Another Prime Example of Un-boyfriend’s Uselessness

30 Aug

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Un-boyfriend is useless.  Several months ago, I had a minor emotional outburst and posted about Mr. Big X returning to the area from Chicago.  Un-boyfriend and I had been broken up for a few months before I started dating Mr. Big X.  They knew each other, and were civil to one another.

As it turns out, he happens to be working in the same building as Un-boyfriend.  How about that for a coincidence??  When I found out that they would be working in the same building, I was sure that Un-boyfriend would provide me with some scoop about Mr. Big X.  He would regale me with stories about how Mr. Big X had a receding hairline, an extra chin, and a pot belly.  I was looking forward to hearing all about it.

They had their first run in about 2 months ago.  Un-boyfriend saw Mr. Big X from across the gym.  They did not speak to one another, and he could not provide me with a physical description of how Mr. Big X had lost his once hot looks.  Nothing.  Not. One. Damned. Thing.  Since then, I hear that they ride in the elevator together and they pretend not to know one another.

Until today.  Below is the email exchange highlighting the interaction between Un-boyfriend and Mr. Big X:

  • UB: I just talked to your boy for the first time.
  • CS: How’d that go for you?
  • UB: Super. He said, “Hey Un-boyfriend, how are you?” I said, “Good Mr. Big X, how are you doing?” To which he replied, “Good.”

He clearly missed the memo where he’s supposed to get me all the dirt on Mr. Big X so that I can revel in the fact that his life went to shit after he dumped me on New Year’s.  That’s right, on New Year’s.  Nice guy.

    I mean, after all, if they are dumb enough to let you leave their lives, they SHOULD start batting for the other team. I’m not sayin’…I’m just sayin’… hee..hee..hee… 🙂

    Does un-boyfriend read your blog?, just curious…

    They should have a cage match fight.

    All men are useless. And helpless. Un-Boyfriend is just a really good example.

    Not all men are useless and helpless, there are some good ones out, it’s just a matter of finding them!

    Cinnkitty: You know, you just might be right. He hasn’t exactly been picking stellar relationship partners. Maybe he is hoping to get it on with Mr. Big X. I’m sure that they might be very happy together. Perhaps I can give a toast at their civil ceremony.

    Rambler: Hells to the no! He doesn’t know it exists.

    The Idea of Progress: Mr. Big X would make Un-boyfriend cry like a baby. Just like he did to me.

    Beatrix Kiddo: They’re not all useless. Some of them are very good at mowing lawns, taking out the garbage, shoveling walk ways, making me suffer, making me moan, etc.

    Jen: Agreed. Just don’t know where they’re hiding or why they’re not interested in me.

    So nefarious! Does any dude really care that much? I’ve had a few awkward nods with other exes, and been pissed when the revelations of hookups with male “friends” came out (mostly because of the lying), but unless there was a really awesome reward, I don’t play detective for nobody.

    Well clearly some men are just useless. Surely he’s aware that it’s a god set mission to dish the dirt??

    New Years?!? Ugh. What a creep. He should have his fingernails ripped off.

    New Year’s Eve. Ouch. I’ve spent many of those alone, but getting dumped, WOW does that suck.

    Men can be pretty useless at times. Still in all, I love men (albeit not very many of them). I’ve had a number of long-term, serious, platonic relationships, and I love the variety and perspective they provide. (These days, thankfully, I’m also revelling in the world of the non-platonic.) Sometimes I think it comes from having brothers, or the fact that my first friend ever was a boy, but still, what _would_ we do without them? Then there’s the fact that yes, they make you suffer, but they also make you moan…

    I do love me a man. He certainly didn’t put me off from relationships, except or a little while. Still, I don’t exactly have much love for him as he’s a dick. -CS
