nessyp54 Posted January 2, 2018 Share Posted January 2, 2018 I've known this woman since my daughter started nursery school. She has been the one to keep in contact. I've just obliged her. She has taken advantage of my generosity in that she would forget her purse when I had already paid the entrance fee to the cinema on more than one occasion thereby she knew i wouldn't want to go in on my own. She has scrounged lifts conned me out of £50 with her crocodile tears. She is, i know, a parasite. She preyed on me when my husband died. She even asked my daughter for.money - only a few pence but that's not the point. She works when she feels like it and has a very large bank balance. She once said we have little on common - apart from my purse and I'm useful for lifts rarely offering to pay car parking fee. Has kept me waiting every time for about 20 mins while I'm sat waiting in the car. She doesn't drive. She has scrounged so much from me over the years and i have now come to my senses. I cant afford her anymore. We stopped going out as i didn't trust her not to forget her purse. She would never buy a coffee as she always carries a bottle of water and a few nuts. If she does carry her purse she hides money very tightly folded in the corner of her purse thinking i cant see it. I've been a fool and i know longer want her company. It's been no pleasure going anywhere with her because i never know if she's on the scrounge again. This has finally come to a head because she asked if i wanted to go to a concert. I said yes but this time i asked her to book and i would pay her £35. She said she had booked. 3 days before we were supposed to go she said she ad an upset stomach and would not be able to go. I said it shouldn't last king and she then said do u still want to go. Anyway we didn't and she is chasing me for the money. I decided i don't owe her anything. I have blocked her on my phone and live far enough away for her not to visit. But she is persistent by bothering my daughter. I don't feel confident enough to say i no longer want contact with her. But i feel very guilty over this £35 . I will not pay her as she really is a leech. But that doesn't stop me from feeling awful. Your advice would really be appreciated. Thank you.
