Tales of ordinary madness

Overheard this afternoon in Costa:

"Sue? Who the Hell's Sue?" A pause. "Oh, you mean complete nutter Sue? The failed psychopath."

A while later:

"No, I lost my duck."

News that cannot end well:

Not content with bringing us the Maennergarten, and the automated waiterless restaurant, Germany is now also home to the world's first drop-in advice centre for stalkers.

I think the idea's to help them stop, rather than offering hints and tips, but still, you wouldn't want to work there. Imagine it:

"You've stopped stalking your ex? That's wonderful, Dieter. When did this happen?"

"Well, you remember that car that was outside your house all night..."

Was there any suggestion that Sue (or the duck) were from Germany?

Not all Sue's are like that, 'ducky'!

No, some are sometimes anonymous, I suspect...

M-C: Hmm, I quite like the idea (that you've now put into my head) of someone being stalked by a duck...

Don't think either were German, though. Although I was reading about an Austrian at the time.

You have now put an image of Lassnig's Don Juan d’Austria into my head.

Ah. Sorry about that, Taiga.

somehow, using 'Dieter' as the generic refeormed stalker name makes it especially hilarious.

reformed, I meant, of course.

Then that extra few minutes trying to think of names other than Gunther, Hans, and Boris was all worth it. Thanks :)
