If you know he is an @...sss why did you lend him your wheelbarrow?
I can't even decipher what the OP's concerns are.
Because he's a neighbour. I might be reliant on him if I have a heart attack. I read Eric Berne's 'Games People Play' years ago and remembering this I've come to the conclusion re the puncture I'll just have to suck it up.
You'll have to lend him your wheelbarrow to get you to the hospital!!
I also read Games People Play in the late 70s - but I don't remember much about it.
That's a novel response to TA.
If you do have a heart attack, and you're relying on your rather useless neighbour, it might not end well.
Have you looked into those beeper alarm thingies? The local authority might have a scheme. Yes you have to pay each month, but at least the alarm people don't break your possessions (as far as I know).
Not wanting to fall out with anyone, I never lend out any tools.
I seem to remember my parents came to the same conclusion about lending books . . . I don't have any books to lend, as all my books are e-books . . if only we could have e-tools
Oh, and i completely forgot to state my suspicion that that OP is simply trolling
It's a pity he wasn't more specific though.
Yes, we do like our highly specific trolling on TES, gives us more to laugh about
More details is always good,especially when they are revealed bit by bit.
I think you should be writing the 'Guide to Good Internet Trolling' for TES
Funny comments, but the situation is not that amusing.
1. The neighbour is a 45-50 y o lady.
2. From time to time we get folded charity bags and are asked to leave them outside for collection on the date advised.
3. She moves the bags around, rips them or throws clothes on the floor.
I talked to a couple of neighbours today, and they have same issues with her. It seems like she hates everything which people leave next to their doors (umbrellas, small parcels..)
She is obviously mentally unstable and crying for attention, so not sure if I should actually give her that attention and who I should report her to.
She never talks back but I may try again, thanks.
I've met a few of those online.
If she is a threat to herself or to others, I would contact the police if usual attempts to communicate fail. They will be able to help
Yes! I recognise the sort of thing you mean! Probably always about yet suddenly appearing out of nowhere, leaving cryptic clues. Probably most active at night. Slightly disruptive yet purposefully enigmatic.
No, I wouldn't report her.
You'll be pleased to know.
Sounds like she has mental health problems. I would avoid leaving the bags out at night and, like someone said earlier, take the charity bags to a shop or one of those textile bins.
Bless her. She sounds troubled. I hope she is getting the help she needs.
