Fluent in nonsense

“Are you the Vicar?” barked the woman who was standing at the door. Seconds earlier, I saw through the kitchen window a very angry woman, wearing bright yellow wellies marching towards the Vicarage door. We have a door bell but she opted to bang on the door.

I wasn’t eavesdropping. I just happened to be preparing breakfast in the kitchen when this happened.

She went on a rant demanding the Mhinisteir do something about her unhappiness there and then.

She is unhappy that the churchyard is getting in the way of her garden. Seriously???? Did she not consider that when she bought the house all that yonks ago????

What a start to our Monday morning!

This isn’t the first time something like this has happened. A few years back, a newcomer to the village complained about the church bells. The matter even went to court after this individual displayed threatening behaviour. Why buy a house right next to the parish church if you want peace and quiet????
