Trying to buy tickets to a concert from this guy on Tues night. He says he's in downtown so when I went up to say bye to Mindy I called him up to see if I could get them. Turns out he was in LA or something and wasn't coming back until morrow night. So we set up a time Wed and he kept changing it based o his flight info. He finally came up with 8:15 and meeting spot and I said "Yeah. I'll be looking for other tix during the day, but if I don't find any I can meet then." Does that not say I will meet him? Unless otherwise stated?
Wed night comes and 8:15 comes and he doesn't show. I ask if he was coming and he replies that his flight doesn't come in until like 9:20 and asked if I still wanted to meet him. I wasn't hanging around downtown for another hour or two. I went home. When was he going to tell me his flight changed?
He claims that "she was going to look for other tix and would get back to me". I never said I'd get back to him. When he asked if we could meet at 8:15 I said "Yeah." What part of that says I won't? Even if I am looking for other tix that day, I didn't back out of the meet. And even if I was supposed to get back to him, when was he going to tell me his flight changed and HE had to back out? Tables flipped here. They say to be blunt with boys. Is yes and no answers no blunt enough? I should understand that he put SOME assumption in there. But it still makes me mad that he assumed.
Not only did he somewhat insult me when I talked to him on the phone by asking if my mom was there to talk to or "whoever was texting me". "Yeah, that was me..." But then he stands me up and offers a late night meeting. Pff. I was hurting, tired, and wanted to go home to bed.
The boy still wanted his tix so I said HE could go get the tix from flaky. I arranged yet another time and place and sent the boy. The guy wanted to meet downtown again. I was like dude, I've been downtown twice now and haven't caught you. I'm not going down again. You have to meet me halfway or lower the price cuz I'm running out of gas money and I still have to have gas to even get to the stupid concert! C'mon, help me out here. He agreed to meet halfway and I sent the boy.
The left the phone on while he chatted with the guy and the guy knew I was pissed at him and quit so I sent the boyfriend. Thats when he mentioned the "she said she would get back to me last night" blah blah. Untrue statements. His assumptions. The boy didn't know he left his phone on and I was yelling and cursing at this guy loudly thru the phone. He heard some muffled angry yells and picked up his phone and saw I was still on the line. Angry.
I think the part that made me really mad at the guy or just myself was when I told the boy I got ditched. It wasn't a big deal to me at the time. Max and I were bored and nothing was on TV so we took a ride, no biggie. But when the boy learned I went up to a meet without confirming he'd be there first he kinda made fun of me or made me feel stupid? I dunno. I'm sure there some underlying emotion going on there.
But the fact is that we got tickets to the concert now, finally, without the help of the guy selling them really. *mutters profanities* Multiple bands all day: Blue October, Panic! at the Disco, Pepper, Family of Year, The Deer Hunter, Airborne Toxic Event, etc.
Moving on!! The second concert in my life. By concert I mean like concerts that people actually want to go see, like rock concerts, bands that they have loved for years, actual concerts not just guests 'stars' showing up at rodeos, bars, or whatever.
