The Voice

by Anne Deborah Taylor
Originally published by on 23/01/2018

Her voice was irritating beyond belief, irritating and patronising.

“Doesn’t her voice get on your nerves?' Mavis asked Marvin, her husband.

“Well, yes it does, but we do have to listen to her.'

“I don’t see why we should,' said Mavis.

“And I don’t know how you can say that,' said Marvin. “She’s got us out of many a tricky situation.'

“Really?' said Mavis. “I’d say she’s got us into far more difficulty than out of it. And if I hear her say ‘Make a U-turn when convenient’ one more time, that satnav is going out the bloody window!'
