and now I'm done...

Good Lord the drama.
I could seriously use another girls weekend now!
So my fabulous, to good to be true buyers decided to try to screw me over 2 days before our scheduled closing date.
After:
one round of stressful tears
2 One Hour conversations with the buyer, the realtor and the lawyer
one conversation with my very knowledgeable Col friend
6 200mg of ibuprofen
one trip to the dentist
flying solo with 4 kids & all their activities & the stress of that alone
& one really strong cocktail
I decided to tell the buyer to go f@&# himself.
So the short & skinny is:
I've lost the place that I most love and will never return to (as it stands now)
I'm taking all the furnishings with me that they wanted.
I'm willing to NOT sign in 2 days and NOT close.
They will agree to MY terms or I'm NOT closing in 2 days.
I'll find another buyer. period.
f@&# 'em.
Even my realtor knew enough about me to tell the other realtor that "you don't really wanna f@&# with her. She's got enough balls to pull the plug on this closing."
& guess what????
I do and I did!
So after I packed, putty, patched & painted the walls...
I unpacked, rehung, reorganized and reset all the furnishings back to their proper spot. And after today, I repacked and they can be forever sorry that they f@&# with me and they won't receive the reputty, repatch and repaint the wall kind of treatment....
cause this MAMA is not up to bullshit like treatment.
I'm so done. Done. Like never before kind of done.
How dare they pretend to be one person in front of me and my kids and then try to stick it to me in their best *cultural* way 2 days before we close.
I am ridiculously fair and very loyal, but don't try to stick it to me 2 days before closing on a house that NOBODY will ever love like me and act like you are doing me a favor.
I just wouldn't go there with me...just sayin.
Apparently somebody forgot to tell the buyers that this chica doesn't do drama.

My hubby has had to blow up deals on numerous occasions for the very same reasons...sometimes it's just the principle of it. You did the right thing. Someone else will buy your beloved home.

t~ said...

Thanks Marsha, I feel very good about blowing up this deal...for me, it's all about principle. We'll see how it plays out tomorrow...it'll be one day before closing...

Lindsay said...

sorry you're having to deal with such unnecessary garbage over this. like you say, your being principled and fair. it shouldn't be too much to expect other people to be the same.

Randi said...

I am sorry that happened. Some people just don't have any principles.

Kayce said...

ugg! sorry that crap landed on your door step but I'm loving the way you're slamming the door on em! Hold tight and hang in there. HUGS!!

Catherine said...

You did the right thing! If they were already messin' with you then they'd lead you on for years to come and promise things but not carry them out. As hard as it is right now, I'm sure you'll be thankful in the long run. ((hugs))

michelle said...

you know... always seems to be that the best things are more worth all the pain and "yuckiness" after they are completed. SUCKS that those have to happen before you WILL get there!

Sandra said...

You did the right thing. I'm only sorry you had so much on your plate!

Briana's Mom said...

My mouth just dropped to the floor. I cannot believe they tried to sc@ew you so close to closing. Wow. I'm so sorry.

I'm so sorry this happened to you, that totally sucks!! What a-holes, what is wrong with people these days, it seems like no one knows how to act with decency...!! What about keeping your home and renting it out, then you could write it off as a "Loss" at tax time if it doesn't rent and if it does rent, you can keep it and have some $$ towards the mortgage each month? Here people seem to do that alot, keep the house, if they can afford to and rent it out. I would talk to an accountant if I were you, and see if this if do-able...!!

Anyways, you did the right thing and good for you!!

So sorry! I have to admit that I was thinking this buyer seemed "to good to be true" but I didn't want to post it thinking I sounded like debbie downer! Hope everything works out for you and your family ~ bummer!

What???????
I hope you find a really nasty rusty nail and hang his testicles from a high point on the wall near the entry way so he can look at them again when he walks in to his new house!

Tawni said...

I'm so sorry...and, I am so glad you're no one to mess with. And although it's not possible, and I know it won't help, but can I tell you how bad I ache to buy your house and love it like you do?...ache to. Seriously. Naples...sigh. I've got to get out of here - somehow.

~Kristen said...

Gawd... people just suck.
I'm Sorry T :(

Rick and Ellen said...

I am so sorry you ran across such a jerk!! Carma will eventually bite him in the butt. Better he revealed himself before closing so you may know the truth than after closing and then he showed his true colors. Just stinks there are so many rude people!! I am glad you are going to stick it to him!!

Janet said...

OH NO! That is awful! I can't imagine....after ALL THAT? Whoa. I would be a mess. I hope you can find someone HONEST to buy your house!!!

Diana said...

OMG..I am so sorry..accepting to leave then thinking you can leave but "come back" when you want and then this is so not right. He knew the attachment you and your family have to your home and neighbors. What a @$$!!
Hugs

cheekyradish said...

Hang tough- a 'decent' buyer exists! Maybe look into the rental thing if at all doable. Then it's there waiting for you! Good luck~

kris said...

What a jerk!!! So sorry you have to go through this! I really hope it all works out the way you want it to! Good Luck!!!

Steffie B. said...

Sorry you had to go through this......but you sure showed them your "set" that's for sure....you go girl....and I hope the drama just goes away! ;)

As a Realtor for 30 years (15 of which owning my own company) I cannot tell you how many of these types of closings that I have had to deal with. That is why I am so done!! I am reinventing my life as we speak.

Best of luck and let me know if you need advice...I am just a facebook shout away!

Puts me in mind of the song Big Balls in Cow Town...I think George Strait did a version. I don't know if I mentioned, but good friends owned a restaurant in Bonita Springs and had to shut it down due to the economic slowdown...they relocated to Savannah. Hang in there! Sending juju your way.

Melinda said...

I am so sorry you are having to deal with all of this! It is hard enough to leave the home you love without having to deal with this additional stress! I am hoping it all works out!

meme said...

So sorry. Prayers for happiness....soon.

Four Times The Chaos.... said...

UGH! That is unreal. I'm so sorry. At least you stuck it to them...and didn't give in to the BS. Good for you :) I'm dealing with adoption drama so I am with you in the "over it" department!

Debbie said...

Well, if he does indeed come through with the sale, he might consider hooking up with the old BOD sounds like he would fit right in with that awful crowd!! Sorry you had to deal with so much garbage!!! Hope all is better now!!!
