : : point, but she cleaned me out of all the furniture,
: : : claiming that I didn't own that. So, I was left in an
: : : empty house, with the furniture taken so she could
: : : sell it and keep the money, all the fine china taken
: : : so she could sell it and keep the money (which she
: : : did). Now to the backstabbing. She kept pretending
: : : to be on my side about the house warning me against
: : : the other sister. I found out from her later when she
: : : was drunk that she actually was going to the lawyer
: : : herself and using that story to get information from
: : : me.
: : : Now, the last little thing. She took one of my rental
: : : money orders, forged her husband's signature to it,
: : : cashed it and told him that I never paid the rent. I
: : : had to go to the Post Office to put a tracer on that
: : : money order to prove that it had been received,
: : : endorsed and cashed. Also, when he received my rent
: : : for Feb. 2000, he marked it "paid" on his running
: : : total, then added it back in to March and kept
: : : claiming that I owed him for two months when I
: : : actually owed him for one. When I pointed out this
: : : "mistake" he claimed that he just could not understand
: : : what I was saying.
: : : This is the money that he wants to sue me for. And
: : : you have the nerve to call me selfish?
