So, trying to be the blase Girlfriend I’m not- I told my SO that it was no big deal for him to spend 5 days in Rochester with his family….
I was fine until my kitchen sink clogged, (during Christmas, there are no plumbers….. and it was clogged with shrimp shells…for 2 days and counting,) the car started showing ‘check engine’ light of imminent death, and an electric bill that was going through the roof reared it’s ugly head, (I called the SO about it, and he did the audio-version of a shrug on the phone, I could have wrung his neck,) not to mention, (and I hate to use it as an excuse but, it DOES make things worse…) I’m a needy, stressed and anxious PMS Monster right now. After out 3rd over-the-phone fight, (we never fight….) I was trying to tell SO my feelings, (clingy, needy..) and he didn’t get the clue while playing monopoly with his family. After tossing and turning, I sent him a text:
You’re being such an *sshole, I can’t believe you can’t take 5 minutes from monopoly to talk to your girlfriend.
It’s a bad-enough message- I mean, I dropped the a-bomb….. what’s worse? I sent it to a CO-WORKER. My new fan-dangled touchscreen phone, I typed in the wrong recipient.
Anydoodles. Merry Christmas.
PS: This Christmas was significantly better because this year, my roof didn’t cave in! LOL.
AND: Has anyone realized how much they rely on their SO when they’re gone. OMG.
