first my plans for works on the house get borrowed................see an earlier moan on aibu.

Now DP has just rung to say a suit for next door has been delivered, and he can see that it is exactly the same as the one i bought for DS's holy communion. I showed my neighbour DS's suit a few weeks ago. She's gone and bought the same for her DS's holy communion. They are both making their communion on the same day in the same church at the same time ................aaaaarrrgghhhhhhhhh.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Enjoy!


MaureenMLove · 15/05/2007 13:44

Did they put a note though the door to say that you had taken delivery of it? If not, I would deny all knowledge of having it!! Thats quite weird actually.


MaureenMLove · 15/05/2007 13:46

Why don't you show her a really daff dress that you are going to wear and see if she copies you again. Then keep your real dress under wraps until the day.


americantrish · 15/05/2007 13:48

that's creepy as hell.....


LadyTophamHatt · 15/05/2007 13:49

she might think its sweet to have them dressed the same....


heifer · 15/05/2007 13:54

I think you need to move....


hippipotami · 15/05/2007 13:59

I agree with Maureen - I think you can have some fun here!!
Show her all manner of hideous stuff and see if she copies you. She will soon suss out that you are aware she copies you, and stop out of sheer embarassement. Problem solved, no need to ever say a word!


stoppinattwo · 15/05/2007 18:16

Sorry havent replied sooner but someone swore on the thread nad that meant i couldnt open it in work...............

I will think up a cunning plan.

It took me ages to find a suit that i actually liked, little boys in suits doesnt really appeal, and i didnt want it to be too formal, should never have showed it to her.

she's a freak isn't she

I think you'd be well within your rights to say its exactly the same suit you showed her that your DS was wearing and she'd probably forgotten but that you feel really uncomfortable and would be grateful if she could change it


stoppinattwo · 15/05/2007 18:23

But twigg will you tell her!! I dont do embarrasing confrontations very well

you tell her and i will go and stand in another room

Twiglett · 15/05/2007 18:26

ok .. cat me her phone number

how's this

'oy freakoid .. get a life"


DragonFaerie · 15/05/2007 18:27

SIA, you have my total sympathy, I could've written the OP, my 'friend' started buying the same clothes as me (as well as matching her DS to my DS, changed her style from business chic (sp?) to Boho) , and even had a tattoo 'because [I] had one' least that's the reason she gave a mutual friend for having it done
I tell you, there are some psychos about...


DimpledThighs · 15/05/2007 18:29

she is odd - that kind of behaviour is odd.

Stop telling her or showing her ANYTHING (or if you are wicked find a really awful picture of a dress adn say that you are wearing it for the service and see if she turns up wearing the same )


stoppinattwo · 15/05/2007 18:30

aww twigg you would do that for me {{{overwhelmed}}}

I think i will take the "you know DS has exactly the same suit as your DS" approach and see where that leads us........

Oh btw..........mild panic, just checked the delivery contents and the suit pants are missing!!!! I am innocent honest >

OP posts:

stoppinattwo · 15/05/2007 18:31

but i cant vouch for DP who took the delivery

DragonFaerie · 15/05/2007 18:33

SIA??? er I meant, SAT?? How did I get that so wrong


stoppinattwo · 15/05/2007 18:34

That ok FD

DragonFaerie · 15/05/2007 18:42

Thanks SIA,( what a dipstick I am!)

BTW, much like you , I still can't face the embarassing confrontations and have taken to DT's approach of just not showing/ telling her about anything.

I feel really guilty sometimes but if I let my guard down even slightly she exploits it and I am reminded that she is, in fact, still a psycho... If you find a good way of dealing with it I'd love to know.

(Quite why anyone would want to imitate me is a complete mystery to me and probably all MNers too...)


helenhismadwife · 16/05/2007 13:14

that would really annoy me, can you say something to her in a jokey sort of way that you charge for personal shopper services or be sarcastic and suggest when you go shopping you will buy two of everything in case she wants the same

Have you seen the film Single White Female?


stoppinattwo · 16/05/2007 20:51

stop hughjars...............youe making me nervous.

I said to you know DS has exactly this suit for his HC, whats yours for..............

ummed and arrrrrd for a bit, and said but it was really hard to find one and anyway the church have said they can wear what they want........and i really wanted to put him in 3/4 pants >

anyway, i jokingly said dont let him stand by DS when they do the group photos or they will look like little and large (although they are the same age DS is about 3 inches taller).. well we are still speaking and i think i may have got my point across AS tactfully as i could.

Will just remember in future, eat all receipts for new clothes and paint our windows black
