Has someone ever said something so stupid and irrational that your well honed intuitive mind can only say "huh?"A statement that is so moronic that your neurons don't even begin sparking but decide to prepare themselves for the next mental task you plan to dispense.
Here is the scenario.Aco strolls into the apartment after a long day at the office and having beaten the libido into submission at the gym to find a notice on the fridge saying this Aco & R (other roomies) we need to settle the bills for December now otherwise we will have no cable this weekend (also pegged to the amount is the elec bill).We need to be asking about the bills and paying them on time.That sounds normal apart from one thing.
This is the second week of January.Aco left the apartment on the 3rd of December after promptly settling November bills only to return refreshed and broke after Christmas holidays.
So I do what I do best, I ignore the notice.So one day roomie walks in finding me in the kitchen and asks me if I have seen the notice.I say I have and add there is no way I am paying for an elec bill that was incurred when I was not here same goes for the cable.Roomie says that he was in and out and that it was R who was around full time but as a member of the household (since when did we become a family) I have to pay.I say no way, then here comes one of the most imbecilic statements I have heard in a long long time, "You must have left something plugged in."
At this point my brain ran over what we could call intellectual road kill, a train no rather a mkokoteni of reasoning so half-witted that it didn't deserve to be acknowledged on the road of intellect but just ran down.I was like "huh" and ignored him.Firstly my Mum always told me when you travel disconnect everything from the wall (during them days KPLC could have a power outtage and you could come back from hols to find every piece of electronics in your house fried to a crisp due to a power surge) that and the fact that I never leave my t.v on.So I doubt a telephone charger connected to nothing would charge up the bill.
Anyway Aco will do what he does best,disavow the existance of that bill and if pestered let Instigatorxxl take over.A man should be allowed to tolerate many things but stupidity is not one of them.
Moving on I have a gal pal whom gives out this lesbian vibe.So her best pal is a good pal of mine too and works at the coffee shop we have in the library.After my evening class I strolled over and asked her whether her pal was a lesbian and she was like "no, but so many people ask me that.She actually confides in me how she would like to get a boyfriend and how her love is often not reciprocated by the boys she likes."Anyway this chic has a strong personality (not in my books) and is kind of eccentric.It also doesnt help that she is an theatre major so most of her friends are eccentric and gay to boot.When it comes to women when it comes to those with strong personalities I am either attracted to them and we could become good friends or it is instant conflict and I am forced to dispatch them to oblivion with my gleaming sword of logic and shield of sarcasm.What I would like to know is what kind of men do women with strong personalities date since most of them can't stand weak-willed men and aren't found attractive by strong willed men?Also any KBW ladies out there who have strong personalities how do you deal with this and how does it affect your dating life?That's my blog, starting in one place and finishing in another.....
