We've turned the heating off

The heating is going on and off like a tarts knickers as the weather is so changeable here.

Steve is currently complaining because I don't know when Easter is, I googled it but he doesn't like my reply.

I went for lunch with Betty today, it's so good to get out of the flat for a few hours.

A resident stopped me today to tell me I shouldn't keep going for lunch with Betty as she may decide to stop taking me out at some point.

Of course Betty may stop taking me out, it's her choice, I can hardly insist. But why the resident feels I need to stop going out, I have no idea.

I'm aware that many people living in complexes such as yours get over interested in the lives of their neighbours, but to actually voice their opinion is unbelievably rude!
I wonder who died and made her Queen of the May?

Aren't people so much fun?!?! Who knows why she said that ...... and do you really care? Wish I were there and I would take you out!!

Exactly..jealousy. I think Betty enjoys your company and you have a nice time out with her! Enjoy!

This person could be jealous.
Steve could have said something to them.
Some people are just ass hats.
They are unhappy and they just don't want others happy.
Be sure to offer to put gas in Betty's car.
Pay for her lunch. Make her feel appreciated.
She probably has an idea how hard your life has been.
I would take you out if I lived near you too!

Jealousy, put up to it by Steve are the two that spring to mind immediately. Betty likes your company and as long as you both enjoy the outings, I hope they continue for many weeks to come. Catriona
