so i was in a chat last week here on exile, and i told a couple people about a swing set that was on the property was we rent.
We started renting in late march, the previous tenants moved out in Jan, said they would be back to get the swing set. My landlord told them that that would be fine, as long as they came back within 60 days, she gave them 30 more days than she had to by law.
When we moved in she told us this, but said they never came back and never called so it was ours to enjoy.
well last Monday she called me and told me that they were coming to get it, 5 months after they moved, that they had sold it to their parents, who live across the street from us.
I was a little pissed, especially since they day before (mothers day) we built a sandbox for dd in the base of it. I was a little butt hurt but knew it didn't belong to us, and then got over it, hung her swing from a nearby tree and my landlord gave us her step 2 crabby sandbox so i wouldn't lose all my sand.
well yesterday, we were outside playing, then all the sudden this bobcat comes tearing up on my lawn. it was the neighbors coming to take the swing set.
they didn't say one word to us, not "hey! we're your neighbors, we're here to get the swing set" no introductions, just rolled up on the lawn, almost took out my mailbox and daughters pool. it was like we were invisible.
i know we don't own this house, but it is our home for now. and we do pay to live here. you could have at least introduced yourself before you roll up on my fucking lawn with heavy equipment, yelling and cursing at each other.
they moved it across the street look out one of the sides of their chain link fence and half a tree, fuckers.
the swing set looks seriously rickety over there, i would never put my kid on that thing now.
