TEXT MESSAGE PEST...

”description”Dear Diary: As you know, last week I went on a date with a man I met in a bar. As I told you, it went pretty well. We parted ways with casual plans to meet up this weekend. I was going to be busy at the Lemurs show, but wanted to meet up with him afterwards. For anonymity purposes, we’ll call him Steve. Steve was down with this plan as he was going to watch the UFC fight. However, it seemed the Gods were against this fledgling relationship taking off....
I was having a great time at La Zona Rosa with my old buddy Elias, but Steve was already drunk and the UFC fight ended early and not well. SO there I am, having a good time with my friends, and there he is, drunk, getting belligerent that I haven’t met up with him yet. I managed to ignore the first 17 calls without getting too annoyed, but when the aggravating text messages began, I could hardly concentrate on the Lemurs. For example, what would you do if you received this message: “where r u? r relationship is on the rocl” I presume he meant on the rocks, but how can one be sure, when I didn’t even know we were in a relationship. They got steadily worse. The next one I got just said “sex” and the 7 after that kept telling me he was at Betsy’s. Did I mention that I was also being harassed by 1 phone call every 45 seconds? My friend Elias finally took it upon himself to answer the phone and tell him, and I quote “We know where you are, and we’re not coming. STOP CALLING ME!” Phew! Harsh behavoiur calls for harsh measures. I thought that would be the end of it and apparently the next text I got affirmed that thought. “OVER. It said. It was nice knowing ya.” OK, good, now we can move on, without the annoying Steve. The next morning however, I get this text “you broke my heart last night, it’s in a million pieces.” OMG. R U KIDDING? Do you know when you text someone, that they have a piece of evidence they can keep forever? Did you know that if that person is on the radio they may tell all their friends about it? Well, now you do. Keep your silly text messages to a minimum when you’re drinking. Trust me – they can come back and bite you in the arse.
