Caveat Emptor

Posted 02-19-2009 at 07:57 AM by stevec

I've been gone a while I guess, although sometimes I've barely noticed the passage of time, while other times it has seemed like an eternity. I'm not even sure why I'm here again, or posting anything to a blog I haven't used in well over a year. I suppose maybe because I don't have anyone to talk to in the real world, I need to get these things out of my head somehow.

Things have not been so good over the last year and life generally seems hard, tiring and even just a little pointless sometimes. Ever since I moved home a little under a year ago, trouble and even the threat of injury or worse have never been far away. Within 3 months of moving to my new place, I had moved out and put it back on the market where nobody, and I mean nobody is even looking at it. I'm paying £400.00 on a mortgage, £79.00 local taxes, £45.00 on electric/gas, £50-something on insurances and god knows what else on somewhere I'm not even living.

Why? Because I live in a building full of scumbags. I live under people who party constantly and as I found out recently, are protected by a local drug dealer and nutter who even the local authority will not touch (their words, not mine). I've been told to fall into line, or I will be "removed like the last c*nts that caused trouble were". I mean if it was just one idiot threatening me I'd smack him, but this guy can seal my fate and have 10 of his pals swear they were with him when it happened. In short, if I do anything I'm dead.

Health as a result has taken a nosedive, but I'm not inclined to go into all of that crap here. Suffice it to say, I'm not in good shape.

Meanwhile, the house is leaking £'s like a burst pipe, which if it hasn't already done so, will render it unsalable when I don't have enough money to cover the shortfall between mortgage and market value. I can't live there, can't sell it and can't do anything about the reasons it's such a foul place to live.

Basically I'm fucked.

    It's nice to see you here again Steve, just a shame about the circumstances (to put it mildly!)
