I was accused of betraying a friend’s confidence when her marriage broke up and she lost her job.
There were a number of contributory factors to this, one of which being it’s difficult to be someone’s alibi if you don’t know you’ve been nominated.
We’d invited D over for a meal because he was on his own on a Friday night.
We had a pleasant dinner, and conversation was flowing.
What I didn’t know (and later explained his initial confusion) was that I was supposed to be out with his wife on a Girlie evening and he’d accepted our invitation thinking it was to be a Guys night.
Apparently, ‘us girls’ went out three nights a week, when actually she was seeing three different guys.
As for the confidence, it goes back over 40 years and I never told a soul.
However, her husband knew, and if you think a woman scorned can be harsh ………….
