I'd like to know where Winston is, but even if I could stand to ask, he'd just lie to me.  All he ever did was lie.  There are days when I'm still amazed I was SO stupid, and fell for his bullshit.


:-P  Some times, I learn really really slowly.  He was one of those times.

Have I *ever* mentioned how much John's honestly played into why I fell in love with him?

ETA-  Winston is the dog.  The ex is the one who lies.  ;-)

So, it's been over five months since we moved out of the rental house in Jarrell. We STILL haven't gotten our deposit back, and I've gotten almost no response to my inquiries. I'm tired of it, and I finally feel good enough that I'm doing something about it. When I'm feeling *RAWR*, do not irritate me.

Certified Mail- Return Receipt Requested

Re: Demand of Security Deposit

As you know, my husband and I gave you a security deposit when we leased your property at {address} on 15 Nov 2008. We vacated the house on 15 Nov 2009. As of this letter, the security deposit has not been returned, nor has an itemized receipt been provided stating any incurred charges. I have requested an explanation several times, and have gotten little or no response.

At this point, I am demanding the return of the entire security deposit in certified funds. Please see below for explanation. I have enclosed a copy of the check, showing the amount of the security deposit. I am requesting the deposit be returned IN FULL no later than five (5)business days after the receipt of this demand letter.

According to Texas Property Code Section 92.109, I have no choice but to assume you have acted in bad faith.

§ 92.109. LIABILITY OF LANDLORD. (a) A landlord who in bad faith retains a security deposit in violation of this subchapter is liable for an amount equal to the sum of $100, three times the portion of the deposit wrongfully withheld, and the tenant's reasonable attorney's fees in a suit to recover the deposit.
(b) A landlord who in bad faith does not provide a written description and itemized list of damages and charges in violation of this subchapter:
(1) forfeits the right to withhold any portion of the security deposit or to bring suit against the tenant for damages to the premises; and
(2) is liable for the tenant's reasonable attorney's fees in a suit to recover the deposit.
(c) In an action brought by a tenant under this subchapter, the landlord has the burden of proving that the retention of any portion of the security deposit was reasonable.
(d) A landlord who fails either to return a security deposit or to provide a written description and itemization of deductions on or before the 30th day after the date the tenant surrenders possession is presumed to have acted in bad faith.

Acts 1983, 68th Leg., p. 3641, ch. 576, § 1, eff. Jan. 1, 1984.

First and foremost-  I don't CARE who started it.  I'm not interested in hearing playground whines about "He did it first!"  SHUT UP. 

Now, are you listening?  Because I'm only going to say this once.

You, yeah you...the one putting politician's family members in the newspapers, the one publishing the address of a politician (except it wasn't) and encouraging people to "drop by" to give a protest that "pesonal touch," the one advocating ANY type of violent action because you disagree with someone else's veiw point....STOP THAT SHIT.  I'm not kidding.  Don't look at me and say it was just "hypothetical," or that you didn't *really* mean it. 

JUST STOP it.  STOP encouraging your followers to commit acts of violence because you disagree with a political party.  JUST STOP.  In case you're wondering, that kind of stuff is what they do in crappy third-world countries.  You know, those crappy third-world countries my family members have been to in order to try and get the locals to STOP THAT SHIT and to understand that really, threatening families and blowing shit up is NOT an okay way to get your point across.  Seriously, I've been part of a group trying to convince people that really, blowing up opposing newspaper offices is NOT the way to shut them up.  You think that shit's funny or effective or the right measures in "desperate" times?  FUCK YOU.  It's not.  It's wrong, no matter what side of the political spectrum you fall on.  STOP THAT SHIT.  It's how terrorists get their way. 

Yeah, I said it.  Fuck you.  I'll stand up and say that if you threaten elected officials or their families, or their homes with VIOLENCE, no matter why you do it, you've started down a dark and terrifying road that leads to the same whacked out bullshit in those crappy third-world countries we get to visit and terrorism.  And terrorism in the name of your sacred cow is still terrorism. 


You don't like what someone's saying, especially an elected politician?  Fine.  Goody for you.  You want them out of office?  Great.  Get your ass to work and make it happen.  Legally, morally, ethically.  Get stumping, tell me why your guy will do it better, will do it the way that will best serve this country, why your guy is BETTER than the guy in there now.  Don't just tell me he's a big bad meanie poo poo head and he deserves to DIE.  STOP THAT SHIT.  Seriously, threatening their families?  Did you miss that how the fucking Taliban keeps people in line?  Are you fucking serious?  You think you're RIGHT when you pull that stunt???  STOP THAT SHIT.

I DON'T CARE if you're really mad about FITB lesislation or FITB party platform.  I don't CARE.  Threatening people with harm, calling them things like "a dead man," or implying that violence is okay because they're on the wrong side of the political specturm than you IS NOT OKAY.

And before any of you assholes tell me I'm not patriotic, or that I want America to fail, or that I want the terrorists to win, let me ask you how many times YOU'VE gone to one of those shitty third-world countries lately.  In my family, we're going on six deployments.  So, unless you're able to look at me and tell me you've done more than a total of five YEARS over there, just SHUT UP and take your "unAmerican" bullshit rhetoric and shove it.

I'm about as patriotic as they come and I love my country with a fierce pride.  A lot of my fellow countrymen are pissing me off though.


No love,

ETA:  When I say "my family has deployed" I mean my husband, his best friend, our housemate, one of my best friend's husband, and me.  My husband is currently deployed to Afghanistan, his best friend is in Iraq and I'm heading there at the end of the year-ish for the second time.  Alex recently returned from a tour in Iraq and is probably heading back soon.  Our housemate was in the initial invasion. All told, we're actually up over eight total deployments, and the better part of eight years total.  That says *nothing* about the extended family and friends who have supported us during the deployments.  We could not do what we do without those here at home doing what they do.

Oh, good.

I snarked something, that well...probably shouldn't have been snarked. 

I put my foot in my mouth, although I'm glad it spawned some interesting discussion and some IKA.  That being said, I really don't *like* being a bitch, but I wasn't as careful as I could have been in expressing my frustration, and so...I offended and hurt some folx.  I'm working on fixing that, but damn...this is one of those days I really wish the comm rules didn't forbid deleting a post, yanno?
soldiergrrrl: (Cue  maniacal laughter)
All I can do is laugh. Because otherwise, I'll actually get upset.

soldiergrrrl: (angry bunny)
Especially ones that think it's funny to get on a trampoline at 0800 on a Sunday morning with the express intention of teasing our dogs over the back fence. 

Oh, how do I KNOW they were specifically teasing our dogs?  Because when we brought the dogs inside, the kids got off the trampoline and went in their house.

And there was an adult standing there WATCHING THEM.
