    What do you think of them? Have you seen this happen in your own life?

    Sort of, "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me." A thousand ways to skin that cat, huh?

    All right, I'll give you the spill. My wife and I are separated. Someone has been calling her job and telling her nasty and untrue things, but they've always called private. Funny thing that whoever it was forgot to dial private last week, and lo and behold, we ran the call log, it was a "dear friend" of mine. I'm hard to trust people in general, and after having given someone a tad of trust, one ends up being bitten again. Keep your grass short.

    So are you seperated because your ex wife didn't keep her grass short? I'm a little dense and don't understand.

    In all seriousness, your friend is a true snake and should be treated like one.

    Ah, that's different then, isn't it?

    So she's telling you all the awful things she's being told? That's good for you, I think. :cool:

    And your "dear friend" needs a hickory shampoo.
