Nosy Neighbours

10 posts in this topic

Occasionally well quite often actually I take the train to London to take advantage of the opportunities offered by that great city. Today I bump into neighbours on the train back. Who then blab to Mrs Exerter.

Why can't people keep their traps shut? When I bump into Sexy Blonde Neighbour accompanied by a man who is not Mr SBN I keep my trap shut.

Honestly, some people. OK, I can manufacture an excuse but it is expensive.

Neighbours can be a pain in the arse, in more than one way. Which is why I keep myself to myself. Are you saying you've seen your neighbour with a bloke other than her hubby? She should be the one soiling her undies...

Hope following through on and backing up the excuse wasn't too expensive...

some people just love to flippin gossip send them a book through the post on how to lead a more exciting life and stop being a sad &^^%$ , that you haven't even got time to be interested in what the sexy wpman on the corner of your street gets up to. Cannot stand people like this, I once worked with a guy who was my manager, who called up an agency I worked for and it's only bec he was paying by credit card I knew it was him. She told him I was sick and never went and I worked with that guy 48 hours later and for the next 12 months never told a single sole even after I left and the people knew what I did. It's the thing that pisses me of the most it's like playing god with people's lives.

Why can't everybody be as discreet as we punters, and the ladies we visit?

I always have a cover story worked out in advance should such a situation arise. It's paid off more than a few times and better then being put on the spot.

My cover story involved saving money by exchanging a wedge of yen at http://www.thomasexchangeglobal.co.uk/

It is genuinely true that they give a much better deal than any local bank.

But having to put some of the result into the joint account to back up my story was disadvantageous.

I don't get your point. Is it that somebody saw you on the train with an escort?

To be fair Mrs neighbour was probably making small talk and opposed to being nosy or malicious. Most people don't expect other people to be up to no good and it would be quite natural for someone to say to their neighbour in passing, 'Did Mr X mention we bumped into each other on the train last week?

Unfortunately anyone being where there aren't meant to be is at risk of being seen and this being reported back. I guess the answer is to have a plan in place.

I have many plans. But the wedge-of-yen plan was a reserve plan and cannot be re-used until I have been to Japan again. My usual plan ("I'm just off to present Newsnight") is a good one but needs to be got out in advance and is inoperative for spur-of-the-moment misbehaviour.

No, no escort on the train. That's quite a creative reading of my post, extra marks.
