A MAN gave his girlfriend every opportunity to express herself coherently at a dinner party before reluctantly speaking on her behalf.
Martin Bishop looked on for a full five seconds as his girlfriend Nikki Hollis expressed her thoughts, before saying “Well…” and putting forward his own, better opinion.
Bishop said: “I could see that Nikki was struggling. Someone had asked her a question about the American election.
“I’m on furlough so I’m on the internet all day, keeping tabs on the latest developments. She works as a nurse 10 hours a day so she’s not really in touch with the real world.”
Hollis said: “Actually I was about to say -”
However Bishop interjected: “I didn’t want Nikki to come across as vacuous. As a feminist, I believe women should speak out loud and strong, but if words desert them I’m only too willing to come to the rescue.”
Hollis said: “I was just about to -“
At this point Bishop luckily finished Hollis’ inane thoughts for her: “So I spoke up for her. I hope that through using my voice I gave her a voice. You’re welcome, sweetie. Any time.”
