I Got A Story to Tell.. Part 2
Please read part 1 of this story.. It isn’t hard, I just posted it yesterday…
When we left off, me and chick had reached an understanding about why I didn’t fill her car back after she offered to let me drive it.
When she initially sent the text about the gas, she made sure to mention that she wasn’t trying to be rude. The problem I have with that is that while it’s hard to decipher tone through text; we also know that everyone is more bold through writing. So we know that while she could’ve told me that she wasn’t meaning to be rude, I don’t believe her, she needs more people. The only pardon I will give her is that at least she had an issue with me and brought it up the same day, instead of slandering my name or complaining about me to her chick friends. I can appreciate that and I told her so.
I thought we were done. I thought it was over. Fast forward 1 1/2 hours
My text goes off again.
“So you didn’t sleep on the bed because I didn’t make it? Do I have to leave bedsheets and towels out for you?
OOOHHHH WEEEE!!! e________O
I literally looked at the phone and it took everything out of me to not ask her “WTF is wrong with you?”
I kindly wrote back, “come on, I know how to make up a bed. No, you don’t have to leave anything out for me. You’re not making any sense.”
I then went on and told her that I didn’t stay there that weekend. She doesn’t need to know everything that led me to that decision. She texts me, “Oh, I didn’t know that you weren’t going to be staying with them.”
*sigh*…. just, mutha effin sigh…
My points are as such,
1. Whether or not I stayed there that weekend, I would STILL have walked the dogs twice a day in the same way I did when I stayed home. I’m wondering if she thought that I would’ve been out there with them at all hours.
2. I’m thinking this broad would’ve been pleased that her dogs still got taken care of and I wasn’t all up in her space, eating her Rice Krispie Treats. Cuz trust me, I was about to dog them OUT!
3. Whether or not I was there, I still don’t let dogs sleep in the bed with me, so that wasn’t gonna change. I’m wondering if she thought that was a constant.
4. Everytime that I’ve watched her dogs, I’ve stayed at her house (and invited people over) the one time I don’t, it’s a problem? GTFOH
5. She told me that her “time” was coming, so I’m thinking she was extra froggy, but you can’t be froggy with someone whose attack word could be as simple as “hello.”
I often want to ask this girl, “how often are you going to stick your foot in your mouth before you get sick of the taste.” Considering that I haven’t expelled the energy in telling this girl about herself before, I couldn’t go all “Thrilla in Manilla” on her now, and ESPECIALLY not by text. (which to me, is the weakest form of communication) Am I reallyseeing an issue that this girl had by my not staying with her yappy dogs?
Maybe the fact that I haven’t fully told this girl about herself is why she thought that I was the one that the duppy could frighten. Maybe that’s why she thought that she could say whatever the hell she wanted to me. I’d like to think that I’m becoming a better person, but the Jesus in me isn’t fully formed yet. Yes, it is probably pride, but I doubt I’ll ever be looking after these dogs again. I want her to try and find someone that would’ve done that gig for what she wanted to pay. AND am I looking a little tooo hard at the matter that if you have to pay me less than $100 in installments AND tell me that you’re gonna be light on money til payday, then you shouldn’t be going on a cruise. Cuz BISH, you couldn’t afford it! But I’m not in a position to tell her what to do with her money UNTIL IT AFFECTS ME! This affected me.
My mother is looking at me like, “Nick, don’t totally cut off everyone when you start working. You might need a gig (or whatever).” MY thing is, “if I’m working, I’ll be making more in a day than what I would’ve been making the whole weekend.” Something bout that don’t rock right. This isn’t even pride, this is just a matter of knowing what I’m worth. I can compromise now, but not later.
Honestly, I did consider putting something back in her gas tank HAD I gotten paid in full. I also might’ve considered it if me and her didn’t have communication issues. She needed to learn a lesson. And I’m that teacher.
This wraps up the story. This is what happens when hoes don’t get checked initially. So my lesson to you all. Check yo hoes! I don’t let much slide, and now you know why. You give them a millimeter, they take an inch.. and yes, I realize that those two systems are different. I KNOW THAT!
Catch you tomorrow for Nostalgic Fridays..
Peace and Love, Nick
P.S. I spoke to my friend and she verified that if she offered me her car, she wouldn’t expect me to fill back the tank. Although, since she doesn’t have communication issues, I would.
