Okay, I need to let off some steam and since nobody is here right now but me, a two year old and the animals I figured I'd just type it out of my
I have a neighbor whom even before we were neighbors was a friend of my family. I have known him since I was a small child. He is in bad financial
circumstances and we have been feeding him off and on for many months. I don't have a problem with that as we have always fed and sometimes housed
extra people who need a little help.
Well, this neighbor has been out of work (other than occasional lawn mowing jobs or scrapping metals) for over two years. His lights were cut off a
few days ago, his house is in foreclosure, he's driving illegally (no tags, inspection, insurance, drivers license, etc)- and he is driving me
This person comes to my house every day and rants non-stop for a couple of hours at a whack! I try to lighten the mood and offer constructive
suggestions but he shoots them all down, giving every excuse in the book of how everything is everybody else's fault and never his own. Nearly every
person in his life has cut him off completely because they are sick of the constant negativity and his lack of taking personal responsibility- and
I'm about to the point where I've dang near had enough of it as well!
A few nights ago he was escorted by police out of his favorite hang out- banned for life because he won't quit ranting and starting loud arguments
when people disagree with his "blame game". So now he's beating on my door 3-4 times a day. I care for this person almost like a distant relative
but my nerves have been stretched about as far as they can go. I'm afraid I'm about to go off on him at any second, though I'm fighting really hard
not to- because he just doesn't have anyone else to talk to anymore. I've reached the point where I am almost looking forward to the mortgage
company finally booting him out just so he has to go stay elsewhere and I won't have to deal with the negativity so often.
I know I sound like a horrible person, but after being bombarded with negativity every day for months and months, and now for HOURS every day I can't
take it anymore. Aaaarrrggg!!!!
Well, I feel much better now. Thank you for allowing me to vent. Hopefully I will get a few hours before he comes back and starts ranting all over
again. Thank you for listening!
