A WOMAN has confirmed a friend running late really was only the 10 minutes away that she claimed.
Nikki Hollis, who was meeting old pal Emma Bradford for lunch, received a text five minutes before their agreed meeting time from her friend saying she was ‘only 10 minutes away!’ but then, 10 minutes later, was shocked to find it was true.
She said: “It’s made me question everything I thought I knew.”
“Like anyone would, I assumed Emma was a normal, trustworthy person so I’d settled down for a wait of at least 30 minutes. I’d ordered an aperol spritz to enjoy the coming stream of excuses.
“But then at 12.35pm on the dot she comes breezing in like it’s nothing. It felt like time and space had bent around her. Like the immutable laws of the universe aren’t real.
“Honestly, I almost s**t myself.”
Hollis has now ended the friendship.
