Couple enter 'everything partner does is annoying' phase of relationship

A COUPLE have confirmed they have been together long enough to begin hating each other a bit.

Lauren Hewitt and Joshua Hudson started dating three years ago and, since moving in together recently, have fully committed to identifying each other’s most irritating habits.

Hewitt said: “I fell in love with Josh for his sense of humour and carefree attitude to life, but it’s his appalling domestic habits and loud breathing that have become my focus.

“I can now see what an enraging and thoughtless slob he is so I know what we have together is real. My behaviour also seems to infuriate him, so it’s reassuring to feel we’re both serious about this relationship.

“I don’t want to jinx things, but I reckon after a few more months of this we’ll be ready to start thinking about breaking up over wedding plans.”

Joshua Hudson commented: “I know Lauren better than anyone in the world, which is unfortunate because she’s a f**king nightmare.

“I guess it must be time to buy a ring.”

The gammon's guide to a vegan dinner party

ARE you a gammon invited to a vegan dinner party about to endure your first meat-free meal since accidentally going to a hippy’s house in 1979? Here’s how to survive.

Call everything ‘rabbit food’

Spend the entire evening cracking excellent jokes like: “This chickpea salad looks great, but now you’ve fed the rabbits, what are we having?” Don’t let the increasingly strained silence deter you from repeating the exact same joke before every course.

Make up some health warnings

A lifetime of hoovering down animal carcasses with the verve of a medieval king at a feast has left you puce-faced and addled with gout. But that won’t stop you thwacking a wobbling fist on the table and ranting about how nutritionally unbalanced vegan diets are.

BYO meats

You’re worried that your body will go into shock from the volume of vegetables in the suspicious ‘curry’ they’ve cobbled together. To ensure your delicate system gets the fix of processed salt and nitrates it so desperately craves, gaffer-tape some slices of ham to your legs to eat whenever you go to the bathroom.

Grill your hosts

By the time they’re whisking away your untouched main you should be drunk enough to be relentlessly pressing them on any inconsistencies in their life choices. “If a terrorist said they’d shoot me unless you eat a Fray Bentos steak and kidney pie, would you do it?”

End the night with a takeaway

When talk turns to bringing out the dairy-free cheesecake, it’s time to make your excuses and reveal that you need to shoot off at 9:30 on the dot, as there’s a taxi waiting to take you to pick up the pepperoni pizza you’d ordered.
