A MAN who has arrived within a 3.6 mile radius of his house instantly knows that his partner is in a foul mood.
Will McKay was driving home from Sainsbury’s when he was hit by the full force of the mood, which he instantly knew was because his partner Nikki has discovered he had left the washing up to ‘soak’ in the sink.
He said: “Oh shit. It’s on. Should I pull over? To build up the mental strength? Or will delaying only make it worse?
“If I’m feeling it this far out, it’s bad. It could even be worse than the mood she gets in every time I do a ridiculously shouty sneeze. The closer I get, the more oppressive it is.
“Oddly, if she was in a sunny, cheerful mood I’d only feel it a mile or so out; it wouldn’t have the same penetrative force. Complex moods I only get when I turn into the drive. Whereas bad moods go all the way past the county boundary.”
McKay then arrived home, steeled himself, walked in through the front door and was told to “do a job properly for once, you idle bastard” within four seconds.
