- Nyaaaaah'...Peace and quiet and crickety wicket sounds from outside.
- Finally, I am alone in my bedroom with the lights dimmed low.
- The visitor just left.
- The Hubz and my youngest son went out for his ( the son's) much needed haircut.
- School resumes tomorrow.
- Normal routines softly settling in.
- Need to lose the weight I have so seriously gained...tsk!
It wasn't as if she wasn't advised. Our phone calls last year were left unanswered yet we gave her the benefit of the doubt. Maybe she's overseas I thought...Japan or maybe in the States to visit relatives. Surely ten thousand pesos isn't a big deal. I mean, it's a lot perhaps...but she doesn't seem the type who'd think so.
Soooo..Hubzzy lovie went knock knocking into her nice huge Italian inspired graaaand mansionesque housie....The first thing she tells him is that I had already sent a friend of mine to collect the money from her. Hubzzy calls me and asks..
Hubz: Honey...did you send someone over to collect money from her?
Me: Huh? Who? Duh?
Hubbzy: I thought so...I'll settle this.
To make her story worse, she claims I sent my best friend over to collect the money from her and that I had personally...personally....persooooonally texted her to hand over the money to "my friend" ( whom I have sent) .Grrrrrrrr........
Now...if that isn't being stoned I dunno what is!! Sigh.
One of the very first things I told myself as the year 2007 was drawing to a close was that I would think kindly of people. Just be accepting. What happened this morning is a real test. How can I think kindly of this person who is obviously trying to con my hubzzy and me? How dare to even use my friend's name. How dare to use me...meeeeeh! Gawsh'....her storytelling a lie is unbelievably downright dumb I had to laugh.
Oh' well..at least she paid out half. She's not off the hook yet..oooh' noooo...I mean to go back this Saturday to face her square..like eyeballl to eyeball..hah! And of course to collect the rest of what she owes. Me' hopes I can hold my tongue.
