Called CPS on SIL

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
My BIL And SIL are the trashiest people in the world and I live next door to them.
DH is a teacher and I’m a nurse. We have a nice home with two young girls and his brother and his wife live next to us in an eyesore of a falling apart trailer with three teenagers she had from a previous marriage, she takes advantage of him, he adopted them a few years ago after she pressured him for years about it, and one six year old they have together..
She is on disability aka “I don’t want to work, so I am going to pretend to have ptsd and panic attacks” and BIL has worked the same dead end job for 25 or 30 years.
They have a tacky wooden swing set she brags about getting free for hauling away on a yard sale site. But really it’s just ugly and imo it’s an accident waiting to happen
Well, a month ago when we had those really bad cold snaps, their pipes froze and some busted.
Monday I went over to see her and found out she was terribly behind in her dishes.
She said it was difficult to keep up with because she had to heat the water in a pan until tax time, that they had already filed and just waiting on them to come in. They get the earned income credit so they get a huge check, and then her DH, and teenaged boys would fix the pipes (poor kids having to do this kind of work)
I asked how the kids were bathing and how she was doing laundry.
She said she still did laundry she just did it in cold water. (GROSS) and that they were heating water in pans for the kids to take baths.
So I thought about it and after thinking really hard I decided to call CPS.
The worker came out yesterday morning and left then BIL came home early. These are my off days.i Work 6 Days on and go ur off.
So I called down and asked if everything was ok, and they told me that CPS had been out. I immediately offered to take the kids and they asked why I would need to.
I told them with the problems they had just assumed..
And SIL got snotty and said that no, while she had a few dishes left she and DD had done most of them the night before, and while they didn’t have HOT water they had running water and CPS had no issues.
CPS HAD NO ISSUES with their home which honestly should be condemned!!!! Then she accused me of making the call because she said I was the only one to have been at the house in the last week. Then started hyperventilating and pretending to have a “panick attack”
I was just trying to help her poor children have a decent chance. They can’t even take a shower!!! And now DH is mad at me!!!! He told me it wasn’t my place to put my nose in, and he won’t speak to me. Of all people I would have have thought he would understand why I did it!!

I didn’t know there was a problem until Monday, I couldn’t offer help until I knew there was a problem

I offered to let them come shower at my house when I found out but SHE doesn’t leave her house except doctors appointments or when she absolutely HAS to

We live in the country, DH’s Parents gave DH and BIL each a piece of land DH build us a home and BIL bought a trashy trailer

I work full time and you’ll never see that in my house ever my kids deserve better than that

Quoting Anonymous 7: You sound really judgy. Did you expect CPS to come take the kids and give them to you? Oh no the dishes weren't done and the laundry is washed in cold water! The horror.

They weren't neglected. They still had access to water and were doing what they can with what they had. Water shortages happen often in other areas of the country. Quick, call CPS!

You're a fucking idiot.

I wish it was possible for people who make bullshit calls, to pay fines for wasting cps's time.

LMAO. My 14 year old is going to help dad fix a car this weekend. She built a boat at school (8 foot skiff, only girl in the class and it is awesome) and she would love to run some pipes! Oh and she has chores. Would you like to call CPS on me?

We live in the country zoning is looser out here technically the trailer was there first..
That’s not the point
The point is this woman is practically neglecting her kids then begging for attention “look at meeeee!” And hyperventilates

Quoting SnowKittyDemon: What city zones for trailers and houses right next to each other?

Still doesn't change that you're a bitch. Waiting for the "woe is me my dh ditched my ass" post.

Quoting Anonymous 1: It’s not a trailer park it’s a single trailer on a piece of land. Their parents gave them each a piece of land.
DH built us a home.
BIL bought a TRAILER.

Quoting Anonymous 4: Your house isn't that great if you're living next door to a trashy trailer park. Just sayin. I can see why your dh isn't speaking to you.
