Note: My brother’s birthday is Thursday. He wants a Sunday dinner for his tea.
His Nan is very old and gets confused easily.
Matt – “I’ve invited Nan for Sunday dinner.”
Mom – “Sunday dinner, Matt?”
Me – “…. Did you tell your Nan Sunday dinner?”
Matt – “Yeah, that’s what it is. … On a Thursday… No I’m sure she understood I said it was for my birthday. … But she did think my birthday was on Wednesday… Oh God, I need to go and phone her back.”
Me – “Matt! You’d left your keys in the door, you friggin idiot! Some woman just came and knocked to tell us! If she’d have felt like it she could have just let herself in with your keys and shouted up the bloody stairs rather than standing out there in the cold!”
Matt – “Bloody hell….. What an idiot!”
Me – “……………….”
