I just went out to put the buggy away in the car. Two of my neighbours were out there having a chinwag, they waved over and both exclaimed that I was looking very slim and lovely . I waved back and said, 'yes it's the 5:2 diet, I've lost over a stone by sort-of fasting two days a week'.
'Well it's certainly worked for you' said my NDN.
'It really has, ' I said. 'you should try it'
What the actual jiggery is wrong with me? I didn't even really realise what I'd said until I was inside my house, and the I had the creeping shame as it dawned on me.
Please tell me it's not just me that does this. I am such an epic twat.
Don, t worry I am sure she did, nt take offense ..... It just one of those things you say , I would, nt be offended . I told my neighbour to fuck off today and I did mean it not good though as she is always sweary mary and I always stay calm . Regret it now as I have let myself down cos I am a good girl
Aw bless you, I do this sort of thing ALL the time so try not to take it the wrong way when people make comments to me. Hopefully your neighbour didn't give it a second thought, but just in case drop in how slim she's looking next time you see her!
Ha ha ha! Fantastic! I will defend you as I'm doing it too and can't stop raving about it and probably offending people in the process! Tell her you were on a 'Fast' day and had temporarily lost your marbles.
When I first moved into my current house we were decorating and I had a pair of jersey harem pant trousers on. I was putting something in the outside bin when my (lovely) neighbour came out of her house to go to her car and we said hello to each other for the first time. She commented that she liked my trousers, and said that she had a pair just the same that she loved. To which I replied "oh these? God I'm only wearing these to be scruffy as we're decorating". It was only when I got back inside that I realise just how rude I'd been!
