    Until Peter can use to word no, this issue will continue.
    Now that's a plan !!!!

    You could be a crappy neighbor like me and not even know if someone living near you has asthma or not. Because I don't care.

    Update

    Today, I worked It out that In the past two weeks, 14 days, this guy has had one of us round there 12 days out of those 14., mostly my husband.

    It's Sunday, we've been out with friends all day and arriving home, my husband Is worn out but as soon as we are are home, the phone rings and It's him wanting one of us to go to the shop.

    So I have been round there and told him he's taking the p.iss.
    Told him, he has to take responsibility and buy enough drink and ciggs to last the week and when we do get It for him, It's going to have to be 9.30 am when I get back from the first school run. If he has to get out of bed earlier... tough.
    Told him I am no longer going to watch my husband In the last year or two of his life at his beck and call.
    He finally said ' Yes, maybe I've been a little selfish.

    That's a start anyway.
    Life is a Highway. Let's share the Commute.

    57 is considered elderly? Also, as an asthmatic, he smokes? And drinks? Tell him your conscience can no longer allow you to help him kill himself--let him do it on his own!

    After every thing I said, I get back from the school run this afternoon and what do I see ? Our car outside his house. He's phoned my husband knowing I'd be on the school run and away for a few hours. True to his word, my husband went and got him enough ciggs for a few days and told him he'd not be back until Friday. He declined the offer of a cup of tea and said he was busy.

    He's not elderly.... I said the neighbour I do cook and clean for Is elderly. This guy lives next door to him and no doubt has thought he'd have some of the same.

    What Anne said about his asthma... he's too frail to go to the shop on his own so what does he do? He gets someone else to get his smokes. I would definitely tell him I wouldn't be a party to his bad habits. This is like those super obese people that have friends and family delivering food to them all day. 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.
