All moved in ?

just too much putting away/organizing for my OCD self. making the kitchen make sense, making closets organized, etc. and not being able to clusterfuck the garage currently is a hindrance.

My son helped his buddy move into the top floor of a three flat in the Northside on Saturday. He asked me to pick him up. I ended up helping them move everything. The two flights of stairs fucked us both up. We bought passed out when we got back home. It’s been so long that I can’t imagine moving a whole house’s contents...yikes!

Fuck that, I would have told him to hire movers, or college kids with it going to the 3rd floor. I've always been "that guy" that was the first person called to help friends/family move because they all know I have access to the correct equipment and trucks. I very rarely said no as it always turns in to a party of some sorts lol. In my 20's and early 30's, I would do paid side jobs moving ($30hr cash). Sometimes 2 a day both Saturday and Sunday. $1000-$1500 cash weekends were very nice. Now a days, I pick and choose who I will help depending on what/where they are moving out and in to. Also pending how many people they have helping. I tell them straight up, you better have 4-5 other men capable of lifting shit, or I'm not coming. Those days of nobody showing up and me doing all the hard shit are over with lol.

They are never fully packed and never ready I’m not packing your crap u will never move
This is the big thing. If you're asking for help from friends to move you better only expect them to load packed shit in to a uhaul or trailer, and unload it in to your garage or living room. None of this "oh this in that room, that goes here, oh help me clean this table off so we can load it up". Literally gfy.

My SIL tried this shit when she got divorced and moved, i show up and nothing is done, so I told her to let me know when the boxes are packed and ready go to. Went back home, lol (she lived right down the street)

Yup. Happened to me a few times.

Had to move my cousin a few times and exactly this...

Nothing packed.
Wasting my time.

Then when you get to New place they want you to haul boxes up to specific rooms..

Nope.. On the truck. Off the truck. I'm done

They were three former college athletes and one old balls. I started taking up the little shit and quickly learned the two flights of stairs would be my demise.

They weren't terrible, just wanted to do them before taking it on the road trip at the end of the month to the Black Hills. I'm sure I could've easily gotten through this year with them, but just wanted to do them now.

Luckily my friends/family pool has literally cut itself on half over the last few years...

Fewer people fewer favors
I 100% believe in "a small circle is the best circle".
I have hundreds of friends, but my circle consists of 5 dudes I've known 25+yrs. We been thru the best of times and the worst of times and although we might not talk every single day. I'm 10000% sure they would take a bullet for me, keep their mouths shut if shit hit the fan, look out for my family if I passed away or had to go give the State a few years of my life or any other situation that arises and its vice versa. Truly ride or die type of dudes.

3 college athletes? You should have brought a chair up, sat down and directed traffic lol. Maybe got up to get them a beer when needed lol.
What area did they move in to, Bucktown?
