Sorry for lack of an update, forgive my rudeness
Here is what happened- We ignored their calls for a few wks, or when we did answer, we were "busy". The wife of the couple continued to call and leave messages like "answer your phone, we are in the area." and the one that I thought particularly creepy "if you don't answer we are just going to come by."
No, I did not answer the phone, and thankfully they assumed we werent home and did not stop by.
A few wks later the wife called and left a voice mail crying and wondering what they had done because she had the "odd feeling" that we were ignoring them. She then proceeded to call a few more times so I broke down and sent her an email that said I think we were going different directions in life and that they didn't have the same morals that our family had and it would probably be best if we didn't see each other anymore.
She called a few more times, crying and shouting, to which I ignored.
There is a subpart to this story too. Unfortunatly, before any of this happened, the husband came to visit my husband at work one day (he wordks at a classic car place, and people can come and look at the cars). While he was there he managed to get himself hired as my husband's boss designing a new website. He was supposed to have it up and running in a few months.
A yr later he still had not finished and they had to fire him. The good news is, before the boss hired him, my hubby made sure to let him know that in no way was his friendship to this person to be a factor in anything should things sour later down the road (thank goodness he was thinking ahead!)
So since then we have had no more contact with him and I have very much learned my lesson.
Thank you so much everyone for all of your input it is sooooov very appreciated!
