The other day at work, we were discussing Miss U’s upcoming arranged marriage (she’s a Muslim) – more of which we will talk about another time.
During the conversation, one of the doctors, let’s call her Dr Snobbish, remarked:
DR S: Well, Rosie and her boyfriend are never going to get married, are they? How long have you been together now? Six years?
ME: actually, we got engaged at Christmas.
DR S: (stumbling) Oh. Right. I didn’t know that. Err…congratulations.
Yeah. So up yours, Dr Snobbish. Ha.
