Honestly they need numbers. This person is like Cakeasaurus Rex #13245.  It usually doesn't go into chargeback territory, but we get some pretty nasty emails from time to time.

OK, we need a thread of the Cakeasaurus Tales

 Yes!

I can't find the Cakeasaurus Rex story and would love to read it.  For some reason, when I search, I get an error message telling me I'm not allowed to search.  I'm logged in.

It starts at page 1506, just read the pastry goddess replies from there on.

Yes, thank you.  I did a search for "Cakeasaurus" and came up with nothing.  Pulled up Pastry Goddesses posts and read through a dozen or so before I found the lemon cake story.  Whoo, it's outrageous!  Would be fun to have it all in one place plus updates.

Or the parents say, "Oh, it's too bad that all that stuff is taking up space in the garage. Let's see what we can do. That's a 3-bedroom house. The upper right bedroom is not needed--so don't put any furniture in it. We'll keep that room as ours, and not yours. After all, you're not paying any rent, so we can't really let you use the whole house. However, you may move all that stuff from the garage into the bedroom, so that you may have more room in the garage. Then close the bedroom door, and don't think about it again."
I would just put locks on the garage.  Take the garage away from the SS sister.

Now that she's made the threat, I would be *very* nervous about having my stuff there.  What if next time she gets a bug up her behind, she just starts tossing stuff, or calls Goodwill, or puts it out on the curb?  Sure, you could evict her then, but the damage has been done.  I would be thinking very hard about whether or not I felt I could trust her to be in the house at all.

I'm all for kicking her out if she pulls anything else, personally, but the problem is, she's literally not going to have any place else to stay and my parents can't deal with leaving her AND her disabled boyfriend out on the street.

Even knowing that, my only response would be, "You have 24 hours to get the hell out of my house." And I'd call the police to make sure she left. I might let let the boyfriend stay, but he'd have to choose between her and the house, and he'd have to sign a lease and pay a nominal rent to make it official.

Actually, making her sign a lease outlining certain rules (like NOT disposing of family items being stored therein, and perhaps outlining specific areas where such things are stored) might not be a bad idea.

That's exactly what I'd say. Also, is there someone who can do a photo-inventory of the garage?

The OP & family are halfway across the country or something--they'd have to get someone to do that for them, and there's no way to be sure she wouldn't get a crowbar and pry the hasp off.

And I second Hillia's nervousness.

That's one reason why I suggested that Mom say, "just move it into that extra bedroom," to redirect Sis. Heck, it might be easier and actually effective to hire someone to move it into a spare bedroom; then you know it's in there, and there's no reason for Sis to keep seeing it and having it bug her.

I don't know if the stuff in the garage is really in the way--it may be a territorial thing on her part. But even if it is, moving it all into the smallest bedroom might remove the "reminder" part.

The other option might be to move it all into a storage unit, and make Sis pay rent to Mom & Dad that's equal to the storage-unit rent. (I wouldn't want her paying it directly; she could just stop, and the stuff would be seized.)
