    Well said Sharon, I think Donna and Iambanned are the same person, and I think I know who it is by their wording.  Sad that they have to hide, maybe the other board they belong to is getting slow. LOL.

    All opinions are welcome and we certainly have learned how to agree to disagree.  This site would be very boring if we all thought the same things.  Sorry that some do not realize this.

    I think you tried to help your friend and that’s a good thing, and the fact that she thanked you afterwards means you did the right thing at the time, Maybe next time she will be able to stand up for herself, She may be the type of person that doesn’t like to hurt someone else’s feelings, But by her letting you do it makes you the bad guy and lets her off the hook,
    You are a good person,

    I had this problem when my granddaughter was little.  She played with the three neighbor kids–well, they played HERE–all the time.  Their mom never let Lisa play at THEIR house, but that was okay with me.  Her kids were here all the time, six days a week.  They played in my side yard and driveway.  WELL, when they wanted to go to the bathroom, I told them to go to their own house.  They literally only had to run around my fence and run in their own back door.  One day their mother made a smart aleck remark to me about me sending her kids home to use the bathroom.  I said it was closer for them to go to her house, than for them to go in my house, go all the way down stairs, and use my familyroom bathroom.  A short while later, another neighbor complained to me that her kids were running in and our of her house all day using HER bathroom and peeing all over her toilet!  Boy was I glad that I stuck to me guns!

     

    Some people are just nebby and rude.  I think you did the right thing.

    Hey Donna, I don’t think you’re fooling anyone here.  You oughta lighten up a bit–still mad after all this time–geessh.  Get over it.

    Whoever Donna is, it sure isn’t me. I think her response was extremely harsh and pretty overboard, especially for someone obviously new? Or under some assumed name or what have you.
    <p>Pretty sure the powers that be can tell you that her and I are not one in the same, but impeccable timing whoever you are. Thanks a lot

    You said this woman comes over to your friend’s house any time and helps herself to anything in the kitchen?  Oh, boy, that is where your friend needs to learn how to say NO!  I don’t do that at my own daughter’s house!   I never take anything without asking, except for a glass of ice water.  Maybe you could help your friend learn to speak up.

    I’m trying, oldgirl, but she just doesn’t want to hurt her feelings.  She is too nice for her own good.

    It’s the friends house and it’s up to her to speak up.  Only in my house would I make a statement.
