Utterly disgusted and hurt

I had a "friend" .... she was a friend until about 6pm .. now she can go and blow bubbles

She bought a jack russel puppy some time back .. a real little sweetheart who like all JRT are into the mischeif business.

Pepper was turfed outside and left to his own devices with no attention , no training and no love ....

Me being psychic I warned her that Pepper needs training and he needs to be played with daily .. he should also be a house puppy and not left outside .
I proceeded to teach her how to train Pepper .... she did it once

Now this stupid woman has chickens .... and of course what does an untrained ,unstimulated JRT do with chickens ?????????? well first he plays with them .. and then he starts killing them...

So Pepper is now at the shelter ... I cant take him , my boxer wont tolerate small dogs .

This has upset me so ......

Secondly ... Garth my son is a youngster with a 12 week old baby and no money .. he is earning minimum wage , but Garth is pretty good with computers so he does basic repairs etc for a small fee.. she arrives here last week with her PC that her cat has knocked of a table ????? ( I havent figured this one out yet) and can he fix it ...... the case needs a new one but Garth sits the entire afternoon gently panelbeating the case back together and checking that everything is working ... and now she is chirping that she must pay ...... I feel like throwing her flippin pc of a cliff

**** im angry ...... Pepper is in a shelter , and suddenly she is broke ????? ha !!!!!!!!!!!!

It's sooooo true what they say about never doing business with family or friends. I also would not give the computer back without some kind of payment. Good luck Carol!

For the amount of time and care your son put into repairing her PC, I'd expect her to HAPPILY pay (MINIMUM) 50% of what any other shop would have charged for the repair.

Then I'd shove her on down the road and not return her calls. I am no longer friends with a High School friend because of her callous 'I'm-tired-of-them-so-I'll-get-a-new-one' attitude of revolving pets.

I'm sorry that you are dealing with this. We have lost several "friends" because my husband has worked on their computers and they haven't paid, or other wonderful things.

It's a shame the way some people are.

Carol, the whole thing is so very unfair. I'm so sorry. Make her pay, and forget her. She's not a friend. Poor Pepper; poor chickens; lady with no common sense.

Re: Utterly disgusted and hurt

Your son should undo the repairs he made to her computer, what a piece of work she is.
Poor pup and chicks.. I am so very sorry Carol.
