This is getting old

15 Feb

He’s bombing me with e-mail tonight, pleading confusion that I don’t want to talk to him. In the middle of a reply, a new note comes in. It’s all bullshit, but I thought I would share this one with you all. From him, title “An Insight:”

Jeez, how could I miss this. Back when you went to jury duty and came home telling me of the drug bust girl, I quit smoking and haven’t since. When you left, I also quit drinking. But last night I had two drinks. I’m not making some lame excuse. This could be a source of our problems and I need to quit drinking.

And my reply:

You don’t need to quit drinking, you need to quit being a dick. Alcohol does not change who you are, it just lessens your inhibitions – what you think actually makes it out of your mouth. You are capable and willing to slice me in half sober or drunk, that’s the Real Problem.

That shut him up. He’s telling a lie – I buy the booze and he did not quit drinking. Most of our “disagreements” happen while he’s sober anyway – alcohol makes him more mellow. Self aware, much? Asshole.

    I hope you keep calling him out!
    (Until he stops calling.)
    (And be careful.)

      Careful is my middle name. It feels good to tell it like it is after so many years of keeping my mouth shut. Mom is proud that I’m finally being the daughter she raised me to be 🙂

    maybe you should ignore him for the rest of night. That will teach him 😉 but I second the motion that you be careful.

      I am doing just that – he’s already sent three more notes, but I told him I would be logging off at 2100 and I will stick to my guns. My very careful guns 🙂

    GOOD FOR YOU! He sounds lame. I’m glad you’re not falling for that anymore… although, I’m sure there must still be parts that are painful…

    It’s hard not to respond to them after a while, isn’t it?

    OOhhh, great reply! I’m with Jenny, though. I know it’s hard to keep from responding, especially when you catch him in a lie, and when you are oh sooo pissed! He’s trying to get you to respond. The more you do, the more he feels elated that he got you to do it ‘again’. Hang in there!! You are doing wonderfully 🙂 Great to see you out and about.
