After getting Dumped in Barrie, I came back home and began the process of “getting over it”. I was now sick with a cold, too. My immune system had gone to shit, working those crazy hours.
I ran into Dandy at one of the stores, while doing a stock transfer.
“Hey,” he said. “I think I saw that chick JJJulie at the mall with some fat guy.”
“Really?” I said. “Are you sure? She’s not from here. She lives in Etobicoke.”
“Yeah,” he replied. “She had pink in her hair right? But, like, faded?”
“Yeah,” I growled. She just dumped me the weekend before, and I knew who the fat guy was, too. “This fat guy. Did he have a shaved head?”
“Yeah dude,” nodded Dandy.
So we just broke up, and she was already seeing this other dude! I confronted her about it, and she eventually admitted to coming to town to “see” him. This is five days after dumping me. Five days! Well, she wasn’t just “seeing him”. I later found out that they “did the deed” that day, before his shift at the local McDonalds.
When he found out that I knew about this, he came into my store to make amends, because he genuinely wanted to make up and be friends. He delivered me a tray of two McDonalds triple thick McShakes as a peace offering.
You have to admit, “Dude I just schtupped your ex, here have a milkshake” is a non sequiter. I’m not laughing at your pain, man, really I’m not. But that is some BONKERS stuff going on, for sure.
Also, that BF5 track has always been awesome. Good choice.
Had to use that song. In fact maybe I’ll use it again in the future!
The milkshakes weren’t even good. As it turns out, I don’t even like McShakes.
Hey, did I manage to make my GI Joe self look really sad and longing in that photo? :)
