FOWC with Fandango — Chain

Ex partner wanted a chain, but no crucifix. Had he wanted one of those, I could have saved a fortune, but no, he wanted a thick heavy duty chain, and like an idiot because I ‘loved him’, I spent a week’s wages (£79 at the time) on one for him for Christmas.
I didn’t see him open the parcel, didn’t know if he’d even seen it, or if he liked the contents.
So I asked.
He could not have cut into my heart deeper:
‘It’s OK I suppose. You can buy me the crucifix to go on it for my birthday.’

That was the end for me. He was now a chain round my neck, choking me.
I left the relationship in 1989, and no, he didn’t get his cross.

I wear a chain now, a gift from Hubby,  with four charms on it, three of which are from him and the other from being bridesmaid when Bro got married in 1965. I never take it off.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    OMG what a jerj! Don’t blame you for leaving the relationship. I really felt this one Di.

  2. Hubby loved wearing a chain ’round his neck too. His was simple, gold and over time had to be repaired several times (because yes, gold and friction = loss of the gold). I bought him another (and let him pick it out), and then shortly he died. Maybe they DO choke ’em? In your case I hope it did and all. That guy sounds like a world class ass.

    Great post Di. It sounds like you did a good move in leaving the crucifix guy.
