Meeting Andrea

Andrea – meeting attempt gone terribly wrong

So it was time to finally meet, we talked a lot on the phone and agreed to meet, I said I’d call when I was done with work (it was a Saturday morning but unfortunately I had to work).

Me: I should expect done by 3.30, I’ll call you then 2:26 PM 

(Here things went terribly wrong, I was on the way to meet her when a good friend of mine called me that his car broke done. Instead of telling her hoping that she would understand I decided to not mention it and tried to stall – bad decision!).

Andrea:  Where are u 4:12 PM 

Me: Call dropped, now it keeps saying pending, bad reception I guess 4:15 PM 

Me: I can’t call you 4:16 PM 

Andrea:  Ok, where r u 4:16 PM

(That was me trying to buy some more time since I had to toe my friends car to the shop. Even he said: “Go man, it’s ok!” but he had helped me a lot so I didn’t want to leave him like this)

Me: But then make it 40 or 50 then I’m done for today 4:35 PM

Andrea:  I see its a joke….thanks 5:18 PM 

Andrea:  Perhaps its just you. 5:19 PM 

(I lost track of time and all of a sudden it was almost 7 PM – she must have been very upset, a few more nasty texts with bad language that I won’t post here and 19 (!) missed calls)

Me: It’s hard to listen to you when you constantly twist my words 6:52 PM 

Me: Hello? 7:45 PM 

Me: Some of your texts I got later, it’s probably simply not supposed to happen but today’s actions didn’t happen with any bad intention but I should have walked back to the car where I had service and call you 10:26 PM 

Me: ok, you’re not answering anymore, guess I lost you. This is probably beyond repair 11:42 PM 

So I messed that up pretty good, she didn’t answer anymore.

While most of you and me back then believe(d) that this was it – it wasn’t!
