"What did we win?"
As reported on CI this morning by "neighborhood dot," it seems that the rented Budget truck was outside along with an SUV, dad's pickup and -- inexplicably -- a couple of convertibles.
Yes, the Serin Crime Family have been evicted from their home. Casey bears much of the blame for that, both by convincing his parent's to guarantee much of his recent debt, and then by convincing him to follow all his "mortgage elimination" crap, file multiple bankruptcies, try to transfer the house into his name, and engage in all sorts of other actions of dubious benefit and questionable legality. It must be remembered that when they first filed for bankruptcy, the parents were offered a pretty sweet Chapter 13 repayment plan that wiped out all the rest of their debt, left them in the house and set them up with a monthly payment that their salaries could afford, especially if they had some contribution from Steve. But they couldn't bother with that. They continued to not pay, to sit in the house, and to file again, and again, and again.
We were convinced they would file again to delay things further. After all, the parents filed. Then mom filed independently, and subsequently the interest in the property was (illegally) transfered to Casey who filed chapter 7 himself. It seemed that Papa Serin could still file on his own to delay one more time, but for whatever reason he failed to. Maybe he was just fed up. Maybe Casey was bored. Or maybe the odd dismissal of Casey's bankruptcy for reasons unknown put them on warning that there were possible consequences to the continuing fraud.
In fact, we have to wonder if the odd dismissal of Casey's bankruptcy also explains his sudden disappearance, apparently to live in a Jamaican shithole as we mentioned earlier this week.
And that brings us back to the question: "What did we win?"
We're not sure.
Certainly, there is some pleasure in seeing the Serins punished for their apparently endless support of their son long beyond the point where it was obvious to everybody with a brain that his activities were at the very least questionable, if not actually illegal. And it's hard to find a problem with kicking them out after they troubled the bankruptcy trustee to come up with an equitable settlement, then failed to make a single payment.
But through this all, Casey was still not punished. The haterz™ may have won a small battle, but we haven't really won.
Casey, as far as we know from his Facebook posts, remains a free man-boi in Jamaica. He hasn't been forced to admit his failure, or to be punished for it. True, he's living in a shithole while masquerading as being an island entrepreneur and has no home to come back to. He may be forced to become a drug mule to escape and his life is likely to remain miserable by any normal standard. But as we've often noted, he doesn't live by normal standards. He's gone to Jamaica without paying for it and the haterz™ have not, therefore he's superior in his mind and will continue to be so.
That ends up being the most frustrating thing about this saga. It's hard to declare victory over somebody who can't acknowledge how pathetic and miserable he's become. We may have won. By any normal standard, we won long ago, but somehow Casey isn't defeated. We await that.
And that's the way things are here at FalseCasey HQ, where we can't be foreclosed on because we don't own the place and we pay the rent every month.
