    Hello triggerhappy. Welcome to the forum. This is not a free translation site. We try to help persons who at least make an effort to translate for themselves.

    I just can say that the orthography and grammar is terrible, not a single punctuation mark, this way the translation will be very difficult.

    Sorry I didn't realize I had to pay. Can't seem to find the payment screen.

    I did try to translate it. This is what I came up with:

    "tell me is your stuff in the house, respond with a message now because I'm coming with Johnny"

    If you remove everything I'll give you money and the bicycle. When I go to your house............................................. .............................(can't seem to figure out the rest)

    (not sure how close I am to what she is saying)

    We don't charge you anything triggerhappy. This forum is primarily for professional translators to communicate with and help each other. They get paid for their work outside the forum but not here. We help others as a courtesy when we choose and we like for people to show they have tried.

    This is horrible Spanish, Triggerhappy. I will attempt to give you an idea of what the second sentence says.

    "Si ya lo yeve todo dejame dinero i la bisicleta cuando te balla d tu casa mi timbra para ir a recojera te estas portando mal.

    Yes, I already took it all. Leave me the money and the bicycle. When you leave your house give me a ring so that I can pick you up. You're misbehaving. Hope this helps.

    Thanks Chris I think you nailed it.

    Would you care at taking a stab at the other phrase. I'm not too sure if I translated it properly myself.

    Dime estan las cosas en la casa mi amor respondeme ahora que ando con johnny en mensaje

    Espero que te sea util.
