Not to mention holding her engagement party there. Or one of them.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

Wow - Mel's gonna feel pretty silly if, after all this, her boyfriend doesn't even propose!  >:D

Maybe it's Evil TL speaking but I want to encourage Mel to come visit the house in March. And remind the homeowner to turn on the security system....

Wouldn't matching his-and-hers trespassing charges make a great engagement present?  >:D

So Lara has been reading the forum as a guest (I sent her the link to this post) and feels better that her reaction/way of saying "no" didn't deserve Mel's temper tantrum.  Mel has called a few more times with no voicemails, Lara is ignoring her for now.  I encouraged her to ignore her for the foreseeable future.  I'll let y'all know if anything else etiquette-ly interesting happens.

I think Mel deserves to be ignored for all eternity, actually.

Since you said that your friend was a "people pleaser", I suspect this was the very very first time your friend said No without changing it to a Yes. 

I think Mel's reaction was really "How dare she say no to me!"

Well, that might turn out to take some spine on his behalf, because by the sounds of it she is someone who will command him exactly how, where, when and with what ring to propose.
