Forget it! (No horse trailer project after all…)


Yeah, that's right, forget it.

We're not remodeling the horse trailer after all. Why? Simple really… My great grandmother's oldest son and his side of the family are pitching the biggest fit over it. They're all mad and upset because apparently it's "in perfect condition and doesn't need anything done to it".

Pfft… Yeah. Right.

My mum and stepdad came across my cousin Earl, his older sister, and his girlfriend at Wal-Mart the other day and all three of them were pissed about the trailer. My cousin Sissy was glaring at them and giving them the silent treatment, while Alison (Earl's girlfriend) was acting like she was a member of the family and like we were the ones causing this fight (yeah, like she'll ever be a member of the family… I'm quoting that straight from my great grandmother… apparently she doesn't like Alison very much…). Earl was the worst, though. He was mouthing off about how when we got the trailer all finished, he was going to take it straight to his dad's and rip out everything that we did to it and remodel it to his liking.

Then his dad (my great uncle David) called today and got into a screaming argument with my great grandmother about how the horse trailer is his, not hers (even though her husband was the one who built it and it is her) and it is definitely his business as to what goes on with it and she has no right letting anyone remodel it when "it's in perfectly fine condition".

I talked to my mum about it today and I think we're just going to take the plywood up and use it on my mum's house, instead of finishing the trailer, and take the trailer back to the other side of the pasture and just let them have it.

It's just going to be a fight like this constantly with the trailer… even if we ignored them and finished it, they'll rip everything we did to it out just for spite… that side of the family is just that way… and if we wanted to use the trailer, it would be a huge fight like this has been… so… forget it.

On that note, I'm no longer going to even pet my great uncle's horses. It's a fight over me just touching them too, so forget that. If they get out, it isn't my problem. My great uncle or his son can put them up. I don't care if David is crippled, apparently I don't know how to handle horses anyway in his eyes. He can find a way because I'm through with him. I'm not going to talk to him, visit him, etc…

Sometimes I wish that side of the family would disappear… die… go away permanently… something… just get out of the rest of our life's!

Oh come on, don't tell me you have NEVER just sometimes wished your family could disappear. If you tell me that, you're either a liar or have a bad memory, plain and simple.

I'm sorry the other side of your family is so weird/certifiably blind...I saw the picture of that trailer when you put that thread up.

It's probably best just to go shopping and find a usable sound trailer that will be just your family's with no family strings attached.

Cinder I can absolutely say without a doubt that I have never wished DEATH upon any of my family.

Sure they irk me sometimes and I have wished they would leave me alone. NEVER have I even considered writing anything like

Very disturbing to me.

I think she was exaggerating...just frustrated. You know? Have a bit of sympathy. I doubt she's going to go crazy and we'll see her on the news anytime soon.

I agree, with what Allison Finch said. Plus it will probably be safer for your animals than that other trailer could have ever been anyways.

I doubt she would ever act on it. The fact that she wrote it though is just insane to me.

I find it hard to have sympathy for anyone who speaks of their family in that manner just because they didn't get what they wanted.

Wow, unfortunately we can't pick our family! I understand your frustration, but just hang in there.

Im not going to disagree, but we don't know her life or family. They might be robbers or kind people, we don't know. OP, I hope you can some how sort it out, best of luck. :-D
