A Newry man has pretended to speak on his phone to avoid talking to someone he knew who was coming the other way it has been revealed today.
Eammon Smyth was walking to work this morning when he spotted an old friend, Damien McGinn, coming towards him.
McGinn told Newry Spud:
“I was about to say hello when his phone apparently rang and he picked up. There was no ringtone and the arsehole pretended that he was on the phone until well after I’d walked past him.
I know he wasn’t really on the phone because he had it upside down for starters. It was a real shame because I wanted to ask him why he’s such an dickhead – the last time he saw me, he jumped on a bus.”
Smyth was unavailable for comment but his neighbour said that was a proper dick face.
