Childhood[edit | edit source]
Manny .D Mush grew up in the harsh parts of Bridgeport and was raised selling old novelty Gnomes to anyone who'd want them. He worked as a child due to the poor conditions and times happening in that town. His father had always said that, "Bridgeport was an old woman turning young!". Many beautiful women started pouring in the city trying to get their shine in the spotlight. Manny fell in love with these women only because they had the money and no brains.
He was very charismatic and had all the right moves, being great at dancing. He was just 12 when he met his first love! She was the type you can charm easily. Her name was Carol, and she was the daughter of a singer who was going insane after losing his job to his own brother. Her family moved out to Bridgeport to start a new life and create their own star in the sky. Manny knew Carol was a beautiful Sim, but he was focused on the cash she had instead of the love between them.
Teen Years[edit | edit source]
Both Carol and Manny quickly became friends and went on a couple of dates as teens, but Carol was a fool. She had kept a close eye on her new boyfriend for awhile. The eventually, the two were forced to marry after their folks found out both families had a meaningful amount of dough in their wallets. After the wedding, Carol made Manny sign a preen up. Manny soon was able to get a job as a Grocery Store Clerk close by his house and worked his tail off until he was fired for showing up to work in his trousers. Manny thought the idea of firing someone because of the way they dressed was ridiculous, as some people have no choice but to dress this way.
Wife number Two and Three[edit | edit source]
Soon after Carol and Manny were inseparable until they became young adults. Carol was pregnant with their Manny Jr. and Manny was struggling to find a job. Manny's father and Carol's father had started a business selling used radios and hardware supplies, when the police found out all of it was stolen, both of them were placed in prison for a long time and their stores were shut down. Manny became desperate and was lead down the path of staying out at bars at night wasting the little bit of simoleons he had left on bottles of Nectar.
Carol started to grow tired of Manny and after having given birth, she left him and their son and ran off with another man. Manny was left to raise his newborn child and quickly had to decided how to pay rent and feed him. He thought about remarrying to a rich woman and soon enough he did. Lorenne was wife number two, and fell in love with Manny out of the blue. She was actually in love with him because she was a chubby chaser. But Manny didn't care, all he wanted was to have some simoleons to help take care of his son and him.
But soon enough his commitment issues came to him and he cheated on Lorenne with Olga Landgraab. Lorenne was shocked to find this out and she too was carrying his second child, Lydia. She too left Manny with his kid and stormed off in another man's arms never to be seen again. Olga was stinking rich and beautiful to top it off. But the woman's beauty wasn't as beautiful when she got angry. Olga had high standards and she put Manny to work. He was soon working day after day taking Sim's belongings if they didn't pay their bills on time. He became the owner of the business and started repossessing anyone Malcolm Landgraab hired him to repossess.
Olga grew tired of waiting for Manny to start having kids with her so she walked out on him and even signed his own name on the divorce papers. Manny was even happy though Olga left he had the reputation of marrying a Landgraab, what else did he need besides that?
Two more Wives and a Lawsuit[edit | edit source]
"Ah, women...who needs em' eh?", Manny said this after a night out with the kids when they turned 11. He took them to a Simfest and there he saw her...Miss Dquota Johnson. Dquota had a beautiful singing voice and people seemed to gather around her to see her perform all the time. Dquota was a bit chubby like him, but her face made all the chubbiness go away. I mean Manny was thicker than she was and HE was the picky one! Manny and Dquota was soon married but never had any kids. Dquota was stuck on becoming a famous singer, Manny eventually broke up with her.
His kids became a bit restless after the constant thoughts of Manny bringing home women every day. He wasn't even attractive, who really ever thought he was handsome? Manny Jr. got into trouble for vandalizing property and Manny soon found out by Lydia he was getting sued by a neighbor for repoing an item he wasn't supposed to take. Both situations were too much to handle, Manny didn't want his son to go down the wrong path and his lawsuit would be bad for business. So he made the ultimate decision, he put his job before his family.
He married once and the last time to Terra Flats who bared him his last child, Nathan. Terra was the last and the only wife Manny had who stood around till their kid became a child. Terra left after she figured out Manny was so focused on work than his family and moved out far to Diamond Heights, she later died by a fire set in a barbeque party. Left to raise three kids, he picked them up and moved out to Sunset Valley to keep his job booming and let them roam the town with peace.
Him Now?![edit | edit source]
Manny Jr. became an Adult and had to help run the business as a Repoman in order to get paid. His father loved the idea if all his children followed his path but Lydia took Nathan away a moved so far away that he lost contact with them. This did not surprise him, he always placed his first son on a pedestal before his other two.
The story ends with Manny Jr. taking and running the business now in The Sims 2 and Manny is never heard from again. Manny Jr. is shown maybe once or twice if bills aren't paid for.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Lady and Manny had previously dated in the past but broke up due to both of their pursues to dominate the relationship and their field in work. Lady refers to Manny as "The Garbage Man" and would often (if not) always make sure her bills are paid for just to not see him. Since Manny dislikes Lady, he never buys any of her clothing for men and would try to convince his daughter to not buy anything from her (failed).
As his son, Jr. respects his father to a point. As the two worked together in The Sims, Jr. became more and more tired of getting a cut and told him he wanted to run the business himself. After which, Manny thought it was time for him to fall back and let his son run things. Jr. and Manny's relationship is better than the rest of his kids, being running away and turning into a Werewolf on purpose, and Nathan becoming a doctor and never speaking to his family ever again.

Throughout the Sim series, Manny has owned and created several shops besides just working as a Repo-man.
