And let's face it, it's not like she wasn't told by one of the mutual friends. In fact, she didn't even bother to reply to him.
You may remember that in a blog last week, I said he lied. I felt that he had and I had told him that, hell, he reads my blog anyhow - so he knew that was how I felt. He denied it of course, but then that is how it usually works. The worst person I ever went out with was a PI. He used to laugh at the men caught out; they would deny it right up until you could see their face in the photo.
It’s not that I distrust him. Mostly, I do trust him – but I go with the gut. Last week when I suspected he lied to me, I changed the phone settings so that the sent messages are retained. So I ask again if he had told her when the funeral was. It's not a big deal, he could have said yes and I would have ranted at him a bit and called him a Moodle, big deal. He says no, but this time the story changes slightly. He only told a friend of his...
So of course, I look at the sent messages and low and behond. There it is. In black and white. Sent to "many". The friend, and the wife.
I'm not a bad snooper but I'm not great at keeping it under wraps. I mean common sense would be to not alert him to the fact that I had checked, and he would blithly go on. Of course I can't do that. I'm far too busy steaming because not once, but twice - he looked me in the fact and lied to me. And about..? The same issue we have had since day dot. The wife.
And in the face of my anger, he just continued to lie about it… “I did not” then when the phone is tossed at him – “I don’t know how that…” Blah blah
