I was having a conversation with someone about my attempt to get money from my ex husband.
I said 'It might be easier this time as his previous accountant was bent, the one he has now isn't'
Them 'You can't say bent,'
Me 'Why not, I'm not making an accusation in court and I'm telling the truth'
Them 'Is his new accountant straight?'
Me, puzzled 'No, he's gay, but what's that got to do with anything'
'But you said his previous accountant was bent!'
Me 'Yes he was'
Me, with the light finally dawning 'His previous accountant was crooked financially but straight sexually, his current accountant is straight financially but gay sexually'
Ye gods, that got complicated, I wouldn't refer to someone who was gay as being bent, I would feel that was inappropriate, to me, bent means legally crooked.
