Granny I'm so sorry about your day. I don't know what the laws are like there, but I do know that here getting someone evicted is a big process. We moved right when the market crashed around here, and couldn't sell our old house, so we rented it out. We even had a rental company that was supposedly doing the screening/checking/etc etc for us. Well, the people paid their deposit, supposedly checked out well, and then never paid a penny of rent and trashed the house completely. It took us months to repair everything that they had done to it. Anyway, we had to do all kinds of stuff to get them evicted, and it took a few months (3? It was a few years and a few babies ago, so my mind is not what it used to be, lol). Like I said I don't know what the laws are like there, and I don't know who you can even call to find out, but maybe your county? Also, I find that when you get a group of men together, that the stupidity level tends to rise. This is generally speaking and just from my own experience having 4 males in the house, not to offend anyone. My husband is a wonderful man; loving, affectionate, a great daddy, and pretty good lookin' but he is the worst when it comes to stuff like that. Makes me homicidal. THE MOST annoying thing that he does on a regular basis? He leaves knives everywhere. Like, steak knives, butcher knives, generally any kind of very sharp knife. He'll take something to the table to cut (like a pineapple or something, for example) and leave the $*#& knife there. He leaves knives right on the edge of the counter, resting on the edge of the sink... I'm shocked that none of my children have stabbed themselves or chopped off a finger.
