We're finally getting our own place and I'm supposed to be grateful *UPDATE

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

We live in an apartment right now and our lease is up in two months. Apparently when dh's uncle died a few months ago he left DH his home. I knew nothing about this, but dh had talked to his uncle about it before he passed away. I've never been there, but I know it's a shit hole. DH says we can make it our own, and fix it up and sell it if we want. I'm supposed to be grateful? I'm moving my two kids to a shit hole, but it's my shit hole so I should be kissing DH's feet. I'm having a hard time with this.

So my husband and I talked about it and I got all the details. The land does not belong to us and the land rental is $75 per month. He says it does have electric and plumbing and a shared well with others in the area. Selling it in that are, which is what I want to do, we could probably get $200-$300.00 for it. He wants me to give it a chance, my concern is that if we have it for three months, and then sell it for 200 bucks we've already lost money on it. DH says we don't have to pay lot rent for 2 months, so he has two months to "fix it up" to my standards or we sell it. I don't even like this deal we've made because we are going to lose every penny he puts in to it in the next two months but he is really upset that I am "looking a gift horse in the mouth". He's going to go there over the weekend and get pictures of the inside for me. I said I want pictures before I know if I'm willing to go look at it in person. The bus was left to DH's cousin, but he's refusing to pick it up and doesn't want it so I'm going to sell it to a junk yard and pocket the cash since it looks like we're going to lose all kinds of money over the next two months. I'm phoning my landlord and going on a month to month lease so we have time to find a place or renew this one when our lease is up because there is no way DH can fix that pile of shit.

OMG are you kidding me? How freaking greedy!  And what do you consider a shit hole?

Yes I would be grateful  a FREE house that you can make into whatever you want, that is amazing!  I'd be so excited.

But hey, don't be grateful be a sourpuss.

Oh . . . Its a shithole trailer in a gross trailer park? Hell no, I'd sell it.

Quoting Anonymous:

It's a huge fucking gross trailer park, from the picture DH sent me. I've never been there.

Quoting anotherhalf: Is it in a bad neighborhood?

It's a trailer not even a house. No way I'd live there.

You're bitching about something you have never actually seen. So take the money you pay for rent and fix the house up. Anything can be remodeled.

Fix it up , your getting a house for nothing and yes you sound ungrateful. If you hate it that much save up and buy your own house .

What A SNOB!!!! I agree with your dh. If its such a shit hole, demolish it and build what you want.

Oh wait...can't do that can you? Because that would cost money. You refuse to see the potential of this generous gift. How sad. SMH

EDIT: The shit hole shack pics were NOT up yet. I was apparently writing my reply as the pics went up
