Dear Girlfriends of mine who have boyfriends,
Never call me and say this: “My boyfriend is busy today so do you want to do something?”
Aside from the fact that it’s rude, it implies the following:
1) You only think of doing something with me when your boyfriend has other plans.
2) You are so dependent on him that you can’t be without him.
3) He has now left you in the lurch and you need some entertainment.
Frankly, I could give a rat’s ass about item numbers 2 & 3. It’s the first one that has me stewing. When you call and say that, note how I say that I can’t accommodate your wishes because I’m already busy. (Busy as in, taking a toothpick to the space between the planks of my hardwood floors and picking out any stray dirt and trapped dog hair.) And please note for future reference, that I’m not one of those “couples only” girls. When I have a boyfriend, I have no problem bringing friends along, nor do I have a problem blowing him off for you all. But you people, you are making me sick. You have set the women’s movement back another 40 years and I hate you for it.
