“We don’t all need to turn into Gladys Kravitz”

You gotta love it when a State Premier draws upon Bewitched in these times of COVID.

South Australian Premier Steven Marshall drew upon Bewitched during a radio interview yesterday, when he agreed members of the public did not all need to start dobbing in people who are not wearing masks.

“We don’t all need to turn into Gladys Kravitz,” he said on ABC Radio.

“I had to explain that to people under the age of 40 in the office yesterday.

“All the young ones looked at me like, ‘Are you crazy? Who’s Gladys Kravitz?’

“We don’t need to be the monitor for everybody’s behaviour here in SA. We’ve got to look after ourselves and our family, our local community.”

In case you’d forgotten, Gladys Kravitz was the nosy neighbour in Bewitched, played initially by Alice Pearce and later Sandra Gould.

She often witnessed incidents of witchcraft by Sam (Elizabeth Montgomery), but could just never convince her husband Abner.

Maybe the Premier should have gone for Patty & Selma, Mrs. Mangel or even Lady Whistledown to get very contemporary.

But I secretly love he went for Gladys Kravitz.
