      What is your latest mistake?

      Mine is I gave my new number to old man at my work.

      Last day of actual work I went and got new phone which came with new number. I got myself fired and afterward any of my pals that previously contacted me (3) were no longer able to text or call. I would have liked to say bye to them but I *really* did not want girl I worked with to have new number

      So couple weeks passed and I texted old lady at work as I had dream about her and I knew she wouldn’t pass around number and just wanted to say hello. Come to find out her cousin died couple days previous after she lost her sister couple weeks prior, black people always dying

      Anyhow the only other person I really liked was “Don” old guy, maybe late 60s, he was my buddy. I told old lady to give number to old guy Don

      He called me about a week later. I talked with him to get the scoop on what was going on up there. Nice conversation but he proceeds to tell me he quit. I also found out I made $3 more an hour than him and he worked so much harder than me and worked there for 12 years! 🙁

      I like him but now he is kinda calling me all the time. He never leaves message so it’s just weird to see missed calls. I wouldn’t mind texting a hello but what in the world am I going to talk to him about? He doesnt work there anymore. Now I feel like jerk cause I am not calling him back. I shouldn’t have gave him my number as my motive was impure. I really just wanted to gossip. I mean I wanted to say hi/bye but I did call him for dirt
      🙁

        Dr. Nemes Butterfeild will get back to ya in a couple days time as he (Has Nothing), or Fuck-All For Ya right now but gossip himself. Bwa, ha, ha! (Joke Nemes) and Honestly. 😉

        Desp,,, But I Dr. Dre has something for you my darling Best-Gore Sister.
        And that is that i would not feel bad for the old chap, as i’m sure that if you did lead him on it was 100% inadvertently.

        So maybe you should have a heart to heart with him, spill The Bean (sort of speak) and just tell him the truth. Cause Then ‘You Will’ feel so much better after the call is made, and all will be cleared-up including your phones missed calls notices. The truth can sometimes be very awkward to deliver,, but in the end it is always the best way.

        I Hope that my unsolicited advice was of help to you, as you have always been there with sound advice for myself when in need, Cheers, and good luck. 🙂

          I did not lead him on whatsover. We were just friendly. We bitched to one another about work as we knew the other wouldn’t run their mouth

          Only reason I had his number is because one day I couldn’t get fan to shut off to set alarm, my boss didnt know either so she gave me his number

      Sounds like you led him on a little.

      Most people don’t like dating co-workers for obvious reasons but you ceased to be that. What’s more, you asked a friend to pass on your number to him. Old Don’s heart would have skipped a beat on that one and he would have set off to buy some viagra.

      Also, considering that he quit the company soon after you left tells me that perhaps you were the only thing keeping him there.

      Sorry Despy, you cock-teased a silver surfer. If you want him to stop calling you’ll have to pretend that you have a boyfriend or something in your next call. Just drop it in during a discussion about the weekend coming or something. It will destroy his plans of docking in your port and sink his battle ship.

      As for my latest mistake, its a bit similar to yours to be honest. I used to have a co-worker who I got on with very well, I really liked this girl but I wasn’t sure if she shared the same feelings. Anyway. She got fired and I left soon afterwards and that was that I thought until recently when I was given her number by another friend who said that she wanted to keep in contact with me.

      Well, as you might imagine my heart skipped a beat and off I set to buy some…..wine. I naturally left it a week before calling so as not to come across as being too desperate however I think I may have made the mistake of calling too much and too often as she is not returning my calls anymore. I expect she will pull out the old “boyfriend” trick if we ever speak again. Ah, fuck my life.

          “Don” instantly came off as horndog and had horrible way of invading one’s space. He definitely showed an interest and that is why by 2nd or 3rd conversation I told him I had a boyfriend. He never hit on me again . He did ask me if I wanted to get lunch couple times after that but I always said no.

          I will say hi to him again sometime it was just irritating as he called 3x in less than a week. He has since stopped.

          As to your issue. Sounds like it is Her mistake @lord

          “Horndon”

          Poor old Don…rejected once again. It’s an age-old story; dude didn’t get any signals that suggested you wanted to get boned, but he goes there anyway. I think most horndogs figure it doesn’t hurt to try, what’s the worse that can happen? Horndogs are gross. 😀

          @desp

          I feel for you Despy. Horndogs are gross as fuck and this “Don” character sounds like a real asshole.

          In my example though I was definitely getting mixed messages from “Denise” despite constantly chatting me up as she would now and again bring her “boyfriend” into the equation and conversation much like how Lieutenant Columbo would often bring “Mrs Columbo” into the conversation despite us never actually seeing heads or tails of her and therein casting her entire existence into doubt thus creating the argument that she existed merely as a argumentum ad verecundiam/argumentum ab auctoritate for Lieutenant Columbo himself.

          I did ask her to lunch a few times afterwards though but was once again given mixed messages much to my utter chagrin.

          Anyhow. Despite her actually seeking me out and providing her number to me I still don’t know where I stand with this girl. Ah, fuck my life.

          Sorry I meant to sign @empty . I must have had wankdust on brain 🙂

          Anyhow that is just the thing. He is not asshole. I know he is horny old man and good for him and he did cut out the flirting so he is not asshole, that is why I care

          That’s understandable. Wankdust is a highlander after all and at the end of the day there can be only one.

          As for “Don”, I am sorry for calling him an asshole. I don’t know why but I feel a strange affinity for and connection to him.

        • #354254

          Could she have been using the boyfriend to keep you a little jealous and thus keen?
          I’d like to hear the ladies’ opinion on this as well if they wouldn’t mind.


          @desp


          @illegalsmile55

          Does that sound plausible at all in @empty-soul s case?

          No. I see zero benefit in telling boy you have a boyfriend. It is strictly for stomping out future advances.

          Thanks @desp . Well that fucks my argument…

          Could happen. Girl could try to pit the suitors against one another in effort to get stuff. “Jimmy bought me these earrings.. but I really had heart set on matching necklace..”

          Then BAM six bottles of wine later and empty is staggering to Walmart counter buying necklace, bracelet ( with bonus matching headband) as boyfriend #4 is making dinner reservations, #6 in line with lingerie while #7 plowing her in backseat

        • #355141

          Wait? You were responding to me? I thought you said it couldn’t happen and it is only to stop future advances from a guy you don’t want.

          For me, yes. But then you made me think deeper about it and that is way one of those types could benefit from saying they had boyfriend

          Girls are twisted and play alot of games. I haven’t had a girlfriend in 20+ years. Not proud of it just how it is and I dont mean girlfriend girlfriend
          , I mean a pal that I hang out with or talk on the phone with. I find them despicable and shallow.

        • #355369

          Thanks for that and yes girls play more games than boys. At least you have sis and Dad , and there are many women who don’t need girlfriends and still thrive in the world ,right?

          It is a tiny tiny consolation …but you also have me!

          Aww how cute! Thanks nems. I am cool without The Girlfriend, I am quite the loner and suits me well. I cringe when I think to my last cronie. She left a note in my dad’s door with her number asking him to pass it on to me, he did but I never called

          After that is was Beverly, we worked together at the craft store and would go out for beers after work. I really liked her, older than me but we got on well. Store closed and we lost touch
