I Hate Leeches
In person, it seems Kate is not nearly so venomous as her blogging would have us believe.
She seems like a bit of a sweetheart, actually, and man, do leeches like her neighbor know how to take advantage.
Problem is, Kate wants to establish a boundary, assuming the neighbor is reasonable. But there's the bad assumption. The neighbor isn't reasonable, and there's probably no way to establish such a boundary as one might establish with a good, reasonable neighbor. The boundary, in this case, is almost certainly to be a "sorry, I can't help you" for a while. For a long while. Maybe forever.
Kev <--- feeling like a post-objectivist hardass today.
