I recently helped a buddy move, no big deal... We had to move our stuff into storage for a short period and he ******* and moaned the whole damn time. When it came time to move everything out of storage, I didn't even call him, more food and beer for the guys that came and actually just did the job instead of ***** about it.

Moving Sucks

So last year my friends bought a house. They had problems with the closing. So on wed I would call, and yes they are closing on friday and will move that weekend. They gave notice to the landlord. Didn't close. Next wed, ok yes we are closing. Didn't close. Third wed, same thing. So finally the 4th fri they actually closed! But no one could help them move and the very patient landlord said they must go because the new renter was moving in the following weekend - she had also postponed her apartment. So basically everyone was mad, even though it wasn't their fault, but the were holding everything up. And it screwed up 4 weekends for me.

So I go over to help them move. They lived in a second floor apartment, but there was also the equivalent of a flight of stair outside! Guess what? It was 90 degrees outside and I was the only one helping!!!! So all day in this god awful heat I am helping Mike carry out dressers and what not while Katy is carrying boxes. I wanted to kill someone! It was soooo hot! Good thing I had been working out all summer. I was the only one not sore the next day. And PS, I am a female! I know Mike felt so stupid having a girl help him carry out furniture!

Eventually his 60 year old bar buddy showed up. But he did nothing but complain and I was seriously afraid he was going to have heart attack! Then arounf 9pm some other buddies got off work and came over to get the pool table - cause I sure as hell wasn't carrying that slate!

I had friends nicely offer to help me move but I'm sure they don't actually want to help. I told them we all have old knees and so we're paying movers.

I’m moving out of state in 3 weeks. As soon as my friends and family found out most of them asked what day they should come over to help pack up our moving truck. My family offered to take us out for breakfast the next morning, and my friends offered to take us out to dinner that night. We are also on the 3rd floor. I guess I’m just really lucky to have such great family and friends, they will really be missed! :-)
