Between the welfare mom comment, the screaming match, noise fights, and the fact that she comments over and over about the mom not being married with 3 kids/3 dads, we see how immature and judgmental this poster really is.

Her follow up posts are just as bad as the OP.

Shame on her. (And this isn’t her first appearance here: www.thedramaofdiaperswappers.wordpress.com/2009/12/10/and-yage )

Troublesome, RUDE neighbor and we don’t want to move! (http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=938428)

Troublesome, RUDE neighbor and we don’t want to move!

So if anyone has ANY ideas short of moving, I’m all for it!

The woman that lives upstairs from us is the picture of that *welfare mom* . Ya know, the one that has no husband but 3 kids from 3 different guys. New guys coming and going like her door is a turnstile.

Yeah, so anyway. She makes a TON of noise at night. We live in a *regular* apartment building with just 3 floors and she is on the second flr, we’re on the first, and the 3rd flr is empty. We tried living on the 3rd flr but couldn’t afford the increase in rent and we are happier on the first apart from her and her noise. In our lease is specifies that there is to be NO noise after 8PM to be considerate of your neighbors. Well, this *women* lets her kids tear around across the floor until like 10PM, meanwhile our kids are put to bed at 7PM. The very first night we moved here, she let her kids overflow the bathtub and our kitchen flooded and it destroyed our appliances! So our kids wake up from all the noise and you know what it’s like to try to get a cranky 16mth old BACK to sleep after being woken up!

So we’ve gone to her and asked her if she could keep it down after 8PM because our kids are waking up from the noise and we would like a little “peace and quiet” after a long day. My DH works hard, as do I, and we’d just like to have some quiet at night. Which isn’t too much to ask. Well she always has an excuse. Her kids are excited to see each other (one of her kids lives somewhere else ) or that she’s trying to get them to bed. She used to blame the noise on the 3rd flr people when they lived here, like we’re going to hear noise through 2 FLOORS! Right!

So a couple nights ago her *boyfriend* was putting together a $%#@# TV stand at 1:30 am in the @#$%% morning! Hammering away like it was the most natural hour to be doing that sh**!!

We have called and talked to the landlord a number of times about this and he does nothing it seems. Each night she is louder than the last, and whenever we try and talk to her she has an attitude. We think she had something going on the side with the landlord (he’s only like 33) but he’s married and maybe she’s blackmailing him. They are always flirty, but it’s not right for him to take her side. We are great tenants! My DH mows the lawn here for him, shovels the snow and salts the steps. He fixes things around and we are just generally good tenants to have. Always pay our rent on time and most times a week early!

So tonight, her kids were running around over our heads like every night and my DH gave a light bang on the ceiling to let her know it was getting loud. She proceeds to jump up and down on the floor to be a Bi#%^! So I went out into the basement which is the same level as our apartment and banged on my washer for her to hear the noise. (I think I broke my thumb )

So she comes out cursing and asking what the problem was, like she doesn’t know! I just couldn’t take it anymore and we had a shouting match back and forth. What would you do? I’ve tried everything I could think of.

We don’t want to move because we haven’t had much luck with apartments over the last 2 years. 2 places that we lived in foreclosed and we had to move 3 times in the past 2 years. We don’t want to uproot our kids again so any advice besides that would be great.

Thanks if you made it this far.

There is nothing wrong with asking about a transaction, or even worrying about being scammed, but there was nothing wrong with Elf’s post either.

Check out the OP’s responses to Elf, I think my Do NOT B/S/T list just grew by one.

Trade gone wrong WWYD?

Ok, so I did a trade with a mama on here. I did a custom crochet skirty for her in return for some mama cloth. She had great communication. I never asked to see pics because I figured that if you are going to offer a trade for your sewing skills for a *custom* crochet skirty then you must know what you are doing right? I requested a pic before she mailed it, and she sent a very blurry pic. I couldn’t see detail in the pic other than I was already disapointed with them. It wasn’t until I opened the package until I saw the stitching etc. they really are unusable. What would you do? How would you go about it?

ETA: Not to mention I was supposed to get 12 pantiliners and only got 10

The OP, justmeandmy3+1 traded a custom wool skirty for 12 WAHM pads.

The trade was with momof3under3 as you can see in feedback.

Here is what justmaandmy3+1 sent:

Here is what she got from momof3under3. (momof3under3 and her lack of sewing ability was recently discussed here).

I don’t think it gets worse then that.

Unhappy Am I being to picky or is this “normal?” *pics*

I ordered a custom from a WAHM based on recommendations here on DS. She was great- stayed in contact with me throughout the process, shipped promptly, no issues at all I got the item today and the quality is…. well… questionable. None of the raw edges are finished, strings are hanging everywhere, the seams don’t line up (which isn’t really a big deal) and one seam shows the lettering on the selvage. I emailed her asking if she normally sends out items with raw edges left unfinished, she very promptly replied that she has always done it this way and that she has made this item the same way for over 50 customers with no problems/complaints. She also said that the strings should wash away when I wash it- she doesn’t prewash cotton wovens because they don’t shrink

Am I being picky thinking this workmanship is not quite up to par? Should I follow up or just leave it alone? I’m I wrong for assuming that the edges would be finished? Should I have asked first before placing the order???? I guess most of my frustration is that I sew and could have totally made this item myself, but I don’t have a serger so that is why I paid someone else to do it

I paid for the fabric upfront and sent it to her (which was more $$ than she charged to sew it), so even if she refunds me (which I haven’t asked for and she hasn’t offered) I’m still out of the fabric. I’m going to wash it like she suggested, but I’m nervous that putting those raw edges through the wash is going to create a mess. Guess I’ll just have to wait and see.

This is what DD was going to wear for her 2nd birthday party on Sunday

Re: Am I being to picky or is this “normal?” *pics*

I just went to check out the mama’s WAHM thread again…. between the time I ordered and now she has been banned for 6 months Is there any way to find out WHY someone has been banned???

Where the buyer lied about diapers and put poop on them? She even left positive feedback for the seller and then she came here and was all up in arms?

You ladies brought it up yesterday, so I assume you do.

The t&f thread was deleted of course, but forever in our memory here… https://thedramaofdiaperswappers.wordpress.com/2009/05/28/ebil-post-office/

Well you will never guess who she is now…

She switched her Screen Name and somehow doesn’t have her old name of FlordiaMama under it…She apparently wanted to hide her SHADY past to start a WAHM company…

it is…

wait for it…

Interesting isn’t it? There must be a reason I never bought from her…

(For the fact-checkers, the photobucket matches: http://i423.photobucket.com/albums/pp312/mycraigslist09 and so does the feedback she left; she also has 2UNs on CDN).


The OP is owed money. There is no doubt about that.

Lookie Lookie who is calling her out though… Shoe girl can’t get enough.

When will the Admin at DS learn that she is a troll looking for attention?

She asked if she could pay me on the 3rd of this month at the latest as the $55 was all she had in her acct. (Come to see that she had a few transactions AFTER she purchased items from me so she had the PP).

I was a little hesitant but she explained that she was buying these for a friend in need. So I agreed to this. I mailed off the package and put close to $20 towards shipping. I contacted her and told her what she owed me. She again reassured me that she would PP me the rest by no later than the 3rd. On the 2nd I contacted her and asked if she could send the $$$. No response. I contacted her again on the 3rd, no response. I went through PP and got her email address and went this avenue. I told her that I needed ta a response on when I would get the $$$ and that if I didn’t have contact by yesterday (the 4th) thatI would be getting a mod involved. Sshe contacted me and told me that she knew that she still owed me money but that she was in the middle of a move and didn’t have acess to the internet and coudn’t access PP from her phone.

I replied and asked her when she would be able to send the $$$. No response.

Ok yeah I know I probably shouldn’t have sent it without having all the $$$. A small item wouldn’t be a big deal but shipping on the item was around $25 (and that is shipping parcel post).

I am not sure if I should do anything. If she had contacted me prior to the 3rd and explained the situation I think I would have been ok. But it took me 4x emailing her and pm’ing her to get a response.


:headscratch:
At the start you said close to 20$ and at the end you said around 25$ so what was it? Maybe she doesn’t want to pay you shipping because you’re numbers are conflicting..

Usually when people say (at least me) close to 20$ means 18 or 19 usually rounding up.. and around 25$ would be 23 or 24.. just rounding up.. Just sayin…

But yeah, She owes you.. And it should say on the package what shipping is.

I use PP on my iPhone ALL the time.. And I don’t use the app I use it on the site.

Ok…. she paid me $55 (true number). The items were $50 (exact number). That would leave $5 (exact number) towards shipping. In the start of the post I said that I put close to $20 (not exact) dollars towards shipping. I later said that the items was around $25 (not exact number) to ship, and she put $5 (exact number) towards the shipping….that would mean she owes me $20 (not exact).

50 (items)
5 (towards shipping)
_________________
$55 total

$25 shipping
$5 already paid
_______________
$20 left over.

Felisha, instead of trying to accuse me of LYING, maybe you can READ the post instead of trying to start drama. I am not using exact numbers. Fact is I am owed exactly $18.98 (Sweet niblets…..that would be CLOSE to $20 and that is EXACTLY what I said in my post. “I put CLOSE to $20 towards shipping). Yeah…one of the things I had to learn to get my college degree was rounding up numbers….thanks though.

I agree, wholeheartedly, with ALL of this.

Good luck, OP. She definitely owes you money, hopefully she does the right thing and pays up.

Re: Jennys Simply Clean Closed…Update in OP

I purchased Jenny’s Simply Clean in November of 2009. I had NO IDEA all this had gone on this summer. I just actually saw these post this past weekend and have been trying to figure out how to reply ever since. If Audrey, Jordan & Jacob (I think it was) will email me at Simplyclean2009@gamil.com, I WILL SHIP YOUR STUFF. Part of the reason I wanted the website was becasue of the Diaper Swaper’s connection and I thought I could build upon that and continue a good relationship. I am totally dissapointed in how I have been treated as I know you are. Simply Clean will not do business this way in the future I can assure you.
