I do love you but....

As I was sitting on the 149 yesterday, I couldn't help but overhear a conversation (ok so I was listening in but I need material for this blog dammit!) A couple were sitting at the very back of the bus. The girl, blonde and skinny looking, was holding her boyfriend's hand - he looked older and was staring out of the window and bouncing his knee in an agitated fashion for most of the time. He looked pretty pissed off and if the snippet of conversation that I heard was anything to go by, I could understand why.

She said, "I do love ya, you know that. But if we go to that party and you look at another girl's tits I'll fucking kill ya!"

Poor guy....or poor girl?

"Excuse me, you've got something on your chin"

A guy got on the bus the other day. He had on a crisp looking pin-stripe suit - the kind that looked expensive. He had expensive looking glasses too and is hair was slicked back - in a greasy fashion. As he climbed aboard he had just put the remnants of what looked like his dinner into his mouth - a burger of some kind. He stood right in front of me and glanced in my direction. To my horror, he had mayo all over his chin - so much so that as random people passed him to get off the bus they were actually laughing out loud to themselves or friends. I felt a bit sorry for him but he also looked like a bit of a twat - I can't quite explain why - I think it was the way he yawned without putting his hand over his mouth thus revealing the contents of his mouth. He looked completely ridiculous and it did liven up an otherwise slow journey - but the question is, should I have pointed out his mayonnaise faux-pas or was I right in continuing to let him look like a greedy five-year old, thus carrying on the grotesque entertainment? Answers on a postcard/blog please.....
