10 kids, both parents on welfare, and they want to rent from us........o.0
myself dh and the kids are looking at moving in either feb or march, and have listed our house for long term lease or sale, it is 5 bed and 2 bath, and because it is a very rural location, listed about $1,000 less than a house of the same size in the city ( we are asking $1,000 mo or $135,000)
so this woman just called, she is looking for a house big enough for her self, her SO and their kids. 10 kids. to be exact.
she has 5, and her SO has 5.
and they are both on welfare. i told them i would want no less than $1,400 mo, for that many people, and that i would have to think about it.
but i am thinking no.
is that bad of me? i mean she sounds really nice and all.....but......ugh..10 kids!
and on welfare! am i being a jerk?THE BIGGEST CONCERN IS not THEM BEING ON WELFARE, IT IS 10 KIDS!!!!!!!!!!!!! 10!!!!! YOU THINK 2-3 KIDS CAN MAKE A MESS? TRY 10!!!!! AND I ALSO WILL ADMIT, I DONT THINK MOST PEOPLE ON ASSISTANCE ACTUALLY GIVE A SHIT IF THEIR HOUSE GETS WRECKED, AFTER ALL, IT'S NOT COMING OUT OF THEIR POCKET! to answer a few questions; i tend to chat up anyone who calls about our house, find out as much as i can, NOT illegal, and, btw, i DON'T live in the states. how do i know they are on full blown welfare? because i asked if they had work lined up, they DO NOT,she said neither of them worked, how do they live?i also asked that and she told me $1,400 mo WELFARE between the two of them, she gets about $900 mo child support and $3,500 MONTHLY between the two of them in canada child tax benefits. not one penny do they work for. as a hard working person, i cant help but be unimpressed at that. she also told me she has 5 kids, her SO has 5 kids ( now THERE is a GREAT choice, lifer on welfare with 5 kids finds another lifer on welfare with 5 kids, match made in heaven. smh!) and her SO's baby momma is in jail facing 12! charges! and is threatening them from jail as well. and the front window in her 3 bed room house is broken. where she lives with her SO and 10 kids. sounds like an IDEAL renter. we have other applicants who have jobs lined up out here and are moving for WORK. i would rather rent to them this is our HOME we are moving so dh can advance in his line of WORK and we cannot afford thousands in repairs, or people not paying rent and refusing to leave. if it was YOUR house you wouldn't do it either.
