To Give Someone a Dirty Look




"To Give Someone a Dirty Look"

Example: Mary,

How was your weekend? I hope you are feeling better.
I have to tell you what happened at the party last night!
Everyone was there on time. Susan called and said she was running a little late, so we all waited for her to arrive to start having dinner.
She arrived 2 hours later...We were all very mad and of course, starving!
Everyone gave her a dirty look when she walked in... That was so inconsiderate!
She apologized and started eating before everyone else! Unbelievable!
Anyway, we had a good time... Susan will not be invited to any parties anytime soon.

Call me when you have a chance! Feel better!

Gloria.
