He's manipulating Peter into enabling him. I don't know about Peter but I get very hostile when I finally figure out someones treating me like a puppet.
    I agree with you both. It annoys the hell out of me that he's so breathless because his asthma Is exacerbated by the heavy smoking. He gets the shakes and Is fragile because of the boozing.
    He does nothing to help himself but expects neighbours to be at his beck and call.

    Re: Being taken for a ride...

    It takes a lot to leave me speechless but:

    This afternoon, I'm about to climb In the taxi to go on a school run to Bath and the neighbour leans out of his window and asks me to get him cans of special brew booze and ciggarettes on my way to the school.
    He knows I leave dead on 2.15 to be at the school gates at 3pm.
    So I say that no way on gods earth am I keeping a brain damaged child at the school gates while I queue up In a shop for his booze.Besides which, I have to wear an official badge and shop staff would probably report me.
    So, he says, could I get It on the way back then ? Oh yeah, because my job would last 5 minutes leaving a brain damaged child on his own In the back of a taxi while I stopped at the Off Licence. Added to the fact, the driver Is Muslim and will not have alcohol In his taxi as he well knows...

    My husband has gone round there to rip Into him right now.

    A simple "No sorry too busy" would suffice.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth
