I ran an add saying that I had an unused cottage available for someone who wanted to get some garden beds going and cut pathways around the property. No rent. In twenty months, the couple who moved in, have done nothing that I couldn't get done in a good week. They just sit there day after day or they go on extended vacations. My place has become a pit stop. They run around getting money from parents and the American welfare system and drop in occasionally to unload more garbage gleaned at junk sales. Every neighbor is a little mad at me for bringing parasites to the community. They have borrowed tools, and sought help of all sorts but they never reciprocate.
