Cursing out RY
I'm not proud of myself about this incident, but such is life.
With little money left to feed the yaks, we were selling everything we owned that we didn't absolutely need to take with us. Unfortunately very little of what we had was actually sales worthy. I managed to get $100 for the water tanks, $75 for the auger and $100 for the propane tanks. Way below what everything was worth, but we needed to sell it fast.
The a day or two after selling the propane tanks (which had taken up a huge piece of real-estate in the back of the pickup) CK wanted to get the last of his items from RY's house.
"I've been thinking I'd take back my water tank too." CK said. Everyone had wanted to buy my watertanks, and CK figured he could make a few bucks.
"One of RY/s water tanks is yours?"
"Yeah, and it'll really tick him off too." (RY hauls and sells water - which has actually become highly illegal lately, as the town wants to be the only ones in the water business..)
I arranged to help him haul it and borrow it for a few days, since now that I'd sold mine, I needed some way of bringing water up to the yaks.
After the deal with the landlady, RY was on my list of not-favorite-people. He wasn't there when we showed up, and his daughter P made the mistake of asking how I was doing. "Pretty bad," I told her. "I've got four yaks that are starving and RY owes me %650 and hay as well, and then he starts making harassing phone calls. Since P was one of the people who'd borrowed part of the money from Quantum.
Later that afternoon I ran up to the store and when I came back to CK's house, he told me, "RY called and he's really pissed off."
"Good. So am I."
"Then S called and she was crying and telling me, 'All the stuff we did for them, was worth more than $650."
"She seems to have amnesia'd all the stuff we've done for them, however."
"He says why are you telling P this stuff instead of telling him to his face."
I dialed. "You wanted to tell me to your face, I'm telling you to your face. I'm ticked off."
"What's this about owing you money?"
"You borrowed $400 from Quantum, S borrowed $200 and P borrowed $50. That was over a year ago, and then there's all the hay Quantum paid for that we never got.
RY had the balls to tell me, "Quantum told me I didn't have to pay you back."
If so, that was news to Quantum, since we'd already discussed that RY owed us the money and was probably never going to pay us back. "Umm no. If anything, Quantum told you not to worry about paying him back RIGHT THEN."
I then told him I was ticked off about the whole situation and if he wasn't going to hold to his word, then I really didn't have phone minutes to waste on him and that I really didn't appreciate him calling the landlady either.
Naturally he once again denied that.
Well I got it off my chest anyway. Even if I don't suspect it'll do any good.
