I called Bro to tell him that the water bill is here and he owes 2/3.
Me: Yes, because you have 2 people up there.
Him: BTW, we filled the oil tank.
Me: Who did you call?
Him: Joe Schmo’s Oil. You didn’t hear a truck?
Me: I was probably not here.
Him: BTW, we paid taxes, too, for November. $800. Girlfriend paid half and I paid half.
Me: Wait a second, Bro — why didn’t you tell me you went down there? I have the tax bill.
Him: I will give you a receipt. BTW, they said you are rude when you go down there. I won’t give names…
For the record, I was not “rude” the last time I went down there, which wss 2 weeks ago; I went to get the tax billings for the last 7 years, so I could bring the “what he owes” up to accurate date.
And I spoke with the CFO/former tax collector extensively during the second week in September; that’s when he told me about when the tax sale would be, what to do to split the house into condos, etc — I mentioned the conversation I had with CFO early last month in a prior post.
Me: Do NOT get her involved in this. She has guest status.
Him (Screaming) Mind your business (hsngs up)
Monday for oil?
Why didn’t they get maintenance out here FIRST and then get the oil tank filled?s
Maintenance Guy for Oil just told Bro something is broken and “you’re looking at about $500 to fix it….”
Gee, too bad, huh.
Oh…why Bro did not call the usual oil provider, the one we have had for 16 years? “Oh my credit is bad and I have to establish an account…”
BULL. The last time he got oil was the winter of 2006. His credit with them was fine at the time; I remember he paid using his card.
Fun times, I’m tellin’ ya…FUN TIMES.
The tax payment is not even towards this quarter, per se: they merely deduct that money from the 2 quarters in arrears and the payment is credited towards the first quarter that is in arrears — and I am pissed they did this themselves. Give ME the money and let me head down there. I have the tax bill. it only makes sense.
She should not be getting involved.
I also DO NOT want her getting involved in any of this. Guest status…and btw, where’s her rent, bro?
Making note of all of this. I still have no proof that there is oil in that tank, even if there is an oil guy doing a repair on his furnace.
