karma wins

"Psycho neighbor" is in jail! Is it wrong of me to delight in this? Because I can't help myself.

I'll spare you the lengthy story of how she got the name, but trust me, she's a fucking psycho. She made all the neighbors miserable. For some reason, we were always her primary target, though. Anyway, she moved a few miles away two years ago but kept ownership of the house next door to us and rented it out to some unsavory tenants. After evicting two such tenants in a row, she finally put it on the market... right when the housing market collapsed. It's been sitting unsold and vacant for several months now.

The man commented today on how odd it was that she'd let the yard get so overgrown. Sure it's vacant, but despite her psycho-ness, she always kept a tidy yard. We were surprised she hadn't come by to mow or hired a service to do it, especially while she's still trying to sell it. So the man decide to check up on her.

About a year ago we found the online court records database for our state and we did what everyone does when they get easy access to public records — look up everyone you've ever known to see who's had a DWI, been involved in a lawsuit, etc. During these searches we discovered that psycho neighbor had a rather long history of suing people. It seemed at any given moment she had at least three lawsuits going and she won about half the time. So the man has been periodically check up on her cases over the past year (mostly, I think, so we could get outraged about every new lawsuit).

Today he looked up her court records again to see if there was anything new and discovered a bankruptcy filing. Well that certainly explained the unkempt rental property. She'd cashed out major equity on it in order to buy her current house and with the property values dropping so much in the past year, she was obviously in over her head. That alone was cause for some glee (seriously, the woman is pure evil), but it gets better...

Apparently, she was involved in a car accident 13 days ago in which she not only failed to stop, but actually attempted to elude police in a 90mph chase. Further, she tried to back into the cop once she did stop. There was a massive list of charges against her including 1st and 2nd degree assault against a police officer.

So she's currently in the county lock-up still awaiting someone to scrape up $7500 to bail her out (too bad she sued her own family members before — I'm thinking they're not so inclined to help). In the meantime, her car has been impounded, she's in the middle of bankruptcy and she's got two rental properties and a primary residence on the line. I suspect she's going to lose everything.

Would I have ever wished for her to lose everything? Nah. That thought never even crossed my mind. In fact, for all the hell that woman put us through, we always took the high road — never provoked, never engaged. But if all that bad karma she's been putting out there for years is finally coming back on her, I think it's okay to enjoy it.

Hey guess what I had for dinner tonight... meat pie! We went to this pie place and had dinner pie (I have a BBQ pork pie) then desert pie (apple crumb). It was awesome.

I like pie. Anyhoo, this is just the sort of story about the crazy people that makes me want a fully-loaded XDM close to hand at all times...

LOL. Yeah maybe it's best if you don't have a loaded XDM next to you :P

You're right. What am I thinking? A Krinkov with a 40 rounder attached would be far better...

If there's one thing I believe in it's Karma.

Gotta watch that Karma! It'll come back and bite you in the ass every time and when you least expect it. I keep trying to warn a certain person in my life that but they just won't listen.

Sounds like your neighbor has racked up a lifetime's worth of bad karma. She'll probably come back as bug or something equally unpleasant in another life.

Maybe you should read this story to that person!

As long as it doesn't come flying or crawling into my house, that sounds pretty good ;)

That's a good story. At least you won't have to worry about her doing something else crazy for a while. We like to think Karma really does loop back around, sometimes it seems to. But then a big monkey wrench comes crashing through the window when I see bad things happen to really good people. Then it's like "Wtf? What happened to their good Karma??"

Life is full of bizarre twists and turns. No question. I've been very lucky so far. (fingers crossed)
