The Fight

Boyfriend: "You want to talk about it?"

Me: (looks the other way, eyes well up with tears) "No. I've talked about it all day. I'm tired of even thinking about it."

Boyfriend (sighs): "You're upset."

Me: (scoffing) "I am not! God! I don't even care!"

Boyfriend: "Ok....well I've got some stuff to do so I-"

Me: (angrily) "It's just that I try, and I try, and I try, and I put SO much effort in. And I get nothing in return. I mean, it's not even worth it anymore!"

Boyfriend: "This is just how these things work...sometimes it just happens this way and you have to keep moving and hope for the best. Haven't you heard of the book/movie He's Just Not That Into You?"

Me: (jaw drops open) "Excuse me?? Not into me?! Now you're just being ridiculous!"

Boyfriend: (heatedly) "Seriously, sometimes you miss all the signs or it's just not a good fit. This is one of those cases! Get over it and move on!"

Me: (storming out the door)"Fine! If that's the way it's going to go down then so be it! I'm DONE. Through. FINITO. I'm better than this! Let's see how things works without me. HA!" (door slams)

Boyfriend: (muttering) "Sheesh. Not sure she would handle continuing unemployment that well if this is the reaction to being turned down from a job..."

  1. Oh no!!! I am so sorry!!! This sounds like a horrible fight and I really hope that you are okay. Please keep us updated.

  2. I am sorry that you didn't get the job (must do drinks soon) but the end of the post made me laugh.

    PS: Work sucks...

  3. okay, I'm here with a martini. That should make you feel perhaps a little better.

  4. Good Gals: It was indeed a horrible fight...between me and the job loss...not me and my boyfriend ;-)

    Chelsea C.: Good! That was the point! Laugh it off, right?

    Vodka Mom: You know, I've never actually had a martini...I kind of want to try one.

  5. Love. It. This is the first time I have been on your page, and I already have it in the ol' Google reader.
