My sister and her husband befriended some people that gave me the heebie-jeebies. They wouldn't listen to me, of course. These people were having to get out of the place they "bought" (foreclosure perhaps? or sheriff's sale? not sure) since they hadn't been making payments on it. They asked my brother-in-law to take some of their things (a couple old cars, and I'm not sure what else) over to their place to "hide" them during this process. I strongly advised them to have NOTHING to do with these people and not let them bring anything over to their place. My sister agreed with me, but her husband on the other hand went ahead and let them since he has no backbone to tell anyone "no". Now, my sister and her husband are preparing to go down south for a few months this winter and they want these people to get their stuff out of there. They have asked them to do it, given them deadlines and the people won't. I don't know all the details (don't really want to know!) but I think my sister has threatened them that if they don't get their stuff out of there by such-and-such a date that the stuff will either be gone, or law enforcement will be called, or something to that effect. Well, the lady of this dysfunctional couple is now threatening my sister saying she's going to call the lawyer and this and that. I'm not sure what foot she thinks she is standing on......but these people are this way: they are users. I tried telling my sister and especially my bil that he was going to be sorry getting wrapped up with these people, but he always sees the best in people and never expect them to take advantage of him. He is such a people-pleaser. Is there anything you can think of why she would be going to a lawyer, other than it just being a threat of hot-air? Do you think my sister and bil can just get rid of the stuff? I wish they NEVER would've gotten involved with these people, but they did. I'm just curious if anyone has any similar experiences and what did they do?
