I had a moment today, a moment that I've dreaded for a long time! I ran into my ex boyfriend and his wife at the gas station today. I have not blogged about my ex much because he is such a thing of the past, why rehash the past when the present and future is so much brighter? I won't go into much detail, but I caught my ex cheating on me with the woman he's married to now. On the outside, I stayed strong and didn't flinch to him, but on the inside it killed me. I thought that what we had would actually last, I was different from every other woman he had been with. I was a "good" girl compared to all of his other bad girls. I should have known then that he wouldn't appreciate a nice, hard working, educated woman like myself. I should have known that once a dog always a dog, but I thought I could change him. (Never again!)
So anyways, I pulled up to the gas pump, got my debit card out, slid my card and started pumping my gas. I was in my own world actually, Lady Gaga's Bad Romance was on XM, I was singing lowly & dancing at the pump when I looked up and first saw her get out of the car to go pay for their gas. That didn't stop me from singing and dancing to myself though! Then the ex gets out of the car, looks over and says, damn you ride like that now? I looked at him & said in the most sarcastic bitch voice ever yes I do, this is what success looks like. Do you know what his response was? OMG I wanted to punch him when he said this..."the wife is pregnant again." I just looked at him....amazed. I said oh that's great, now more of my tax dollars will go towards taking care of your 5 kids, but I'd rather it be my tax dollars than my whole pay check. He didn't say a word because by that time, "the wife" was walking back to the car scowling at me. I finished pumping my gas, looked at him & said now watch success as it drives away. To that I got no response, I got in my car, turned up my music and drove off.
He text me about 10 minutes ago to ask why I can't just be cordial with him. Why should I be cordial? We have no ties to each other, damn sure don't have any kids together, our families aren't close, we aren't close, as far as I'm concerned he doesn't exist, so why should we be cordial? Clearly he's an idiot! I'm not going to be his chick on the side - he has his "catch" and trust me she's definitely not a catch. She's 27, unemployed, uneducated, and pregnant again. Coming from her mouth - she doesn't have to work or go to school because her man makes sure she has everything she needs, plus going to school, working, and being a mom is just too much work.
Did I mention that she was a catch? ;)
