Why Sometimes I Hate Boys Wednesday Part Deux

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

-McBicep"

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."

WTF.

OMG! LMAO! I love this post- maybe McBicep and you aren't MFEO- there are other guys out there that will love you better. As your BFF I have to tell you that maybe I agree with Barbie's last comment- gay maybe? or just plain weird. He just needs to kiss you ASAP. It could happen ADN. TTFN! CUL8ER!

Okay...maybe he has not left the pre-pubescent stage. Or has a fettish for text messaging...within e-mails. Hmmm, I don't know about this one.

Hey, after all, CoE is Computer Science light. And that is clearly dork lingo.

BTW, thanks for the link!

I must be REALLY old cuz I don't know what TTYL means. I could make a whole lot of guesses, how about Till Tuesday, Your Love. That's what I'm putting my money on.

i think it's time you showed him your blog. maybe that will evoke a response.

hopefully not in lame-o text terms.

ps: TTFN = ta-ta for now. DUH. :)

Welcome to the world of men. I think any married woman can agree that when you pick a man you are going to get the whole package: muscles, insensitivity and all… Trust me there will be some moments when you will think to yourself, “How could I be so dumb to choose someone so DUMB?” Nevertheless, it is completely worth it on those nights that you get to snuggle up on the couch together in your P.J.s and cheer on your favorite Sunday Night Football team… When you just finished cheering for the winning touch down and he leans over and softly kisses you on the forehead and squeezes you in tight. Trust me at that moment you will think to yourself “Go ahead be the stupidest Neanderthal on the planet I don’t care, there is nothing that you could do to make me stop loving you.” Anyway, you will see that stupidity is inevitable. Case and point: I received an email from my cousin's husband the other day and he actually closed it by writing “PIECE out.”
