Another difficult week
Posted by , 04 June 2005 · 103 views
Maurita had a suspected minor stroke about 10 days ago. Was in pain all down the left side of her head and arm. She had no energy at all for about 5 days, where the pain was constant. Although now better, she's still complaining of 'head rush' whenever she bends over to do something.She's only 36 and falling apart at the seams. Since Thursday we've been having major problems with a neighbour. She has several kids and she's nothing but a fat, ugly slag. Anybody read Viz? Well, she's like one of the fat slags ... only not as funny.Two of her kids are tearaways. The five year old boy has a habit of damaging cars. Under UK law he is below the age of criminal responsibility (which is 10). One of the 8 year old twins is in Lauren's class at school and has bullied her in the past. It got so bad some months ago that Lauren refused to go to school. She was also going to appear on a BBC programme (had a couple of people from the BBC over for a meeting) where this girl, Lea Lane, would be mentioned. Unfortunately Lauren didn't want to be on telly.Lea's non-identical twin sister is called ... wait for it ... LOIS LANE. She is non-identical in every way, including behaviour. We haven't had any trouble from her at all. She's undoubtedly the brains of THAT family.Things had improved but then a few days ago Lea decided to pick on Lauren in the street again by pushing her off the wall. She also managed to hurt the 2 year old, Aaliyah. Then on Thursday she did it again. This time her 16-year old cousin waded in by making threats against the girls (Lauren, Aaliyah, their cousin and a friend). Well, that was it ... Maurita went mad and asked me to go and pick the girls up from their friend's where all this was happening. She followed me a few minutes later and ordered the girls back home.As we were walking back, Maurita saw Lea heading into her house and called her over. She asked her for an explanation but Lea was just giving her shit back. So Maurita suggested they go and see her mother. Her mother, the big fat bitch, waded into Maurita claiming that she had heard Maurita shouting and swearing at Lea which she hadn't. Normally when Maurita has had to talk to the mother about Lea, whilst dismissive about her behaviour, she has at least been calm about it.One thing to note is that Maurita works at Lauren and Lea's school. She's a midday supervisor and knows how to deal with kids who get out of line. She was rather calmer in talking to Lea Lane than I would have been.But when this bitch decided to make accusations about Maurita I saw red. Normally I don't get involved but this time I flew at her. Maurita had to push me away. I had momentarily forgotten I had Aaliyah in my arms. I then started to walk away to calm down.Then this dickhead, who I assume was her brother (and the father of the cowardly bitch who threatened the girls), came storming out and decided to try to goad me into a fight. I just stared at him, daring him to try. Despite his stocky build, he would not have been difficult to take out. Then the bitch, not happy with making false accusations, showed her cowardly nature by attacking me while I had Aaliyah in my arms and was distracted by her brother. He must have realised that she'd screwed up as he quickly manhandled her back into the house. It seems likely that her initial outburst against Maurita was to prove to her brother how 'hard' she was.Needless to say we called the police. They had as well, obviously to get their side of the story across first. However, the police told us that if there was any more trouble then we should ring them and they'd come out.Yesterday (Friday), their five year old asked Lauren's cousin where my car was. It's usually parked on the road but after this we'd moved it to the driveway. Little bastard obviously wanted to cause some damage. So instead the mother gathered some dog shit in a bag and told him to throw it over the wall into our drive. We just left it there and called the police.Nothing else has happened since. If it does then the police will consider making an application for an ASBO. In the meantime we will be seeking an injunction and have a meeting set for next Thursday with our lawyers. They live in a council house and I will be sending a report to the council - if we can get them evicted then so much the better ... they've pissed on the wrong people here! Oh ... and Maurita is still in shock ...After 5 years, that's the first time she's seem me completely lose it!!
