Subject: BS: Mrrzy is living in interesting times...
From: Mrrzy
Date: 07 Apr 12 - 02:42 PM

Well, back in January, as some of you know, my pub closed.

Then, my car died. I didn't complain here because it was my fault for not sliding some oil to her when she needed it (musical reference alert). Yes, I actually killed a corolla through neglect.

Then our landlady told us to declutter or be evicted, so we did.

But, she's evicting us anyway. We need a place by the end of the month. Single parent, twin teenagers just finishing their junior (3rd) year of high school, and 2 small cats. Just as well I don't believe in curses.

Are we having fun yet?

I do hope you find some speedy solutions to your difficulties, Mrrzy. You are facing major challenges, that is for sure. You're in the southern USA somewhere, aren't you?

Going through my own trials. (See Curmudgeon thread.)

Builds character, doesn't it? Geez, I don't know about you, but I thought I was enough of a character to start out with.

Seriously, I wish you all the best. And may it work out better than your wildest dreams.

My best offer is to put this all together as another home-wrecked blues. However, gallows humor may not be what you need more of just now. Maybe after you're resettled.

Movin day, movin day
Pick your (somethings) off the floor
(something something) going out the door
Cause it's movin day
Pack up all your grips and get away
If you spent every cent you can live out in a tent
It's mooooooovin day.

What about taking a very short lease on a small apartment, 6 months, moving now, and using those 6 months to find something better?

The car I looked at failed the mechanic's audition. The other one I was looking at got sold while I was looking at the one that flunked.

Life goes on, it happens every day
So 'preciate what you got before it's taken away
Life will hit you when you're unprepared
So be grateful and take all that you can while you're there
Take that frown off your head
You're a long time dead (?)
Life goes on and on and on

Yeah, well, on the other hand, you might only be "dead" for a second or two. All we ever know consciously is being alive, and that might continue after what we call "death". We won't know till we get there.

One would think that Mrrzy could at least make it to an internet cafe, if they still exist. Meanwhile there are always these verses from The Pity the Downtrodden Landlord Songbook to muse over:

Chorus:

I'm bound for that beautiful city,
My Lord has prepared for His own;
Where all the redeemed of all ages
Sing "glory" around the white throne;
Sometimes I grow homesick for heaven,
And the glories I there shall behold:
What a joy that will be when my Savior I see,
In that beautiful city of gold.

We'll never pay rent for our mansion,
The taxes will never come due;
Our garments will never grow threadbare,
But always be fadeless and new;
We'll never be hungry nor thirsty,
Nor languish in poverty there,
For all the rich bounties of heaven
His sanctified children will share.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

That's what I was thinking, too, maeve. In the midst of moving, esp. with kids and in dire straits, getting to any kind of internet access is probably way down on the list of priorities.

I hope she has found some accommodation.

Aargh. Thanks, and yes, I am bad at doing anything other than car- and apt-shop when i do get online...

So, my month's notice is halfway over, no sign of an apt yet, and I am also still looking for a lawyer as I don't think you can really evict peopple for things that were true when you renewed the lease. On verra.

And I am still in a rental car, which I do NOT plan on living in!

I spate in me fist and I picked up me stick
And up the coach road like a deer I did trip
I cared not for bailiff, landlord, or Old Nick
And I sang like the lark in the morning...

And to entertain folks until Mrrzy's next update:


Words and music by Guy Clark
© 1975 BMG Music
Recorded on Old No. 1, SH-C-1030

La Freeway

Pack up all your dishes,
Make note of all good wishes,
Say good-bye to the landlord for me,
Son-of-a-bitches always bore me;
Throw out them LA papers,
Moldy bags of vanilla wafers,
Adios to all this concrete,
Gonna get me some dirt road back street.

Chorus:

If I can just get off of this LA Freeway,
Without gettin' killed or caught,
I'll be down the road in a cloud of smoke
To some land I ain't bought, bought, bought!

Looking for a lawyer? Isn't there a not-for-profit housing agency in your region? Something like that?

I don't mean a body that rents housing, I mean an agency that keeps an eye on landlords and gives advice.

We, our three kids, six cats, one dog, and two birds lived in a motel room for three months as we waited for the place we were going to rent to become vacant/lease ran out. It was an adventure, but doable. Maybe it would work for you as a stop-gap measure?

there is a possible 6-months lease on a small apt available now BUT I have finally actually gotten to talk to a lawyer and she can't evict me just by sending me a letter, she has to take me to court, and until then there is really nothing she can do if I stay here... so I am worrying more now about the car, and will continue to fight the eviction. If we can stay another year, hostile landlord or not, the boys will graduate and I can go live with my mom who will need me by then, is the plan.

I am relieved about the court thing - since she has filed no papers, I have more time than I thought. I was under the impression that she could just show up with bailiffs and they would toss all my furniture out into the street...

So back to trying to buy a car!

I think the analogy I was not thinking of was Herding cats. But spitting on a fish sounds about right too!

Well. A reprieve. Good. I thought at the beginning it sounded like very short notice to evict you, but I don't know much about these laws here, let alone elsewhere.

Also, I wondered if she had told you to declutter because she knew she was going to try to get you out and was afraid you would be one of those tenants who left a lot of stuff behind for her to deal with.

Whatever paths you choose, I hope you will keep us informed.

I thought you might learn that an eviction isn't so easy once you spoke with an attorney. My brother is in Real Estate (in California) and they do some property management - there are people in California who make it a practice to rent then get themselves evicted by landlords who are so desperate to have them leave that they pay them to move, even though they stopped paying rent months earlier. I know that's not where you're at - those people are taking advantage of laws set up to help someone like you.

It's useful to remind the landlady that you're aware that she'll need a court order to legally evict you. Then maybe you can agree to something more agreeable as a date to move out.

A tenant who know his or her rights is a force to be reckoned with.

So she can wait till the twins finish high school next spring, they've lived here since they were 3 for crying out loud.

A certain amount of wear and tear is expected in a rental situation. Did the clutter/damage go beyond a normal accumulation of stuff or a normal amount of wear? Things can be fixed, as you say, and if they continued while you had leases renewed, it seems to suggest it wasn't a concern. I was in an apartment for 2 1/2 years between divorce and buying a new home. When they inspected there were some splashes on the wall, slight stains next to the trash can where tomato sauce or tea bags had splashed on their way into the trash. Even with regular wiping down, the spots left stains - nothing structurally wrong, just a cosmetic thing that paint will solve. She commented that since we'd been there over two years it was covered as a reasonable kind of mark to expect. If I'd stayed less than 2 years I might have had to pay for paint.

Maybe it isn't too bad - my "Check Engine" light kept coming on and they couldn't find out what was wrong - the car ran okay. It has now been permanently "on" for well over a year. The mechanic said there are lots of things, some major, some minor, that can cause the light to go on. When it's flashing that usually means a major problem, when it's just on - maybe it's a major problem but it might not be. My car has been running fine so maybe you can get away with it for a while...Good luck!!!!

If you are not a high mileage driver go onto turbobricks (website - google) and start looking out for a nice used 2 or 7 series Volvo estate - you will get one as cheap as chips, they are spacious and comfortable. Remember they are 20 years old and budget for maintenance and check the oil and water daily and keep a spare fuel pump relay and you will probably be fine for another 10 years. They rust less than almost any other car. The catalyst equipped ones should fly through emissions testing (smog testing). But they do do only about 25 to the UK gallon (less of course to the US gallon).

Sometimes, if you park a vehicle on a slope with the front end downward a "vacuum pressure" in the gas tank will cause the check engine light to come on. SOMEtimes, merely taking off and replacing the gas cap will clear it. If not, at my Ford dealership, it costs $68 + 13% tax to clear it... or $10 cash for my buddy at my service station. He never wants the money but I tell him if he doesn't take it I will drop it on the ground and walk away and that would be rude so, "Please don't embarass me."

Apropos of "check engine" light: I have a 2011 Ford Focus. Early last year the "engine malfunction" light started to come on at frequent intervals, accompanied by an apocalyptic bleeping noise and the car going into limp mode. The first time it happened I called out the AA man, who, having plugged in his diagnostic gizmo, told me that it was something to do with my turbo overboost (or was it underboost?) and that he couldn't fix it and it might cost me hundreds. Well, I noticed that all I ever had to do to get the car out of limp mode and banish the warning light was to turn off the ignition and turn it back on again. After a spate of this happening, well, it stopped happening, for over a year. Last week it did it again, twice. Same solution: ignition off then on again. It's done 300 miles since the last time and the car goes like a bomb. In fact, since the first time it happened, I've done 30,000 miles trouble-free. I sort of know when my car is playing up and I don't need nannying by an onboard computer. And if I think I hear a funny noise, I always try the time-honoured solution first: turn the radio up!

That is why I suggested incorporating under the dept of education.
Freedom of speech protects you to speak. You may not be permitted to diagnose but when 22 vets are killing themselves everyday who needs to diagnose. There is no more risk than running a bar. Collaboration with WW is helpful. You may know that suffering vets often feel the need to have some sort of weapon, like a security blanket. General Practitioner referral notification is another safeguard.

Or one could sell election toys on pinterest.

Or sell hedge funds to protect $ should Trump win.

I think it will eventually be something you find fun that will be profitable.

Then my phone starts going off with messages from all my sisters and other niblings and thought, Oh shit, who died? before seeing any of the messages.

Then this morning, my cat dies.

Hi, Mrrzy. I will now pass along some tips on interviewing which I learned from a speaker who had been an HR person and had conducted many interviews.

1. Get your hair styled. (This was aimed at college students, most of whom let their hair just grow.)

2. Get your teeth cleaned, so you will feel more confident about smiling.

3. Smile during the interview, so the interviewer will picture you about the place, smiling.

I think the last thing is the most important.
=========
I'm sorry for your many misfortunes, but I hope the interview goes well.

Does this count as "turning down work or offers of work" from the unemployment point of view? I'm kind of afraid to ask the actual people, in case the answer is yes.

Hi, Mrrzy. There's a reason why people invented lying.

If anybody says you were "turning down work," claim that you were reaching for the phone when awakened from deep sleep, and you knocked the phone to the floor, putting it out of commission until you.....

One way to find out: get a bunch of friends to push it to the top of the hill, get in, get 'er rolling in second gear with your foot on the clutch, and once it picks up a little speed, ease off the clutch and the engine will catch. A bit of driving and the battery should get back into order, unless it actually needs replacing.
Oh, wait, though, I don't know the automatic-car version of this…
If it's not the battery, the second most common thing is plugs 'n' points, which aren't a dear thing to fix.

So, I went to NoVa for tea, to meet a family into which one of my nieces is marrying, and someone totalled my car on my way back to the highway. No injuries - I was sitting waiting to go left, they pulled up and sat to my right waiting to go left, and when traffic cleared they forgot I was there and just went, so the entire length of their car scraped the entire length of my car. But insurance says 2 doors and some frame work are more than my car is worth, and it took me FOREVER to find a stickshift.

My mom bought me that car just before she died, too.

Years ago a friend's daughter has several involuntary admissions - once a taxi driver saw her behaving erratically so took her to hospital - but she talked her way out after a day or so (yes, I'll take my medicine, I'll stay with my dad ...)

Mrzzy I share the anguish of kids in jeopardy. It feels hopeless but isn't. The future is on their side.

Employment is hard edged. In the final analysis people don't really care about you unless they want something from you. An employer will care more about the job, unless you are self employed or working for friends or family.
Will the job be a service or a product?

Yeah, valoum... Zoomier than valium. Which is what I meant.

Haha Mrrzy! I think 'valoum' is what I need, if it helps one to whizz around energetically!
Glad to hear the patient is improving, with hopes for coming home at the end of the month.

Oh he is NOT coming home. They have found him an apartment. Lessee if he gets the job he needs to keep it, and gets his meds etc. I am so proud of myself for not letting him come home that the guilt is almost imperceptible.

Sorry, yeah, just using my phone way too much and my computer not enough. Things are quiet now (well, we got flooding in the town but not the house). Thank you all.

No, no, I just am kinda depressed and not online here enough (spending way too much time correcting people on facebook on my phone, and not anywhere that takes typing like here). Thanks.

Kid is out, and I saw them pick up refills of meds (seemed to be about a week late but I'll take it). Doesn't contact me unless in need, of course, typical and refreshingly normal parental complaint, so I guess fine as I haven't heard anything lately.

But I don't think there is a job, yet, so I still worry. Again, refreshingly normal worries.

And thanks for checking in on my saga. Be assured that if anything happens, it will get posted!

I have a similar scenario with our youngest and I know there are far more mixed feelings that you may have but don't talk about.

Its just another brick in the heart.
