A Rochdale woman was surprised to learn that everything was fine despite being told by her husband “it’ll be fine” 400 times a day for almost 15 years.

The most recent incidence of everything working out pretty much okay despite several huge arguments, usually preceded by somebody saying “don’t worry about it, it’ll be fine”, occurred over the bank holiday weekend when her husband was “left in charge” of some travel arrangements.

Upon discovering that Steve “it’ll be fine” Dickinson had made no detailed itinerary for a 45 mile journey to a friend’s new house Barbara had to be sedated.

Once Barbara was sedated Steve was able to set off in the general direction of his friend’s new house, give him a call en route to find out where the house was and arrived without incident.

Barbara seemed disappointed to discover that everything was in fact fine.

Divorce proceedings are underway.
