I was brought up to be well mannered and eavesdropping was a definite No! No!
However, for the writer this despicable practice would seem to be acceptable (well it is in some of the writers' self-help books that I have read).
On a bus going to Newcastle yesterday I overheard the following conversation between two 17ish girls.
Girl 'A' was complaining about her boyfriend being selfish and childish.
Well he did go straight from one relationship into another. Not that you are a rebound or anything.
You think I'm just a rebound?
No! I didn't say that. Err... I'll put it another way. Which would you rather be, happy and a rebound or sad and have no-one?
