To be clear, yes I did send that email to McBicep.
To be fair, I debated about whether or not to post McBicep's response. I don't want to make him public enemy number one, seeing as how I already get so much flack from people about it; but at the same time, I revel in the fact that it is blaringly obvious why McBicep chose to major in computer engineering and not, say, sensitivity, feelings, and basic people skillz.
That being said, please to enjoy McBicep's response. And let the ridicule begin. Sigh.
"Hey, I'm still alive – just been busy w/ family stuff. I’m driving up tomorrow and I’ll give you a call. TTYL
Before you say anything, I know.
I'm not making excuses for him. I think that beyond the age of 13 there is no appropriate reason to use the phrase "TTYL". Ever.
At this point, it's not so much that I'm dating a self-absorbed, inconsiderate guy. It's not that I'm dating a guy who can't remember to practice common courtesy. It's not even that I'm dating a guy who doesn't see the need to call when he's out of town for two weeks.
It's that I'm dating a guy who says "TTYL."
