Well, our very bad tenants appear to have moved on.
Alan was over there today and reports that most of the furniture is gone and a whole lot of crap remains.
As he was describing the fun that awaits us, it occurred to me that I've been taking entirely the wrong attitude to the kids who refuse to grow up and the parents who allow them to remain at home long after their "best by" date.
So if any parents of untidy, irresponsible, semi-grown children are reading this, THANK YOU!
Thank you for letting them stay with you and mess up your house. Thank you for letting them not pay you any rent, instead of turning them loose on us. Thank you for putting up with the noise and the parties and the drinking.
I appreciate it. I really, really do.
