Feels Like a Monday

This is me being an unhappy camper. I was having a fantastic day yesterday until a certain bill arrived in the mail. It’s the sewer bill for the Vermont house. It comes to us but our renters are supposed to pay it according to their lease. I should also be more specific and say the bill is a “Collectors Delinquent Notice”. Turns out that the sewer bill hasn’t been paid in five months. I know it’s hard to believe that a mother with a good job could be so freaking irresponsible and STUPID. Wanna see for yourselves?

Can you figure out the total amount due? Don’t worry. I’ll tell ya. It’s $698.43. How in the WORLD can people be so freaking…I don’t even have a word for it. What’s worse is that I’m a complete and total idiot where this whole situation is concerned. I’m too freaking nice. Wanna pay your rent late? SURE go right ahead and stick it up my butt. Wanna burn the house to the ground? SURE, just send my some nice photos. I like a good fire. Wth.

I told the Mister that I am going to send her an e-mail because I’m done being Mrs. Nice Guy and he told me to be firm and professional. I don’t believe I’m in the right frame of mind to be professional and my firmness might smash her face into the ground. If I were to call, it would get ugly. She’s been renting from us for 21 months and out of those 21 months, I think maybe THREE of them didn’t give me high blood pressure. I’m having a hard time seeing why I have to be nice.

Maybe I should just stop paying the mortgage. We could join the ranks of those who have had their house foreclosed on this year. We certainly wouldn’t be lacking for company.

I need an objective person to write her for me, lol.


  1. OMG! That is ridiculous. How much longer is her lease?

  2. Legally, she's on a month to month. She should be on a 12 month lease but she never sent me back a signed copy of her lease. Again, legally, all I have to do is give her a 60 day notice to vacate, BUT, a Vermont judge won't evict in the winter and once we go past that 60 days, she no longer has to pay rent which means she would get to live in my house rent free for the winter and Vermont winters are long. As far as I can tell, I don't have a good option here.

  3. Oh man...such grounds to go up there and kick her butt.

  4. Pam~~If I could figure out something to do with my kids, I would be up for a road trip, lol.


I love comments. Leave me one. Now.
