You Want The Truth? You Can’t Handle The Truth

I’ve learned a long time ago to never ask a question I don’t want to know the answer to. Questions like, “How old do I look?” “Do I look fat in this shirt?” You know, stuff like that. I supposed not everyone has learned this valuable lesson.

Hence my conversation with Mr. Eager. He was on one of his marathon single sided conversations the other day when he asked me, “Do you miss me?” I kind of looked blankly for a minute. I was stunned actually. He was on the phone so he couldn’t see my initial reaction. Here is one of those questions you don’t really want to hear the honest answer too. You want to hear “yes” regardless if it’s the truth or not. Well I didn’t feel like lying on this particular day so I just said, “Hmmmm….not really.” Oh hell, what did I say that for? He launched into this 40 minute tirade about how I was insensitive and I didn’t really like him as much as he liked me and such. I just simply listened and said, “Well I guess I don’t.” He hung up on me.

He called back about 8 minutes later and asked me, “Do you even care about me?” I said, “You’re alright.” He hung up again.

Well, he did finally stop talking long enough to ask.

I know i shouldn't laugh but what the hell LSGHAO. I applaud you for keeping it real. I think it was for the best though because clearly any other response would have allowed him to keep his delusions of your interest in him going. Sorry to say it he may keep them going any way.

Oh. That is rough. LOL. I love it.

Nonya Bidness said...

Hilarious! I, too, applaud you for your honesty. Probably better in the long run than stringing him along.

Jeni said...

I laughed when I read your last response to him and my thought then was "Ya know, Diva, you're all right!"
Good on you for doing that though. Think of all the insecurities you'd have to be nursing all the time with him.

“You’re alright.”

You are my hero.

Tanyetta said...

hilarious! dude is insecure as all get out.

do you miss me?

wtf!

LoudPen said...

Girl, you were absolutely right to tell him the truth. The thing about the truth is people find the truth mean, but, to me it's just what's real.

I mean I was talking to a co-worker of mine a few months ago about whether or not you should always tell the truth and he was like, "you should but, ppl. can't always handle it" and I was like, "Yea, that's true, but, if they can't handle the truth then I'm not dealing with them. Period."

What kind of grown ass person can't handle somebody telling them the truth?! Everything ain't always birds, flowers, and trees. "There's heaven and there's hell. One minute you cruisin' in the six and the next, bullshit catchin' up and alibis ain't matching up." -Jay-Z

Terri said...

Nelia said...

I'm with Queen-Size. Why did this man call back? He's lucky you gave him an "alright."

Hit 40 said...

You were very kind to be honest with the delusional man. I know we try to be nice to them...

but they really just want sex. Even guys at work that I am nice too - always ask me if I want to maybe cheat on my husband. NICE!!! I thought we were just being good colleagues!!

SingleLADY said...

Girl... I like your style. Honestly is always the best policy!

Kelley @ magnetoboldtoo said...

Dora said...

What a moron....is he retarded? Who says stuff like that? Hopefully you're done with this one?!?!?!

Liam said...

I have made a career out of telling people what they want to hear. I find it hard to tell them the truth when I know it will disappoint them.
