Excuse me ..... what?

The couple came today to take our old windows.  She is in her early 50's and talked about how all her prior boyfriends had six kids, her daughter has six, her step daughter has six.  She is on disability and can barely catch her breath, has a wheelchair, a scooter, and a power chair.  She is on pain meds for a previously broken back, had hips replaced, recent by-pass surgery, stents, and type 2 diabetes.
 
Their truck reeked of smoke and two different cigarette packs were on the dash along with a bag of candy.  She weighs around 300, and won't buy her bacon at my local meat market.  She only eats fresh slab bacon because the nitrates in smoked bacon are bad for you.

Well, bless her heart! She reminds me of my father in law. He spent the better part of the last 25 years 80 lbs overweight, drunk and sitting in a house so thick with second hand smoke the air looked blue. He's diabetic, has had bypass surgery and complains of his bad luck and how exercise just doesn't pay off. What?! Well, he played high school basket ball in 1968 and ran a marathon in 1982 and can't comprehend how someone as healthy as him could ever have such bad luck. Makes me crazy.

WOW !
Just glad you got rid of your windows.
I'll bet she has a business somewhere and will sell
your windows as is or for the frames and/or glass.
Enjoy your new windows and house painting.
I hope the rain will hold off for a day or two.

One thing I know for sure, remodeling is always more than you expect. You just never know, right? It could be worse....she could have brought 6 kids!

Oh my! Glad you can remove your listing once it's fulfilled.

Glad your windows are gone! We had a neighbor like that lady.

I hope you have a wonderful day, Marly!

That does not surprise me. the person who eats at a fast food place and orders two hamburgers ,large fries and a diet coke! Really Closer to home the person who has emphysema , heart disease, stents and all and still smokes and drink 6 beers a day- every day! If it weren't sad you could laugh! Glad she took your windows though.

shaking my head! I guess it takes all kinds.

She is probably a hoarder and those windows are going to get stacked up against something, never to be used again!

Afraid there's only more to come of that type...probably never worked much either (who would employ?)...we're seeing so many younger (18-30) headed in the same direction; entitled, not working, not being responsible for their health (we pay those bills, too)...and what's really frightening, they reproduce and can vote!

Guess all we can do is find things we enjoy, teach our kids responsibility, take care of our pets, homes, yards and put up privacy fences!

I did have a very positive and hopeful experience yesterday at our local Subway...two totally delightful high school kids working who were very polite, friendly and efficient, and when I mentioned they were a breath of fresh air and so happy to see them working there, they replied that they really loved their jobs!!

Thank you Chrie for that note of optimism, needed
more and more these days. What a regrettable state
your window lady is in, Marly...hope she wakes up and takes
steps to save her life.

I'm sure she is a victim and all her problems are someone else's fault that we are paying for. Makes my blood boil. OK. Off my soapbox and going to do some yard work.

My thoughts ... "Ignorance is Bliss". I just can't figure these people.

Oh dear....

A while ago when I went to lunch with a friend and while we were waiting to be seated I noticed the side dish one guy had at his place (his main dish looked like a humongous bacon cheeseburger) - a huge combo dish of fries and onion rings with cheese sauce and other toppings, basically a heart attack on a plate. And then I noticed his portable oxygen tank.

When I see very heavy folks in those scooters, I always wonder which came first, the chicken or the egg!

Good golly Miss Molly.

I don't think all the negativity about this woman was necessary. She took the windows off your hands and what she does with them now is her business. I was truly sorry to see how petty some of these remarks are. And we expect children not to bully each other.
