We’re no closer to having a place to move to. Hubs has gotten a new job, so at least we have some progress going on. He’s lucky to have snagged a full-time job, it’s just very physical and he’s not getting any younger so I worry about him. During his first full week at work my mother-in-law and I went to view a home. There was a tree hanging over the mountain about to land on the home, the layout was a nightmare, it didn’t have a bathtub, and the dehumidifiers running throughout the home were just a part of why it was a solid no. I came home feeling so dejected. Depression and anxiety are definitely ramping up.
Word got back to me that the lady who bought our home said that she was told the land was offered to us at, and I quote, “a great deal.” I knew either the lady who sold the land was lying, or the one who bought it was. We decided to check with the chick who sold it. She had said in the past that she was tired of the hassle of this land, which I also addressed in my message to her. The only hassle she had from us was cashing a check every month. She was completely hands off with everything. Maintaining the land was completely on us. I wasn’t accusatory or out of line, just asked if she had said what we had heard and stated that everything is a nightmare. She messaged back with, “It’s easy to type shit, call me.” Stupid me called her, expecting some sort of discussion. She just tore into me.
She let me know that she’s pissed that my mother-in-law didn’t buy the land years ago when it was offered for way more than what it’s worth. She tried saying that my husband turned down an offer to have the land for free. “Put him on the phone.” I put it on speaker phone. By that point she had already told me that I’m a whore, that my whole family is trash, and laughed because we sold our trailer for nothing. I lost my temper and cussed her out. She seemed triggered when I called her a cunt, acting like I was completely out of line when she had already said I was a whore and called us trash. Yeah.
My husband began doubting himself after I hung up on her. “Did I misunderstand something?” I was there when he called her when she started saying she would deed the land to the county if no one would take it. It was directly after the storm, and we only had internet to view her post on facebook because we were on a generator. We believed she was trying to sell it. She said nothing to him about being willing to give it to him. He was telling her he was worried that we would be kicked out of our home if someone bought the land. She didn’t say, “Oh you misunderstand, I’m giving it away.” She didn’t say, “You can have it.” She fed him some bullshit about getting rid of the other property and keeping this one.
It seems she gave the land away. She thinks it’s hilarious that we had to sell our home. She’s telling people he refused the land. How ridiculous is that? On top of that, if she was wanting to give it to him why didn’t she just offer it to him instead of posting on facebook? He even spoke to her, there was no mention of it. The chances of us even seeing the post before she found someone else who would take the land was low. This woman -tried- to hurt us, succeeded, and thinks it’s the greatest thing ever. How are people so cruel? We never did anything to this woman. I’ve only ever even spoken to her once, years ago, and it was idle chit chat about headaches. She called my kids trash. I’ve never understood how someone can purposely hurt someone else, but especially holding animosity toward a family and trying to hurt them when they’ve done nothing to you?
