When I first moved to Saffron Walden, I spent a lot of time with one of the guys from work. We live nearish and both didn’t really know people in the area and got along. Things were going well until he told me he wanted to be more than friends. I said no and around that time he started getting more and more negative. Seeming to find fault with many aspects of my personality. I’d like to think the timing was just coincidental, but perhaps not.
I’ve had enough negativity in my life to last theee lifetimes, so my response to this sort of thing is to spend less time with said person. And I was getting to know more people in the area so I wouldn’t have been spending as much time with him anyway, but I reduced it even more. And more as the negativity continued. Until one day when I bit back. Of course, there are people out there that can never admit to anything and it is of course, all in your head. But they’ll continue with it even after you call them on it.
I last called him on his shit on Sat when he pissed me off with some text messages. He did his usual acknowledge he’d been in the wrong (well, that was unusual actually, because he’d never gotten to that bit before), close the issue, then ten minutes later send me a text saying actually it was all in my head. My response was to tell him this was getting old and he then sent a text message that we would need to continue this conversation in person as text messages were just escallating it. Well, if he hadn’t wanted to escalate it, he shouldn’t have started in again once it was all settled.
So I did what any sane gal would do: ignore the idiot.
Now here’s where the title of my blog post comes in. All of a sudden this week, I’ve been getting emails from him in the afternoon telling me what he’s doing that night. Today I got told all his plans for tonight and this weekend. Am I a diary? Maybe he thinks if he forgets what he has to do he can call me up and I’ll remind him. I can’t think of any reason why I’d be getting this sort of play by play. This is definitely new. And very odd.
What do you think? And anything odd happened in your week?
