A MARRIED couple have completely shut out each others’ rambling report of their day at work for the last nine years, they have confirmed.
Tom and Kelly Booker confirmed that their relationship is thriving because when they both unburden themselves at the end of a long day, they know somebody is retaining none of it.
Kelly said: “I think the last time I paid any attention it was something about James getting his PowerPoint slides in the wrong order. Since then, I’ve been blissfully unaware.
“I’m not even sure what his job is now, despite technically being present for a 30-minute monologue about it five times a week. He wears a suit, I know that. Maybe something in business?”
Tom agreed: “I call it my thinking time. While Kelly’s on about Donna’s flexitime or whatever, I muse on topics such as supercars or Batman.
“Occasionally I surprise myself by saying ‘What, again?’ or ‘That Hayley’s always been a cow’ so obviously some reflexive part of my brain has learned to respond while I remain delightfully oblivious.”
Kelly added: “It’s definitely good for our marriage. For example, when I had my two-year fling with Martin in procurement, I told Tom all about it and he was fine. He said ‘mmm’.”
