I'm a sucker for a sob story, and usually am considered waaaaay too friendly, and generous to folks! And most people take this as I'm easy or a push over...until they cross me..
! Then they wonder where the ****** came from. It's kind of funny sometimes to see the look of shock on their faces! But for the most part...I'm usually the one who gets screwed in the end!
I have taken in numerous people ..especially women with children into my home...only to be sorry, and left with hurt feelings, and large phone bills, etc.
Almost got throwned out of an apt. once when I had more people in the house then the lease allowed! I told the manager when the school of the child staying with me called, and informed them of this, that I would have done it again. I had told this mom not to use my address when she enrolled the child...because I was afraid of this happening. Long story short...female had no where to stay...husband emptied the bank account, and she and her child were put on the street, by the sheriff when they couldn't afford the rent. I had known her less than a couple of months, and moved them into my apartment. Nearest family member several states away! After leaving and denying ever making any long distance phone calls...get a big bill. I won't even go into all the other stuff that happened!
Moved another battered wife in, only to be screwed in the end! Lend money...and my car...only to regret it!
One female moved in, and I came home to bodies lying around on the floor and everywhere, after she had a party...while I was at work...and my children crying because they didn't get any sleep!
And another...... caught her doing drugs with her cousin, after leaving work early! Funny thing is I never charged them a dime to live with us, and gave them money...to help them get on their feet! And believe me I still didn't learn my lesson, as I just got kicked in the butt for doing the same thing last year!! Another female with no place to go..
I have good instincts about things...but give me a sob story...and I'm totally lose them..:chuckle! I guess the only people I haven't moved in are men...:chuckle Maybe I'm doing something wrong here
