    If you don't know, you don't know. It's not stupid to ask.

    Who or what is Della Mitrie?

    Me <aghast >
    Her "blanket! wet blanket!"






    <Watching -that- WC 66 goal>
    Her "Bobby Charlton died of cancer"
    Me "No"
    Her <furious > "yes he did"
    Me "FFS he's a director at ManU"
    Her "oh Bobby Moore then"

    Had a phone call yesterday - wife answers.

    Bloke is asking about a bank a/c we have and that he's checking about possible fraudulent activity.

    Wife goes off on one about scams and how can he sleep at night and hangs up on him.

    Me: who was that?

    Her:First Direct so they said

    Me: Do you recall that we've been moving very large amounts of money through that a/c this last few days (an a/c that normally sees 300/month)

    He: Ah - forgot (it's her sole a/c too) phone call - grovel grovel sorry sorry

    Me: All sorted dear

    Her: Yes dear

    Me: Good - gob shut thereafter

    Better that than the other option. Always phone your bank back, preferably using a different phone, or at least hang up and check for a dial tone before dialling a landline.

    Not really

    I've changed my will and disinherited the kids. I'm making other arrangements while I'm still here and when they'll benefit most. I'm in the fortunate position to do so (Toxic Elderly innit) and they are fully informed and bought in.

    Also helps with potential IHT (money is coming from the wife not me)
