Hello everyone hope you had a good chrimbo and are not too over loaded with the dreaded carbs ??. I am in a dilemma in that my neighbour who is a lovely person but if she can get out of doing something that involves telephones e-mails texts etc etc then she will.
I was involved on her behalf in July 2016 in that she is in social housing and she pays a service charge every month that includes heating, water, but not her rent as that is paid seperatley The heating in her flat was not working and on contacting the housing association they sent out a contactor who told her the boiler was totally defunct and not repairable and that they would have to fit a new boiler, but in the mean time she would be without heating but as it was warm weather she was not really bothered but it took them over 1 month to change it.
I told her that she should contact the housing people as she was paying for the heating element on her monthly charge but was not getting any heating she then went into the "Oh I cannot be bothered mode it is far too much trouble and complicated for me" So I did all the corresponding for her and got her a rebate of £125:00 in time for Christmas She has thanked me more than once and now she has said she wants to arrange a dinner for me at her house to say thank you My dilemma is that she is not the cleanest or tidiest person and her house is not somewhere I would want to stay for more than a few minutes and I am not being horrible I have been in side but could not stand it after a few minutes and made my excuses and left also a few people who know her have mentioned this and she has refused any help to have the house cleaned and many people are wary of trying to talk to her about her personal hygiene as she can get very very nasty in the wrong situations.
I have mentioned to her on several occasions that maybe it would be better if we invited a few more people and that we had the meal at the local pub/restaurant but to no avail and now she is really pressing me for a date of the evening where I will be free to go to her house.I have thought about giving her a date and then telephoning at the last minute to say I am unwell in the hope she will forget the whole thing.
I could kick myself at times for getting involved in other peoples problems.
Have a super smashing day Cheers Ian :.))))))))
