Help! How do you cope with a mad man...

For the last year I have given a lift to college a chap who lives a few doors down. He happpens to be a university friend of Mr Cats brother.

But he is doing my head in....he arrives at my house at 8.15am when I am in the midst of getting 3 boys ready yet demands my attention..

We get to college then at lunch time he goes to the pub and gets semi ****ed..I have to breath his fumes all afternoon = then run him home.

I have had enough, he is 47, selfish but dangerous. I have sent a note round saying I can't take him in tomorrow..(didn't give an excuse but it will be that I had to go into work early). Mr Cat is concerned as he is a nutter.

As said he is 47, never had a job, stil lives with his parents - as do all of his brothers.....they block up my victorian drain with newspaper...its a nightmare

good luck with that. sounds like you are a bit cornered with this lift thing. you could say that your work hours have changed and leave earlier for a while to break the habit of the lift. when you say 'mad' what do you mean? you have, of course, a right to not to continue to do this but as he lives right beside you, then it could be really awkward for you as well.

Re; the blocking of the Victorian Drain with newspaper ... I need more detail on this before I can pronounce this gentleman as mad? Do his whole family come round especially to stuff your Victorian drain with newspaper? ... or is it a euphemism?

He is a Manic Depressant...so he tells me.

In my eyes he is a lazy git who hasn't worked for his adult life - nor has the whole of his family....they would all rather be mad than work.

Tonee, please dont' think I am being un sympathetic, because I am not

This guy is a lazy, selfish slob. Blow him out completely and avoid.

Ooh, definitely an awkward situation Cat. Very difficult to tell him you can't give him a lift anymore when you're both going to the same place. Have you considered getting a bike?

Tell him to catch the bus Cat!

Oh dear! Sounds like a nutter.
Send him to me for a good hiding :boxing:
