A WOMAN going through a rough time cannot believe how quickly a friend hijacked the conversation and made it all about their own problems.
Susan Traherne visited Nikki Hollis to console her over a recent break-up but turned the conversation towards her trivial work and life problems in under a minute.
Hollis said: “I can’t understand how we went from the breakdown of my eight-year relationship to discussing how she deserves a desk by a window.
“My ex, who I loved, went off with a woman he’d only known for three weeks, but somehow Susan managed to relate that to having one of her holiday requests denied.
“Even when we hugged goodbye I felt like I was the one doing the hugging.”
Traherne said: “I was dreading going over because I thought it would be really upsetting, but actually I feel great after getting all that stuff off my chest.
“Especially the hassle I had getting a new sofa delivered. It’s good to lend an ear.”
