OK, so my wife gets a phone call from a woman whom she met when they were both studying in England in 1996. They haven’t seen or spoken to each other since my wife returned 8 years back.
My first thought was, “Is she selling insurance?”
My wife verbally backhanded me across the room and said I was being mean. So we pick her up in Taipei today, as she’s spending the night at our house. The two or them go out to dinner and I take jdson home. Three hours later, they return. My wife says nothing about their dinner. I figure, Hey, it’s been a long time. Three hours isn’t that much time to catch up, but my spider sense is tingling. So I quietly ask her in the bedroom, “Did she try to sell you insurance?”
The wife says, “Yes, now be quiet.”
This is not the first time this has happened. “Old friends” appear once or twice a year, sometimes showing up with junior members of their weird makeup cult, or natural medicine cult, or the godamned insurance cults. The wife says no and then then never call again. WTF!?
I REALLY want to tell this woman off, as I feel what she’s done is incredibly low.
