I guess UnfortunatelyNamedWorkGirl is involved in some hot project, so all day Monday all I heard was UnfortunatelyNamedWorkGirl this, UnfortunatelyNamedWorkGirl that.
When I called LensCrafters yesterday afternoon, the chick answered the phone with, "Thanks for calling LensCrafters, this is UnfortunatelyNamedLensCraftersGirl, how may I help you?"
These events did little to prepare me for last night, when HornDog decided to start poking around in areas that I thought had been settled a long time ago.
"So Dave," he asked. "You and LaptopGirl used to go out, right?"
So of course I told him that no, we'd never been a couple, but that everybody had always assumed that we were. This is old hat to me.
Then the guy had to be a dick.
"Well," he said, "She went out with everyone else, so I guess it's an understandable mistake."
What a fuckwad.
Then, to make matters worse, he proceeded to badmouth her some more, so her name became the most-uttered word at Rich O's for a while.
I bit my tongue. I wanted to leap to her defense, like I've done several times in the past, but I didn't. Not this time.
I'm not sure why. I think it's because I didn't want to hear her name any more. It's funny how I can go weeks without hearing that name, then all of a sudden I can't seem to hear anything else.
