The Shack Behind Me

I wrote back in April about the foreclosed house behind my house.

We have gotten the city to put that house on it's grass cutting list, it gets cut once a month at a charge of $500/cut.

We put some blech in the pool, didn't help. We are inidated with Mosquito's already this year.

The Cops finally got the house all locked up, we haven't noticed any human visitors to the house in about a month.

Mr Weenie boarded up a broken basement window so no furry criters become residents.

Chase finally called me back about the house, long long story short. They have no legal rights to the house until the redemption period (the time in which the home owner can buy back the house, which in Michigan is a freaking year) is done. So Chase will not (ie cannot) touch the house until April 2009.

And just a couple weeks ago, the *&$#% "former" owner showed up looking for stuff she left in the house.

Her divorce was final last summer.

She was sporting a HUGE rock on her left hand (found another sugardaddy).

And when asked why she isn't moving back into her house, since she obviously can afford it now with the new sugardaddy, her response was it has to much damage to it.

Damage that her juvinile deliquents precious angles did.

And anyway, her new sugardaddy is building her a 4000 sq ft house in "insert rich city here". (her "former" house is only 2800 sqft).

With her it was always about materialistic things.

She also claims that her juvinile deliquent precious angle is now a straight A student (he was on the verge of failing out when they left). The same "straight A student" that comes weekly to sit in a car with his friends in their "former" driveway and smoke dope. He is probably sitting in a juvey center somewhere (we haven't seen them in about a month now, ever since someone (not us for once) called the police and they brought police dogs with them).

So we are stuck looking at a run down shack, with grass that gets cut once a month and a green mosquito producing pool that the bank won't touch until next spring.

Yea for us.

FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS to cut the grass? Holy moly. The city's cleaning up, eh?

Do you have a homeowner's association or nice neighbors who would pitch in to help keep the pool up so the skeeters don't haul you all off?
Monthly pool maintenance is... well, it used to be 30 but I'm sure it's a lot more now... why can't the city pay that?

Seriously, sneak over in the night and dump a crap load of chemicals into the pool and just kill off everything. I'd recommend gas, but then you run the risk of a fire.
