An ex-boyfriend from 18 years ago called my work twice yesterday looking for me. He insisted on leaving his number with my assistants because he’s in my town for the weekend. I haven’t talked to this kid in at least 10 years, and we didn’t part well. I’m not sure what makes him think I want to see him. He is very accessible on the internet, so if I wanted access to him I could have had it years ago. I, on the other hand, go out of my way to keep a low profile. I don’t have a Facebook page. I clearly don’t want to be found. I have no interest in catching up with random people who orbit my life with the infrequency of Halley’s Comet. Furthermore, his approach to the situation tells me that his worst qualities have only ripened with age. He’s obviously known for quite some time that he would be in town covering a particular event. A courteous and thoughtful person would have sent an email with a little advance notice. Instead, he called my place of employment multiple times in one day like some sort of crazed stalker and just assumed I’ll be elated to drop my packed schedule to accommodate his last minute demands. Selfish much? That’s why we broke up asshole. Unfortunately, I’m going to the event on Saturday so there’s a chance we could run into each other….Ugh…I hate ex-boyfriend run-in paranoia.
