celebgran your post made me smile, she must think you are a "Friend with Benefits"! Barefaced cheek. I didn't know what 'taking the p*ss' meant when I first came to live in London, until someone explained it to me as follows: Q. "Can you lend me a fiver please?" A. 'Sure'. As the fiver is proffered, the person says "Actually, could you make that a tenner?" grin she seems to be doing just that.

Good move to ignore the message - what a cheek!! In a way it must help to reassure you that you are doing the right thing and walking away.

This is not a friend even with inverted commas. Just unbelievable. I'm dumbstruck at the cheek. I think you need to call her 'leech' if you have to refer to her ever again shock
