Hi everyone, here is the gist, a friend of many years who retired back to the UK has stayed with me on occasion during visits here, she is a difficult self-opinionated person but i am used to her. This time she has been travelling alone around Canada and the USA for nearly 3 months, including 2 weeks on a container ship across the Atlantic. I had a severe allergic reaction a few days before her arrival and was very unwell. She has treated me like a servant, been bullying and rude including to an elderly guest at a large formal dinner I provided for her chosen guests last wednesday evening. She demanded a cooked breakfast every morning, and constant cups of tea etc during the day and evening. She even tried to take control of the remote control at one point, she has no Children but proceeded to lecture DD and I on potty training etc. I tried to give her the benefit of the doubt as when she was travelling she discovered her twin has terminal cancer, but as she didn't go straight home i don't think it really affected her. She has been divorced since her mid-twenties and always lived alone.
I have a far better education than she has yet she treated me like the village idiot, DD and SO and other friends have laid down the law as to her staying with me again, as DD says if she could not see how ill I was then she does not deserve my friendship. As some of you know from previous posting I do like to help people but this has gone too far.
Too much time on her own and too many Hotels with room service I think.
So do I put her off next time and just meet her for coffee or lunch or do I give her a second chance, sorry this is so long but only way to explain .
