I’ve ranted about this before on the board, but here it is. I ran into an old buddy from high school on Facebook. We exchange phone numbers after a while, and it was great fun at first remembering the good old days, laughing about our ■■■■ ups, do you remember so-n-so that kind of thing
But then it started getting weird. He was sending me between 35 and 50 texts every morning, and it wasn’t even 6 am. It got annoying, really fast.
I finally had to say something to him about it, basically said ■■■■ off of the text bombing. Invoked for a few days, then I heard from him and we kind of picked up from there. But I really don’t want to talk to the guy everyday, I don’t even talk to my own sister every day.
So I started putting some space between us, not answering his texts for a few days that’s where the thing hoping he would mellow the fuk out. But he kept text bombing me, sending me 15 or 20 messages while I’m on the phone. I can’t count how many times that happened, as well as interrupting what I’m listening to music, reading… He’s even woken me up a few times at 2 in the morning because he was bored. Are you ■■■■■■■ kidding me?
The guy texts like a twelve-year-old on crack.
So the other day, he interrupted yet another one of my phone calls, and when I was done I texted him again. I said, why do you keep doing what I told you not to do, and you know ■■■■■■■ well it pisses me off? He sent me back a text a couple of hours later, but I haven’t read it yet. I know he’s either going to mope, or say something to piss me off, and I just don’t want to deal with it right now.
I know the guy is going through a lot of ■■■■ right now, but I’m not his mother or his therapist. I wouldn’t mind chatting with him once in a while, but not all the time. I wonder if it’s already ruined Beyond repair
Sorry for such a long rant, but I just had to spit that out. What would you do in my situation?
