“You have to think beyond it, otherwise it will eat you up inside. Having got over the initial shock, you have to see beyond it. Good things can happen.”
Please guess whether the woman quoted had
a) Lost a close relative
b) Lost a limb
c) Lost a wedding dress when a “bridal shop” closed down.
You guessed it. The man acting for the owner of the shop is quoted as saying “In my 30 years as a solicitor, this is one of the mst vitriolic and emotional meetings [the creditors’ meeting] I have ever been at. For the last hour and a half, she [the owner] has endeavoured to answer all of the questions she has been asked. She has received a number of abusive phone calls and quasi death-threats”. No, I don’t know what a “quasi death threat” is either but I think that we can take it that the brides are annoyed. I suspect that her solicitor didn’t do her any favours by telling the assembled multitude, however reasonably, that “customers needed to realise it was ‘only a wedding dress’ and wasn’t the worst thing in the world”.
