Well, today I saw the electric company turning off the electricity at my rental while cutting the grass across the street. In my mind, they were gone. However, I was absolutely wrong!!!!!
About 5 o’ clock, I started cutting the grass that was about 3 feet tall in the back yard. Her eis the front
This is what it looked like after I ran it over. Better, but still a mess. Anyway, I was almost finished and my wife heard a dog barking from inside the house. No food, no electricity, no water, and the front door wide open. Within 30 minutes, I had the police called on me for trespassing on my own property. Can you imagine that? My bouse, and someone who owes me almost 4 months rent calls the police on me for cleaning the mess they created. Anyway, the officer was very nice. I can’t imagine the issues he must deal with every day. I really glad he was the one who came by to answer the call.
Anyhow, I cannot believe the issues that I must deal with when renting to someone. They can owe me money and destroy my property and after all that, I can still be harassed by them by having the police called on me. This situation is crazy. I have to go to court tomorrow to get the final eviction, but since they left, I just went to start cleaning up. Amazing that I have zero rights. I feel the laws are totally flawed. I am very lenient and mellow with my tenants. I think that is a mistake. They definitely take advantage of me.
Well, I am still dirty, and I am worn out. My days are hot and tiring lately, but I must continue to move forward. My father used to tell me to tackle one thing at a time, or it becomes overwhelming. He was right—-I sure do miss him.
I can only try my best to make things right. I figure that if I do the right thing, good will come my way. I am not going to change because someone else feels entitled and wants to cause me grief. They will never truly prosper. Oh, they might get some free gov’t money or food stamps, but they will never truly be free. They are a slave to the system. They have to conform to certain behaviors in order to comply with the qualifications.
On Mother’s day, I worked cutting grass. I really had no choice. However, the tenants in that house were laying around while the grass was still 3 feet tall. Something leads me to believe they will always have grass that is 3 feet tall, and they will always be looking for a free ride. I do jot want a free ride. I have been working as long as I can remember. I used to work with my dad on every project since I was a mere child. His work ethic is now my work ethic. I just want to do my work and make things a little better every day.
Well, I am really tired and worn out right now, and my words have been all over the place. I just want this issue to go away tomorrow when the court date comes. Hopefully, things work out.
I look at my kids, and I want them to know that I would never hurt someone or try to rip them off. I want to be a good role model for them, and help them grow into respectable adults. I will never lower myself to the level of the filth that feels entitled, and takes without giving back. I want my children to feel the same way about me that I feel about my father. If I accomplish that, my life will be successful.
Wish me luck for tomorrow, and good luck to all of you.
