My Complaining Did Help

Mr Weenie just called, he said one of our neighbors just called his cell to say that the bank (Chase) that owns the run-down shack behind us hired a company to come pump the water out of the basement.

The 5 FEET of water in the basement.

They do not have authorization to touch the pool yet, but am hoping it's forth coming soon. I will give them until after vacation, then the calling will start again.

The water pumping people said the electricity will be turned on soon so the sump pump will work. Hopefully a careful inspection is done before they throw the switch as we don't need that house catching fire or blowing up next week while we are on vacation.

The water pumping people also told neighbor man that this is the worst house they have seen (damage wise). Great, not a distinction I wanted.

See, being a bitch does get things done.

I thought of you yesterday when I heard that the cities down here are going to make lending institutions liable for the maintenance of foreclosed homes!

About time! ;)
