Personal Responsibility

Apparently, my upstairs neighbor likes being a victim.

Somehow, she is the victim here because my walls are still wet and apparently, we're being irresponsible because we aren't taking care of the problem.

Point one: The water came from HER dishwasher.

Point two: We have no money. How are we going to fix things? We have one income, am borrowing money for Bratworse's education and am late with our monthly payments on bills.

Point three: We have no insurance and even if we did, we don't have the money for the deductible.

Point four: Since May 5th, we have seen her three times, and heard from her one extra time. She has responded to my messages by calling up OTHERS to dump her problem on, like the association.

Point five: She ASKED us not to approach the association and therefore we didn't. According to her, the offsite manager is a "bully" and therefore she didn't want to deal with him.

I've heard through the grapevine that she's trying to play victim, saying "I'm not the bad guy."

Well, lady, (and I use the term VERY VERY LOOSELY) when our tank leaked, over the course of a WEEKEND, we approached our neighbor 4 times to ask if there was anything else we could do. THAT is how you show responsibility.

AND, how is it that WE have to pay for damages YOU incurred?

Wonder if her worldview will change after a judge says that she IS responsible for the damages to my property and that because she told us not to contact the Association as well as make it seem like it WASN'T her fault that the dishwasher leaked (apparently her ex-boyfriend tried to fix it a month prior, due to leaking) so much so that her insurance (lousy as it is) denied my claim, that she has to pay for extra.

I bet her worldview would be akin to those of conservatives: Waaaah, it was rigged, the judge didn't like me, I'm a victim.

These are the same type of people who saw starving people in New Orleans taking food, and condemning them.
