I would like to add that, in my case, that's not true - it just takes a lot longer than normal!

One of my mother's sayings was "there's always a fly in the ointment" - some irritation that had to be dealt with. Sadly it applied to her on many occasions!

I'm sure we can all think of someone to whom this applies!

The full version of "Hell hath no fury as a woman scorned" is "Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned nor hell a fury like a woman scorned".

The first bit is very true as well as I know from bitter experience.

The writer is not Shakespeare as most people think but William Congreve - who?!
