Today, I helped my hoarder grandfather clean out his garage. Not only did I step on a nail, I also slipped in a puddle of used oil that's been sitting out for two years, and broke my nose. He didn't pay me since I wasn't able to finish the job. FML

  • Wow. Really people? It's not like the Grandfather was asking for a five or ten minute job- what OP describes would have taken hours, possibly even days, and as the post proves the job is dangerous. Hoarders also tend to have personality disorders that make them not the easiest people to be around, and sometimes outright dangerous and abusive.

    Also, for all we know, the Grandfather offered the money for the job. It in fact sounds like that was the case, or at least like the grandfather never intended to follow through on paying OP. Which is a really dick move from anyone, but especially family. It's a really common (and abusive/toxic) tactic for people to say they'll pay someone to do a task, set up said task to be impossible, and withhold payment for the job not being done.

  • Your gramps is a hoarder. I imagine he'd be stingy with money anyway
