I call them emotional blindsides. I’ve had people come at me with the most absurd crap out of the blue and at the worst possible time. I had one guy read something personal I wrote 6 months beforehand and then ASKED me about it — to “explain myself.” Um … gee, well seeing as it was a personal journal entry where I wanted to purge my negative feelings about an argument that happened between us (again 6 months prior). Having a hissy about it 6 months after-the-fact and admitting you read something private kinda makes ‘you’ (that person) the jerk. He was SO ridiculously emotionally fragile about it, and of course, he pulled that crap mere minutes before I needed to leave for work. It is always before I had to leave for something important, never when it would inconvenience him. Ultimately, I got tired of babysitting his ego and making assurances. He was a loser and I should have left him the first time it happened.
