Updates and other Stuff

Several days back I blogged about a friend and his new "chickie". The new girlfriend was strange and I wondered how and if I should tell him. Many of you left me great comments about ways to tell him the chick was weird, or if I should say nothing at all.

At the time I decided to wait and see if there was a smooth way to broach the subject with him. I didn't have to.....

When I walked into work today, I could immediately see that something was bothering him. I told him to "spill it" and he told me to log onto yahoo personals (his account, I don't have one). He then told me that yesterday evening he had logged on to suspend his own account (because he wanted to be with her) and noticed that she had updated hers. He looked at it and saw she had just updated it that afternoon, she was still looking..... Needless to say he was flaming angry and called me just awhile ago to say he ended it with her. ( The sad part is that she was talking about giving him a key to her place...you don't say that to someone and then update your personals page).

This is part of the reason, I don't date guys I meet in bars...I don't date guys out of personals (yes Halo the guys I did date of the personals was back when I was 18...) So where are all the good ones????? Maybe all the good ones blog, or live in other states besides California....LOL

On to other subjects....

There is a lady that I work with that I feel sorry for. She brings so much drama into her life and she makes me exhausted just hearing about it.

For instance....all last week we heard about this really hot date she had on Sunday...she was on cloud nine. On Friday she came into the office to pick up her pay check and was down in the dumps. I asked why, and she told me that some person she knew put an "ugly" picture of her on myspace and she "just knew" the guy say the picture and would not want to go on a date with her. In my head I thought "What the f***". Out loud I said "oh I am sure he didn't see the picture and if he judges you on a silly picture, he isn't much of a guy." But she continued on...she was going to die a old spinster.....she was so fat, ugly, her skin was ......blah, blah blah....

All of us girls have days when we feel ucky, fat, ugly etc....But most of us only share that quietly with our close friends, not in an office setting where many people can hear you.

People need to understand an office is not the place to air your dirty laundry, sob stories and other dramas....

Ah, sorry about your friend's disappointment, but you were suspicious from the beginning. You are good at reading people!

Love the new profile pic!

Em - thanks, that pic was taken in Monterey, Ca. Gorgeous place!

I was suspicious of the "new chick"..and I found out today that she is also bipolar. People seem to sometimes use that as an excuse to have bad behavior. (note this is not a slam to all that have bipolar, I know many that have it and are fairly normal.)

It always amazes me how people are so willing to just tell all kinds of personal things about themselves to just about anyone. Especailly coworkers. I've known people to tell me stuff I would never tell to anyone.

That friend of yours is better off without that woman. She was clearly a weirdo.

I'm glad your friend got rid of that woman she was bad news.

I don't understand people who will bare every little detail of their lives to co-workers. It is just so unprofessional.

Jay - When we blog, I/we get personal sometimes, but this is a safe environment to spew, and talk about things that don't normally get aired. I, too can not stand it when people in an office setting get too personal and tell way more than I want to know.

Whimsical - I am happy too, even more so that I didn't have to say anything to him.

Uuuuuh ... tell your friend that he doesn't want to date somebody so stupid as to UPDATE AN ONLINE DATING PROFILE WHILE DATING SOMEBODY. My gosh that just stupid.

Anyway ... I've tagged you. Visit my blog for more information.

Your friend sure knows how to pick the winners. Good thing it didn't get too far...

I want to know where all the good ones are, too!! And, by GOOD, I mean kind-hearted, fun, spontaneous, polite, funny, artistic, musically inclined, professional, serious about their job, and loves their family, cool cars & dogs. Oh, and most importantly, they have to be HOT & good in bed. Whenever I want it. LOL!

And about that first story, I have a guy friend who has had a similar story about a chick he met on Match.com. Only the story was way worse, and she was a psycho. =:(

Online dating is a waste of time.
