    A while back, my son Aaron, & his wife, Amanda moved into the house where they're currently living. The house belongs to Cindy, their Best Man's, (Kevin) mom.
    Kevin had lived in the house, which was a pig sty, but had plans to move nearer his work. So, the house was offered to Aaron with the intent that they were to buy the house. Kevin ( & sometimes his girlfriend) lived with Aaron & Amanda for 3 months until he got his act together, because his other plans fell through. Aaron & Amanda picked up all the costs since it was now theirs.

    Aaron's dad put in a new bathroom, the house has been patched & painted. Plans were being laid to do the kitchen as soon as the house was theirs. Looks really cute. They also have a loan for the purchase, pre-approved.

    Yesterday about 4pm, Aaron & Amanda were informed that Cindy sold the house to Kevin & Aaron & Amanda have 30 days to move. Anything structural missing they will be sued. Kevin also wants a key to their house. (they had the locks changed after he moved)

    So instead of moving here, they are going to hang their hats where mom lived, so they have some privacy, until they can find a place they can buy.

    This isn't the end of the world, but this is awfully disappointing to them, since this place has become home. And for a friend to betray you that way is even more hurtful. You just never know.

    thats messed up. At the least, they should bill Cindy for the home improvements they made.

    You'd think so, but NOTHING's in writing. Only studio equipment. And to top it off, Kevin called to borrow equipment a couple of weeks ago & has yet to return it. Apparently, that's how he found out the locks had been changed. He went to the house while they were at work.

    On the other hand, I think these things happen for a reason. Don't be surprised if you hear some really bad news regarding the house ie: termites, black mold, a tree crashing through the roof. Blessing in desguise maybe??

    Well another hard fact of life....True friends (the thread tile). Most people can count
    their TRUE friends on one hand and have fingers left over..True FRIENDS are indeed rare in life, despite what we would like to believe.
