Maybe you all can help me with a problem that happened "about" me. Last week a neighbor came over and asked me to please not the animal control on his dogs, that if there is a problem to tell him. Well, I had no idea what he was talking about. Turned out that his dog and his son's were picked up by animal control, which he did get back. He was told that the caller ID showed my landlady's phone number. He apparantly talked to her, she told him I had called, using her phone! I don't even know where she lives! I was upset with this and assured him it was NOT me.When I went to the bank, the daughter-in-law was working there and I tried to say how sorry I was about what happened and she was real cold, said she did not want to talk about it and for me to stay where I am and she would stay where she is. They live just up the hill from me. Never had any problem with anyone before, now this. How is the best way to handle this? The more I think about this the madder I get at the landlady. Why drag ME into this??!!!

The solution is simple.As with all liers you need to set up a meeting with the person that told the lie,the person that heard the lie, and the person that the lie was told about.People that lie can only get away with it as long as you don't confront them in this way.

Move. She is using you as the patsy.

(Patsy as in lackey, flunky, pawn, tool, a person who is easily manipulated or victimized, a person easily cheated or deceived)

Not my kind of landlord.

Not my kind of landlady either, but I have till April, that's when my lease is up. Have a place in mind, another neighbor that lives in back of me. He and the landlady don't get on either, she isn't liked by anyone, ever her own family has cut her off. That might be a way to "get even"! LOL! She'd really be mad then!

There is also telling the neighbor (with the bad dog) the truth. Explain that the landlady may not be telling the whole truth; that you hold him in high regard and would talk to him face-to-face.

That some one would think me a lier would bother me.
