So I haven’t written a post in a few days, and aside from coming down with something, I was pretty busy over the weekend. So here’s the rundown:
Friday there was a Halloween Costume party at a day-shift officer was throwing, and me and the ol’ lady were invited. Ted was going as well, so we got ready and headed over to his house. A couple of his roommates went as well, and aside from a few others, that was about all the people I knew. It was mostly day-shift employees, and a couple from graves, but overall it was a good time. There were a couple kegs, some food, and a DJ (though the DJ played a bunch of dance and hip hop, both of which I’m not a huge fan of). Me, Gina, and Ted had the most original costumes at the shindig, we were the Bundy’s (Married with Children) and Ted was Lt. Dangle (Reno 911!), complete with shorty shorts. Otherwise there were a bunch of commercial costumes, and a bunch of girls wearing lingerie, or some form of it (of course I didn’t mind). After drinking for a while, I ended up getting dragged onto the dance floor, but I managed to have fun, even though I don’t dance. We were there until about 3 a.m. or so, and then we went home and crashed out.
On Saturday, I had absolutely no plans. Surprisingly, I woke up without much of a hangover. We lounged around and played some EQ2 (more on this in a further post), and later on I found out that Ted was throwing another party that evening. I didn’t plan on going, but Gina said it sounded like fun and we decided at the last minute to go. It wasn’t a “costume required” party, but some people did show up in costume (which included more girls in skimpy outfits). Herbie and Howard were the most original this time around, Howard being a Zombie Doctor, and Herbie a Breathalyzer. We didn’t wear costumes, just went to hang out. This party also came complete with a keg, food, and a DJ (but both nights I managed to eat prior to the party, not expecting food, so I didn’t partake). When we first arrived, there was hardly anyone there, but we hung out for a bit to see if it would liven up. Right when I was getting ready to call it a night, the party showed up, and I put in some calls to friends, and that’s how Herbie and Howard ended up there. Herbie also brought his girlfriend and one of her friends, whom I guess were in costume as well but I couldn’t figure out what the hell they were. They didn’t stay long, Herbie making some comments about the party sucking. Once again I was dragged on the dance floor, but not for as long. Eventually the keg was run dry, and there was no more alcohol in the house, and I figured the party would end soon. It was before 2 a.m., so I hit up Howard to see where they went. They were back at his pad, so we headed over there. Here’s where shit got crazy.
The apartment was quiet when we rolled up, so I didn’t think many people were there. Howard and his cohorts from the party were present, along with Shawn and another dude named AJ. I know the last guy, but not really well. For no apparent reason, AJ got an attitude with me, and one thing lead to another, and he wanted to fight with me. Shawn tried to get him to leave unsuccessfully, and a bunch of shit was talked, etc. Eventually they got him to leave and we only stayed a little after that, apologized and went home (there’s more details in there, but I’m sparing them for now). I’m sure more bullshit will come from it, but time will tell.
Now, for the latter part of this post title: why I’m not friends with women. I thought I was pretty good friends with a girl at work. A couple weeks ago, me and Gina went with her and her man to a Gay bar. Reference this post. I had a good time, and so did everyone else. We’ve hung out with them on multiple occasions, and it’s always been cool. Well while we were at the club, the guy said something to Gina about suspecting something between me and his girl. I suppose he’s just noticed we had grown close. She brought this to my attention, and I brought it up to him, telling him we’re just friends. The next day, I hit her up to see if he had said anything to her about it, and he hadn’t. Then they had a conversation about it, in which he denied saying the comment in question, and she comes back to me with comments about how my girl has issues, is trying to stir shit up, and they don’t like her anymore, so we can’t hang out. She then continued by telling me that I’m still cool, but they don’t want to be around her. This didn’t make any sense to me, and I suspect that there’s something else going on there that I don’t know about. Nonetheless, I haven’t spoken to either of them on a personal level since. But now it seems to be spilling over into work.
She’s a Dispatcher for Security. This means she sends us on calls, and clears us for breaks. Basically, the go to person unless we have to go above her to a supervisor. She’s been a fucking Nazi lately, pissing everyone off in general, but it seems like she’s taken some of it out on me. The first day after our last discussion, she seemed to be giving me all of the calls when there were other available officers, and today she seemed to be fucking everyone on their breaks, and has had a negative attitude in general. Part of this I know has to be due to the fact that her and her man have been fighting pretty continuously throughout the past few weeks, but when it’s focused towards me it seems different. Maybe I’m just paranoid, but still, she’s a bitch for having done what she has, and looking back on our “relationship”, I can’t see why I was such good friends with her in the first place.
Honestly, I think women manipulate us without our knowing it. They make us think we like them to get what they want out of us, then toss us to the curb when they’ve gotten it. Leaving us to look back and think “wow, I never really could stand that bitch the whole time”. This is probably true to an extent in relationships as well, but at least I’ve been able to look back on past ones and think “at least it was a good piece of ass while it lasted”. Somehow, that little tidbit makes it so much better than losing a female friend you weren’t doing anything with. But, I’m losing my train of thought, so I’ll leave it at that.
