Beware of “friends”


Dear Hillary,

One of the blokes I have a beer with is always telling us what a great Sheila his wife is. They’ve been married for a few years, but we know she’s got a bit on the side. We’ve tried to make him look beyond the tip of his old feller, but no good at all. What should we do now, Hillary?


Dear Bluey,

You must be an Aussie and Aussies are known for being straight to the point. So here you are, Petal. Bug out. You are not your mate’s keeper. You don’t know what his domestic situation is like. Just be there if or when he asks for help, otherwise forget it.
