A call to the police making a complaint that a thief has stolen the elderberry bush?Un-*******-believable!!!
She was on the phone to her sister (who lives next door) just now "I'm going out shortly to cut down the elderberry which is poking up through the beech hedge" she says.
"Oh" says her sister "Wasn't N**** going to do that tomorrow?"
"Hold on", says I, "I cut the elderberry yesterday in front of you whilst you were on the patio - no-one needs to do it, it's already done. I'm waiting for it to dry out before I pull it out and put it through the chipping machine".
Cue a massive broadside from Mrs Dave because a) I didn't tell her I'd cut the elderberry (even though she saw me do it) and b) she had written the job on her whiteboard yesterday and I should have seen the note.
She's still going on about me being a controlling **** and she shouldn't need permission to do things......
Bewildered? Moi? She's difficult enough to live with as it is with her suffering from NPH (a form of dementia) but this is taking it to a different level. I have to say that most of the time she'll have forgotten this spat by tea time, but this may just linger in her memory bank for just a few hours longer.
Ho hum, let's see what tomorrow brings.
Sounds like my SWMBO shes getting very snappy, stompy and slamdoory and getting worse by the day TBH!Getting stressed over the whole Covid19 thing (ever present gloom from media fcukwits not a help) and getting snappy because, horror of horrors:
"I am risking my life going shopping and all you two (self and No.2 son) do is eat and drink it all!"
I didn't help by laughing
Does not bother me either. I work from home as much as is possible and probably getting on for a month now since I set foot in my workplace.Sounds like my SWMBO shes getting very snappy, stompy and slamdoory and getting worse by the day TBH!
Personally the social isolation isnt bothering me to much at all as I am an anti social bastard at the best of times

But Mrs B....
Oh dear. Getting quite twitchy and irritable which is not merely tiresome for me but making dogs a bit stressed as well.

Watch out if your glass of Sauvignon Blanc smells of chlorine.....SWMBO announces she is going to walk to local shop for some essential but unnamed items that she cannot s
do without and arrives back with a bottle of bleach and 3 bottles of white wine!
I fall over laughing pointing out that wine is hardly an essential to which her reply is "but we needed bleach!".
Ya just cannot reason with her...
