So, I had to go to court Monday over the douche face who didnt want to give my deposit back on the home I thought I was renting to own via land contract. He backed out on us 4 days before we were to move in, leaving me with 12 days to repack all of our things. We had already put in our 30 day notice at the apartment complex we were living at. Needless to say, my flipping out is an understatement.
The judge ruled in my favor, of course, since I hadn't even moved in there yet.
We communicated today via text message. At first things were quite a bit less than friendly, but after awhile we both softened up a bit. He was upset that at the time I didn't offer my condolences in respect to his mother who had passed on just as we were settling our deal. I'm pretty sure that I did, but I was so upset at the time it may not have crossed my mind.
After I told him I was very sorry that he had lost his mother, and apologized for any offensive words I may have thrown his way, he seemed satisfied. Not once did he apologize for leaving me and my children with nowhere to live. I didn't mention that to him though. I was just trying to settle this and get my money back.
I was told that he would call me back within a few hours to discuss a payment plan. Surprisingly, he did call back.
He told me he would give me $50 on August 23rd, $150 on September 6th, and the other $600 on September 15th when he got his financial aid check. Obviously he and his wife are full time students.
While I am very happy that he has offered at last to give my money back, I just wish I could get the lump sum all at once. 50 here and 150 there just really isn't what I want. After all, I didn't pay him in payments. I took him an envelope with 8 $100 bills in it.
I guess I should be happy that he is offering to pay at all. That money sure will come in handy. Frye baby will be here by August 25th at the latest, and I have hardly anything for the little guy as of right now.
What I wouldn't give to be one of those "Real Housewives" you see on tv. Ah well, maybe in another life.
