Default Told my Sis-in-law to get a job

My sister in law is in closing in on 50 years old. Has never held a real, full time job for more than a year. For the last several years she has been working as a part time handy-man for cash. Lives in my guest apartment over our garage, rent free. Actually she's been accumulating unpaid rental debt for the past 8 to 10 years. Supposed to be paying us $500/month. On top of that my wife has been lending her sister roughly $1500-$2000 per month.

My wife has been telling her sister to get a job, pretty much non-stop for the past few years.

Well its hit a breaking point.

I unloaded today

Waiting for the fall out.

Good luck with that Bob.
What will happen with the plan for those two to rehab the house you bought?

Hope it all works out for the better.

Sounds like you and your wife have your own private welfare system. Sorry if I offend but that's the way this outsider sees it. Been there done that with our daughter.

That house is in progress of being rehabbed now.

S-I-L figured she's make enough to pay her expenses. By my calculations she owes my wife more $$$ than she will make on the house. And that is just what she borrowed in the past 90 days.

I avoid in-laws and outlaws as much as I can.

When inlaws turn into outlaws it gets really bad whether they're in jail or on the run. Either way you're an a$$hole!!
