The Linn County Sheriff's Office just stopped by. A little unnerving, seeing a deputy at your door. Anyway...He says we are being garnished.. Apparantly some sue happy dude has decided that the trailer park that we live in owes him about $750 for some reason. He's suing them for that amount. So, somehow SOMEBODY decided that OUR money that we pay the trailer park needs to go to this person. We haven't paid our lot rent for the month of June yet, we were going to do that today after work, and the deputy said to mail the rent to an address on the papers I got instead of going up to the office. I don't know how WE got picked to be the lucky ones to pay off this guy, maybe random pin the tail on the schmucks that live here, but whatever. I am definitely keeping all my receipts and papers and stuff, and I guess if the trailer park has any questions THEY can call the Sheriff's office. And no, I don't know the guy suing. We have lived here for 2 years, we are buying the place from a private seller. His first name is the same as the suer, but we are keeping up on the payments, and we won't be done with that til sept or so, unless mr. seller is using an alias, but I doubt it. He wouldn't be suing the park, anyway, he'd be suing us. Why the park hasn't coughed up the $750 themselves, I don't know. Wait, yes I do. They're so cheap, they've probably been ignoring him for years, and figured he wouldn't do anything about it. Well, he did. Congrats to us for having to get involved in crap that isn't our business and we know NOTHING about. We have until the end of September to get this resolved, and two or three months of paying our lot rent (about $320) to the Sheriff's office to calm down all parties involved. Ugh. I feel a headache coming on. At least it wasn't anything we personally did, so I'm not too worried. Still, my first thought, and still kinda is on my mind...is...WTF???? Yeah. rant done.
