Speaking of snowflakes who want people's stuff...
My sister's being incredibly SS. (I'm almost sure she's literally killing our mother with it, too, but I digress.)
BG: We moved from Colorado three years ago when my dad got a job here, and logistics meant that only the stuff we desperately needed could come with us. Everything we didn't bring is still in boxes in the old house's garage. We really want to bring it out here, but we have neither the time nor the money - the one time we were able to actually go down there, we had to cancel it due to a sudden death. (end BG)
Well, my sister's about to be moving into the old house, as the parents have kindly agreed to let her live there. She'll have no rent (it's paid off) and she'll only have to pay utilities. Well, apparently that makes her entitled to do whatever she wants with OUR STUFF, because yesterday she called again to kvetch about the sheer number of boxes sitting in the garage. She does this regularly, but this time she's gone too far.
She's threatening to rent dumpsters and throw everything away because we haven't had the time or money to come look through it, and she doesn't want OUR stuff to be in OUR house any more. I don't doubt she'll actually do it, and I know she'll send US the bill if she does.
My mother is now so upset she's been throwing up all night, and she can't even bear the thought of talking to my sister any more.
Are we out of line to want her to leave OUR stuff alone? It's not even her house, it's still in the parents' name, they still pay the property taxes, they're taking care of all the nitty-gritty involving sister's friend who was renting the place (we didn't want to let it sit empty, and sister wasn't going to move in at the time.) Yet she seems to think just because we're doing her a favor, she can turn around and do what she wants with a house that is NOT EVEN HERS.
I love my sister, really I do, but I really just want to strangle her. Augh.
