There was an old Christian woman who lived in one of the flats my mum used to monitor in her job as a warden of a sheltered housing scheme. She was without a doubt one of the most unpleasant people I have ever come across. She told lies about both my parents and me and spread them all around the flats. She spread the rumour that my dad was moonlighting in his job and, far worse, that at 14 I was pregnant. She had literally nothing to base this on - I never even had a boyfriend until I was 16/17. Daily, my mum was dealing with her complaints about just about anything she could find. She was one of the most vindictive, difficult, rude and scheming people it has ever been my misfortune to know.
