“I won’t be here when you get back Sandy.’

“What, I’ve got a few hours off and your buggering off out.’

“I’m… I’m leaving you.’

“Don’t talk daft woman, what for?’

“I’ve had enough Sandy, look it’s for the best.’ We are going in different directions. You want different things to me. You are working away most of the time and when you are home you are out most of the day playing golf.’

“Well forgive me for earning a living and putting food on the table whilst you go swanning off shopping and spending what I earn.’

“I’ve rang my solicitor and I’ve filed for a divorce.’

“You have, have you, and what makes you think that I’m going to give you a divorce?’ On what grounds.’

“I’ve cited irreconcilable differences.’


“Yes, I could have cited adultery.’

“Well what did you expect me to do, you weren’t giving me what I needed.’

“Like I said Sandy, you want different things to me, this way you will be free to do as you please.’   

 “Well there’s gratitude for you, I work hard and because I spend a couple of hours on the golfing range you are divorcing me.’

“Yes, I don’t love you anymore Sandy, you’ve hurt me.’

“Are you seeing someone?’


“I see, is it any one I know?’

“No, you don’t know him.’

“How long has this been going on then?’

 “Not long.’

“Are you sleeping with him?’

“That’s no concern of yours.’

“No concern, my wife is whoring with some bloke and you say it’s no concern of mine.’

“You started this Sandy by going to prostitutes.’

“Well if you weren’t so crap in the bedroom I wouldn’t have had to go elsewhere would I; he shouted.’
