by Sister Susie.
When I first started getting good money for my SO's, Gene, father of my son,
had just moved back home after a two month separation. He had left me with a
bunch of bills when we split up, so everything I was earning was just catch
up money and there wasn't much left over.|
When he showed up at the door I found out he had brought his brother, his brother's wife, and their 13 year old daughter with him. This was the second time they had come to live with us. His brother had already taken me for $3,000 before he ever even moved in with us the first time.
He was supposed to move here when Gene and I first met, and he found a truck up North that they just HAD to have for the construction company that I started for Gene. I sent the money, no truck ever appeared. Every weekend there was an excuse why the brother wasn't on his way down to Florida.
What does a sob story look like?|
What are the components?
What makes it so effective?
The theory is that if you sob loud enough that everybody will feel sorry for you and let bygones be bygones.
Here is a great example that really did drum up a lot of sympathy.
After a few weeks, I was told that I had to send up more money to register
it in the WIFE'S NAME. I said that I would only pay to register it in MY
name in Florida. That is when I was told that it didn't have a title.
Both brother and sister-in-law were not working and therefore could no
longer afford the rent at their house. You can't let homeless people
stand around at your front door, can you? I let them come in and they
made me agree to let them stay with me.
It took her 3 whole weeks to write ONE set of ten articles, and then they
came right back to us, stamped as duplicate content -- and because of her
laziness I was accused of plagiarism.
Gene's brother and sister in law said that would be too inconvenient for
them to do. No matter how I explained how desperate I was for a
break they just repeated that it was too inconvenient for her 13 year
old daughter to have to shower over there in the morning before school.
For five days they were ADAMANT that this just was not an option. So finally, I said, ok, then they could rent the house from my first husband, they could sleep there at night, and Gene and I would go home at night to use the generator and keep the pets. Immediately, Gene's brother told me that he and his wife had to 'talk about that'.
I didn't see what there was to talk about... you want a roof over your head, you have to pay rent. The only time you 'talk' about it, is if you're planning to skip out on it.
Meanwhile, while they 'talked' about it, they talked about going back to the plan to just shower there. I found it very interesting that when the other option was to PAY RENT, suddenly, now they were more open-minded about the idea of showering.
But the next day, after being told that they had to 'talk' about it, I woke up to find everyone sitting around watching TV and no 'talking' being done. There was no, "Susie, we've discussed this and..." It was basically a case of 'we're just going to ignore this problem until Susie figures out how to fix it."
What they finally said they wanted was for
the wife and daughter to move up to Gene and his brother's mom's house
two hours away, and for the brother to stay at OUR house with the
generator that I bought.
