I also have another friend who teaches college students and admitted he tells my stories to them to make them feel like IT COULD BE WORSE in their own lives.... And I sometimes exclaim things like "oh my gosh I LOVE you! Which, has never really felt awkward until I was in a new relationship several years ago. And he and I both knew we both had commitment issues so we were treading lightly around too much talk of feelings. ...waaahhh" His face registered shock and amusement and we ended up laughing about it and I thought I had convinced him that I did So I thought it was fine....until the next day when he asked me to make sure the vacuum even worked because he "blacked out after the L bomb" and couldn't even remember if he finished putting it together.
On weekends, people usually want to get out of the somewhat claustrophobic city that they spend all week in.The taxi driver was an American black guy, probably in his late 30’s. Cab driver: “Man, my girl was a BITCH last night” (he emphasized the word “bitch” in the way only a black man can). ”, I said meekly, really not wanting to hear about it, but it seemed he had a lot to get off his chest. You know bitches get all bitchy when you don’t give it to them, right?! ” He went on like this for the remaining 10 minutes of the cab ride. I made it safely home and I figured I should be satisfied with that, even if I did have to suffer through the rantings of an insensitive cab driver. I began to tell my friends the story (in casual company) and expected to end up in deep debates about the state of gender relations in our society.I was pretty tired and sunk down in the back seat, but not 30 seconds into the ride, he started talking to me. Instead, I was shocked by the response of my female friends: every one laughed and said, “Yeah, that’s true.” What?! Where were the calls for mandatory sensitivity training starting in 6th grade? In high school I had been one of those guys who thought girls didn’t enjoy sex.Do you ever feel like people appear in our lives as messengers to teach us fundamental lessons of life?We may not recognize the value of their wisdom at the time, but later we look back and realize they were sending us a message we needed to hear. Therefore, my first thought upon hearing this dude complain about his woman acting bitchy because he had not “given it to her” was to think, “This brother needs some sensitivity training.” In fact, I even debated whether I should let him know he should be more sensitive to women.
I promised you all that I would occasionally interrupt my running posts to give you some stories about the rest of my life, so below is a post I wrote a few years ago about how dating life can go in D. The ridiculous things that have happened to me in dating have become infamous among my friends.
