micheleFFS, thank you for your insights. Things can certainly get complicated.

I know that it looks like I'm trying to blame Jeanne, or that I'm trying to blame Janet and Jeanne. There's enough blame to go around for all three of us.

It took years for me to try to figure out Jeanne. Hey, she was 18. This was probably her first experience at having some power and control over an older guy. I'm sure she had some power and control while baby-sitting kids, but our situation was very different. I'm sure she was excited about this first-time experience, like a kid in a candy store. Back then I really thought that she had an evil streak but years later I'm more inclined to think that she just got too-caught-up in the fun and excitement of power and control.

Thanks again for your comments. I'm very very hesitant to go forward with the story about my neighbor. I really don't like her and she now feels the same way about me. Problem is, based on some comments I've seen, I think Ms. Gertrude will probably like my neighbor.
