â€œYou have to think beyond it, otherwise it will eat you up inside. Â Having got over the initial shock, you have to see beyond it. Â Good things can happen.â€
Please guess whether the woman quoted had
a)Â Â Â Â Lost a close relative
b)Â Â Â Â Lost a limb
c)Â Â Â Â Lost a wedding dress when a â€œbridal shopâ€ closed down.
You guessed it.Â The man acting for the owner of the shop is quoted as saying â€œIn my 30 years as a solicitor, this is one of the mst vitriolic and emotional meetings [the creditorsâ€™ meeting] I have ever been at.Â For the last hour and a half, she [the owner] has endeavoured to answer all of the questions she has been asked. Â She has received a number of abusive phone calls and quasi death-threatsâ€.Â No, I donâ€™t know what a â€œquasi death threatâ€ is either but I think that we can take it that the brides are annoyed.Â I suspect that her solicitor didnâ€™t do her any favours by telling the assembled multitude, however reasonably, that â€œcustomers needed to realise it was â€˜only a wedding dressâ€™ and wasnâ€™t the worst thing in the worldâ€.Â Read more here.Â Go on, you know you want to.
Didn’t they leave it kind of late to get a dress? Do they still have shotgun weddings in ireland?
I imagine “quasi death threats” are issued by the sort of people who tell you that they “almost had a breakdown”.
GPM, I don’t think so, we’re very post modern now.
Norah, ah, that’s it.
Or even were ‘slightly pregnant’, Norah?
