A couple of weeks ago I vented about my next door neighbor wanting me to bake her cookies while I was injured. Well, she has gotten revenge on me by telling our neighbors that I will do cake, cookie, and chocolate orders on credit. I had another neighbor called and ask me if I could walk over to her house because she had a huge order for Halloween. I got there and she had all this stuff for me to do by Saturday, yep tomorrow. She had like 4 huge cakes, 6 dozen cookies, and a huge amount of chocolate candy. I asked her if she was having a party and she said yes. She said she went out and bought about 500 dollars worth of decorations now that she could afford the cakes and other food. I thought well I am glad she chose me to do all her catering. I spent about 2 hours with her and tolld her the price and that I had to have half of the money up front for a non-refundable deposit, and that the other half was due at delivery. She had the weirdest look on her face when I told her how much it would cost and that it was due this way. She proceeded to tell me that our other neighbor (I call her the cookie monster) told her and everyone else in the neighborhood that I would put it all on a credit plan and they could pay me by the week or month. I told that neighbor that I run a business and you can't layaway food, that I don't know anyone who does that. I explained to her what had happened with the cookie monster. She broke down in tears, because she has all this 500 dollars worth of decorations and no money for the food and goodies. She said she would probably have to cancel the party. I told her I was truly sorry but she should have called me first and talked to me about it. I am a small business right now and I have to have the money to buy my ingredients especially for big orders. I have already had several neighbors call me and ask me if I had a payment plan and I said no, where did you hear that from and they told me from cookie monster. So they neighborhood is getting together tonight at 7 pm and going over to her house and confronting her about this. Last time when she didn't pay for her cookies and cake her husband did and he was furious. We are making sure he is there when we go. Oh, did I mention she took the time to make flyers to put in peoples doors?

I'm just speechless!

And that's very unusual for me icon_biggrin.gif

I can't believe someone would go to that much trouble for revenge. Wow!

She made flyers for YOUR business with false information!!!

There are so many things wrong with this woman! I'm so sorry you have this her for a neighbor because you just can't fix crazy.

Glad to see you have the support of the rest of you neighbors.

Make it clear to her and her husband that if she thinks of doing anything else to harrass you or your business the police and your attorney will be notified.

Good grief! icon_eek.gif She is wacko. I can't believe someone would actually do this. People continue to amaze me.

Well......I have never.....I don't know what to say either. But - please tell us how this comes out - need to know what she said when all of the neighbors showed up at her house.

I remember your original thread about this freak.

I remember the other thread too. She's flippin' crazy! I'll be checking back later to see what went down. I hope you get this all straightened out. I really hate it for the lady with the $500 worth of party stuff. Maybe she can return some of it and at least have some store-bought food or something.

Wow! She really didn't think her cunning plan through, did she? Somehow in her twisted mind everyone would be mad at you for not doing things the way she said you would. Reality: everyone's mad at her for lying to them. She's obviously off her rocker!

Holy Cow!!! Telling people is one kind of crazy, but to actually make flyers!! That is just insane!

I was going to ask about the flyers too??

Did the nutball make them for your business, or did the party thrower make them for her event??

I can't wait to hear how the confrontation goes. I keep checking back even though I know it's not time yet icon_biggrin.gif

I'm just picturing brooms and pitchforks and all that, like the beginning of Shrek.

Even video from a cell phone would be good.

My kids will be mad, we're going to be late to the carnival because I can't go anywhere until I find out what happens.

Yeah, OP, I think (and at least Texas would agree here, I think) that it is your CC/civic duty to record this confrontation for us. icon_twisted.gificon_lol.gif

Well I made it back from the cookie monster's house. Her husband was there, too. At first, he couldn't figure out why the whole neighborhood was in his living room. I started out telling her that I did not appreciate her telling everyone that I ran a business on credit. Of course she denied it. But everyone there told her she told them in person and when they didn't believe it she came back a day later with the fliers. She denied making the fliers. Her husband was flabbergasted, he didn't know what to say. She kept denying everything until her step daughter came in and said you can prove it by the computer. She said she saves everything on the computer. Her husband went to get on the computer and I thought she was going to body slam him. He searched her documents and sure enough she had saved it. Then she lied once again and told him that I told her to make them for me, that I didn't have time. He apologized profusely once again. I told her that I was consulting my attorney in the am to see what legal action I can take. She said that there would be no proof on her computer. One of my neighbors told her she forgot that she e-mailed some of those fliers and she had one on her computer that she had saved and that she was going to print off and show me because she knew that I wasn't that crazy to have a layaway plan. As we were leaving I over heard her husband tell her to get her things and get out, that this was the last straw. Evidently, a lot more has been going on than we are aware of. My neighbors know that if they are in need of anything that I always work with them.

OMG...that was more intense than I expected...

Do you think she would cross the line into being dangerous?...she's bound to see herself as the victim and you the villain who caused all her troubles.

She doesn't seem stable...the flyers put it over the

I hope you follow through and contact your lawyer and go down to the police station and see about filing a harrasment claim- even in you have no intention of actually going through with it.

You will at least have steps documented outside you and your neighborhood in case she tries anything else.

I forgot to mention that the neighbor that bought all that stuff for Halloween took it all back. 2 years ago we had a huge Halloween party and I had really over done the decoration area. I got my boys to pull out all the decorations including the blowup haunted house and help her decorate. That's where they are now. I also am helping her with the catering, so remember me while I am up all night. I just feel like she shouldn't suffer at the hands of cookie monster.

You are such a good person, Paula. I was hoping you would say you were helping her out (not that you had to, but because I felt bad for her because that psycho tricked her)

deleting does NOT erase a file.

it merely removes the listing of the file from the directory.

the file disappears a bit at a time as other files are overwritten into the area it occupies. And that process is far from perfect -- large sections of the original file can be left for later reconstruction.'

analogy -- in an office building -- the room does not cease to exist just because the room is no longer rented and the listing is taken off the directory board in the lobby!

a computer forensic specialist will be able to find it all too easily.


call the attorney

file a formal complaint with police demanding they seize her computer as evidence.

My mother taught me that you always help people and I have really tried hard to teach my 3 boys that as well. Our neighborhood families do not have a lot of money and I just hated to disappoint the kids that were looking forward to thisl. What burns me is the the cookie monster. her husband is really great. This is his second marriage. He was married to her when he had to deploy to Iraq. My mother and I would go grocery shopping for them and made sure that the kids had Christmas. He came back for Iraq wounded (he's ok now) and there is not a day goes by still today that he doesn't tell me how much he appreciated what we did for his family. He is the type of person that if You have a problem he's there for you, just like the rest of the neighbors, she started out that way, I don't know what happened.

If she used to be nice, it really does sound like she's having some mental issues. Hopefully, she'll seek professional help.
