" ... well she's no better than she ought to be."

By Karuma1970
That expression has always made me laugh. It might not even be known outside of Lancashire and Yorkshire and if you analyse it, it makes no logical sense but I think we all know what is implied. It conveys disapproval of behaviour without the need for actual facts. My West Indian mother-in-law would have referred to 'slackness'.
It's worth mentioning that my lip reading in Vietnamese is second to none.

A good reminder that people are basically the same no matter where they are. This could be three older ladies gossiping just about anywhere in the world.

She knows who her most compassionate friend is. So she's telling her while the other one tries to ignore. Great timing capturing this.
