A Sussex woman who constantly displayed an attitude of arrogance, and who was described as having "a bee in her bonnet", has received her comeuppance, and been brought back down to earth with a severe bump.
The woman, Violet Brash, from Brighton, was always telling people 'how it should be', and 'what she would do if she were in their shoes', but of course, she wasn't, and that was part of the problem.
The other part of the problem, was that her nose was just too big, and her interfering nature , in the end, just got the better of her, according to her neighbour.
Ethel Grimley, 136, said:
"Oooooh, she was just too big for her boots. Always tellin' us what to do, what to say, where to go shopping, all that kind o' thing! She was a bloody nuisance, and a right bighead!"
Other people told us how Mrs Brash was also just too big for her boots, and always had a chip on her shoulder.
Alice Arbuckle, 89, said:
"She stunk of chips. Always had one on her shoulder. Too clever by half, that one."
Brash received her comeuppance when she was involved in a hit-and-run accident with a milkfloat on Friday as she crossed the street in front of her house.
Her husband, Virgil, told police she had gone to tell some young boys that they were playing football in an area where it had been forbidden by the Council. Said Virgil:
"She was a stroppy old bitch. Far too cocky. That'll teach her not to go poking her nose in everyone else's business!"
