It's All a Case of A, B, C. A was seeing B. And that was ok for 5 or 10 minutes until B took to slapping A when she’d had a drink. B got pregnant by A and they gave the family life a go. Not long into that and A started fucking C who was married with kids but what the old man didn’t know wouldn’t hurt him. D had a crack at C too. D was A’s mate. Sometimes A had only just left when D got round there to do C. The husband never entered the equation. Somewhere down the line A and B split and C dropped out of the mix with A and D. A met E and they married closely followed by D and B. A and E had a child. D and B tortured each other from day one of their married life with B sleeping with the lodger 2 weeks into the marriage. D thrashed the lodger within an inch of his life before turning himself into the police. No charges were pressed. A and E ran into problems early on and before long when A and E could no longer stand the sight of each other F came on the scene. A and F started with their thing but before long E was causing all sorts of trouble with regards to the kid she had with A. D and B kept out of it as much as possible but that never seemed to be much. A fucked E behind F’s back. By this time D and B had fought like cat and dog over nothing and D said that’s it, I want a divorce. F and D confided in each other about their failing relationships. A told B that F was having an affair with D but this was untrue. B told A that he was a little prick. A panicked and phoned D saying he’d dropped him in it with B and that he was sorry. And it’s all collapsing around their ears. I have to sit and listen to this shit. Week in, week out. I have enough trouble with my one meaningful relationship let alone having to take on their soap opera lives. Confused? You should be.
