I met Arthur* last year when I was invited for a drink by a close friend. I’m sorry about this but I can be very discriminative sometimes, and with this particular person, I felt just.. that, discriminative, I mean.
I don’t know, but there was something off about him, for me. It’s harsh for me to say it but I will say it anyway, I didn’t like him. But as a matter of common courtesy, I didn’t snub him or anything.
The following day, I received a text message from an unknown number. But since he identified himself, I knew right away that it was the Arthur that I met the day before. Still trying to be polite, I texted him back and asked him how he was. We exchanged text messages until I felt I had enough so, I invented something to do and said my goodbye. Obviously, he wanted to befriend me. Well, I couldn’t find anything wrong with that.
The following day, he texted again, then the next day and the next. By then, I already got used to receiving text messages from him which are basically friendly and harmless. Then, he started to invite me to come over for their town fiesta which is still five months away.
I said that was very nice of him to invite me and that I’ll think it over. Then he said that he didn’t want me to think it over, he wanted me to say ‘yes’ right then and there. So, I said I couldn’t do that, that it’s still five months away and something important might come up. He said that’s why he was telling me about it as early as then, so, I could set aside other matters and give way for their town fiesta in my schedule.
Well, I was beginning to get pissed off but I had to be polite, so I said, I’ll try. But he wouldn’t take ‘no’ for an answer. So, I said I didn’t say no, I said 'I’ll try. But it wasn’t good enough for him. He said he wanted me to come.
I said, I’ll try. That’s the only answer I could give him, take it or leave it.
Who is this guy???
I didn’t text him back again. EVER.
