Damage

I was at home last night when I heard some sharp braking on the driveway. I looked out the window and my neighbour who I wrote the note to at the weekend had reversed into a van that was being driven by the mad builder who is doing the work next door. I think it was a low speed collision and any damage was really minimal, but I did feel a certain poetic justice in this. It is probably totally wrong to have felt some satisfaction...

My nephew phoned last night. He spoke to me briefly and then wanted to talk to G. I have been downgraded to being a switchboard operator, merely routing calls to the intended recipient. *sigh*

I hope you didn't cut him off ;-) TFx

TF - Cutting my nephew off wouldn't work. He would just phone back. You always have to make sure you have said goodbye to him properly or else he calls back a few minutes later to end the conversation again.

Justice is mostly poetic??

Kahless - I don't know about poetic, but perhaps often satisfying.
