I’m a very nice tolerant person. Maybe a little too nice and tolerant. I am sharing this story because it is actually pretty funny and it was sweet revenge No worries, no one was physically hurt or anything. Let me just say I “played the game” in order to teach this guy a lesson! Even if it didn’t teach him a lesson it got to him and the reaction is enough for me!
Late spring/beginning of summer this guy, we shall call him ALB (ALabama Boy- because he LOVES Alabama football), had been calling me, texting me, and facebooking me- basically talking the talk. ALB repeatedly asked me on several dates but for some reason he ALWAYS had to cancel the date. “Oh my parents are having me over for dinner” “Oh I sprained my ankle at softball” “Oh I have to work late it’s the end of the month and I have to get my numbers up” etc. etc. Ofcourse the first time I was like ummm ok….. but this guy KEPT calling even after all of the failed dates. I guess I should of just stopped taking his calls, texts but honestly I really didn’t care to go out with him and was just like whatever.
I finally had it with ALB when he planned this great date out and seriously talked about it non stop and hyped it up so much but ofcourse didn’t come through. I’m not going to lie, I was excited and I really thought he was for real this time. WRONG!
ALB texts me the day of the date while at work with, “I’m not feeling well and going to the doctor, I’ll keep you posted.”
Okay so I knew this pattern but being the nice sweet girl I am I text back with, “I hope you get to feeling better! Let me know what they say.”
ALB-”The dr says I have an ulcer so we’re going to have to cancel the date.”
AN ULCER? REALLY? That’s when I was like enough is enough! So I just text back with “OK hope you get better soon” and decide that I was no longer going to respond to anything.
ALB later that day/early evening- “Yeah I’m just feeling so bad with this ulcer!”
no response from me
ALB early evening-”I’m going to my parent’s for some TLC”
no response from me
ALB in the evening-”I’m sorry about cancelling the date.”
no response from me
ALB late in the evening-”Well it was nice knowing you take care!”
Okay so I read this and I’m like uhhh what? So I text him with “?”
ALB- “You never cared about me feeling sick and having an ulcer! So have a nice life!”
HAHAHA I’m sorry but that just solidified the reasoning to not communicate with ALB again.
Fast forward to the end of the summer. I’m leaving for a beach road trip early in the morning with 3 other friends. In the car around 8:30am I get a text from ALB saying “hey” Mind you I haven’t communicated with ALB since the ulcer incident a few months back. I tell my friends in the car the story and they immediately tell me I need to mess with ALB. At first I protest because I just don’t like doing mean things to people but then my friends remind me how ALB continuously took advantage of my patience and niceness and used an ULCER as one of his excuses so I give in and say okay you tell me what to text and do and I’ll do it.
I text ALB back with hey how are you and ALB asks if I want to go to his pool that day. I respond with sure what time. He says now. I say ummm it’s 8:30am how bout 11:00? He says okay see you then! He then texts again with, “on your way over pick up a pack of cigarettes for me!”
My friends and I then conjure up a story that I will text ALB back close to 11am with “Sorry I can’t make it my friends got tickets to the Alabama game and we are heading to Tuscaloosa this afternoon.” Knowing he is a HUGE Alabama fan and I’m a HUGE Georgia fan it would just be ridiculous.
I’m about to text him when I get a text from him.
ALB-”In my swimming trunks. Where are you?”
Me-”Sorry I can’t make it my friends got tickets to the Alabama game and we are heading to Tuscaloosa this afternoon.”
I then see ALB calling my cell phone. I don’t answer and he leaves a voicemail. My friends and I listen to it over the speakers in the car and can’t stop dying laughing.
Luckily I have a recording of this voicemail for you all to listen to. Just click on the link to download the .wma file or paste the following url into your browser: http://www.box.net/shared/6xb60nfh4v
*Warning* It’s so completely ridiculous and full of obscene words. hahaha But trust me you’ll want to hear this one!
My favorite line, “You don’t even KNOW how to get to Tuscaloosa!”
We are on I-20 heading towards Charleston so after hearing the crazy voicemail I snap a picture on my cell phone of the road and say “20 West to Tuscaloosa right???” ALB responds with , “No”
We decide to mess with him more and proceed to take a picture of all of us in the car and send to him.
- Bama Bound!
In case you can’t see the sign says Roll Tide Roll Bama Bound!
Upon reaching the beach I post this picture on facebook and say “Oops went the wrong way on 20 and ended up at the beach. F-bama!”
hehehe Tuscaloosa has the best beaches!
