] There is something very wrong with that woman and I am trying to pigeonhole it. To begin with, she is full of contradictions. So far, I have identified the following ones:
] 1) She is afraid people will think her ungrateful and therefore she makes a point of acknowledging her "thanks" every five minutes; however, at the same time, she suffers "gratefulness" as a "martyrdom". And make everybody realises it.
] 2) She mistrusts people's intentions and is more concerned with appearances than substance. It is the means that matters to her.
] 3) She is very much worried about being a bother to and imposing on other people; however, she manages to do that all the time.
] 4) She seems very concerned with keeping all the rules of propriety but, nevertheless, consorts with Miss Lavish, who, in fact, is not as proper as she should be.
] 5) She gets offended if people are kind to her.
] Can somebody think of any others?
