About three weeks ago my sister had me watch her house because she went to Monterey. I was just kicking back and I decided to take a bath. She didn’t say I could but I figured it wouldn’t hurt anything. Well, I turned the shower handle and for some reason it was really hard to turn. I thought it was weird but I put pressure on and forced the handle. Then when I tried to shut the water off it wouldn’t go off. Water was pouring out and wouldn’t stop. So I had to call my sister in Monterey and explain the situation. She said go next door to her neighbor and have him look at it. He came over and shut the water off to the whole house. I really blew it but my sister didn’t get too mad. I was ready to pay for a plumber but my sister said I didn’t have to pay for it but it was going to cost her $900! Luckily my sister has a good job and makes good money but that was still nice of her to not make me pay.
Then just 5 days later she went fishing with her boyfriend and had me come over again to keep her cat company while she was gone. She had just bought a brand new matching set of nice dishes and bowls; an 8 piece set. I had used a bowl and I was washing it in the sink and it slipped out of my hands and fell on another bowl. It chipped the bowl, a big chip. I couldn’t believe it. First I wreck her shower handle and cost her $900 and less than a week later I wreck her new dish set. I was mortified. When I got home I wrote her out a check for a $100 and wrote her a letter apologizing and saying I wasn’t fooling around or anything it was just an accident. But the timing couldn’t have been worse. She called me Friday and told me thanks for admitting it and she understood it was an accident and she wasn’t mad. Whew, luckily she’s cool and nice. But man, two accidents in one week!
Honestly I get suspicious when things go my way for so long. I am not a pessimist but good streaks make me wonder.
Btw your sister sounds like an angel.
Omg…it’s a good example of Murphy’s law for sure. If something can happen it will but hang in there matey. I’m glad your sister has forgiven you. Shite happens. Way too much when your on an unlucky path!
Wow - it wasn’t your fault though - things happen.
Sounds like you had some pretty bad luck!
Glad your sister seems cool about it
You did the right thing giving her the 100 at least your conscience is clear for the accidents
These things happen
Sounds like you’re lucky to have such a caring and understanding sister. Accidents happen, I’m sure she’s fine with what happened.
You came through that without having a nervous breakdown @77nick77? I’m thinkin’ you’ve got a horseshoe wedged somewhere.
Uh, can I borrow it? After you’ve washed it off, of course.
I once locked myself out my sisters house because she had a Yale lock that locks behind you. I had to brake the window and open the lock from inside and make a police report so not to pay for damage, The landlord fixed the window at no cost.
When it rains it pours.
Your sister seems very cool by the way.
My sister told me to stop calling and texting her, and I haven’t heard anything from her in a month or two. My brother-in-law is still writing me via Post Office though. I have no idea if she’s dead or alive. You’re lucky to have your sister.
It was about me getting involved with the guy I was telling everyone about. She told me she can’t handle the stress it causes her.
She has a heart problem and goes into AFib. Whatever she hears is being filtered by her husband.
Agreed. I’m not going to publicly post about him anymore.
You can share what’s going on. I think people care about you and are just cautious.
But you are the one talking to him. And he is spending time with you. And there is no money involved or anything. So you should be fine. But use your judgement. I think just protect yourself and finances in any relationship.
I did send him my old iPhone I keep as a backup. It was $85 to ship it internationally express. The phone probably wasn’t worth what it cost to send. That’s all. It’s being returned to me as undeliverable per the US Post Office tracking.
He doesn’t seem too brilliant on what can be shipped to the country he’s in.
If he didn’t get it - he didn’t get your return address. So your personal info is safe. I think.
Man, you can’t win for losin’!!! That sucks. I have the same kind of luck often times
But I do know he makes you happy - its great to see you happy.
