In the work section I posted about my neighbor, Mrs. Gawd-Offel, who yelled at me for clearing snow off her driveway in a way that was not acceptable to her. A few days ago, I learned about something she did to another neighbor. My other neighbor, Mary, is twenty-one and a friend of mine, despite our age difference. She was married at age eighteen, and had a baby a year after. Unfortunately, things didn't work out, and they are getting divorced. Her husband moved out a few weeks ago, and took the baby with him. This was a mutual decision, as Mary knows her ex can take better care of the child. She is sad, but she knows it is the right decision. Anyway, Mrs. Gawd-Offel found out about this, and told Mary that she was a bad mother, that the baby would grow up hating her, and that she was selfish. She made Mary cry! If Mary were really selfish, she would have kept her son just to spite her husband, not cared for him, and spent the child support on new clothes. Mary used to think Mrs. Gawd-Offel was just annoying (like when she scolded me for calling Mary by her name rather than Mrs. Smith). I still can't believe someone would yell at someone for doing the right thing. Thanks for reading.
