to expect downstairs neighbour to look after herself? Minor rant...

She has lived in the downstairs flat for 15m. In that time she has borrowed: sewing cotton (x2), paper, our phone (x3), a screwdriver, a knife ("to peel a sweet potato - I left my knife in my friend's car"), a vegetable peeler (x2), a can opener, a corkscrew. Tried to borrow a calculator to do sums (literally, adding-up), I went and did it for her.

She has locked herself out of her flat more times than we can count - 7x in first 6m she lived there.

Once her bathroom door handle fell off (she'd broken it and not told landlord) and she had to call for help out the window as could not figure out how to open door herself.

The landlord had to tell her to tuck shower curtain into bath to avoid water going all over floor.

She is in her mid-20s and has lived out of home since 16.

Seriously - wtf???

that's what dh thinks, but no evidence to suggest this.

(do I know you?)

She would have to be pretty darned useless to be that incapable unless she indeed has some kind of special need.

I don't think I know you - I don't live downstairs grin
