A local man has taken a quick peek at his phone before giving his wife a fair ribbing.

“Yeah, unbelievable mate, she… hang on a tick buddy,” said 39-year-old Russel Blackwood.

Blackwood pulled out his phone to make sure he wasn’t currently connected on a call with his wife of 7 years.

“Better just make sure I’m not still on with the missus,” said Blackwood.

Once the coast was clear, Blackwood commenced giving shit to his wife.

Blackwood feels he is a much wiser man after learning from his previous mistake of paying out a mate during a drunken moment in a cab while still connected to that same mate by phone call.

Blackwood’s wife is extra careful with her phone, turning it off whenever she is involved in any extramarital flings.
