A newly widowed mother of two teenagers bought a house at the height of the real estate market. She later learned from neighbors the previous owners had died in a murder-suicide. Her teenagers learned from neighbor kids. Can't you just hear the ghost stories that surely were told that night?
The real estate market collapsed. The mother sued (and lost) to get her money back. Once again, news commenters had me laughing so hard, you might have thought I was Greek...
"Maybe, if the plaintiffs (the homeowner suing) had introduced evidence from ghostbusters (paranormal detectives) the house was haunted, perhaps they may have won the case? They could claim the home was still illegally occupied by the previous owners."
"You have to wonder what she told the buyer of her home when she sold it after her husband died."
"Well, guess there's nothing left to do but bulldoze the place and start fresh."
"Probably a bad time to tell her the house also is built on ancient Indian burial grounds."
"I wouldnt worry about it until things start moving on their own and demonic voices are heard. Then call Ghost Hunters and get on TV."
"Just lie, tell everyone it's haunted like the Amityville house and make a fortune on it."
"Open a bed and breakfast and guests can stay in the murder-suicide room."
"I will take a ghost any day over my ex-wife."
"Presidents died in the White House, but lots of folks want to live there."
"I told my wife our house is haunted by the ghost of a woman who died in the house. My wife said, 'Great, ask her to pick up your dirty underwear in the bathroom and put them in the laundry.'"
"Wasn't this a Simpson's episode a few years back?"
"And the lawyers win again!"
"I feel her pain. I once bought a house and found out on moving day the whole neighborhood was infested with... LAWYERS."
"And the real estate agents would have gotten away with it too if it wasn't for those meddling kids... and that dog!"
"The troubling thing is not so much that there was a murder-suicide, but that the former residents were Greek. Imagine how loud the ghosts yell."
