I think many punters are disillusioned , lonely , needy , who knows . All i can say that is that i once had a very much disillusioned regular way back in 2008 .
Basically , this guy used to see me every week . We got on well and after a while he told me how unhappy he was at home
I asked him the ins and outs and the whys and wherefores etc. I told him i was twice divorced and this that and the other.
This conversation took up from where it left off every time he came to see me for quite a while .
Sadly though , this guy thought , in his own head (obviously ) that he was something that little bit special to me and i saved all my advice and charm and loveliness just for him and his weekly visits and he obviously thought that he was so much more than a punter , he thought that i would be his way out of his unhappy relationship and that if he were to leave his live in partner that we could become an item.
I had never seen this guy apart from the place i worked at . We had never been for a drink , meal , pictures NADA !
This guy , one Saturday , decided to tell his fiance that he had met someone and was leaving her.
That someone was me !
The woman was devastated , after 14 years of being with this bloke , and tried to take her own life .
She was on life support and ended up on kidney dialysis due to the amount of tablets taken and in hospital for quite a few weeks as i recall .
I have always regretted bein so nice to him but at the end of the day i have been nice to a lot of blokes and they havent left their partner .
This tale is a sad reminder of how things can go sadly awry in this industry . I wish he had not left her because i couldnt offer him anything and i think he was so fed up with his `lot` that he saw me as some kind of escape .
