Now, I can guess you’ve got a million answers to that question, but I’m here to tell you a couple of my answers.
It’s been a very frustrating and trying week already and it’s only Tuesday.
Lord help us.
1. Wasted Time
About a month ago, a guy I used to date casually decides to come back into my life and justifies the disruption with the “I’m ready for something more serious now” line.
This, of course, was great news to me at the time because this guy is great on paper and gets a lot of things checked off on the ol’ mental dating checklist. Don’t judge the list, because you know you’ve got one too.
I had always thought of our relationship as an ellipses because it felt very unfinished. So, I was pretty damn happy when he finally came around to being ready for something.
Turns out that was a load of crap. Homeboy is a player and has more game than the damn Mandalay Casino and I got taken for all I’m worth.
After all of the “I totally just want someone to be there’s” and the “I’m so tired of all the games,” he decides that maybe he’s really not as ready for something more as he thought.
This is hella frustrating because he was the one who started this whole thing again! I was just fine going on about my life, minding my own business and then, all of a sudden, WHAM! He decides to come back into it and trounces all over it and wastes my time.
That’s what’s so damn frustrating: all the wasted time I spent on this tool.
2. Wasted Money
If you’re anywhere in the Midwest, you know that it’s been rainy and stormy for the past week. All of this would be fine and dandy, because who doesn’t enjoy a good summer rain to cool things off a bit, but I had make-up tickets to go see our hometown baseball team play last night and there were thunderstorm warnings all across the county.
The reason I had these make-up game tickets was because it stormed the last time I went to the game with a friend for a work outing. So I’m already a bit annoyed that I had tickets to go back on a day when it was going to rain yet again.
I decided to go anyway because these tickets include free beer and food. But as soon as I finish my first brew, it starts raining.
And I’m talking, like, thunderstorming to the extreme: wind, rain, thunder and lightning. The whole shebang.
The game gets postponed and I’m looking at my weather app seeing that it’s not going to get any better because it’s supposed to storm all night.
I get in my car and start driving home. I get about halfway home when the storm stops and the sun comes out and it’s beautiful.
Like, what the actual f*ck?? This is just my week…
I would have turned around to go back to the game, but I was already too damn frustrated, so I just decided to bite the bullet and deal with the fact I paid $58 for two tickets to this stupid game and didn’t get the value out of them at all.
That’s what’s so damn frustrating: wasted money.
3. Wasted Energy
I’ll keep this one short because it’s already a long post. But the last thing about this week that’s been frustrating is when you make plans to do something with friends and put energy into planning and getting things set up, only to have them cancel at the last minute.
So, I guess what I’m trying to say is that it looks to be like tonight’s activities will consist of a Friends marathon and a large glass of wine…or three.
Hopefully tomorrow will hold something a little more fun and a little less frustrating.
Until next time,
