Over the past several years, we have had several people really f us over. We had the "pastor" and his wife rent from us - they let a 2 month old baby die in the house (prosector said the baby had not been fed or even touched in 12-15 hours), they didn't pay us rent for many months, and they trahsed the place beyond repair. We had to declare bankruptcy over that one. Then there was the Christian business owner, who f-ed us for 30K (I talk about that in another blog). We are still trying to recover from that.
Now, the latest: on Tuesday, we helped a student of mine buy a car from a couple. I usually don't like to call people white trash, but these people would definitely fit the bill. He said that there was going to be a bit of smoke, because they had recently flushed the transmission, and fluid got on some pipe. Turns out, the transmission is just about dead, and we just paid $700 for a car that we can't drive. He isn't willing to give any portion of the money back. He KNEW what he was doing. He basically has screwed both us and my student (we paid for half of the car). I'm especially mad, because my student has had a really rough time of it lately, and this is proving to be a major straw on the camel's back for him. I'm the sort who will let people walk all over me, but when they hurt someone I care for, I freak.
I am just so SICK of people getting away with things like this!!! I know that if I try to take this guy to court, I'll be left trying to get the money from him, so what's the point? I have no faith in our justice system. I am so outraged right now that I am seriously considering revenge. I know all the crap about forgiving people, and how anger will eat you up, so you should just let it go, blah, blah, blah, but I am sick of turning the other cheek!!!!!!! I have gone through WAY too much at the hands of other people, and I want this f-er to pay!!! Every day I become more and more of a misanthrope, and it's because of sub-humans like this.
Any atheists on here have a perspective on this? When you can't take anymore of the crap people deal out, but you're an ethical person, what do you do!?!?!?! I've barely slept for 3 days, and I could just choke someone right now!
