Why do I get the feeling that Tammy looks for ways to be difficult? I would hate to live inside her head.
That is the absolute truth about her. Here's another story from a few months ago.
Jerry's MIL had passed away, and after the funeral Jerry and his wife Gina had a small gathering at their home for friends and family. I was sick in bed, but Mr. G went over there. While he was there Jerry asked him if he could make a run to the grocery store for some ice. Mr. G was walking back to our house (in the street, not Tammy's yard) when Tammy came out and started going off to him about there being cars parked in front of her house and there were children that were running around in Jerry's backyard and had apparently inadvertently crossed over into Tammy's yard. Our neighborhood does not allow fences and it can be difficult to tell where the boundaries between some yards are, especially if you are a child that doesn't even live there. Mr. G was pretty appalled about how mean she was being. Also another note, at this point Mr. G was pretty much the last person in the neighborhood that would have anything to do with her. He tried to tell her nicely, " Tammy, Gina's mother died and they just had her funeral, give them a break." I guess she had expected him to agree with her because she then became infuriated at Mr. G, yelled at him about being a sh###y neighbor, jumped in her car and went squealing off. I was in bed and heard the squealing tires and reving engine noise so I got up to look out the window and saw her car zooming out of the neighborhood. I'm just thankful that none of those children were in the street right then!
It gets better though, Tammy has a 40 year old son, Sam, that lives with her. Sam is a nice guy, but he's not terribly bright and is the kind of person who talks and talks, barely letting anyone else get a word in and likes to tell stories about the things he has supposedly done and the people he supposedly knows. Let's just say that most of these tales aren't exactly believable. Anyway, Sam likes Mr. G a lot and often comes over to talk to him when Mr G is outside or in the garage. A couple of days after the funeral incident, Sam mentioned something about how "Mama got real mad", so Mr. G told him the truth about what happened.
A day or so after that, Mr. G was getting some tools out of the back of his truck and discovered a plastic bag with a couple of items he had loaned to Sam and Tammy with a note stapled to the bag. The note was written in red Sharpie, and basically said (the caps are necessary in this case) "YOU ARE A LIAR!!!!! DO NOT EVER COME NEAR ME OR COME ON MY PROPERTY AGAIN!!!" Of course, apparently it was okay for her to come onto OUR property to deliver this message! So now she has alienated the last person in the neighborhood who was still willing to be nice to her. Then we noticed that Sam had stopped coming over. When he finally did come over a few weeks later, he was talking to Mr. G when Tammy came out and yelled at him to get back in the house - as if he were a child. I feel sorry for him, but he's 40 years old and has a job and could move out if he wanted to.
