My ex mother in law, on being asked by ex husband if she could help out with childcare for a few days in summer holidays (and I heard her over the phone screaming this at him - ex had called me to talk to son as he was upset at her going mental) 'why does she have to be so special and have a job, I didn't work when I was a single mum'. In fact she never worked a single day in her life, lazy cow.
Even my hairdresser, on seeing his pic said " is he really your bf? I just imagined someone, well, different"
And I once got asked in a bar " is that your bf? You gotta be joking, doll" Then as bf got the giggles at the horror of him my would be rescuer said, gestulating at his large scary looking male companion " want my mate here to get rid of him?!"
Some people are horrid. I notice they love the drama though, until it happens to them.
Not so much crass words as crass actions. A few weeks after he'd gone it was our wedding anniversary and a bouquet of flowers arrived. I thought it was some grand attempt at reconciliation until I read the card that came with them ..... and found they were from my well-intentioned but very insensitive DM. Talk about dashed hopes.
Ha KingRollo, he wasn't George Clooney, but he was a model. He was very bright and we were together for years. Nice to know that so many of my co-workers were looking at me behind my back thinking, "woof! what is he doing with her".
We are still good friends. But I guess the right Kate Moss never came along for him. Which is a shame to waste such handsome genes.
