I Never Was Good At Math!

I don't claim to be a smart woman and I'm certainly not a rich one but two and two is not making four to me. We went to the ranch at 7:30 A.M. this morning. We were working all around the house but we didn't see hide nor hair of the renters . We did see one bunny rabbit scavaging for food. Five window unit air condioners running at full speed in the rent house. We got home at about ten A.M. and soon the phone rang. It was one of the renter girls wanting to borrow $30.00. They are going to drive fifteen or so miles from the ranch to our town to borrow $30.00 so they can drive back to our town tomorrow to pick up their check so they can pay the rent and the utility bill. Check? What check, five grown people and they don't work? Recently John has started hauling off their trash. Nice landlord, huh? When we lived out there I collected aluminum off the side of the highway, burned the paper (not on a windy day), and hauled the other to the garbage at a residence he owned in town. Good exercise for me and would be good exercise for them. Think I'm mean? I guess I am since I'm in my 70's and the parents in the rent house are in their late 40's. Sunday they drove about thirty miles to buy five ducks for $5.00 a piece. What is it about this picture I don't undertand?

LOL, sounds like you have some wonderful renters, Paula. I guess it's a sign of the times we live in but some people just take no pride in self reliance. By the way, you asked about the memorial tower in Aransas Pass...it was built in memory of all the Aransas men who were lost at sea while working in the shrimping business...there have been a lot. and the old school is named for Walter Noble.

Sounds like they just want to loafer, probably get a check of some sort free. Helen

Don't add up for me either...Wishing you and John a nice 4th of July weekend! Take care, Sheila

All of this adds up to why you are the Landlord and they are the renters. Know what I mean? People like that never get ahead. I sometimes wonder if they want to.
We got home last night. We had a wonderful time, but home does look good.

I don't have any sympathy for people who will
not work. Somedays I didn't enjoy getting up at
at 4:30am and getting to my job at 8:00, but I did it until 62 retirement. They need to get a job. You are right they are getting a free-bee
and as long as they get it they will not work.
I will get off my soap-box.

Some people will never amount to anything. That is really stupid. Have a nice quiet 4th. Wish mine could be but don't think it will. Lincoln is allowing the loud big fire works this year. I heard one go off at 6 this morning.Oh well they could not enforce the law when they allowed only small fireworks. This way the mayor says it will be easier for the cops to keep order.

Super-academic math I suck at, but with business math I do very well. They are losers..;0.
