Yesterday's situation: cousin Judy wants to get her hands on him, so he panicked and asked someone out for drinks/dinner, thinking that that would make Judy give up. Yeah right. Then he was surprised that Trevor and Carol reacted badly at the news that he was making plans with a woman the day after Mum's funeral.
I spoke to him for a while and suggested dropping the plan before he gets himself in too deep. I wonder what tomorrow's situation will be?
