A WOMAN who began a conversation by saying she ‘knows she should count her blessings’ has gone on to moan for absolutely f**king ages.
Nikki Hollis told her friend Eleanor Shaw she wanted to ‘catch up’ when she actually meant ‘go on a massive rant about homeschooling, her job and her partner for an hour and a half’.
Shaw said: “Next time Nikki says ‘I know things could be worse for me’ I will nod grimly and tell a story about someone who has lost their job, home and dog due to Covid.
“Because if I say something supportive like ‘Yes, but your problems are still valid’ she starts whining about how her husband loads the dishwasher wrong for several laps round the park.
“Then I feel obliged to complain about something too, to make her feel better. So now even my last remaining pleasure of going for a walk with a friend is f**king miserable too.
“Next time I’m taking ear plugs.”
