39: banditry

Fact. Fail. Bandit.

The three most overused words in my vocabulary of late.

Bandit is on the ascendency largely because lately I feel I’ve been a victim of banditry on all sides. A bandit is anyone who messes you around unnecessarily, stealing your time, energy and motivation. So for example, all boys are bandits – rogues of the highest order who, if they can tell you sugar-coated lies and believe you’ve swallowed them, run amok, having their cake and eating it. Bandits.

It’s hard to define the word but Charlotte Hatherley sings a song that kind of sums up the kind of behaviour necessary to gain you the title ‘bandit’ (although she calls it something else…).
