Has anyone allowed others to move in with them?
I started this thread out of curiosity, and wanting to share my experiences, and have others do the same. I have a friend, lets call her Mary. Mary is a good hearted person, and her and her husband allowed his cousin and her family move in. Mary has a travel trailer on their property, and his cousin was down and out after being kicked out of the previous home they were living in (with another family). The cousins husband did have a job, and agreed to pay a portion of the water and light bill, to live there. As soon as they moved in, the mooching and freeloading began. These people did not pay a dime, and Mary had to feed a whole family of 4 plus her own family of 5. She had to furnish them everything from toilet paper to sanitary pads, they had nothing, bought nothing. They were there 3 months, running the a/c with the door open, wasting water, etc. They then began begrudging Mary and her family anything they had or bought, got mad when the ice cream man came, and they didn't buy ice cream for her kids as well, even tho' they were gone at the time. The last straw came, when Mary's husband got a bonus at work, and Mary bought herself $200 worth of clothes. The woman became enraged, screamed that how dare her buy new clothes when their kids were starving and they had no propane!!! Just be warned, that nothing good usually comes from taking in people like this, the more you do for someone, the more they expect. And if someone has already been kicked out of someone else's home, it is most likely because there was a **** good reason. The people packed up and moved out after the fight over Mary buying new clothes, good riddance to bad rubbish!!!
