I don't appreciate the attempts of others to manipulate me. Especially from someone who isn't even smart enough to do it in a subtle manner. It insults my intelligence and just plain pisses me the hell off.
I had the misfortune of being confronted with my past yesterday. When I saw the name on my phone I almost didn't answer it but I figured ... what the hell? Apparently, this person just read my novel for the first time and wanted to call and congratulate me and tell me how much they enjoyed it ... blah blah blah. This person begins to tell me about specific parts of the book and tells me which section was his favorite. I was cordial. I thanked him and was ready to get off the phone. He tried to drag out the conversation but I was so not interested. Thank you for the compliment but we really have nothing to say to each other.
Why the hell did this ignorant fool send me a text at 2:00 a.m. talking about he was so impressed and he couldn't stop thinking about me and now he's looking at me through different eyes? I deleted that boosheet and went back to sleep but when I woke up I was irritated for having my sleep interrupted.
First of all, if you are texting me at 2:00 a.m. you are not looking at me through different eyes. You are looking at me through the same disrespectful eyes that you have always looked at me through.
Secondly, did you honestly believe that a little bit of flattery was going to make me forget all that has gone down?
And third, take off the rose-colored glasses ... I'm still the same evil b*tch that left you eight years ago.
Stay the hell off my phone.
