My best friend is in an argument with her SIL.

The SIL thought it was best to hurt my friend through me. She has threatened to leave nasty reviews on my facebook page. And on my website.

I have banned her from my facebook page. And turned on my comment moderation for my website.

Is there anything else I can do?

My business is opening in april...... so I dont have customers that know better.

I have also saved the messages incase she does do something (I thought it was best)

Thanks for letting me vent..... i feel sick

Are you serious? How old is this woman? 12? I think your work will speak for itselt. You have taken all of the measures you can possibly take. What a looney toon. So sorry you have to deal with this family drama. I still don't understand why she has to involve you in her drama.

Really? Sounds like junior high school. I'm sorry your friend and her SIL have not grown up and learned how to use their inside voices. And I'm REALLY sorry that you have to deal with the fallout. Time for a new BFF.

I dont blame my friend. My name never came up. the SIL assumed i had a part in it.

Yea for a 31 year old woman, shes acting worse then my 2 year old.

Thansk for the support.

My work does. And I know that, its just a thorn in my side to worry, ya know?

Just stay one step ahead of her. Can you threaten to sue her for slander? Does anyone know if that's possible?

im not sure, I got my friend to send me the messages, incase she actually does anything.

I will be asking my husband when he gets home.

I jus tthink its hard to prove right?

I would be flat out telling her that her issue is between herself and the other person and BOTH have to leave you out of it.

goodluck because family issues totally suck

Do you have her phone number?
Call her if you do and simply ask her not to involve you in her childish bickering, she will be so surpirsed that you called it might shock her enough to get over it.

I do not have her number, But I wrote her a polite email stating that "what is going on is between her and jen. And I have nothing to do with it. In any case my business is a seprate issue."
