She cost me my job.

Out of eight or nine jobs, I’ve only been fired from one job in my lifetime, and even then I wasn’t really fired. They ‘ended my seasonal employment’ instead. Considering about a week before they had officially hired me on full-time to work year-round. Yeah, I guess I was fired.

I had a job at a department store doing overnight work during the holiday season when I was 17. Working 10pm to 6am had its perks, namely being able to take a break from the significant other. She was good about it though. She always drove me to work every night and ,like clockwork, picked me up before she went to work herself in the morning. She had her times of being a really great girlfriend. One night of her taking me to work almost negated all of that.




She went to drop me off one night when she wanted to have one of those ‘state of the relationship’ talks. I really needed to be on time at work because after a ten-minute grace period, they locked the doors for the night, so I told her it’d have to wait.

Her- Fine. I guess your job is more important than me.
Me- Is that a trick question? My job is not more important than you.

(eye contact to sell it)

Thank you for the ride, I love you, and we’ll talk later.

She opted not to kiss me (as if I cared) and I went to work. This was at 10:05pm.

At 11pm or so, my phone rings. Stupid me had it in my pocket while I worked. I answered it to find out my girlfriend was still in the parking lot. She had been there for an hour apparently, maybe to cool down from insane to just plain crazy. She did that a lot actually. Yet somehow I was surprised each time she did it.

She’s crying and screaming and doing whatever girls do when they’re mad and it became really annoying. If it was anyone else, I would have been concerned. This girl did this quite often, so it's never anything special and my patience often wore thin. I attempted to talk her down and get her to go home. I was really never successful at that, but I felt good about it this time. She sounded like she had calmed down and we hung up. I thought to myself, "I handled that really well. Maybe this is a turning point in our relationship."

About ten minutes later I am pulling a pallet down one of the aisles by the front of the store when my phone rings again. I wondered why I hadn't learned to throw it in my locker just before I answered it. It was the girlfriend, of course, but this time she was standing at the front door threatening to bang on the windows and repeatedly ring the doorbell (yes, stores have/had doorbells). This was not what I needed at all. I liked my job and I wasn't in the mood to lose it. To prevent such a scene, I left my shit and I snuck outside to deal with the problem.

I don’t really remember what the argument was about. All I remember is it was big and it was nasty and in a dark parking lot. That’s how unimportant our issues actually were. I’m sure it was something to the nature of me putting my job before our ‘love' or something. All I know is I got called to the executive office the following week to be ‘let go’. I was told this had nothing to do with what had happened the week prior, but I knew she was full of shit. She went on to tell me how ‘poor’ my performance was and so on. Whatever. Fuck her. I went to see my girlfriend afterwards and hate-fucked her in retaliation. She was into shit like that.

Fucking Psycho.

”It's not as if you liked that job anyway. I'm glad you got fired. Now we can spend more time together and I can help you find a better place to work with better hours so I can see you more.”

I have one of those "I'll take everything that's important to you" sorts right now and, lemme tell ya, that bitch is scary!!! Nobody sees how this is a subtle form of abuse because "women don't abuse", right? Sure they don't.

Why do u guys stay with these crazy bitches?

I had several, if not all of them behave like this at one point or another.

But this one in particular really was nuts. She would show up at my job with daggers in her eyes, etc. She was 30 years old and actually believed that her father thought she was still a virgin. Every time her dad and handicapped mom would show up for a weekend visit, I had to move all my shit out of her apartment and pretend I didn't even know her.

She would insist I be at her apartment when she'd come home from visiting them and would be sometimes two hours late. She didn't want me having a key so I would usually be on the verge of pissing my pants, waiting in my car outside.

One time I finally was able to convince her to give me a key and it was ten minutes to ten when she got back. I happened to be watching the tail of a two hour movie about a woman that got raped by seven or eight guys in a bar and I really wanted to see how that movie ended. F***! I still don't know, dammit!

The bitch showed up at ten minutes to ten fuming mad at me. She came stomping into the apartment demanding I get my ass off the couch and help her with some bags of shit she brought back from her parents' house. I tried to explain to her I wanted to see the end of the movie I started. She went nuts, grabbing all my shit that accumulated there since the last visit from her parents and putting it by the door, screaming for me to get the f*** out!

I dragged all my shit out to the car and was down to one more box when she ran to the door and fell on her knees clinging to my leg like a small child, pleading with me not to leave. I walked into the kitchen and grabbed the biggest Ginsu knife I could find. I walked right up to her and violently threw her on the floor by wrapping one leg around the back of hers and shoving her to the floor and held her down by her neck. I put the knife right up to her throat and told her if she ever called me again I'd come back and cut her f***ing head off. I never would've, but she didn't know that.

That was the end of it. That's from about 20 years experience with nutty women.

Holy hell! Did we date the same girl?

Anonymous said...

I'm not sure. Maybe we did. I found a big huge dildo called "The Black Mambo" http://i4.ebayimg.com/06/i/001/2e/83/2fb7_1.JPG in her closet way at the bottom under the stack of folded towels. The only time it would be moved was when one of her ugly girlfriends would come to visit while I would be at work. I threw out the batteries. Can you believe it? I was jealous of a freakin dildo! That may have been why she took away my key the first time.

^^ That is one hell of a dildo. The Homewrecker.

Sounds like you guys are a bunch of a-holes. No wonder your girlfriends always freak out on you. Knife to the neck? I'd have your legs broken!

Amber said...

Wow, I dated a guy that acted just like this girl. Why I put up with him? I'll never know. Maybe when he gets out of prison he should hook up with this chick. He would be happy to blame the fact that he can't keep a job on someone else lol.

fuck man, ive just got rid of a psyco like urs after a very hard and long 4 years. one time we went out clubbing and while i was on the dance floor she came up behind me, kicked my legs from under me and accused me of dancing with other women, i said fuck this shit im getting a taxi home. she followed me out side and slapped me across the face infront of every one. i paid for a holiday for us to go to crete in 2007, we went to a bar, she went to toilet and so did i. she got back to where we were sitting b4 i did and when i got there, she started kicking me, screaming at me and again the slap. this is all due to she is a violent drunk. when i spent xmas at her parents, cos i got on so well with her parents she got jealous and started screaming and swearing at me for us to walk home.
i wish i could say im shut of her but she decided to have a 2 week affair and is now pregnant. dont know who father is till dna test in april 2011. after we broke up, if i even try ringing her or txting her, she has police down to mine on harressment allegations....god help me if the kid is mine.....

Webmaster said...

It's amazing that its so easy to get the cops called on us for a phone call.

They stay with them because there are times when the bitch is nice and probably a good fuck, but the balance is way off and it's better to use the hand than deal with this kind of horseshit from anyone. But then of course he might be a fuckup too and there is always 2 sides to all stories.

puh, these stories make me realize i got off lucky with my only slightly crazy break up... made me feel a lot better anyway and had a decent laugh!
