    My cousin lost his leg 4 days ago.
    He lived i an upstairs condo. And His Landloard has forcer him
    to move, But He found one on the ground floor for him.
    Is that being kind. Or being a bitch.
    I'm taking my trailer ove in the Morning and moving Him.

    Giving the word "forced" ... I vote bitch.
    If your cousin preferred to remain in his second floor unit, it seems a little insensitive of the landlord to further inconvenience him and expect him to move. :uhh:

    I'm sorry to hear about your cousin, btw. It's hard to imagine how tough that would be. Hopefully he has a supportive group of friends and family to help him out, especially during the transition. Sounds like your help moving him is a good start. :tup

    I could see many reasons why it was meant in a helpful and compassionate way. Is he a slumlord, or an educated and compassionate human being who recognizes that helping him find a first floor living space is a better business plan than building an elevator. My first thought is that he's being caring, but I get myself into trouble with that rosy view all the time. LOL.

    Thoughts and prayers to your cousin.

    He does have good friends.
    Even His boss came to the Hospital and told him
    to come back to work and they would send a cart out
    to his car to get him.
    The landlord said he didn't have liability insurance
    so he moved him downstairs.

    The insurance issue is understandable.

    .... Ah... The "I" word. :eyes

    Thank you mel, I was afraid you were gone for no good reason.
    And I'm begenning to think it is "caring" But i don't know Him.

    Well, I'd like to think that I don't do things for "no good reason."

    As for your cousin, I think how HE feels about it/sees it will say a lot. Is he offended by the move? Or is he appreciative?

    I really thought it was an issue, but now I tend to think of it as a favor.

    First floor would seem more convenient for your cousin, but that's his call. :)
