Players: (for whose who haven't followed my threads)
Grandma - My mom's mother. very enabling and a little demented. now living in a senior housing.
Good Uncle - Helps with Grandma's care, unfortunately had a wild teen and young adult life but has recently straightening up and stepped up.
Useless Uncle - My 30 some year old uncle is has never moved out on his own and never held more than a min wage job, pays no bills and is coddled by Grandma.
Toxic Aunt - too long a history of abusive and toxic behavior in the family to get into. recently tried blackmailing Grandma out of her car and some money with some very sensitive family information. Also coddled by grandma.
1) Grandma decided to give Toxic Aunt her car "just for a week".
We know we're not getting it back so Mom and Good Uncle are working to get grandma's name off the insurance. Grandma is boo-hooing how mean we all are to TA and how we don't "love and respect" her. We all agreed Grandma is not getting another car after this.
2) Good Uncle went to help Useless Uncle move into their new shared apartment today and Useless is...gone. No furniture, no note and no forwarding address.
Grandma doesn't know yet but I imagine when she is told there will be drama because Useless is her "baby". (I'm not shedding a tear because Useless is the uncle with whom I had the incident as a child. )
I'm sure more will follow soon.
