So my little world just got flipped upside down, and I'm not dealing well! My brother, who claims to be a "recovering" alcoholic, recently got himself into a real sh!tstorm of trouble. He's married with two kids, his wife is a bit of a pill popper and alcoholic as well. So during a drunking night, he ends up punching his wife in the mouth and goes to jail for felonious assualt. He claimed that he was asleep and she woke him up by punching him in the face. He throws a wild punch and connects and knocks out a tooth. So with the restraining order, he needed a place to live..guess what single brother that owns his own home ended up with him?? Yeah, me. If that's not bad enough, because alcohol is more important, his truck gets repo'd (no big deal he doesn't have a license because of a dui anyhow). They get evicted from the house they were trying to buy through a land contract...oh, and he lost his job because of no call no shows (drunken stupors seemed to be a bit more important). She then serves him with divorce papers. But through this whole thing, he's not saying much about the poor kids that have been raised in a sh!tty household, with drunken parents that were an absolute mess! Now, wouldn't you want to try and get on your feet after all this? He has decided that he's not going to get a job because when the divorce starts if he doesn't have a job then he won't have to pay her any money, and besides he hopes to get full custody of the kids! Yeah, this makes total sense to me too, not really. Oh, he get's his license back in a month, and because i have two vehicles (my '75, and my daily driver) he won't need to get a car real quick (????). Not a chance in hell, i'm hesitant to let him borrow my mountain bike! The other day he asked me to pick him up a few packs of cigarettes, because he's got no money (remember he lost his job?). I don't smoke! Last night i came home to my computer broken, it was working when i went to work, he was home smoking all day and using my computer (on dating sites and make quick money sites), yet he claims he had nothing to do with it! The wireless card on the side of the computer was snapped in half! i had to go and drop $70 on a new card, i now have a password on my computer and it may just go to work with me! I'm sure my grammer is horrible, but I really needed to vent! I want him out of my house, but where is he going to go ya know?? I figure I'll let him to until feb. then he's going to have to start paying rent or.....I dunno, find another place that will let him live for free and buy him cigarettes?? Good god I want my boring little life back!!! Sorry to go on...just have to get it off my chest!!
