Who’d “BELIEVE” me, anyway? [Pt. II]

To: [erroneous discharge]

Dear [errata]:

Sorry about the jumpiness. I have no-one else to ask, though, so I figured I’d risk looking like an ass, and ask you:

(1.) I’ve been evicted (in 2007) w/o being in arrears, having lost my job (as far as they knew), nor on the basis of any complaints from neighbors and/or the landlord;

(2.) My great-aunt Jeanne died the very next month, having promised a “rude awakening” in re: her 50% ownership of the property (the “camp”) up at Schroon Lake that all the rest of the relatives presumed was their right to use, not hers. (My great-uncle, a two-star general whom I never met, owned the other 50%, and left it to his son(s) upon his death in 2003). I have been told by “Harry” (I’ll call him my “step-father”, thanks) that she left it to “me” and “me and [his three siblings].” Also, he told someone else, “he had NO RIGHT to it — she’s MY aunt!” She read Snoopy to me as a kid, and had no-one else to leave the 50% to, to spite the lot of them. That one’s not to hard to figure out, but, obviously, I haven’t seen the will — nor do I know if “Harry” has put freakin’ WHITE-OUT on it, or what.

(3.) “Harry” thought MY signing myself into bankruptcy was a “great idea” (since I’ve “always had bad credit” — you know, like getting a $12K Platinum Visa with an 8% when I was unemployed, as a result of paying double-down on my student loans for two years and upping my credit score considerably). Since items #1 and #2, “Harry” has commandeered my mail (forwarding it — including my U of C alumni magazine; his address on the label) — and, lo and behold, my accounts are at $0 when I checked via a free credit-report service via the internet. He & “Patty” (“step-mother,” and, yes, I have a “step-sister,” too — she didn’t like me having a girlfriend when I was younger, don’t you know), have decided to “help me out” with two weekly transfers of $100 and $150 each, allowance-style, while I live in a tent, “Occupy”-style, and appear to all the world as the incompentent, disenfranchised, friendless person I (apparently) am. (Do you SEE WHY???)


(1.) I’m curious about suing “Bluestone & Hockley”
(2.) I don’t doubt for a minute she left it to me, though I have no clue how to transact selling the camp and claiming my 50% (after taxes, natch); and
(3.) I’d like to pursue taking EVERYTHING “HARRY” HAS THAT’S LIQUIDATABLE!

(Needless to say, though, this needs to be done subtley, piecemeal, and on the sly — without the two weekly transfers, I starve!)

Any advice/commiseration would be appreciated! (Sorry for any “raw-nervey”-ness in any previous messages … )


P.S. Congrats on the brat. I’m sure Grisel will be thrilled to have someone to teach/play Canasta to/with/etc.
P.P.S. Didja see that article in “Newsweek,” a while back? Pfizer has NEVER HAD any “exceeding placebo-level” test evidence for ANY of their, uh, “products.” (Can you say … “CLASS ACTION”? Why, I’m sure YOU can, right, [embolism extraordinary]!)
P.P.P.S. Caesar’s not really a punk-ass bitch. Stop hitting him so hard when he “smart-mouths” you; he might start to cry!
