Sunday Natter

Sometimes I really, really don't understand people or their attitudes towards someone that does something nice, out of the ordinary, or just plain not expected from a complete stranger, why do they then think you are weak, an easy target or someone you can vilify because they stepped out of the box of is it just being "all about me".

 

Over the years I've totally stepped out of my box a number of times, I've looked after people that needed someone to step in and give them a chance, an opportunity, a fair go and a break, maybe 50% of the time I've enjoyed that experience, helped someone in need, did something that they didn't expect, helped where I could help and have been rewarded beyond any expectation.

 

I've never thought life owes me anything, I've always thought how truly easy I've had it, even when my life has dealt me a raw deal. A husband that died of cancer aged 50, 2 daughter that died 1, 5 yo, 1, 3 yo, in a car accident where I was injured seriously and never made it to their funerals etc etc.  I've never blamed anyone, things just happen, the girls death probably could have been avoided, but what we were doing at the time meant we were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

So please tell me why are you vilifing me because I need my flat back for my son, this flat was created for him and his brother to use, your a tenant who I've bent over backwards to give you a break for the last 18 months your rent has been well below market expectation, I've looked after you and you have repayed me with your comments on facebook, not paying your gas bill, then sinking the knife in on facebook because I gave you "Notice to leave".  You forget you befriended me on facebook and I've been reading your lies.  This is my home, I offered you a place in my home, not knowing how much you receive in Government help, I don't get any handouts, I look after myself, I don't appreciate you filing a "notice of unfair Eviction" I've given you 90 days notice, give me the break that I've given you.

Ciao

    I would be pissed as well. This attitude keeps them on government assistance because they do not see their wrong and need to change and make something better for themselves. They deserve their lot. Grrr

      I’m just plain annoyed, I gave this women and her daughter a chance to get back on their feet again and I’ve given her 18 months of kindness, yet she has turned around and bitten me time and time again, when I spoke to her about the gas bill her answer was gas is cheap she shrugged her shoulders and walked away. In the time she has been here all she’s spoken about is having no money, yet she gets $50 a week rental allowance from the government, $200 per week carers allowance because her daughter supposedly has issues, she works full time and also get child support from her ex, she’s brought a new car, new furniture and lots of new clothes, yet she cannot and will not pay the gas bills.

      FF it won’t stop me from wanting to help people, but it will make me not want to do too much in the future.

    Its bad enough when you have to deal with this, from other people. But when its your own blood…what a heartbreaking mess…

      She had good references from all sorts of people, I gave her a hand and have had that hand bitten, in future I won’t be as easily fleeced and in a way she has fleeced me. She’s a user not a giver and she has the attitude that the world owes her.

    Well, poop. Do you need me to come and beat up someone?

    March 22, 2015
    1. sharnsgarden

      The offer is lovely, but the “builder”, my 32 yo and 30 yo son’s are just as willing to beat her up All I want is for her to go and to go peacefully, no fuss, no bother, just leave here.

        Well, yes, that would be ideal. But I thought it would be polite of me to offer to pound her a little.

    It’s because you have a good giving heart, Sharn. There are many that take advantage of giving hearts. I’m sorry this happened to you, you don’t deserve it. It’s having a trusting nature and there are many “cons” out in the world that just don’t care.

      Dreamy I’m just disappointed I always expect the best from people, I’ll do this again and next time hope that the person gives back, not to me but carries it forward to someone else who may need a helping hand.
