] I once read of definition of "home" that said "Home is that place where when go there they have to take you in." Sounds like Lady Susan was at the point where she had no options and the Vernon's had no option but to take her in. Social rules like these can be both a blessing and a curse, can't they? ;-)
Your quotation is from Robert Frost's "The Death of the Hired Man, Cheryl. I know lots of useless stuff. :-}
I agree with you--she was completely taking advantage of the social code that pretty much required the Vernons to take her in, and in this case it was a curse.
