Some karma has hit the in laws!!!

FIL finally called and took over responsibility for their phones.

It's costing them MORE than it would if they had just stayed on our plan and paid us!!!!!


This good news comes at a perfect time. I have literally been so upset the last couple of days I haven't been able to function. Anger and depression has set in. I have been unable to focus, keep calm with the kids and wh and just plain ready to throw in the towel.

This news doesn't really change things. We still owe on the plan and will most likely lose our phones again because of not being able to keep up with paying for all four phones, even after paying what I thought was a settlement to bring us up to date...

Also got news my parents had to have my aunt hospitalized yesterday. She will never be going home.

I'm just trying to make sure my kids birthday party goes off this weekend.

After that I'll let myself have a meltdown.

God bless you, that is a laundry list of YUCK. I'm sending you a virtual pedicure -- but if you can sneak out for a real one that would probably work better.

Don't have the money to spend on that lol. A virtual one is great though :)

Perhaps just an hour of quiet away from the house.

I dont know why things have gotten to me so badly lately. I'm not usually this angry all the time. I can't even cry. And that's not a good thing.

Despite the other bad news, I'm thrilled for you. One less stressor in your lives!

DragnHeart posted 7/23/2013 13:46 PM

Yes! One less thing to worry about

As for my aunt I am actually happy about it. Ya that sounds weird but here's the thing:

My mother (65) has three older sisters. The two oldest ones both widowed. Lived alone.
Oldest sister (call her aunt 1) has a son who lives in another province. Her neighbour was supposed to be helping her. Instead, was taking her money and my aunt was found unconscious in the house. She's now in a nursing home.

Aunt 2 (who went into the hospital yesterday) has been slowly deteriorating. My parents and brothers have been going to see her weekly to make sure she has food and pay her bills (her hydro was shut off and she didn't know why the lights didn't work...). Yesterday she had a breakdown insisting she "go home" when she was home. My parents were called by her friend and they took her to the hospital. Doc feels she's no longer capable of remaining at home alone. least she is getting fed. Despite my family buying her food she wasn't eating well. We live over an hour away and even though my mom wanted her to move in with them she refused.

This is hard on my mom. She's tried to keep her sister at home but knew yesterday that it wasn't going to be possible. Getting old sucks!!!

I'm so glad your ILs are taking over their phones. Ones less thing on your plate.

I'm sorry to hear about your aunt, but I'm glad she will get the care she needs.

It feels good that a bit of karma has stung them.

Taking the plan into their name means FIL has to pay the main plan, then more to add mil phone then any extras they might want (depending on their main plan that could mean adding extra for long distance, data usage, voicemail and caller ID etc.).

He seems shocked to find out how much it is going to cost them.

Owell. If he wants the phones he'll pay it. If not he'll still have to fork out over $700 to pay off the phones.

That part is great. It's no longer a thorn in our side! Now to get them to pay for the last five months. If they want us out of their lives all they have to do is pay the bills for their phones then we won't ever speak to them again.
