The Fired Nanny Who Won’t Leave: The Real Life Consuela from Family Guy
You hire an older woman to help you watch your kids in exchange for her living in your house. Two weeks after she’s living with you, she disappears for hours in her room, leaving your kids unattended and you frustrated. Just in case you didn’t make yourself clear enough, you write her a note with a list of her expectations. In response, she writes you one telling you that she ain’t gotta do shit and she’d appreciate if you (and the kids) leave the house to her from the hours of 8am to 6pm every day.
GIRLLLL WUT?? O_O
You fire her and she says not only is she not leaving but she will sue you if you try to lock her out.
That is what Marcella and Ralph Bracamonte are dealing with when it comes to Diane Stretton. The full story is on Daily Mail. That poor couple just wanted childcare so the wife would start a business. What they ended up with is a real life Consuela from Family Guy. Remember her?
At least Consuela lemon pledged a couple of surfaces. This Diane Stretton lady is just squatting in their home like it’s her birthright. WHO DOES THAT??
What sucks for them is that the police told them they have to go through the legal process of eviction. If they lock her out and they’re found liable for something wrongful they could lose their livelihood so for now, they just gotta deal, lock their refrigerators, their room doors and live like prisoners in their own home.
Diane’s old ass deserves a dropkick to the face. I ain’t lying. I know we’re supposed to respect our elders but not if they’re on boolsheet like this. The Bracamontes ain’t got no crooked cousins somewhere who could just see her in these streets and yank her ponytail one good time? I mean… I’m not saying. I’m just saying.
Apparently, she’s been involved in 36 lawsuits over the years. She’s a overly-litigious lumpwad. Some people weren’t born to prosper and she seems to be one of them.
She got the unmitigated gall to squat in these folks house AND make demands. She is strong and all the way wrong and she’s so committed to it. That takes some balls. I know old people have no dambs to give but she just took that to a whole new level.
I would have so much trouble maintaining decorum when some old bitty is in my house eating my food and refusing to leave. I’d have to ask Jesus to take the wheel, hold my mule and be a fence!
This is such a nightmare but there are lessons to be learned here.
1. Think twice about live-in nannies and you better check 25 references.
b. Make people sign contracts when they start working for you. Lay out all the terms. ESPECIALLY if they will be living in your house. PROTECT YOUR ASSETS (and diversify your bonds).
iii. Old people REALLY don’t give a damb.
She basically Columbussed their house! RUDE AS HELL!
What would you do if this happened to you?
