it's raining men...and may they seep into the dark dark monsoon drains

Boyfriends can be such insensitive jerks sometimes. Like for example, my puppy of 3 months just died a terrible death and I called him to let him know my sad feelings. Naturally, you respond by being sympathetic and say soothing words like this:


Me: My puppy just died. I ran over him, I feel so guilty I’m literally crying my heart out.


Him: Oh no, that’s terrible. What happened?


Me: It was too dark and it was hard to spot him. Usually he will wait at the garage, but that time he followed the other dogs to the main gate. I drove really slow and honked a few times, but I guess he was frightened and accidentally went under the car.


Him: Poor puppy, you must be really sad. I’m so sorry about that, is there anything I can do to help? You want me to come over and talk about it?


And instead, this is what he actually said:


Me: My puppy just died. I ran over him, I feel so guilty I’m literally crying my heart out.


Him: What happened?


Me: It was too dark and it was hard to spot him. Usually he will wait at the garage, but that time he followed the other dogs to the main gate. I drove really slow and honked a few times, but I guess he was frightened and accidentally went under the car.


Him: Babe, these things happen. You can’t do anything about it now.


Me: He’s still a little pup! He’s a special breed!


Him: Yeah well, my pup got ran over too last time, and it was special. But past is the past, babe. (chuckles)


Me: You meanie! You’re not taking this seriously, are you?


Him: Of course I am. But look, what can you do? Hey, I got an incoming call now. Text you later k?


Me: Yeah, yeah ok (grumbles)


And that night he never text me back. At least send a few words of “Don’t worry too much, babe. It’ll be fine”. Stupid man. An animal may not be human, but it still has a life, it still breathes the same air as we do, and they are definitely a man’s best friend...hello!


Gawd I’m so pissed at him, all he care right now is his career, his friends, his nighlife, his beer, and his obsession with football. I may not be his priority, but he should at least act the way it’s supposed to be during certain situations, like this for instance.


Men! Boyfriends…blech!


ps - sorry guys, i'm not talking about you..just referring to this mister of mine
