    My missus comes in every night and I get a complete run down of her day. Tonight is was; some car on the M4 this morning, some Jo Malone body or bath oil I’m not sure what, a new green top, something about her memory card in her phone and the bloke in the shop saying something or other, something about something at work. Then she has spent the last hour telling her mate exactly the same on the phone – and I’m trying to watch The Bill.

    Does my ******* head in.

    Steady on G…I didn’t mean for this to be a man vs women thing. In fact we’ve got a bloke at work who just goes on about everthing all the time (admittedly he is one of them, so I don’t know if that makes a difference.)

    Pete – I have perfected the art of pretending to listen.

    Very occasionally I get caught out when there is a pause and a response is clearly expected but most of the time I get away with it.

    The annoying part is most of the time it is utterly meaningless, trivial irrelevant stuff. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    Aaaaah! Use the ‘key word’ method – it works for me and it’s really simple.

    E’g. If there’s a woman that she bitches about quite often – in my case it’ll be ‘Jackie’ – simply mumble "stupid bitch" whenever she either pauses for breath or a response.

    Genius – and like you say so simple :D

    Be careful she is not talking about the mother in law or you might get a slap in the face. :lol:
