Part 2

Okay... where was I? Oh ya... Kris and the accident... I told Kris afterwards "Look Kris, we all make mistakes in life, its what you do after those mistakes are made that matter"  So Kris stayed on our couch at home for about a week... Then one day, he up and went back home... We hoped he didn't go back to the drugs but what could we do...
We had paid Kris' rent for April and we were going to pay it for May if he got his shit together and was trying... that wasn't the case or he never would have gotten in the accident... so needless to say we didn't pay May's rent... Now remember Sam knows the manager of the property really well [remember Sam cosigned for Kris]
 
The Manager [his name is Tom] called Sam to say Kris hadn't paid his rent for May and Kris had a drug dealer, the drug dealers g/f and a dog now living with him. He also told us the night of the accident... Kris left in such a hurry with that girl, he left his door ajar and the other tenant Robert knocked on his door, the door opened and he saw a bunch of Meth and Pot packaged for resale...  He also told us he believed Kris was doing something with stolen goods for this drug dealer because he knocked on Kris' door one day to talk to him about the rent he owed and Kris wouldn't answer... He knew Kris was there so he parked down the street and waited... about a half an hour later... a van pulled up to Kris' apartment [There is only 3 apartments in the whole place]
and then pulled down the street and waited, Kris then drove his truck and met the van... Then Kris started taking T.V.'s and stereo's and whatever was in that van and put it in his truck and drove off...
 
We told Tom to go ahead and start eviction proceedings against Kris... so he did...
 
We learned all this about 3 weeks ago and went looking for Kris...  Kris' friend Mike works and lives in a trailer park... If Kris isn't home he is usually at Mike's...  I can not tell you how it feels to look for your child who is on drugs, driving through the cities nastiest trailer parks...  We couldn't find him anywhere... We went by the office and pulled Kris' cell phone bill [we had been paying the cell phone bill so we could get ahold of Kris] We told Kris not to use the text messaging because it was NOT part of his plan... When we found out he had text messaged over 400 times in the last month... that was it... we shut it off...  We left the radio part on because we figured he would FINALLY radio us to ask what happened to his phone... NOPE never happened... Kris somehow had money and bought another phone with pay as you go features... We couldn't find Kris because he was in Chino Hills doing a painting job... so we quit looking for him, however we did buy a meth drug test at the local drug store. 
 
When he did show up, we were going to test him.
 
Anyway, meanwhile Tom let Kris know he had till June 15th to get out of his apartment.  We told Tom we would make sure Kris was out on June 15th. [Remember Sam had cosigned and felt responsible for this mess] When Kris had gotten in the accident... Kris had asked to move into the High Desert house, so he could save money and get another apartment.  At that point, we didn't have a problem with it... However as the weeks passed Sam told him "We need to talk about it first Kris... you need to come by the house and let's sit down and talk"
Needless to say Kris avoided us like the plague.. and time was ticking down... by May 31st... Memorial Weekend I called to invite Kris to a bar b que... he never returned the call... I thought for sure he should be packing up his apartment by now... 15 days till he has to be out right?
 
We finally gave up waiting to hear from Kris and went on with our lives... 6 days before Kris has to be out Sam gets a text message from Kris  "Hey Dad, this is my new number, I know I owe you a lot of money and I will pay it all back I promise"  okay...whatever Kris ...  we were pissed... So Sam never texted him back... If he couldn't pick up the phone and call... then screw him... We left for the high desert house... with Kieffer, Kameron and friends to do work on the house...
 
Kris FINALLY calls Sam 72 hours before he is to be out of his apartment... Sam says "You need to come talk to me about staying here Kris"  "But I don't have any gas money Dad"  "Well, hopefully you'll find someone to lend it to you then... gotta go Kris" click...
 
to be continued...

if a person is on crack/meth they will rob their entire family blind for another piece of the drug....and my BFF has a son who goes around and breaks into others cars to get a certain radio or MP3 player or laptop and the dealer gives him $$ or more drugs.....it is rampent in my city. This is awful for you and Sam.
