For this story! I so wish you all could shut your eyes to truly get the visual of the story I am about to tell you, but that wouldn't work out so well with you reading the story and all. So, take a minute to breathe and clear your head so you are ready to
First and most importantly, WE CLOSED! Hallelujah! Amen! Praise the Lord! The Molly Lou's are moving on up. The children are being dropped off with Molly Lou sister and Mr. Molly Lou has already been painting at the new crib.
Ok...second, and a really great part of the story. We were supposed to close at 2:30 but it had to be moved to 4:30. Why you ask??? Because the moving van (YES, she STILL had too much stuff in the house after a 3.5 week closing time and then the closing getting delayed a week) that was packing up the rest of her stuff decided to dump all of her belongings that were in the moving truck already all over the driveway. Yes, that is correct...all "interesting one's" things were sprawled ALL OVER THE DRIVEWAY after she and the moving man had a screaming match in the driveway because she didn't have the funds to pay the moving man. RIGHT. So, interesting that this happens at 2:00 pm and the closing is set at 2:30, you are 20 min. from the attorney's office and your clothes and junk are now spread around the driveway like you are having a yard sale on Thursday afternoon. I have closing moved to 4:30.
I meet Mr. Molly Lou at the attorney's office and the "interesting one" followed him. Ok...time to really concentrate. What were your bets on what she would be wearing? We totally should have started a pool for this because someone would have been rich.
The woman shows up in a spaghetti strap tank top with the Connecticut sized boobs hanging out and VS plaid PAJAMA bottoms with "PINK" on her bum. She accessorized with old flip flops and a RED claw clip just stuck in her head. (For those of you who don't remember she is 60 years old, leathery brown skin, 6 boob jobs, wavy hair down to her bum, and the first time we met her she had her g-string hanging out of pajama bottoms and her belly button ring was visible...how is this for SC high class.)
Another tidbit, she didn't bring her purse or driver's license to closing, so she got really mad when she found out she couldn't get her check today without. After learning this, the attorney came out to formally introduce himself and meet us. "Interesting one" was so peeved about the check bit that she REFUSED to shake the man's hand. Hello? Are we twelve?
Then, during the closing she proceeded to get mad about the amount she was actually taking away from closing, the fact that she had to sit there, and after the attorney made her sign an agreement that we were giving her until noon tomorrow to have all of her #$^% out of the house, she proceeded to tell us how "ungracious" we have been to her and that she NEVER would have sold the house for this amount if she didn't have to. (Again, I am sorry, but if you don't sell it to me it will be taken next week.)
There are numerous other stories and if we could all sit at Starbucks, I would tell every last detail and include impersonations and wild hand motions...you just can't get the full effect in Blogland.
You can see a pic of the house here and perhaps catch up on any tidbits of the "interesting one" that I didn't include in this post. That offer still remains for all the fun, food, and drink you can take while helping to unload, paint, and move. I promise a good time. We'll expect you anytime.
