Dont Mince Words


Shut up and call, douche

Posted on December 04, 2007 by Marna

Can you get out of future bad behavior by paying forward with an apology? Yes you can. It’s called a pre-alibi.

Beans called and recited a laundry list of business trips and other obligations he had during the month of December. He made it sound like he was being deployed and didn’t know when he’d be coming home. My only response was, “You know my number. Call me when you are available.”

He hasn’t called. But at least I know, he’s gonna be busy. Gonna be busy for a while.
