Neither Barb nor Chris care if they ever pay off their debts. They're just trying to get what they want in the meantime and put off paying their bills as long as possible.I like how Chris and Barb think that paying later will be any easier than paying up front.
Actually, they don't think that, do they? They just want another month of storage, they don't care about paying.
hmmmm that might mean the insurance company barely gave them anything to store the hoard.I'm willing to bet that that's the total storage bill from the cleaners, not just a monthly bill for December. Chris is bad about mixing things up and misquoting stuff. If you divide $1600 by ten months, you get about $160/month which is a more sensible amount just to store the furniture.
Well..."Mmyeah, now that we Borrowed your hou - your house, may I borrow you Renee, love?".
I suspect there may be more to the story. Around here, you can rent a garage size storage unit from U-Haul for under $200 / month: $1,600 a month is definitely excessive. (Then again, how many units is their shit occupying?)^^^ I guess by "livable" I meant "granted an occupancy permit," or if that's not necessary in Ruckersville, "utility companies being willing to resume service."
$1600 in a lump sum is a lot for people who are horrendous with money management and whose monthly income is at most $3,000.
There must be an additional unit(s) not being covered by the insurance company. If State Farm was covering everything up until now, there's no way Chris/Barb would already owe $1600 just for one month.Well, this explains a lot of Chris lamentations about "bigger worries" and the sudden drop in price of the BMW.
Also isn't this some additional storage room Charb rented to accommodate the barbage that wasn't covered by the insurance company in the first place? I distantly remember someone saying Barb was holding on to the hoard against the insurance companies will.
Chris's tugboat is $1300 a month, and Barb gets social security and a small pension from her old job.Where did Bob pension and the go? I assume they'd be able use some of it to pay for it.
