INGRATITUDE: Good Deeds Gone Bad….

MY MY STORY

I’m friends with my neighbor for as long as I live on my block… We get together quite often almost daily some weeks.. and we share a lot about our lives …

Her eldest sister resides in Africa for over thirty years and she doesn’t get to see her very often..

Miss Perfect came for a two weeks visit which spiral into a four months stay..

My neighbor didn’t mind so much because she lives so far away and she thought that spending some quality time with Miss Perfect will be good..

Anyways..

Seeing that I spend so much time with her.. I became friends with Miss perfect… I liked her and I was fascinated with all her stories of Africa which she takes great pride in telling always making sure I know exactly how well off and how high class she is…

Not to mention only big wig executives she entertained.. and everyone else who is not in this class .. she does not associate with…

It didn’t bother me none.. because everyone has their preferences and has a right to their choice of living ..

And I was very proud of her that she has done so well for herself…

Well we started to have coffee ☕️ together when my neighbor is at work.. I like her company and like her conversations…

We became close enough I thought..that when she asked me the favor of using my credit card 💳 to pay for using a app online I willingly agreed…

She gave me the cash and I put the payment through…

Now a week later I noticed my card was billed for twice the amount we agreed on..

I overreacted and immediately call the bank to dispute the charges before I even spoke to her…

I call her and tell her what I saw and Also told her I disputed the charges with my bank..

She said she did not know why that happened but she realizes that she had two accounts..

The app was new to her and she didn’t quite understand how to work it.. I personally think she mistakenly summited another account but blatantly refused to admit that she made that error mistakenly…

I dropped the subject telling her that The bank will take care of the charges…the next week the bank spoke to me to let me know that my dispute is in process and will be investigated and they will let me know in time what will be decided..

The agent informed me that the charges may not be overturned..

Because it has been paid already..

I sent Miss Perfect a text to update her on what I found out.. and let her know that if they decided not to take it off she will be responsible for that extra charge plus all bank charges incurred…

Oooh maan…

She didn’t like that and she acted as if I was cheating her out of her money…

I told her I will just wait to see what the bank do before we continue with this discussion… she wasn’t at all pleased about me telling her that she is responsible for the charges on my card..

She acted so silly and naive about it all it makes me wonder about her intellectual level…

She claims to be so smart and experienced in so much because she has a doctorate in something…. and look at me like I’m the illiterate one…because I don’t happen to have a college degree in nothing…

I smile 😊… shake my head…

I knew better….

I sense some form of INGRATITUDE…

Why am I sensing ingratitude ..???!!

Instead of being grateful that I am willingly doing a service of good deed… for a person in need of my help??!!!!!

Instead of being grateful that Im willingly doing a service of a good deed…for a person in need of my help…

She becoming mean and acting as if I’m deceitful …

So I talked to my neighbor about it…it’s her sister anyways and I didn’t want to show my wrath when I actually agreed to this arrangement between us… and I didn’t want the hostility and tension..

My neighbor calmly advises me to just wait for the outcome because if the bank dispute the charges then everything will clear up..

I totally agreed..

And the bank did dispute it and she lost her account…

We put it behind us and try to maintain our relationship…

Now a month later..

she has asked another favor….

TO BE CONTINUED….

See if I agree or not….

    1. Well I was there at the moment in question…

      And I was more than willing to help..

      So she didn’t have to look any further…

      And for the record..

      She and her siblings are not really on good terms….

      I’m starting to understand and see why…

      But I’m still keeping out of she and her family business affairs
      And I’m expecting her to leave sooner than later

    1. Hahahaha..
      George…

      I was thinking along with the lines..
      But it’s takes some of us.( me)

      A little time to really learn that valid lesson…
      You just can’t be too kind to those who don’t know how to appreciate the act…
      Because they think they are so entitled to be served and think everyone is in their obligation…

      They don’t even have the common decency to realize how rude and ungrateful they really are

  3. All stuck in it and with it..

    Without money 💴 you have nothing…
    it’s the difference between rich and poor…

    We can’t eat bread 🥖 without that money 💴…
    We can’t wear clothes with money 💴
    We can’t live in a house without money 💴….

    What a control on life….
