I found out a lot more today from our spy, my elderly widow neighbor (biggest gossip in the neighborhood). First, they blame me due to the legal battle over the wall, claiming attorney fees bled them dry. However, there are larger issues here, one of them being that their 15 y/o uninsured "beauty pageant-winning" daughter got impregnated by
(and received a nasty STD from) a 30-something y/o carnie
(as in a transient carnival worker) named José, whom no one can seem to find, now. I somehow doubt he's in the USA legally. Also, the idiot neighbor bought a new truck (now repo'd) for a new job, which he was fired from within a month because he was chronically late to work, I'm sure he probably blames me for that too. AND his worthless 28 y/o son, who still lives with them, was busted for possession of illegally obtained prescription narcotics, with intent to resell. The whole lot of them are the definition of hillbilly white trash.
I called the accounts manager at their bank, and at first he didn't want to give any info, but eventually said they still have "a few days", but after that they're being evicted, they've been in arrears on their mortgage for over a year now and were served with the notice nearly 2 months ago. Ironically, when his "daddy" left him the house it was 100% paid for, and he took out the mortgage to do some "major" improvements and build an addition, but he never finished any of it (leaving it as a neighborhood eyesore) and spent the money on stupid s***, like an expensive cruise to the Caribbean and a $20k Harley, a supposed "investment" that he left out in the rain for a month and practically ruined. He and his wife have been going crazy trying to sell everything they have to keep from losing the family homestead, including dumping that bike for something like $7,000, but it hasn't been enough.
Now, I'm not entirely heartless, I do feel pity despite the fact they've done nothing but abuse us, however they haven't even tried to ask for any help from me... Not saying I would, but if they apologized for everything and worked to make amends, I'd consider it. My wife would kill me though, she's been celebrating ever since finding out. Then there's the issue that within a year they'd be in exactly the same spot. As my grandfather was fond of saying, "ignorance can often be remedied, but you can't fix stupid".
