The saga with the bad renter neighbors continues! I have a feeling that we’re stuck with them for a few more months, although I’m hoping that they’ll mess up and not pay their rent again this month and end up getting kicked out.
Yeah, I wish!
On Thursday night we had the pleasure of watching them break into their cable box. I guess their cable and or their internet must be cut off. Hey … they were stealing our internet bandwidth in November and that hinted that they’d been cut off. So now they’ve attached a cable wire to the cable box and ran it along the side of the house and directly into the dining room window, like wise, they added another wire and ran that through a basement window.
I’d guess that the house is freezing, but they’ve had most of their windows open to some degree since they moved in in mid September (bet they aren’t going to pay the heating bill either!) so the introduction of cable wires through the windows won’t make them any colder.
I’m just hoping they’ll get caught! I want to tell the cable company myself, but my husband doesn’t want me to. He just wants us to stay away from these terrible people as we don’t know what they’ll do if we tick them off. Yes, they are THAT scary.
They’ve pretty much already ruined our Christmas as we don’t want to leave the house empty as we’re fairly sure they’ll break in, so I might stay home while Chris goes to his parents for Christmas dinner. Nice eh?
The strange thing is that I think they don’t think we notice these odd things they do … like prying open a cable box at night in the freezing cold under the glow of our security light no less. The guy is always lying to us about things … like he says he’s working (nice job since he’s home all the time or at the drug dealer down the street!). Oh and he told us that they were out looking at new homes, that they’re thinking of buying one of those manufactured home yet their young daughter told us they were too poor to even eat salad?
Anyway … as you can see, these people get to me and the home owners are no help. When we called them last week over the parking problem they didn’t want to hear anything we had to say. So we’re just waiting to see how much damage the renters do to the house and how much debt they leave the home owners when they run out on them. Karma sucks – at least it will for them!
