Was I wrong ?

My M.P. ( God Bless him ! ) has been quite helpful to me of late and last week I thought that I'd repay him by offering assistance with constituency matters. In the end it was agreed that I'd get the family out distributing leaflets when it was necessary. This seemed like an easy task to accomplish and I therefore sat back to await the call come next general Election.
Last Saturday, and I'd gotten rid of the kids in order to to host a mammoth ****-up to celebrate the hoped for England Rugby World Cup victory. OK, we lost but this did not reduce one whit the amount of alcohol consumed ; so Sunday morning rolls around and I am still in bed at 10 o/clock nursing a colossal hangover and hanging on to the bed posts to stop the room whirling around. The doorbell rings and rings and rings until I shout at "'er Indoors" to get out of the shower and answer the bloody door ! Thinking that it might have been the kids turning up early, she throws a towel around herself and answers the doorbell. On it stands a party worker wanting to discuss the distribution of political leaflets. She dealt with him very well, I thought, knowing that I'd have been just a little terse with him ! The next day I sent off a very angry email to my M.P. Was I wrong ?

Re: Was I wrong ?

I think a note to say Sunday mornings are not the time
to approach people is in order.

'Least it wasn't the bloody WatchTower lot.

Not out of order if he turned up unannounced on a Sunday morning.

Not out of order, considering his minion got to see Mrs Lyden-Brown in just a towel.

Is she hot?




(Only kidding!)

I wouldn't want anyone knocking on the door on a sunday morning!

Was the party worker very small as he's standing on the doorbell?

Re: Was I wrong ?

Sundays are out of order really. Day of rest and all that? Even more necessary when saturday is as good as a working day for most people.

Re: Was I wrong ?

Sunday morning is a bit wrong. But many people don't see Sunday morning as off limits due to kids, church, general discipline etc.

Its a bit of a gray area really.

You are a sensitive little soul, aren't you? I haven't "buggered off" as you so tastefully put it, it is just that I do have a life to live outside of this Forum, splendid though it is !

Asking my M.P. for assistance doesn't make me a Tory, even if he is ! It does, though, make me smart since any intervention from an M.P. will get things moving at the speed of light , especially when it is a Government ministry that is being a pain !

I, too, thought it odd that he was standing on the door bell, but I was still in bed so didn't see him. I asked "'er Indoors" for any explanation, but having gotten cold with only a towel around her, she jumped back into bed to get thoroughly warmed up again. Did she ?
You bet she did, since the words "Chapel" and "hat" and "pegs" sprang to my mind !
