In the pet shop over the weekend, a customer and a staff member were discussing a boxing match.
"It was like me on a Saturday night," said the customer. Turning to his female companion, he continued: "But you never mind, do you love?"
She didn't look amused.
I have no idea whether this man actually does beat up his partner on a weekend, but even if he doesn't – on what planet is it OK to joke about the possibility? This came a couple of weeks after I eavesdropped on a conversation about the motivation behind the Mottingham shooting. I need to find a new pet shop.
