A MOTHER heartlessly led her adult son to believe their phone conversation would shortly be coming to an end.
Mary Fisher had been talking to son David for over 30 minutes when she suggested she had “better not stay on too long”, a blatant lie.
David Fisher said: “I thought we both felt the conversation had reached its natural conclusion because we were down to talking about dad’s new trowel.
“Then she clearly implied she was going. That was untrue. Instead she started talking about the cake thing she’s doing this weekend with Margaret from her coffee morning and we were right back into it.”
Another 25 minutes went by before the conversation finally did conclude after David had been updated on the life of a neighbour he barely knows.
David added: “Thank god Bake Off was about to start or we could have been there all night talking about random shit like scarves.”
Mary Fisher said: “I do love catching up with David. He can go on a bit though.”
