    It's in Folsom, which is not far from me. I should be nice and tell that guy I'll help him sell that crap on ebay for a small cut of the money. Probably take years! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    What he needs to do is secretly start taking stuff out of the boxes and listing it on ebay (leaving empty box in its place). Then tell his mom about the great "deals" he found on ebay for her. Collect the money from a PO Box and mail the items back to her. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Best thing about being unemployeed for a year.... you sell all your [darn]!

    Seriously though, that guy needs to give his mom a weeks vacation and have an auction before she comes back. Then welcome her to a cleaned house, with furniture thats usuable, open windows, a new tv and computer and hand her a roll of cash and say start over! Because she does have a problem... I think My dad is about the same way with rebates from the computer stores... BUT ITS FREEEEEEEE after rebate... we MIGHT use it one of these days /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I wonder if technology making us more enabled has also made us more empty.
    I think this is also a form of depression, and the junk is an attempt to fill a void.

    16% of Americans suffered Depression in 2003. Probably more, I suspect myself and plenty of people I know have been in depression without knowing it or being included in a statistic...

    All in all, though, if I were the kid that lived there, holy frikkin crap, I'd be going nuts selling the stuff on Ebay...

    my neighbor's house is actually worse than that( i swear to god).i think she supplies furniture for border jumpers,there is a small path through her entire house about 18inches wide. some white dudes cut the lock off her garage about 3 years ago and to a bunch of stuff in some vans. but the ultimate pack-rat shrine goes yo my friend tim's dad.they have a two car garage that you can't even open the service door on because there is so much crap.the alter to this shrine is a 66 charger thats been parked in the same spot of that garage for THIRTY ONE YEARS /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif. WTF?? when tim told me last year i laughed for hours,i kept picturing a bunch of people kneeling on mopar floor mats bowing towards the door. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifto /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    Screw eBay and screw sending the mom on a vacation. Knock her out with some drugs and just empty the damn house into a very large dumpster sitting outside the house! Thats just pathetic! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    When mom awakens, tell her the house was robbed and let it go from there. She will never be able to name off every little item to the po-po. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
