Hello, welcome to the website. My name isXXXXX can assist you with this.
What would you like to know about this please?
I would like to know if is there any way to stop her from saying these awful things?
It's a nasty thing to be saying, that's for sure, but an I ask why she is doing this to you?
It was our mutual friends wedding. They fell out and I attended the wedding. She was horrible to Sam my friend for weeks after. Sam has moved away (probably due to the terrible case involving her father in law) I think I must be an easy 'target' for her ugly mouth. I am really more concerned about my grandchildren aged 4,3 and 2 and how others may think if they believe these lies. I am very confused, sorry
Is she doing this to harass you?
I don't know really as we are both in our 50s.
Well, if it's done to harass you, then you should be able to prevent her from doing this.
I would suggest, in the first instance, that you speak with the police, as harassment is a criminal offence.
They will warn her first - before doing anything more formal.
Well I am very relieved that the police may be able to help. Its so unbelievable that I feel that I have entered some surreal place :(
I can imagine - if you feel you want to pursue this afterwards (hopefuly, with the police involved, you wont need to) then you could potentially issue a claim in the civil courts too.
I think that if the police warned her, then that would be enough for me. I live in a small town. I was a Rainbow leader for 5 years (20 years ago) Something like this could escalate beyond all proportions. I often collect my grandchildren from school and playgroup
Then the police seems like a sensible first step for you, and hopefully, that's all it will ever need. Is there anything more you want me to address for you at all?
No, thank you. I can't tell you how much better I feel for having your advice. Jan
Thanks Jan. I hope you manage to resolve this quickly. Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX a good evening.
You too :)
