Sorry in advance, just need to rant. This is crazy, promise it's not MUD!
I spent Easter with BF's family this year. They are awesome! It's the first time I met a lot of them, and we bonded really well. There are three aunt's in the picture (A, B, and C). We had the party at Aunt A's house, and Aunt B was there. Aunt C was "too sick" to show up. I put that in quotations because everyone there was calling it horse shyt. So, Uncle A has this old beat up BMW that needs about $2k of work done to it. He wants to get rid of it, so BF offers to buy it. Uncle A says he can have it free since it needed so much work. I front him the cash for the repairs. We leave with it. I started talking about how I'd love driving it, bla blah. So bf says, since I gave him the money, he'd fix it free (minus parts), and I could just keep it if I wanted. I agreed - so now I have a nice running/looking car for $3k.
Here's where things get sticky. Aunt C & Uncle C loaned BF money when he was 17. This was six years ago. BF worked for Uncle C for two years (summers) to pay back the money he borrowed. BF has always been great about paying people back, so I'm inclined to believe him. He claims he paid back all of the money by the end of the 2nd summer. Uncle C all of a sudden, crawling from the woodwork, says BF owes him 50% interest since he gave BF the money, plus the original $2k. WTF! First of all, I'm pretty sure 50% interest for a 17 y/o is extortion. Now, Uncle C has Aunt C call and threaten BF. The convo basically went like this, "BF, you need to fix up the BMW Uncle A just gave you, pay for all of the parts, do the labor, and give it to us. Or it's going to get really ugly."
Well I immediately got pissed off since the car is MINE. The title is in my name AND I paid for it. I can't believe they had the nerve to do that. Some people are just worms.
Really sorry if this was incredibly confusing. Just ranting! Can't believe how F'd up family can be.
