There is absolutely no reason for the OP to apologize. "I'm sorry that you feel that way" is exactly what I would say.

And in reference to other posters comments, it would not matter to me what George or Mary did, they are two adults. That is between them. The only time I would hold a feeling for or against one member of this former relationship is if there was abuse involved, and I see no mention of that.

Family and Children / Re: MIL and her "request"

It's her way or the highway?  I guess it's the highway then.

That won't be possible, MIL.

Yes, this.  She can choose to get over it or choose to die mad about it.  Her choice.

I had to look up what fairy bread was.  I would have been all over that as a child.

As an adult I am all over it because it is legitimately the best.

Totally agree :) Haven't had it in years (not since I lived in NZ), but it's awesome!

Ditto.  Although I must admit that I'd be hard pressed to choose between fairy bread or Nutella on fresh white bread, without crusts.

Ahem. Diversion over. Back to angry neighbours.

Why wouldnt there be two? Fred was a very common name. Do you mean, what should you do in regards to the listing that conflates them?

Is there a way to attach a link to the Helen material onto the listing that conflates the two Freds?

I changed the names of the people involved, the actual name is kind of uncommon - or I would have thought so before I started on this family tree.  We seem to have a lot of fairly uncommon names.

Zyrs,  if you want another set of eyes, you can pm the details either on here or on my ancestry account.  :)

Thanks.

I hope it is PD for a UPS driver, but I doubt it. 

My bank draft to close my house was guaranteed to arrive at my lawyer's office by noon today.  I called about 12:20 and it wasn't there.  So I got the tracking number from my bank and called UPS.  The driver apparently went there at 11:20 and said the package couldn't be delivered.  I call bull excrement on that one!  It's a law office - even at lunch time, there is always someone there.  I was pretty mad.  I got a call back that ended up going to vm without ringing and they said it would be delivered sometime today.  What?  If it didn't get there by 2:00, my house couldn't close.  So I'm calling them back, trying to find out where the driver is so I can go get the delivery myself and letting them know that if this deal didn't close today, I was expecting to be reimbursement for any extra charges from my movers and a call came through that the guy showed up.  At about 1:30.  Thanks, dude.   ::)

So glad I didn't have the movers come today; they'll be here at 9:00 in the morning.

I'm curious, is it standard practice for the purchase price to be paid by banker's draft? In the UK the money is always transferred electronically, and in England and Wales, where it's common to have a chain of sales and purchases completing on one day,  it may start from one firm of solicitors at 9am and move through several sets of client accounts during the course of the day.  I can just see our residential conveyancing team going spare if they had to wait for a banker's draft as part of the process.
