modern morals; An alternative look at 21st Century life.

GRRRRRRR! I'm heartbroken and angry. Really angry.

My gorgeous missus, Sian, has dumped me. I thought she was the one, but she's left me for her ex.

I say she's left me for her ex. I'm convinced she's left me for her ex.

She denies it and I've no evidence she's left me for her ex. But she has.

She's a liar, liar, pants on fire.

I'm a clear thinking man and it's at times like this my mind is most lucid.

I'm on my 10th pint of the morning, by the way. Anyway. I know that cow is seeing that swine.

I wanna knock him out. That goes without saying. I wanted to do that even before she fell back into his slimy arms.

I'm gonna knock him out. But before I do that I must confront Sian.

I think the best place to do this is somewhere public, like her place of work.

She's a primary school teacher. I think striding into her classroom would have the desired effect.

Should I do it? Or should I follow her for days at a time, saying nothing but making gestures across the neck withmy forefinger?

REESE, 40, Haverfordwest

Er, I must take issue with you on the point you make about having a clear mind.

For one, I have, like most people, experienced heartbreak at one time or another. But then, as a bloke who once impressed me on a Newport bus once said: "It is better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all."

Actually I wasn't impressed. I thought he was an idiot and told him to get lost.

Nevertheless, a few points: One, straight after a break-up isn't the best time for important decisions.

Two, you've been drinking.

And three, swine don't have arms, slimy or otherwise.

Filthy trotters, perhaps, but slimy arms? Not the case, I assure you.

But to the case in point.

Should you confront her in the classroom? No. Should you stalk her with accompanying gestures? No.

Just ignore her. One day she'll call and you'll have moved on.
