I really feel like I need to clarify something with the Universe, cause the men of Atlanta have really gotten me twisted. Twisted! There is no situation, reality or bizarro world where I would EVER engage in any activities with a married man. Nothing disgusts me more than a man who is disloyal to his marriage vows.
Married men flirt with me a lot. I hate it. I don’t know what it is about me that makes them think I’d be down with adultery, but I am not. I truly don’t even like to make eye contact with a married man. I don’t even want to give them an opening.
Recently, I have come across two such snakes. Take, for instance, a man we’ll call Daycare Dad. One day I was picking Regan up and as I walked into the classroom, her (now gone) teacher said, “So and So’s daddy turned around and was looking at your booty.” My response, “we should tell So and So’s mommy.” Homie don’t play that.
There is another husband that flirts with me incessantly. I am polite and make minimal chit chat, but nothing more than that. Some days he has on his wedding ring, other days he does not. Then today, he crossed the line. I received an email that basically said, “Hey, Babs. I notice you’re losing weight. You are looking good.”
Ummm, okay, where should I start. Number one, I’m not losing weight. Nope not a single pound. It’s my tan that makes me look thinner. Number two, you shouldn’t be emailing me anything, at all, ever. If your household needs to communicate with my household, then your wife should do it. Number three, what makes you think my weight is up for discussion? How rude! What if I was sensitive about it? And finally, I am completely insulted that you would think I was so STUPID and DESPERATE that I would take that kind of bait! I will die cold, alone and with cobwebs all up in my Queen Victoria before I ever did something like that.
I don’t really know him or his wife, but I know she is super nice. And she probably doesn’t know her husband is a snake. There is another situation that occurred with this same guy, but I don’t know who reads my blog, so I will keep those details to myself.
I haven’t decided how or if I will respond to this email. This is someone I see every day, so I don’t want to make for an awkward situation, but at the same time I need to shut this sh!t down!
How would you handle it?
