Before you go thinking "Why would she be saying that?!" let me fill you in.
When my great-gma died, my great aunt (her daughter) wanted me out of the house by Monday. We buried her on a Thursday!!!
But that's not the point. My dad (stepdad) said that I could live with him and that he was paying the rent for three rooms from this woman named Missy (we'll call her that).
This woman is sweet, loving, firm, and loves doing whatever she can for people. Unfortunately, she is also on disability, SS, and has just got her food stamps. She barely makes enough money, that goes for the money my dad, we'll call Peter, gives her - $1000.
So a few weeks ago, she and I went to a local gas station to get a treat. Missy then tells me halfway through the drive that dad not only didn't pay her in full, but gave her a bad check that put her account in the negative. Missy's bank has this strict rule of of charging $10 a day for her overdrawn fees. As of now, she owes them a little over $900 dollars, which includes the money that she still needs to pay for her bills.
"But he gave her the money, right???" FUCK NO!!! And I know this is a serious situation and I shouldn't be cussing, but this makes me angry on a personal level because I thought my dad had changed. He used to be so full of anger and would verbally (and sometimes) physically abuse me and my mom. Though he hasn't shown any physical altercations towards us, he still manipulates my brother into thinking that it isn't all his fault for a lot of things. He has this mentality where he thinks he's always right and he is the most arrogant and stubborn person I know.
Missy wanted to kick him out for this, because he has done this to her once before, but he ended up calling the cops on the way back home, of which they told her by law she can't kick him out unless she goes to court and gets a formal slip.
I'll be fine - I'm moving back to Texas because of this - and it seems dad has found a house to live in on his own, which gets me wondering 'if he has enough money to pay for a house, where's the money he owes her?'
So I'm just asking you to please help this woman out, because she really is someone who doesn't deserve this. I don't ever ask for much in real life, so this is new for me to do on my own, but Missy is such a kind woman who has been through a lot in her past and is just trying to get by.

and I thank every one of you for helping her out!
