He spent the whole phone conversation telling me lots of things like he was upset and hurt and neglected and listing things I hadn't said like 'screw his family if they lose all their money' for whoever was listening at his end.

He may have been winding me up.. I don't care. I don't want to spend anything until I have a seperate account!
